I ordered my first DivaCup and it came about the middle of July. I just ordered another one (so that i have a spare) and it came in the mail yesterday. When I opened the package I noticed some differences between both cups so I took some pictures of them and  wanted to share them with you guys.

in all the pictures the new is on the left and the old on the right

new diva with plastic wrapper its pouch and old diva with its pouch

withouth the plastic wrapper.. just with their pouches

both pouches...

you can see how the cup should be and how the other one has gotten discolored. you can also see the difference in the holes. the new one's holes are bigger on the outside but get smaller as they go in. I suppose they did that so that it would be easier to clean.

inside both cups. the thing that says "divacup" is written differently. also, the measurements are switched. in the new one, the side that says "divacup" has the oz measurment on it. the old one has the mL measurment on the side it says divacup. you can see how the holes get smaller on the new one here too

yep. that's about it :)  
isn't it weird though how the two divas are different

I think you need to have this at the end, to sandwich the cut:
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<_/lj-cut>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

I think you need to have this at the end, to sandwich the cut:
<_/lj-cut> (but without the underscore)
If that doesn't work, then I'm not sure. =/

But! I also noticed most of those differences. Although the yarn on my old bag was green. =)

I actually don't like the bigger holes. I know a bunch of ladies here like to make the holes bigger, but I actually find it harder to clean. Oh well.

Fascinating comparison....and simone is right, to get your cut to work, you need to close the tag after your pix--using the markup [/lj-cut] but where the [] are replaced with <>. Good luck!

it worked :)

at least for me it did...

That is a really cool comparison. Thanks for posting this. I like that they made the holes bigger on the outside. That seems to be my biggest problem with my diva. Cleaning the holes. Normally I have to use a toothpick. :)

I use an old earring and that seems to work perfectly.

I used to use a toothpick, but someone on here suggested filling it up with water, covering the top with your palm (like the ball of your thumb) and then squeezing the cup so water has to come out of the little holes. It's been working like a charm for me.

Yeah, I read that and tried it- but for some reason it didn't work quite as good for me. *Shrugs*

You'll have to let us know if the bigger holes make a difference in the wearing!

it looks like some parts are smooth and not as edgy, i guess.

Yeah, I was thinking that must be more comfortable, how they smoothed it out.

I recently had to buy a new Divacup, and noticed the changed too! I was on the phone with my girlfriend ranting about it, and she was all "uh... yeah whatever."

I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it felt... squishier to me. More flexible?
sarah_826 on December 9th, 2007 02:58 pm (UTC)
yeah.. that's how it felt to me to

That's really interesting! I actually like the new DivaCup version better - the holes and how 'divacup' is written. However, I think I like the old pouch better (: Were the pins that come with it any different at all?

I heard that rubbing alcohol can get some of the discoloration out..
