  1. Wow, such nice charts, really! ;D

    And about the information you write : “So Green Donna, Alicia and MPower are not included in these charts (as it’s likely Green Donna and Mpower will be redesigned anyway)”
    Oh so it has been said/heard that the Green Donna will redesign their cup ?^

  2. Simply being curious, no big deal^.. about the original (old) Yuuki, do you know if the Large size had a solid stick stem too, just as on the small Yuuki you’ve got ?

    (Or was it already a hollow stem – it could be, since the cup was longer, so more easy to reach, so a hollow stem may be sufficient +a (short) hollow stem is more comfortable on a big-long cup…)

    Also, for the Large Naturcup i have (size II) = for the body squishyness, i would say it’s even more flexible and thinner than the new Femmecup’s body.
    So, maybe Natur II is at 1.5 or 1.75 lol, for the body.
    I would have to feel, squeeze it again for its rim’s squishyness hm… (from my memory, right now, maybe 3?….)

  4. I don’t know for sure it will be redesigned, but I would presume that given it was accused of being too similar to Lunette, and they appear to have withdrawn them from sale (their websites aren’t working)… I would think that they either just completely closed down never to reopen (which doesn’t seem likely given the massive expense it must be to set up a cup company), or they will come back again with a cup that’s different enough that it’s not a copy.

    I’m really not sure about Yuuki. I assumed they all had a solid stem, but then people started saying they had a hollow stem and weren’t as squishy any more, and it did seem that one size was being sold with solid, the other hollow… but now it seems they are all hollow.

    The photo here is unclear – as the small stem does look rounded on the top, compared to the large (so it could mean the large was hollow) – http://www.yuuki.cz/resize/domain/yuuki/files/img_0149-E28093-kopie.jpg?w=400&h=300

  5. Thank you^.. okay, now i feel silly… There are so many cups now that things are getting confusing :s ha! ;) Because, i just remembered the first Yuukis i got may be from the original models = a large one and a small one, which were soft cups, the L one specifically.
    And! yeap, actually, the L had a squishy hollow stem (comparable to the Lady’s, except there are grip ridges on the Yuuki’s),
    and the small did have a solid stem, with a smoother texture by the way (a detail lol.)
    –> But i can’t be sure that these were from the very first generation. Still, i tend to think the Large cup always had a hollow stem, probably, but but? ;D

    Later, i got another small cup, that had a hollow stem, (with a tiny bit more rounded ending shape than the stem of the large cup.) The cup itself may have *subtle* differences (a very slightly whiter silicone notably) but no any obvious change as for the softness.

    Lately, i ordered one of the new Large cup, but haven’t seen it yet = it should be obviously stiffer, of a whiter-smoother silicone, and seems to have a less great capacity than it used to.

  7. I have a question about the “squishyness” chart. You have it rated as being 1-10 but do not say if 1 is the squishiest or if 10 – it makes it a bit confusing to tell which are squishy and which are firm. Thanks :)

  8. i’m a newish cup user, and having some comfort issues with the melunas that i have. i’d like to second the comment above re squishiness, as it may solve the issues i’m having :)
    Thanks!
