Cup Size Comparison Charts

Sqishyness Rating

The “Squishyness” is how soft or hard a cup is – This tells you how easily it is able to be folded into the shape for insertion.  Rating is from 1-11, where 1 is very squishy and 11 is not very squishy.  This is ratings for the cups I have, listed in order of sqishyness to hardness.

Every time I go to re-rate these, it seems I give them different ratings.  So I don’t know if temperature and age affects the way the cups feel, or if I’m not rating them well…. I don’t know.  It’s also very hard to try and compare some cups, as there’s not much difference in some of them, so I’ve given half measures too.

I’ve also arranged the lists by different attributes.  Where I didn’t have enough data to properly rank a brand, I’ve put them at the bottom of the list.
