I purchased this cup with the sole purpose of reviewing it since there isn't much info about it out there (or at least I wasn't able to find it at the time when I was interested in getting it for myself.)

First off, let me just say that I don't see a reason why this cup would have a shorter lifespan than any other silicone cup. Because it is thinner? I don't think so. It feels almost exactly the same as my Iriscup, which I have used exclusively for longer than the 1 year life span of the LITE, and is showing no signs of deterioration, except for staining, which can be easily taken care of.

Second, THIS CUP IS SO SOFT. It is the softest cup I have ever owned, and I have owned MANY. The rim, not so much. I would say the rim is medium/soft. Only a tad softer than the rim on my MCUK. And the stem is softer/more flexible than the stem of the regular Femmecup.
Other than that, by just looking at it, you couldn't tell the difference between the LITE and the regular Femmecup, which I also got for comparison.

If you're like me, these cups will not work for you because, LITE: perfect rim but my muscles would crush the base. Regular FC.: perfect base, but the rim won't let me pee.

I have never done a review in my entire life so let me know if theres anything else you would like to know.
Also, I took pics for softness comparison but I can't figure out LJ.

Does it have the same dimensions as the regular Femmecup? Or is it just a thinner/softer cup? If different, what are they? (To put them on the size charts.)

It is exactly the same length, width, and capacity.

A couple of times I have just uploaded photos elsewhere (Photobucket, etc) and given links to the photos on these pages, like when I've posted sales on mc-sales, etc.

I think the Femmecup is a very pretty one but could never rationalize why that giant rim was there--it looks painful! Anything with a big flange is bad news for me. Even with a classic Meluna I almost couldn't pee. All the cups I've owned since have been among the softest on the market (Lily, Femmycycle, Si-Bell, and Rainbow)

I actually like that rim a lot. The MCUK/femmecup type of rim works best for me. They never leak on me, while the other smoother rims simply does except the ruby cup, don't know why. I never had problem with them interfering with my bladder so that's a relief.

Interesting! I wonder what the specific anatomical differences are that might affect which rim styles work best. Some cup company should get on studying that...

I love the lite version better than the regular. The regular works great for me but the lite is easier to take out. I only wish the holes could be higher up then it would be perfect for my heavy flow.

My exact thoughts! I don't necessarily have a heavy flow but my muscles would squish the base making it even less capacity and higher holes would solve that. But that makes this cup perfect for light flows, there's something for everyone! :D
