I am wondering why some menstrual cup companies don't sell cups in different sizes for different cervix lengths. Granted, some companies do, but it baffles me why others don't. Isn't the purpose of the different brands of cups to offer other cup dimensions (and, in the case of the LilyCup Compact and Femmycycle, features)? By pandering to the "one size fits all" mindset, a company will be missing out on potential profit if customers decide to get another company's cup because that cup actually fits their cervix. I've never understood why companies offer multiple sizes with different diameters, but not multiple sizes with different lengths. Can anyone explain this?

Fascinating analysis, thank you! And good point about how most cups are pretty close to one-size-fits-most. I have multiple cups, and while some work a little better than others (slightly more comfortable, less prone to leaking), I could definitely have stopped with the first cup I bought. This board might well give the impression that it's hard to find the right cup, but I think most people who are reasonably happy with their cup never find their way to this board at all.

I'm glad it was helpful :)

Maybe, but I am definitely not that one-cup-fits-most person, since I have the World Trade Cervix!

And yet we have a couple of cups in common -- Rainbow and Diva, which work fine for both an average height cervix and a World Trade one. :-)

In the past couple days I've had real difficulty reaching both my Rainbow and Si-Bell though! I really wish the Rainbow had another half centimeter on the stem! (I don't actually own a Diva--too firm and short--I have the iCare, which has about 10-15cm more stem on it and is a lot softer)
