So I just received my order from Luxury Moon, a "limited" edition si-bell, and there's two things that I find intriguing: the first one that I noticed is that I did not get the necklace. What the heck? Does Luxury Moon not send those or..? I thought they already came with the cup no matter where you get it from. But whatever. Second, and most important, I'm holding my cup to the light and I noticed something strange, the cup seems to have those wave shaped stains that showed up on my Iriscup after a year of use, that you can only see when you hold it in front of some sort of light source. Is this normal???

Now that I think about it, I don't think my pink Si-Bell from them had the necklace either. I never noticed those lines though (on any of my cups) and mine seemed brand spanking new...

I E-mailed them about it and they didn't reassure me that it is normal so now I am even more concerned. I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt and washed it hard core thinking it might just be hard water stains or whatever those are called but it was to no avail.

They don't come with necklaces anymore. I think they stopped that about 6 months ago

That sucks :/ I was going to give it to my younger sister as bait to see if the cuteness would get her excited to try MCs ;)

No need for bait--the small Si-Bell is the closest to a Goldilocks-for-everyone that I can think of in the cup world. Unless she has Arnold Schwarzenegger's PC muscles and a 1/2 inch high cervix, or she absolutely hates the color pink, she'll probably enjoy the small (now, if you got a large, you might want to get her a Small unless she has super heavy periods). If her cervix is low she can cut the stem, and if her cervix is high, the stem will allow her to reach it without it getting lost inside her. Due to the design most people won't have trouble getting it to pop open, but it's so soft that she won't be completely unable to pee while wearing it (as I was when wearing classic Melunas)...I know some members frown upon recommending one cup for everyone, but I seriously DO recommend the Si-Bell for everyone! :)

Yup, I noticed! Lol that's alright, tho, because I understand your enthusiasm. I only got it a few days ago and I already love everything about it, if there was one thing I would change it would be for it to pop open easier. I don't think you need [body builder guy whose name I can't spell]'s muscles for it to be hard to pop open, since for me it was an odyssey, and I have had a kid! So I couldn't possibly imagine this sporty teenage girl who is basically a younger version of me, being able to use this cup.

I don't "pop" either of my Si-Bells (I got both large and small, using them for days with either heavier or lighter flow), I just stick my finder in and unfold whatever the fold I used to insert it. I find it quicker and more efficient, when doing all those twists, pulls, twirls, whatnot.

That's what I do as well, but even that is hard to do, I unfold one part and the other side collapses, it's never been this hard even with my softest cups. I guess the sibell is just not as poppy as other silicone cups, feels more like a soft meluna.
