I have a Skooncup that I love for it's softness. I have a very irritable bladder and having a really soft cup helps me. It was a pain in the butt to insert until I discovered the labial fold but now it's a breeze. However I have some gynae issues and my flow is very heavy, the Skooncups capacity is not as good as I'd like.

I need a cup with good capacity, that is as soft as it can be, long because I have a very high cervix and ideally as wide as possible too. What would you all recommend?

The softest cups with more capacity than the large sckoon that I'm aware of are the lg Gaia and lg Mami. The Luv Ur Body and Yuuki have great capacity, but might be too firm.

Duh--Si-Bell! :) :) :)

IIRC it's even softer than the Sckoon--it's extremely soft and on the wide side. I have a very high cervix too and very few cups are long enough--I actually wish the Si-Bell stem had a few more mm on it but it never goes out of reach really. It also has a bell shape so a dangly cervix or someone with a heavy flow will get more capacity out of it.

Is the capacity of the lg si-bell greater than the lg sckoon? I thought they were both 30 mil.

I really don't think the Sckoon has a 30ml capacity--it is a good bit smaller than all the other "large" cups (except maybe Meluna). So I'd be really surprised if it held 30. The Si-Bell is supposed to hold 30.

I did a water test between the large sckoon and the large miacup once. Due to hole placement and angle (almost at the top of the rim angled down), I think the sckoon does hold close to 30. (I didn't own a large si-bell at the time to compare to.)

Interesting. Never considered the Sckoon because with that pathetic non-stem it would get lost inside me every time. I believe the Si-Bell is supposed to hold 30 to the holes--not sure I get quite that much because my super-high pubic bone crushes the base a little bit (but my cup choices are limited due to cervix height and that very high pubic bone)
