Detailed Sizing Guide

Most cup manufacturers give a certain age as the defining factor when choosing the right size. However, choosing your cup isn't always that simple, since there are other factors to consider. There are many 14 year old virgins using the bigger Lunette, as well as middle-aged women who prefer the smaller Lunette. Most women can use either cup, but one of them might be more comfortable.

Factors you should consider:

The amount of flow. We have noticed that this is the most important factor when choosing the right cup. As a general rule, the bigger cup is best for a heavier flow and smaller cup for a lighter flow.

Anatomy. Since every woman's anatomy is different, we sometimes recommend the smaller cup for heavier flow and vice versa. This can depend on:

Age. The smaller Lunette cup was originally designed for younger women to use as their first cup. Young women usually have tighter vaginal muscles and inserting the smaller cup might be easier. The muscles lose elasticity with age and hormonal changes, caused by factors such as pregnancy. These changes can affect the amount of menstrual flow quite radically, making one cup more apt than the other. Many women transfer to the bigger cup at some point in their life and generally speaking, Lunette size 2 is suitable for most adult women.

Model 2 Lunette which is a bit firmer cupVirginity. We recommend the smaller Lunette cup to be used before first engaging in sexual intercourse, even if you have a heavy flow. Because your muscles and hymen are most likely quite tight, it is easier to insert the smaller cup.

Pregnancy. If you have been pregnant we recommend the Lunette cup size 2, because the shape of the vagina changes during pregnancy. Hormones change the vaginal muscles and the hip bone structure.

Location of your cervix. With a thoroughly washed finger, see if you can reach your cervix during menstruation. It is usually located on the left side of the vaginal wall and, when you touch it, feels like the end of your nose. If your cervix sits very low, it is better to choose the smaller Lunette, since it is shorter and most likely fits more comfortably inside your vagina. A low cervix can be touched very easily.

Active in sports, e.g. yoga or Pilates. Sports that strengthen the core muscles extensively also have an effect on pelvic floor muscles. Many women who regularly participate in these kinds of physical activities have very strong vaginal muscles also later in life. If this applies to you, consider using Lunette size 1.

Sensitive bladder. If you have an extremely sensitive bladder, the softer size 1 might be better for you. Remember that most women can’t feel the cup at all, whichever size they choose.
