Since my first experience with the bfree cup, my relationship with menstrual blood has been revolutionized. Owing to the nature of my work, i travel often to remote rural areas where during my periods where access to basic sanitation is limited. I would always be anxious once the time to change my tampons neared. I would have to walk around with soiled pads or tampons in my bag. After discovering the bfree cup, I enjoyed my fieldwork more and travelling without the anxiety. No leaks. No odor. No pad burns/friction. Exciting colours. No colouration. A girl empowered to be whole and free ;)
I first got bfree cup No 1, worked perfectly for me, though i had to change on my heavy day. So i figured that i need a larger cup that can go a whole day without a change break. I then ordered Cup 2, the Tangerine one, very cheerful colour. I struggled to insert it. The punch down fold works but unravels before i can perfectly position the cup, so i had leaks. I tried again and still found it rather more difficult to handle than cup 1. The material feels more bulky/tough and does not fold easily. It left me sore from all the failed attempts to insert, release the fold and ensure proper positioning.
Would it be an ideal to get an in between cup, say 20 ml? Moulded as close to cup 1 material and pliability. That extra 5ml is what majority of us need to get a stress free full day!
Thank you for bringing the bfree cup to the children of the world. We appreciate your innovation and continued research for better experiences. Fly high!
Game changer! I really like the design - the grips on the ball and cup are quite helpful, cup material is a happy in-between firm and fold able, might be venturing in TMI zone but significantly less odour was experienced while using cup. Have only used for 1 cycle (using size one) so far but will I'm sold! Am also quite happy that bfree is local Canadian company!
This review is for anyone who has been nervous to try a cup. I was skeptical for YEARS! I tried the Diva cup originally and always could feel it when it was in. I switched to the B Free Cup and it was life changing. One thing I will say is you can't give up after your first try. It took me almost 4 periods to feel comfortable inserting and taking it out. I am a very queasy person so if you are too - there is hope you will overcome it and change how you view menstruation!!
I love Bfree!! The cups are easy to insert/take out and super comfortable! I wish I’d started using them earlier. I just got one for my teen to try as well!
I had trouble with this cup at first, it was being difficult about opening. After 2 days of trying I got it and it went smoother after that. The fit of the cup is great. It's slimmer than other cups I've used, so it didn't feel as bulky. My only complaint is the ball stem. Cups have always sat low on me and I always have to cut off the stem. This cup was no exception. I had to cut off the ball, but because it was a lot bigger than other stems I've had it left a pretty jagged edge. I ended up having to file it down so it was smooth. A bit of a pain, hence why I dropped a star in my rating. Other than that, I think this is a comfortable cup with good capacity.
