I'm a long time cup user (since about 1996) who is STILL on the hunt for her GOLDILOCK's Cup! !
I'm yet to find a cup that doesn't leak!
Cups ALL leaked
1st DIVA Lg.: a bit long, holes clogged
Inside Out-still leaks but feels better
COL?- small holes, too long

2nd Ladycup Lg: holes to low, felt good
COL?: air holes to low

3rd Green Dona Sm.:too small, twisted around a lot
COL?: Too small

4th Fleurcup Lg: good fit, heavy days empty hourly! ?
COL?: Too wide/cervix in cup

5th FEMMYCYCLE: hard to place/open!
COL?: not sealed

6th NaturalMamma: long but not uncomfortable,
Inside Out: feels better
COL?: Too long, too soft, being SQUEEZED?

Soooo now I'm thinking of my next cup totry.
1-Miacup sm.
2-Femmycycle low cervix style
3-Meluna Lg sport shorty
4-Yuuki sm.

I'm wondering should i go for a wider & shorter cup? My cervix will nest in it but will it still have capacity on heavy days?
Or a narrower & shorter cup so cervix can not nest in cup as much?
Holes have to be high I know or none.
Thinking of trying the low cervix FEMMYCYCLE.....I'm soooo ready for my Holy Grail cup!!
Sorry post so long, thanks for reading it & your help, in advance!

I would say if your cervix takes up some of the room in your cup and you are not aiming for to soft of a cup,the small MiaCup may not work? I have the large Miacup and it is my softest cup of all the ones I own with great capacity. It is about the same capacity as the Diva but a little shorter. It does not leak for me unless I let it overflow. I love the cup. Sounds like you are looking for a cup with good capacity but not to soft. I would not recommend the Yuuki sm either, it is firm but the sm is not going to hold much at all. Perhaps others will chime in to give you their thoughts on the other cups you have picked. I wish you luck in your next cup purchase.

Would a Rubycup work, perhaps? It's a bit on the short and wide side but I don't think as wide as the Fleur. It's also middle of the road in softness (all the cups you complained about with the softness are supposed to be among the softest, so you may not need to go as stiff as the Meluna Sport). Not sure about airhole placement. I like their donation program, where they give a cup to a girl in Africa for every cup purchased, but it's too short for me :(

OK Thanks ladies!
I was totally going by the size chart when picking my next try cups.
My Ladycup & Fleurcup is what I was going by.
Is WIDER going to be better? Seems like cervix would only take up more room....

The way the cup was designed according to the company, Femmycycle does not have to fully open to seal or work, so if you found the regular Femmycycle difficult to open, the low cervix variety might not fare any better. When I was inquiring, Femmycyle told me here is not a significant difference in diameter, it is just shorter. I only have the LC style though.

All of the smaller cups you considered will not give you a better capacity than the Large Ladycup. Top capacity for a small cup is around 20ml and Large Ladycup holds about 22ml to the lowest holes. Meluna Large shorty has a max capacity at 21 which is less than your Large Ladycup.

Large Ladycup is the only cup that fit you well. Your only complaint was the obvious reduced capacity. Looking at my cups, the ones that I have similar in shape/design to Large ladycup are:

Large Yuuki, the most similar in shape although slightly longer. Great capacity, exact rim to rim diameter (both cups with rims kissing). The Soft version has much larger holes than L Divacup.

Large Organicup, a little smaller than Large Ladycup, a bit softer. similar design, holes higher up. Larger holes than L Divacup.

You are looking for decent capacity cup and you were considering small cups. Have you considered the Large Sckoon? It is shorter with a great capacity. The holes are high up and are larger than L Diva.

Your best bet is to look for a cup similar to Large Ladycup but with more capacity. Spend some time on the size charts and then compare pictures to see which cups will fit what you are looking for. Hope this helps.

I was considering smaller diameter THINKING my cervix will not sit in the cup thereby giving me more capacity. And shorter for comfort & so not to squeeze it internally.
Yes the Ladycup was great except capacity was awful.
I really don't know WHY the Fleurcup leaks! It fits well but.....
Trust me, I've been looking at all the charts & pics I can find, even have a Scrapbook on my tablet.
So WIDER is generally better for capacity with a low cervix?

"So WIDER is generally better for capacity with a low cervix?"

Yes. The cup will sit higher if it can sit around, rather than under, the cervix. Yes, this means the cervix might take up some room in the cup, but it'll probably be a lot more comfortable if your cervix is too low for most other cups. When I switched from the small Si-Bell to the large (for capacity reasons) I found that the Large sits a little bit higher for me because it can actually get up and around my cervix, while the small sat under it. (No matter, though--the super-long stem lets me reach it either way)

OK Thanks!
When i got the NaturalMamma I also concideeed the LUVURBODY but decided to go with narrower due to my Fleurcup.
So wider & shorter should be what I need?
Suggestions please.....

Okay so I checked all the diameters on the ones you tried.

Diva 46mm
Lady cup 46mm
Green Donna 40mm
Fleurcup 46mm
Femmecycle 40mm
Naturalmamma 44mm

Miacup sm 43mm
Miacup LG 46mm <- probably better for you since you liked the lady cup diameter?

I think you may just have a preferred shape since the diameters on the fleur, diva, and lady cup are the same.
Since you've liked the ladycup, you'll most likely want to stay within the 45-46mm range or possibly even 47mm. To me it sounds like you have troubles with more narrow cups and you may just need to think about the shape of the cup you want :)
Im not familiar with lady cups so I can't really help there.

So what I recommend, find a cup with a diameter or 46mm or even 45-47mm with a shape you like, and a length similar to Ladycup. I'm not familiar with all the lengths as it's been awhile since I've looked thoroughly.

Hopefully this helped a little bit. I can go look some more later if you want a moe specific range.
