I'm waiting for my cuplee to arrive and stumbled upon a youtube link comparing cuplee and blossom cup. Apparently, blossom cup is a softer cup than the cuplee! Anyone has a blossom cup would like to share their experience on the blossom cup?

The Blossom Cup is one of the many "generic" cups. See Obsidian's awesome pages about generics, knock-offs and no-names:
ONE: https://menstrualcups.wordpress.com/2015/01/15/similar-or-same-cups/
TWO: https://menstrualcups.wordpress.com/2015/01/15/cup-brands-with-no-details/
THREE: https://menstrualcups.wordpress.com/2014/07/23/un-named-and-cheap-menstrual-cup-brands-2/

And no, it's not FDA approved despite what their page says. If you don't believe me, go to the FDA site at: http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/devicesatfda/index.cfm and search for MENSTRUAL CUP. You will get a list of all of them. Blossom is not on it.

Wouldn't the company get sued for putting false information on their website? People might buy purchase those cups because they assume it's FDA approved, according to the website. I was also wondering where was the blossom cup made because I couldn't find the info on the website. But, it seems like it's a u.s. company.

"I'm not a lawyer, I don't play one on TV and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night" (old TV commercial) so I don't know what the legal ramifications are about their FDA claims. As best I can tell, each brand of cup must be FDA approved individually to be allowed to be sold in the US. US customers can import any cup they want for personal use but they are not allowed to sell non-approved cups on a retail level. IOW: It's OK to buy a cup, decide you don't want it and sell it on -- but you can't buy a case and sell them for profit.

Hi Kuradi8, thanks for the clarification! It's pretty helpful. I will be more careful in the future when I want to purchase another cup online. XD
