I'm trying to decide between buying a Sckoon cup and a Lena cup. I haven't seen much information on the Lena online, I'm wondering if it's new. It seems to be a similar shape, but perhaps a little wider, than the Sckoon. I am looking at the large in both brands. I have a Diva Cup now and it's too long, it hangs out and is uncomfortable. I am almost 30 and have vaginally birthed 2 babies.

I'm new here and this is my first post! I looked around and didn't see an answer to my question, so hopefully I'm not posting something that's already been discussed. Thanks!

LENA cups were recently launched in July. While there's still no LENA tag here, there have been a few mentions of it. Based on what I've read and watched on YouTube... Almost similar dimensions on the large LENA and Sckoon cups, with same capacity of 30mL.

It'll probably boil down to how soft/firm you want your cups. Sckoon is softer than your previous Diva, and LENA would be firmer than your Diva. It could also depend on if you need the stem for removal, and type of grip rings you prefer. Sckoon stems are generally not considered very functional due to its stretchiness.

Thank you! I didn't know about the firmness/softness and the stem so that can help me make a decision.

The large Sckoon is 45x50 and the large Lena is 45x51.7 so yes, they are similar in size. And looking at photos, similar in shape as well.

Until you decide, flip your Diva inside out to shorten it.

Good idea about flipping it inside out!

Part of the issue could be, as well, that your pelvic floor muscles probably took a beating from having babies (even if you hadn't, well, age doesn't help things, so I'd say that to anyone). Kuradi8 has a great list of exercises to do in order to tone them up. Weak PC muscles are usually to blame for cups feeling like they're going to fall out, although length could certainly be an issue too.

I have a lena size small. It is short enough for me ( just a tad longer than two knuckles on my middle finger) but it is much firmer than I would have expected and the stem has very prominent ridges that bother me. It does open easily, and vid had no leans even though it's the small and I've had a vaginal birth. I don't know which you should choose but thought I should share what I know about the lena.
