What’s the difference between a softer and harder cup?

Are you wondering whether you need a Classic cup or a Soft one? Not sure what "shore" means? You can find the answer here.

Every woman is suited to something different, so we not only offer our cups in two sizes, but also in various different hardnesses. It’s entirely up to you which one you choose.

If you’re uncertain, this is what we recommend:

  • Soft - ideal for more sensitive women, who might be bothered by the cup when taking it out.
  • Classic - suitable for sporty women, who have a stronger pelvic floor. If a woman clenches her muscles, a soft cup can easily bend and overflow.

And what does "shore" mean? This indicates the hardness, in this case the hardness of the silicon the cup is made from. This is specified for each individual product.
