  1. Hi Obsi,

    i just wanted to come back on here (i was here about 2 months ago & on nappycino asking questions) & tell you that i LOVE my me luna cup. i havent had any snapping open issues yet, & to be honest i dont really feel like they are to hard or anything (i havent done a squish comparison with my diva or lunette though), the flexibility of them suits me fine & i actually find it easier to insert than either my lunette or diva, maybe due to the smaller size (i got the medium one). it doesnt hold as much ofcourse but that just means i have to change it every couple of hours on the first day of my cycle which is no big issue. i find it SOOOOOO comfortable, infact my only concern is that i might forget its in there! i find it much more comfy than either the lunette or diva, both of which feel like they slip to me for some reason & both of them also sit to low (i think my cervix must sit lower than normal???). so anyway, ive finally found the right cup for me! YAY!!!! thanks so much for all the wonderful info you have on this site, you were the reason i found a cup perfect for me – THANK YOU!!!!!

  4. I got this one. They now also got mini’s, which are even smaller than small.
    I got the mini one and it’s great for me as I got little flow and a short vagina. Although I probably could have fitted a larger one after all.

  5. Why would one choose a glittery luna cup?! For me it’s only adding unnecessary things while it’s such a relief that conscious products are being made these days. (Until the next doom news appears 🙂 )

  6. What I loved about this cup was the color and stem options! This was my second brand of cup that I used, and while I tried to use it, it was too hard for me. It would pop open on me, regardless of the fold, and when I did manage to get it inside me, it was uncomfortable. But I still like them regardless!

  7. Well…. I specifically chose a glittery cup 😀 and I’m sure a lot of others like that option – makes it a bit more fun.

  8. I just got a Meluna XL sport because I was trying to find the biggest cup. (At the time I hadn’t heard of the Luv Ur Body). I have the Large Yuuki and I read the Meluna XL is supposed to hold 42ml to the rim and the Yuuki holds slightly less, 37ml to the rim. Well I did the cup comparison and the Yuuki actually holds a little bit more. So Yuuki is still bigger than the Meluna XL in case anyone is looking for info on the cup with the most capacity.

  9. I don’t know if it’s already available outside Germany. But now there is a silicone cup in MeLuna design made in Germany. (It’s not made by MeLuna, but they helped the manufacturer of this new cup. It’s calles Silja.
