Hey, I need some advice regarding sports.

Today I own a Lunette 1 as my everyday cup and an Inciclo (rebrand of brazilian MissCup), which I like to use, but I found out that is too soft for me, I smashed the poor thing twice and leaked. Sigh.

So, I'm not exactly an addicted to sports but I have plans to go back to swimming classes. I also play beach voleyball casually with friends. For this purpose I bought a Meluna Sport M buuuut... the TPE didn't make my mind, so I'll pass it to a friend and return to the old and good silicone.

So I'm trying to find my perfect cup for sports. I saw a video review that recommends lots of cups including Lady Cup, Ruby Cup, Femmecup, Mooncup and specially the Yuuki. What do you guys can tell me about these cups? Which one do you use? Do you thing I should buy any of these for my case (swimming/voley/running) or stick with the Lunette?

That's like asking, "What size shoes are the best for sports?" Answer: the one that fits YOU best.

Use any of the size charts found at the Community FAQ or at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ to compare the dimensions of cups that you think you'd like to the ones that you have to figure out how much shorter/longer, narrower/wider you'd like your next "sports" cup to be. And then use photos to compare the shapes of those you think will fit. Flared rim or not? Blunt or pointy? Etc.

Don't buy a cup because it fits someone else. They're not going to wear it. Pick one that you think will fit YOU best.

No no, you got me wrong haha. I'm just gathering opinions, it's not like I'll think that what others use will be good to me, I know it doesn't work like that.

Also, my curiosity is about stiffness, to feel secure and comfortable, I guess. I don't have any problems with size.

Everyone is different, but I use the DivaCup and have never had a problem! Definitely check out the size chart and see what may work best :)

If you have a very high cervix (sounds like you might if the InCiclo fit you) someone is selling an Alicia, which is supposedly firm and is 90mm with stem: http://mc-sales.livejournal.com/240725.html
