I've been interested in possibly getting the Sckoon cup, but the sizing concerns me a little. My inclination is to go for cups that are smaller in diameter because I don't really need the capacity and I'm not really comfortable with the idea of inserting something large. I've never had penetrative sex. However, I have a pretty high cervix.

Right now, I use the size 1 Diva Cup, and the length is pretty good. The size 2 Sckoon looks like it's only a little shorter than the Diva, but the size 1 looks a lot shorter. I feel like with the size 1 Sckoon, I'd be at risk of having a hard time retrieving it. But I don't know if the size 2 would be a little big for me. Thoughts? Or should I just steer clear of the Sckoon?

I'd personally steer clear of the Sckoon if you need the stem for removal. The stem is super stretchy and not super grippy and gripping the bottom of the stem will only end in frustration as it stretches so tiny that you lose your grip on it.

If you don't need the stem, or only need a little bit of stem, you'll probably be ok. But going from a Diva to a small Sckoon is a pretty big jump and you'll likely have to adjust your technique.

Hmm. That is a concern, then. I'm mainly looking for softer cups, and now that it's in my budget more, I'm starting to shop around. I've been thinking about the Si-Bell, too, but I'm concerned about that stem since I've read/seen that it's very stretchy and can break.

I probably will need the stem. I have to use my Diva's stem, and I expect I would need to use the stem even more with a shorter cup.

The Claricup is like the Si-bell but a tiny bit stiffer and opaque. It might be less prone to breaking. I've never had a problem with my Si-bell, but l've cut half the stem off, which may be a factor. The Cuplee is also very soft, and lots others that slip my mind right now.

Oh, interesting! I don't know if I'd seen the Claricup before.
