I like this cup better than any other I have owned.
It took a couple cycles to get the hang of this cup, but I'm definitely happy with it. It's both soft and flexible but also firm enough to really stay put. I think the rim design helps with having less leaks, which I only have a little bit on heavier days. Also, my period isn't all that heavy, for reference, I only need a liner after the first few days.
I loved that there weren’t any suction holes at the top. Those are always a pain to keep clean. The material is very smooth. What I didn’t like is it stuck half way out of me. I have a short cervix and really wanted a cup that is high capacity without the holes at the top. If the company could think about making one for low cervixes, I’d be happy to purchase again. Otherwise, I won’t be using this cup again.
I love not having to worry about changing as frequently. I also love not having to boil between cycles! Insertion definitely got easier after the first few times, but I think it’ll always be pretty messy taking them out. I wish they had one even bigger than a size three though- I could wear ultra tampons for about three hours before leaking, and now can make it about 10 hours before leaking with the size three cup. Highly recommend especially for those with a heavier flow!
I have been a cup user since 2016. I previously used the Lena brand but I'm not a fan of the whole having to boil it so when I saw an ad for the bfree cup saying no boil needed, I figured it was worth a shot. I'm overall satisfied with my purchase.
Pros: easy clean. No small holes that blood clots can get stuck in. I like that red and black are color options because I don't think it will stain (or at least not as noticably) as lighter color cups. I've only used it for one cycle so no personal experience yet on the staining. I like the different size options.
Cons: the cup I used previously was much more stiff, which for me, made insertion and removal easier. The bfree cup is more floppy. I did watch the tips for insertion of this particular cup, which helped some, but I still don't feel 100% successful. However, going from using one brand for years to another, there's bound to be a bit of a learning curve. I also don't like the little nub at the bottom to help with removal. The cup I used previously had a stem and it seemed easier to find it if I had it placed higher up.
General pros for cups versus other menstrual products (not specific to this brand): I leak less with a cup versus a tampon. Cheaper to invest in a cup that lasts for years rather than buying disposable products every month. Less waste. Can leave it in for longer than a tampon and it holds more. I think cups are more comfortable than tampons.
