I just received my order from Feminine Wear (it was fast! From UK to USA it was a total of 8 days).

Anyways, I have had the Lunette (both small and large models) and the Sckoon (small and large models).
But I still had issues.

I decided I needed bigger cups and perhaps to try different softness. So I ordered

Yuuki,Soft (small and large)
Meluna,classic - Large
Fleurcup - Large

I should have trusted the community chart on Cup Capacities here http://sizecharts.livejournal.com

They were more true to the actual capacities.
I used a cap from the cough drop medicine to 30mL and The large Yuuki, Fleurcup filled up to the holes. I can go a bit further, but not much. (My large Lunette and Sckoon are also 30mL)

The Large Meluna said 34ml, but 30mL was basically to the brim, I don't see it being 34mL, maybe 32mL.

So, I feel a bit cheated by what the companies list as their capacities. I should have trusted the chart you gals have.

I have leaking issues with the Large Lunette even though it doesn't fill up. The Large Sckoon did better, but the last times I used it, I could not reinsert it (I had to insert laying on my bed). It was just too friggin squishy and I could not get it back in at work.

Also I was filling up the Sckoon in less than 6 hours I think, that's why I was hoping to get a higher capacity cup.

But, anyways, I'm still hopeful! I really like the Large soft Yuuki and I hope I can make a comparison post months later (you know, cause I need to wait for my period, lol).

Ooo, can I request pictures? Especially of the soft Yuukis. I've been pondering on replacing my old Yuuki (cracks in the holes), but I'm not sure about the redesign/re-release.

The large Sckoon opens much better if you run it under cold water before inserting and make sure one of the holes is centered in the fold. It can be almost impossible otherwise!

If you figure how often a tampon or pad would have to be changed, is six hours with the Sckoon not an improvement? Depending on rate of flow and cervix position, the average person does not generally get 12 hours before emptying. (I really wish cup companies would stop marketing that!) On my heaviest day, no matter which cup I use, I can go only about 3 hours without emptying.

Good luck with your new cups and look forward to your comparison post!
