We’ve been sitting on a pretty big secret here at Put A Cup In It, and we’re finally ready to share it with all of you! But, before we spill it, we would like to share a little of the backstory.
How This Came to Be
As you know, our menstrual cup quiz is one of our favorite resources. We’ve but a lot of time and care into crafting it based on user feedback and our own experiences. While we don’t track personal, individual responses we are able to see basic stats like quiz takes and overall trends — like the percent of people who get each result. With nearly 1.5 million quiz takes, and a phenomenal community that constantly shares their feedback with us, we feel like we have a pretty good handle on what people want and what they need from a menstrual cup.
If you’ve taken our quiz, there is a pretty decent chance that you’ve received what we call our “Soft Average” outcome, which basically means that you need a cup that’s pretty average in terms of length, diameter, and firmness — but that something just a touch softer would really hit the spot. Unfortunately, some of the best cups that fit this space are hard to get in the US. This is where we come in! Sort of.
Since cup making isn’t our bag, we reached out to Saalt, who we thought would make a good fit and, thankfully, they were immediately on board. It’s been nearly a year since we first reached out to Saalt to begin working on this collaboration and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be sharing it with you now!
Introducing The Saalt Soft!
The Saalt Soft has the same great shape as the original Saalt Cup, but in a new, slightly softer firmness. Saalt Soft is what we consider the perfect “soft average”. It should be soft enough not to aggravate those with sensitivities (like those prone to cramping or bladder sensitivities), but also firm enough to still open easier than truly soft cups.
Our hope has always been to help everyone find a cup that will work for them and we think that the Saalt Soft is going to do that for so many more people. Of course, it’s not one-cup-fits-all, and that’s okay. Our quiz and community are here to help you find the one that is. Even we can’t design a cup that works for every user —because that’s just not how vaginas work.
On Bias & Working With Brands
As humans, we all have a bit of bias, but we work very hard to be as unbiased as possible in this space. Part of what makes PACII so special to us is that we are exposed the experiences of so many others on a daily basis that it’s a bit easier to keep our eyes on the bigger picture, rather than just our own personal experiences with different cups.
We’ve worked with brands in a lot of ways, but creating a cup is definitely a new one for us. We wanted to make this cup a reality, but not at the expense of what we’ve always stood for. We will always promote the use of any and all cups for whoever needs them. We’ve said it a million times, but it bears repeating: There is no one perfect cup for everybody — and Saalt knows that, too. The goal here help more people get a cup that meets their needs, and we are so thankful to be able to help make that happen.
