Has anyone tried a large Si-Bell? The small sibell is my goldilocks, but I can't use it at night because it rides up way too far and I wake up with a huge leak and an empty cup. I have a very high cervix and I think a pretty narrow vagina. I currently use a small Lunette at night, which leaks sometimes. But the main problem is that the lunette is too firm for my sensitive bladder. So I'm wondering if I just need more capacity for at night?

Anyone tried the large si-bell? or have advice for a different cup I could try? I (think) I like longer cups as opposed to the rounder bell shape of the lunette.

I've looked at the ruby cup and it seems nice, but I don't know if the shape is for me.

Have you looked at the size and capacity charts yet?

Yes I have both a large and small si-bell and use both each cycle.

When I first tried cups I thought the small si-bell was my goldilocks too. And during the first day and last few days of my cycle it is, but for heavy flow days and overnight usage, I find the large one works better because it doesn't shift at all and holds more. I have a medium to high cervix (can barely touch the tip of it with my entire index finger in)

I still wear a light cloth pad/pantyliner for backup overnight though. Peace of mind is peace of repose. If you have the pad buys you some time to clear the bed should a breach happen.

I recently switched from the S to the L for capacity reasons, and it looks like we are the same shape (very high cervix, pretty narrow). So far it's worked well although this month (last week) I ended up having to change it twice in public places due to leakage--I can't figure out if I am just bleeding that much more, since I had a similar increase in flow several months ago that led me to purchase the Large, or if my reasonably toned PC muscles are just crushing it enough to kill some capacity, or if my cervix suddenly got dangly. My Rainbow has not had this problem, but it also has a firmer rim (slightly) and I haven't really tested it on the heaviest days. Since the design of the Rainbow lends itself less to being "crushed" by my PC muscles I think I will try it on my 2nd day next month and see how it holds up.

I have been using L si-bell for a while now, and its a great cup, i use it at the start and towards the end of my period. its just so soft and comfy.But during the heavy days i have started using luv ur body med. Its very narrow and long but large capacity, so there is no need to change it while Im out and about.
So if u have high cervix and narrow vagina, then i think luv ur body could work for u too. it is a lot firmer then si-bell. so it could be maybe uncomfortable. it def takes a bit to get used to. but its worth the effort.
hope this helps
