Menstrual Cups

Mami Cup – Review

mami1

This cup has a frosted silicone, in a more “peach skin” type feel.  The sides of the cup do have very obvious seams, and there are also raised lines up the opposite sides that aren’t seams (they are only half the height of the cup) – I’m not sure what those are for, maybe to give extra rigidity to the cup?  I can’t feel the seams on cups, so that isn’t something that affects me – but I know some people are sensitive to seams on cups, so this may be an issue for them.

Inside the cup, around the rim it has “made in Italy” and the Mami cup name, also the size marking.  There are also 2 measuring lines inside.

The airholes (4 of them) are punched through cleanly, and are horizontal with a slight diagonal.

I must admit, when I have seen pictures of this cup online, I didn’t think the looked like the stem would be comfortable, since it almost looked like a serrated knife 🙂

But the grip lines around the stem are pretty much like the other cups, just a little more pronounced and that gives even better grip.  The stem I found to be very comfortable, I couldn’t feel it, and I like this high grip stem a lot.

Even though this cup is actually quite large, a little larger than some of the other large size cups (and I normally find the smaller sizes fit better), I did find this cup opened up ok.  It would feel like it hadn’t opened up, since the bottom of the cup still felt a bit squishy.  But when I felt around the top of the cup to check, it did seem to be fully open and I didn’t have any leaks.  I didn’t get a small cup to try that size out.  But I was happy with the large size.

In the “Squish test” it measured 23mm.

This blue colour my cup came in has a good amount of colour to it (not too pale and a pretty shade of blue).  The “lilac” I’ve seen photos of sometimes looks a bit grey, that I don’t like the look of (like the photo above), and sometimes looks good.  So I assume this photo below is a more accurate picture of the colour?

All in all, I really liked this cup – I would have liked to try a small size to see how that felt and to see what the size comparison is, but I found the large size was fine for me (I just wasn’t sure if it had opened up fully or not).   I like that they come in purple 😀  I also quite like this tab stem as it has a lot of grip while still being nice and soft and flexible so I couldn’t feel it.

This cup would have to be up there with my favourite cups!

This cup was kindly donated to me by Coppetta Mestruale for review.  Thank you 🙂

  1. Gah, I secretly kind of hate this site because it introduces me to so many pretty and interesting looking cups that I then convince myself that I want. 35ml capacity? 75mm length with stem? I can haz? I don’t even like flat tab stems…

  2. So now that my Si-Bell’s stem busted, I bought this one and I’ve had a chance to try it (my period came super late this month)…so far the stem is not bothering me at all. I tried the Lena as well and while it’s lovely and well made, it’s simply too short and firm (suction + too short = too hard to remove). Granted, since I already own an iCare, I know that I need to insert the flat tab stem cups just so or else the narrow side of the tab will poke at my walls like none other. Could be that this cup is wider too (my iCare is a small)…but yes, so far, I like it very much! I think the Italian cups work best for me!
