After many years of discontinuing my cup use (due to my BC option), I've decided to give it a go yet again. I'm trying to find a new cup that would work out well for me as there are a lot more options then there were before (which is kind of daunting) so I'm hoping I can get a bit of help here.

Years ago, I had the Diva size 1 which was okay but it was a bit too long. I loved the firmness but the length would sometimes hurt. I lost that one in a move though. A few years ago, just for my BC switch, I got a FemmeCup which I never got to use so I'm currently using it now and while it feels fine, it's capacity is problematic and due to it's softness, I have a hard time breaking the seal. A few days ago, I figured I'd get the Diva Size 2 and that turned out to be a big mistake because I can't even move without feeling it.

So I've narrowed it down to the Small Lunette, Small UK Mooncup, and Small Yuuki. I was was hoping that I could get some guidance (because I can't afford to get this wrong again). I've been checking the various comparisons, but I'm still not sure which of the three to go with because I think the UK Mooncup or Yuuki might too stiff for me and my uterus is already hyper sensitive. The other thing is that I did just turn 30 (which is why I opted for the Diva 2 instead of just replacing the first one), but based on all the dimensions, it does seem as though should stick with the smaller sizes but I'm worried about changes down the road. Any thoughts or guidance would be super helpful. Thanks!

Before you buy another cup, try flipping the Diva inside out to shorten it. The Diva also has notoriously small anti-suction holes so if popping open and breaking the seal give you trouble, enlarging the holes should take care of it. It's perfectly OK to wear it inside out if it fits you better that way.

The difference in length between the Diva and some of the others is pretty big. There are several sets of size charts over at the Community FAQ and another set at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/

Thanks for the recommendation! Another issue with the Diva 2 was the diameter so I'll try to compare it to the FemmeCu's diameter. Unfortunately I think that flipping it inside out may only help with one of the issues though. :( I'll definitely run some comparisons before making another purchase.

At the rim, the large Diva is only 1mm wider than the Femmecup so that shouldn't make any difference at all.
