Hello all,

I need help looking for a soft cup. I've narrowed it down to Meluna soft (medium), Bella cup, Si-bell and Lily cup (all small). Can you help me rank the softness or at least tell me the cup that is much softer than a small Lunette or compares to a Sckoon?

I have a dangly cervix on two days of the my five-six day period. On these days I cannot insert my Lunette because it's too firm. My small Sckoon cup can be inserted but my I'm looking for a better cup as the Sckoon does not always want to work for me.

Capacity isn't a huge factor as in the cup just needs to hold a minimum of 20mL (not a the rim). I own a large Si-bell but the diameter, 46mm, does not suit me one bit as the cup placed pressure on my rectum and made emptying problematic. I don't use it anymore.

I'm really interested in the Bella cup but I want to know how soft it is.
How would you compare the softness of a classic Meluna? I've seen Bree from Precious Stars Pads compare the Classic Meluna to a Lunette but I could not tell the difference.

Thank you.

Long time lurker :)

While softness is a factor, the bigger factor would be the cup's actual dimensions. Start over by comparing the ones you have to the ones you're interested in using the size charts found at the Community FAQ and at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ to pick out ones that you think will fit you. The ones you have chosen are all over the map. Then look into the softness of those that you think will fit you best.

Analogy: Find the Size XYZ rack of dresses at the store instead of buying ones of random sizes just because you like the fabric.

I already compared and narrowed down my options. With the exception of the Meluna and Lily cup all the other cups are similar in dimensions. Although, I'm looking for a cup that would be good on my heavy days I wouldn't mind a cup that would work through the length of my period. A cup like that would need to be relatively similar to the Lunette in measurements (41mm X 72+mm) just softer.

I'm willing to continue with my two cup system, swapping out the Sckoon for a soft medium Meluna for heavy days.

What I want to know is how the softness of the cups compares to the ones I already have.

I think the small Si-Bell will give you the best of both worlds--softness (it's equal to the Lily and much softer than the Lunette, from what I hear...don't know about the Sckoon but I think it's thinner than the Sckoon) and a blunt base to give you decent capacity even when your cervix dangles. With the Lily there's the possibility that your dangly cervix will get "caught" inside the inner rim and cause cramping, as it did for me.
