La Luna site – directing to the Mahina site  &  the Mahina site with a (hopefully accidental) line saying the cup is worn in the womb

(also, it’s a small quibble, but a 10 year lifespan of a cup I wouldn’t consider a “lifetime of freedom” – I’d personally want to hope my lifetime is looooong past that :P)

  1. Hi Obsi 😀
    Here are the infos I got in a nice answer email :

    “* Size 1(small) – diameter 40mm; length70mm; length of the stem 25mm; volume25ml
    Size 2(large) – diameter 45mm; length 70mm; length of the stem20mm; volume 30ml
    * there are 2 holes under the rim to break the suction for easeful removal
    * the size 2 (large) is a bit more flexible
    * yes, the texture is peach skin like, though not so fuzzy.. perhaps more like a nectarine ;)”

  2. Interesting… Their website is where I got the measurements from
    http://www.lalunacup.com/sizing.html

    “Size 1. Diameter is 41mm by 47mm. The stem measures 25mm. The cup volume is 25ml.
    Size 2. Diameter is 46mm by 52mm. The stem measures 20mm. The cup volume is 30ml. ”

    Not that 1mm makes a huge amount of difference I suppose…

    I have e-mailed them to ask for a sample to review

  3. I’m looking to replace my DivaCup and, thanks to your very helpful chart, am considering this cup. They are going by Mahina now and have an interesting site. Reading their FAQ, they state that “If you are out camping and enjoy eco-sustainable practices, the most sterile way to clean your cup is to urinate on it and then it is ready for reinsertion.”

    Has anyone tried this? Or, can provide insight on this?
