I have a small mooncup and I'm considering getting a small lunette. I know that measured to the holes lunette has a higher capacity. But in use is the difference noticeable? I'm not sure how accurate 'to the holes' measurements are in determining when the cup will overflow. I'm sure it's fine to be used as a rough guide, but there are bound to be other things that decrease the capacity, such as the cup sitting at a slight tilt inside you, muscles squeezing the cup a little bit, fluid making the cup heavier etc.

So I'm just looking for experiences really. If you've used both do you notice a difference in how often you need to empty?

Or does anyone have any general opinions/experiences on how accurate 'to the holes' is in practice?

I have a large Mooncup and had a small Lunette. Yes, the capacity of the small Lunette was noticeably greater so you'll see an even greater difference because you have the small.

"To the holes" is a good general guide but isn't really accurate. Cups don't generally overflow from the holes. They overflow before they're full to the brim because a cervix dangles and takes up space. Sometimes it's long before the level would reach the holes (measured without a dangle) or sometimes a cup can get right up to the brim, pushing the cervix out of the way. It varies from person to person and day to day.
