I've been using a L-Sckoon and really like it for the most part. It's the right firmness for me and I really love the shape. My only complaint is I'd like a higher capacity. I've looked over the size charts and know there are quite a few options that hold more, but I'm stuck on which one to try because I'm iffy about the designs. I have a Lunette that I can use but is slightly uncomfortable because of the way the prominent rim kinda catches during removal and the nub of the cut off stem is a little pokey. Of the higher capacity cups are there any you'd recommend that are soft-ish with a smooth rim and easy to remove stem?

My first thought was the Si-Bell--has a shape a bit like the Sckoon, blunt-bottomed, and the stem is very thin and easy to remove. The Fleur is good if you want something firmer but I've heard that people have a harder time smoothing down the "nub" from the stem and that one also has grip rings on the base.

Si-bell was my first thought, too. However, the large Mami is more comfortable to me than the large Si-bell was, I think due to the straighter sides and lack of flared rim, and is about the same in softness.

This is a large sckoon and large si-bell side-by-side: sckoon si-bell

In this photo, the lg sckoon is fourth from the left and the lg mami is fourth from the right. The small si-bell is third from the right.

I'll have to check out the Mami cup. The Si-Bell looks close enough in size (and shape) to the Sckoon I don't know if it'd make a difference, but the Mami looks that smidge bigger that might buy me the extra hour I need to not ever have to change out at work. Thanks for the pics.

My vote goes to the large Fleur, it is not as stiff as the small and is a no-fail opener.
