Menstrual Cups

Ridges

In my reviews and talk of the cups, I mention the “ridge” of the cup (or lack of).  The “ridge” is what I call the section of the cup near the top rim.  Where the cup  “pokes out” more.

If you look at this photo below:

The Diva, Femmecup, Keeper, Miacup and Mooncup have what I consider a defined “ridge” – theirs pokes out more, and is more obvious.

Lunette and Yuuki have what I call a “less defined” or “smoother” ridge – theirs doesn’t poke out as much, and is flatter and less “bumpy”

Ladycup, MeLuna and Fleurcup have no ridge – those cups are smooth right up to where the rim goes thicker.

I find that the cups with more of a ridge are slightly less comfortable (though not “uncomfortable”) to remove and insert – due to that more “bumpy” ridge.  The smoother sides cups are by comparison more comfortable, as they don’t have that bumpy outside.

So that’s what I mean by “ridge”  🙂
