Hello! It has been forever since I have used livejournal, let alone visited this community, but I am a long-time user of menstrual cups. Wow, I guess it's been at least 7 or 8 years now... After a very involved journey and many many different cups, I have found the large fleurcup to be my goldilocks - I have been using them exclusively for 2 or 3 years now and I have been out of the loop and the community basically since discovering them. I have been wanting to purchase another one before mine begin to degrade, but when I went to their site, I only see a clear option available... I am not the most internet-savvy and their website confuses me a bit, so I thought I would ask my old reliable group of wonderful cuppers who would be much more knowledgable about the current cup trends than I - am I missing something, or do they no longer make colored cups?

P.S. I am also seeing that there is a HUGE increase in manufacturers, sizes, and shapes of cups since I began my journey! I am so glad to see that these wonderful devices are gaining ground and becoming a more popular choice for handling menstruation in the world. Warms my no-longer-period-hating little heart. :) Cup on, my friends, and spread the love!

Hey there,

I don't use the fleur myself, but I know that the British A Zen Cup actually IS the fleur sold under a different name. And the A Zen comes in different colours.

So if you want your old brand and not one of the new cups on the market you might want to have a look at those cups.

Hope that helps.

they're merely a reseller and the coloured fleurcups are available while supplies last. they aren't being produced anymore.

I've been watching their colors dwindle. Looks like they only offer clear now. :o( The Lena cup is nearly identical. Any color you want as long as it's pink. The Sckoons are shaped the same but 2mm shorter. Several color choices.

lena is much stiffer afaiu. i'd say the sckoon is more similar, or the new amycup for example. depending on the capacity needs a large meluna soft may also be a good choice.

General consensus over on the French MC forum (easycup) is that the company may have discontinued them because some users reported allergies seemingly corelated to the colours.
