I've been thinking about trying an Organicup, hoping it could be just right, but I'm having trouble finding side by side comparison photos with cups I have or even people talking about how it compares to other cups.
I currently only have a Sckoon cup and Lunette, both small, as my Si-bell is on 'loan' to my sis, and my old Diva cup died after 7 years.
Does anyone have or use an Organicup who could offer more insight to it's characteristics, or would even be willing to snap and post some line ups?
Thanks so much.

I have a small Organicup. I only used it one cycle and it just wasn't the right cup for me but hopefully I can be of some use. It's a nice soft cup with a slightly firmer rim. I had some difficulty inserting it, partly because the base is so soft that when I tried to push it up, the base just caved in instead. However, I was always able to successfully insert it - it just took a bit of work. I should tell you here that I'm fairly new to cups so it may not be as hard for you as it was for me. It was completely comfortable for me while in and removal was very comfortable as well. The problem for me was that it leaked with moderate exercise. I think that was due to the softness but it may be that the shape is just not good for me.

The Si-bell is the only cup you've tried that I have. They're about the same firmness. I think maybe the Organicup is a tad firmer at the rim than the Si-bell and a bit softer in the body. I think the Si-bell also has a slightly larger diameter than the Organicup but it's a very small difference.

I'd be happy to post photos but I don't know how. Can you direct me?

That would be great! You can upload pictures to your lj account 'scrapbook' from your computer and then insert them in your comment. Go to your account (at the top of the page when you are logged in) and in the pull down 'My Journal' list there is Scrapbook. Good luck!

Thanks for the pointers! I was able to post photos but I couldn't figure out how to post them here so there's a new thread entitled "Organicup Comparison Photos". I hope they're helpful. Let me know if there's anything else you'd like.
