I am really confused which one will be my next cup to try? I tried Diva, Lunette small. Diva is too firm, lunette is good but small for me. Kind of tip is hanging down so want to try round shaped cup after so many reviews I planning to try Si Bell or Sckoon both large. I guess sckoon quality is not good and customer care, price too high.Si Bell is good but I am in doubt. So any input cup users.

When you say the "tip" of the small Lunette is hanging down, do you mean the *stem*, or the *cup bottom*? I ask because you can cut the stem, so you may want to try that.

If you already cut the stem and the cup bottom is low, you may have a low cervix. So take that into account when you choose the length of your new large-capacity cup.

I removed the stem
But both diva and lunette the base the grip ring part is sitting low causing discomfort. Want something squishy and round bottom not v type

Re: I removed the stem
What could also be happening is that your pelvic floor muscles are not holding up the cup as well because you have given birth. I totally destroyed my mom's pelvic floor and I was a small baby...and the only baby. Kuradi8 has a bunch of pelvic floor exercises she can recommend!

will soft cup work ?
I dont know. But I am trying kegel too. My cup does not leak it function perfectly. Base of the cup sits low while walking I can feel. Its not comfortabl because of the rim, will a soft squishy cup work for me?

Re: will soft cup work ?
If the cup is sitting low when you're walking it definitely sounds like it's your pelvic floor. The Kegels/Ben Wa Balls etc will continue to help. Just like any other muscle it will take time for the pelvic floor to get back into shape :)

Sckoon is good quality
I quite like my Sckoon small! I use it for light days. Very comfortable and creates an excellent seal. I would try the large as well but shipping to my country is very expensive. My only problem with the small is capacity, so I use a large Fleur for my heavy days.

Fleur is nearly identical to Si Bell in dimensions and capacity, and definitely cheaper. I'm very happy with Fleur in terms of capacity and comfort. The Si Bell is suppesedly softer and smoother (no grip rings), so if those two aspects factor into comfort for you, go with the Si Bell. If you're looking for a round body and something softer than Diva or Lunette, the Fleur might be a great and less expensive option.

Re: Sckoon is good quality
I don't like grip rings it's bothering me too much. I need soft one. Inside out diva is kind of ok for me . But I looking more comfortable soft one

Re: Sckoon is good quality
For sure! The Fleur grip rings are so so great for removal, but the flipside is that some folks are sensitive to them and find them uncomfortable. I've heard of people filing them off though and getting good results. I find it the perfect balance of soft, but it's springy, so opening it is not a problem.

Anyway, for reference, Sckoon also has ridges, but they are very soft and not nearly as prominent as Fleur. Sckoon is a very squishy cup and definitely very soft for insertion and removal. The Sckoon seems a bit smaller/shorter than the Fleur and Si Bell but has the same capacity, so if height is a big concern, I'd go with the Sckoon.

Re: Sckoon is good quality
If the grip ridges on either the Fleur or the Sckoon bother you, you can either cut them down with nail clippers, file them off or wear the cup inside out. This will not change the shape or capacity on these cups.

The Fleur has a thinner rim than the Sckoon which makes the rim feel softer, but they're both soft cups.
