Hiiii, I'm new, 16 years old, and I've been looking at cups since I was 12! Unfortunately my mom doesn't like them and I know my older sister well enough to know she's to squeamish to want to know about them, so i'm more or less left to fend for myself in this category. Basically, I already have a Femmecup, but I tried using it once and it popped open when it was halfway in (that was a HORRIBLE experience that made me too paranoid to try cups again for about 2 or so years.) I've since decided that the Femmecup probably wouldn't be for me anyway, and I might sell it or trade it on mc sales someday soon because I'm not using it. Basically, I've been looking for a cup that's kinda long and firm, but not too firm, and I really liked the Lunette, the Diva, and the Yuuki. I bought a Diva and won a Lunette, and I'm going to try them both soon, probably on my next period, now that I'm getting sick of pads again and I'm easing out of my paranoia from the Femmecup incident. (Not to mention I'm taking regents on the days I expect TOM to visit, and I don't want to be distracted in the slightest by the gross, stinging feeling of a pad.)

I also want to get try a Yuuki though. I heard they're among the firmer cups, which is something that appealed to me because I run track at school, and it'd be easier for them to stay open. At the same time, I'm worried it might be too firm? That's why I was looking at the soft Yuuki. Does anyone have some experience with both the Yuuki Soft and the Yuuki Classic? I know it sounds ridiculous, buying 3 cups before trying them, but tbh I just want to get cup spending out of the way because I'm saving up for a ton of other expensive stuff.

Thanks for reading, and sorry for all that exposition >_

I think you should get used to your current cups before you buy any more...especially since you're new to cups in general. If you want things to go smoothly, it's better to practice than to hope the next cup will fit you better. The Diva and Lunette are of medium firmess. Chances are, at least one of them will work for you!

I agree. Learn to work the cups that you already have, especially because they are significantly different lengths. They will each probably fit you at different times of your cycle.

The Diva has notoriously small anti-suction holes. Enlarge them if you have trouble getting it to open fully. Skim/Read http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ for other helpful hints.

Finally, the Yuuki is very similar in size to the Lunette that you already have so stick with what you've got.
