Hello all,
Just wanted to share an experience with you.

I tried a Meluna soft, and a meluna sport, both for swimming/diving and sports. And guess what, the *softer* cup was better!

I feel like with the firmer cup, when I would move, or my pelvic muscles would tense, the cup would stay the same shape even though by bdy moved, and therefore allow air and water in, and it wouldn't create a seal. With the softer cup, it's as if it creates a strong suction, and no mater what position I move in to, because it moves with me, the edges of the cup stay flush with my vaginal walls, and therefore no water or air gets in, no blood gets out.

It's a total pain to pop open because it's so soft, I wouldn't want to deal with that on a daily basis, so i'll only ever wear it for diving. but it seems to work a treat :)
That being said, I better head over to mc_sales to pass on the Meluna Sport that was used for one dive only! HERE

Any body else found the softer cups were better for sports than the firmer sports cups?

Interesting to know, thanks! The most sport I have done is cycling, and that was also with a soft cup and I had no problems.

Yes, absolutely! I've owned both the small and large Lunettes, and the large SckoonCup. The large Lunette always leaks a small amount for me, the small Lunette (which is softer) only leaks if it's full, and the large SckoonCup basically never leaks, even when it's full. I've noticed this with activity as well as sitting around the house.

I have very strong pelvic floor muscles, so my theory has always been that when they squeeze the stiffer cup, the cup doesn't deform to the walls as easily, hence causing leakage. Also, getting the stiffer cup out is MUCH harder. To be fair, getting any cup out is very hard for me, but since softer seals better and comes out easier (when I want it to), it's a win-win for me.
