8 years ago when I embarked on my menstrual cup journey I started with a Diva Cup (me, and everyone else up until the last 5 years or so!) and I fell in love with the entire concept of cups. The Diva worked well for me but I could tell it was a little too long (also the story for so many cup users who begin with the Diva Cup) so I looked at another brand — Lunette. There was no such thing as our Menstrual Cup Comparison Chart but I was trying it based on other people online saying they loved the Lunette. I was stabbing blindly in the dark, just trying another cup without exactly knowing why. Luck was on my side because the Lunette was shorter with the stem trimmed than my Diva and I experienced true period nirvana for the first time shortly after. No leaks, no slippage, and no discomfort.

The Lunette Cup works 98% of the time, and when it isn’t working I can figure out why and switch to a cup that will work (I also use a softer cup in certain scenarios) so for this reason I would call Lunette one of my Goldilocks cups… it is just right for me. Having said that, my endorsement isn’t meant to say that the Lunette will be your Goldilocks. Our biggest belief at PACII HQ is that there is no one cup that works for every person. That is because, like snowflakes, vaginas are all unique. What works for me, or for Amanda, isn’t guaranteed to work for others. I will say that Lunette is one of the cups that is likely to work for many users simply because it’s an average length and in the average firmness range.
