Received my new luv ur body and thought I'd share my initial thoughts.

Been using a large fleur which is a fantastic cup with good capacity as I have heavy periods. Not quite my goldilocks but pretty close.

I ordered the large size as I have a low cervix (between the first and second knuckle) and it is shorter than the medium.

I think a wider cup might suit me as water does get in when in the bath and I also leak when I exercise so I hope the extra width will help with that.

It feels similar in softness to the fleur but is bigger so probably not for first time users or those still getting to grips with smaller cups.

Here's some pictures next to my large fleur.

Update: started using it today. Pleased I can accommodate it and no leakage so far. Main thing is my cramps have disappeared as soon as I changed to this cup (I had my fleur in earlier). So far so good!

End of pictures

Awesome review and comparison pics! Would you say the LUB is more flexible than the Fleur?

I would say it's is about the same in terms of squishyness/flexibility but much harder to pop open from a punchdown fold but I managed a c fold fine.

I'm also thinking I'm not going to get as much capacity out of it as i hoped - I started leaking through the night last night and the cup was only filled to 7.5ml and I can at least half fill my large fleur so perhaps my cervix has dangled further into a larger cup and reduced capacity for me or it may have been placed awkwardly. I have flipped inside out today to see how that goes

I hope that works for u, also the triangle fold seems to get a good seal for me on lub, it suprised me lol

Thanks will give it a try. Got a surprise earlier on with the c fold - my cervix moved and was sitting outside the front on the cup (that never happens it normally only sneaks round the back if I can't get the cup under it). The seal feels much easier to break with the cup inside out. It was pretty strong right way out (had to dig my nails in).
