Review – Luv Ur Body
When I got the package I was very surprised by how thin the box was! But I suppose it is far more eco-friendly to minimize packaging where possible, and possibly cheaper to post too.
Inside the box the 3 sizes of cups were in separate bag packaging
To keep the packages flatter, the cups have plastic tags (the ones that attach price tags to clothing) through the airholes, to hold the cup folded. Which is quite clever! It does mean the cups are a bit more oval than round when you first open them, but they seem to bounce back to fully round if you squish them the other way.
The cups are fairly large. The small one is only a little smaller than a large cup in other brands, and the large cup is very large. Here’s a comparison with the Large Lunette and Large MeLuna
The cups have a frosted look to the silicone, with raised flower designs all over the outside of the cup. Medium level squishyness – to me they feel quite good. The stems are little leaves which are cute, and they are very flexible. They seem to be designed so that you can cut the leaf part off, leaving a small ball if you wanted to. The base of the cup has small flower designs for extra grip.
The small cups have the option for the flower designs to be coloured. I’m not sure what they use for this, or how they do it, but those coloured raised sections feel the same as the rest of the cup, and scratching it with my nail doesn’t affect it at all.
Using the Cup
I tried the large size first, but I found it way too large for me. I couldn’t get it anywhere near opening up. So then I tried the medium. I was able to get it open, but the longer length of the cup meant that it felt annoying, as the base of the cup it was almost at the entrance of my vagina, with the stem poking out. The small cup however, I found to be the right size for me. With the small size I wasn’t able to feel the cup while being worn at all – I couldn’t feel the stem.
I had no leaking with the small or medium sizes.
Cleaning was easy, the airholes are big enough that they don’t stay clogged, and the raised design on the outside didn’t seem to make cleaning any more difficult.
I didn’t like the large or medium sizes, I felt they were much to big for me, and I wonder if there are many women who would find those sizes better than the more standard sizes for cups (though I suppose it is good to have options for longer and wider cups). But I did like the small size. I think the flower designs on it are very pretty, though I do wonder what they are made from and the safety aspect of that. I like the leaf stems, they are comfortable but also give a good grip.
