Cup Brands with no details

There are a few “branded” (named) cups available, but who don’t give enough information for me to give them a page of their own. Some of the links to them may no longer be available when they sell out of that listing.  But you can always do a search based on the name.

So until I get more information on them, I’m putting them all here on the same page.  Please note that some of these cups appear to be suspiciously similar to other cups available.  See Similar/Rebranded Cups.

.

“Unique” and “Original” Brands
These brands are either the first or the only cups to feature their particular style features.

  • Carrefour (Fairly Unique Design -Wide flat tab, but opaque)
  • Smartcup (Unique Design – Long solid thick stem – different flower/butterfly/leaf designs on the side)

carrefour smartcup

Carrefour | Smart Cup

.

Suspected “Rebranded” and “Copied” Brands
These brands appear to have taken significant design elements from “original” brands (eg it would be difficult to tell them apart by looking at them), and/or have multiple other brands all sharing what appears to be the same design (eg they appear to be the same design given different brand names).

Similar or Rebranded Cups

This is a list of cup brands that have the same specific features and appear to be almost identical (it would be difficult to tell them apart if they were side by side). Because there are so many of these new cups available now, I have stopped listing these cups on separate pages and are listing them all here instead.

This is not an accusation that any of these brands are “Copies” or “Rebrandings” – it is merely a comparison to highlight cups which appear to be the same shape and/or design – for research purposes.  I would however like to make consumers aware of the possibility that many of these brands could be a “rebranding” – where cups can be purchased for as little as 45c each, and then resold as the new brand name for anything up to $20-$30.  Click here to see my article on “rebranding”

(If you want a listing of all the known cup brands by stem type – look at the MASTER LIST here)

Measurements (Small/Large) for the brands are also given when known, for easier comparison.  The slight (eg 1mm) difference between some brands that otherwise seem identical may be due to measuring errors or rounding up/down (eg a 41.5mm measurement may be rounded up or down by the brand/manufacturer), or may show the cup is actually a different size to another – I don’t know.

Valve Stem Cups – Bassrose style

The “Bassrose” design valve stem cups have a hollow stem that opens at the end, allowing the cup to be emptied while still in the vagina.  They use a ball inside to block the opening.  I refer to any other cups that have this same shape as a bassrose rebranding.

  • Stella – [Listings] [Bassrose rebranding]

Valve Stem Cups – Aiwo style

The “Aiwo” design has a hollow tube stem with a slit inside that opens when you squeeze the stem, allowing it to be emptied while still in the vagina.

Un-named Menstrual Cup brands

There are HEAPS (seriously HEAPS!) of cheap cups available on AliExpress, ebay, Amazon and other such sites.

Most of them are listings for what appears to be the same cups. Most of them don’t have a brand name, so I can’t list them individually on my site, since I don’t have a name to reference them with…. and a lot of them don’t list the measurements either (not very helpful)….. So I am putting all the cups styles with no name in this post.

Links to these cups may disappear (particularly if they are amazon/aliexpress/ebay listings), but I’ll do my best to show what is available, and provide links to search those main sites for cups, so you can search for them yourself.

I’ve split my thoughts on cheap cups (safety and ethical concerns) to a separate post, so I could use this post to showcase the actual cups. See “Cheap Cups part 2” post for my 2c worth on the safety and ethical concerns with cheap cups.

If you’re wanting to find these cheap cups, try searching for “menstrual cup” in your cheap website of choice.  Such as:

 

 Unbranded Cup Examples

There are *MANY* more than this, but this gives you an idea of what styles are available.

.

Moon/Heart stemmed cups:
cheapcup_07 cheapcup_01  cheapcup_01b cheapcup_13

Unnamed #1Unnamed#2 | Unnamed #3
(Very cute!  Though sadly they aren’t practical as the heart/moon tends to irritate. So people often have to trim them off)

.

Tab stem cups:

 cheapcup_03 cheapcup_05 cheapcup_10 unnamed_01

Unnamed #1 | Unnamed #2 | Unnamed #3 | Unnamed #4

These are often the “Aneer” or “iCare” brand of cups, being sold with generic boxes (or no boxes) and no name.  Aneer/iCare tend to be the very shiny looking cups.  The opaque #4 cups are listed with measurements of  Small: 41/36/72 large: 46/38/74  (Could be Diameter/length of stem/length with stem?)

.

Other Shape/Design cups:

cheapcup_06 cheapcup_04

Unnamed | Unnamed

The first pic is the “Eva” style cup with a short thick stem and gridlike pattern on the base, the second has a wide-flat tab stem and is commonly sold in a “menstrual cup” box and with either a hot pink pouch (like the first pic), or the gold satin pouch.

.

Heart embossed cup

cheapcup_16 cheapcup_heart

Unnamed cup on Aliexpress by “Zhida Xintai” also on Amazon by “Anderson Global Trading”.   This one looks similar in design to the Yuuki cup (perhaps a narrower stem), and has a heart design on the side of the cup.  It also sometimes lists it as being made from Food-grade silicone not medical grade.  Measurements given are S=43mm diameter, 70mm length, 25ml capacity.
M=47mm diameter, 75mm length, 30mls capacity.

.

Collapsing/Folding menstrual Cup

collapse_cup_1

Basically the same idea (slightly different shape) to the Lily Compact.  Found on AliExpress.

.

Ring Pull Stem Cup

ringstemcup

Found on AliExpress – The listing says it’s food grade silicone

Small:  43mm diameter, 85mm length, 25mm stem.  Capacity:  15ml (airholes), 20mls to rim.

Large: 46mm diameter, 87mm length, 20mm stem.  Capacity:  15ml (airholes), 25mls to rim.

“Discharge” cup (assume valve-stem?)

unnamed_02

This cup design is weirdly interesting, although I don’t have a name for it, it deserved it’s own post here.  Find the cup for sale here.
