I tried the Lily, it was way too long and with my retroverted uterus the shape was a bit awkward. But I fell in love with the silicone (so smooth and soft and pretty), and now my MeLuna's TPE feels like a disappointment lol

What cups have a silicone with a feel that's similar to the Lily Cup?

The Lily has that peachskin finish, which a lot of the silicone ones do. If you're looking for something long with that level of softness try the Si-Bell--feels quite similar to me (I used both in tandem for awhile)

Yeah, I've been thinking of getting the Si-bell, just figuring out how to get one from here. My small soft MeLuna is just slightly too short for me, but the Lily is waaaay too long. Plus I want something bell-shaped.

People on Reddit have also been telling me about the Si-bell, maybe I should really get it. Is the feel of the silicone really comparable to the Lily? The Lily's silicone is absolutely glorious, I'm so sad that it's too long for me.

I wouldn't say identical but comparable definitely. And the level of softness is the same, which is perhaps more important for comfortable wearing. (The Fleur is shaped like the Si-Bell but has that flat tab stem I find so irritating and is firmer)

Thanks for the info! Once my friend buys the Lily off me, I'll look into getting a Si-bell. :)

How about a lily compact? I think it's made of the same material, but smaller. I have one and it's definitely peachy soft silicone. I don't have the regular lily though so I can't be sure if it's really similar. The collapsible structure makes it different, but it might work for you. Also, did you try to cut the stem off your lily? If you really like it and just the length was a problem that might help.

I'm also considering the Lily Compact, tho the diameter is a little wider and I'm still a bit paranoid because I had vaginismus for a time.

I considered cutting the stem off, but my friend with a pretty high cervix wants a Lily Cup, and I'm thinking of selling it to her to get money to buy a different cup that will fit me better. :)

I have both Lily Cups and I don't feel like there's a big difference in diameter really. For me the Compact is also soft/flexible enough in the body and the rim that I have no issue with the rim. I LOVE the silicone too, I just haven't been satisfied with any of the silicone of other cups I've used.
