I've been using a Diva Cup size 1 for quite some time. I have trimmed off the stem completely along with a tiny bit of the base (the cup is still intact). I really like the 'V' shape and the cup works for me most of the time. But, now I'm in search of a new cup.

The problem is that the Diva Cup is too long. On the first 2 days of my period, the cup just barely fits inside my vagina. When it starts to fill up, the cup starts to hang slightly out of my vagina. However, when my cervix rises at the end of my period, the cup fits okay and is comfortable to wear. My cervix fits very well in the cup and doesn't take up very much capacity, so I'm happy with that. It's also very easy to insert and remove. I have tried wearing the cup inside out, but it changes the shape so that it is flared at the rim and it's less comfortable.

I'm looking for another menstrual cup that's similar in shape and capacity to the Diva Cup, but is shorter. I've done some research and what looks closest is the Eva Cup. It's only 5mm shorter, which may work,but may not. Any suggestions or experiences are welcome. So, if you know of any other cups that are V-shaped like the Diva Cup, but shorter in length with similar proportions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks in advance.

Following. I'm having the same problem as you and would like other options also.

Some ideas: Cuplee, LUnette, Miacup, Naturcup, Angelcup, Bellacup...

This is a neat blog you can scroll through to see pics of different cups. http://en.afriska.ch/index.html Maybe you will find a similar shaped cup.

This is also a fairly thorough table for you to compare dimensions. It used to have pictures but now you'll have to click on the individual cups to see the shape. http://menstrualcup.co/compare-menstrual-cups/
http://menstrualcup.co/shop/categories/Menstrual-Cups/?lang=en

That site is a drop shipper so her prices usually reflect the lowest price out there, in my experience - comparable to other retailers and even the manufacturer sites.

HTH.

Fleurcup is shorter than Diva - I also wanted something similar, just shorter. I tried Ladycup and hated it because it was so stiff. I next tried Fleurcup and it was my unicorn.
