Lunette Cup Review

Lunette cup review

Reusable menstrual cups function like a tampon. However, unlike a tampon they don’t get thrown away or pose the risk of toxic shock syndrome. Lunette menstrual cups come in two sizes and a variety of colors. They are made in Finland from soft, medical grade, FDA approved silicone and are produced with high-quality standards. Take a look at both models below and read about my experience using the Lunette cup.

My original lunette menstrual cup was a win from their facebook page. I received the cup around the same time as my Lena cup and I avoided using it for a few months. My Lena cup felt softer and to me, that meant it would be more comfortable. This was an error on my part.

To my surprise, when I decided to test out my lunette cup, I found it to be the most comfortable menstrual cup I’ve tried yet! I’ve tested out 5 others, so that’s saying a lot. Despite feeling more firm in my hand, I truly forget about wearing this cup when I’m out and about and even used it running last week.

Lunette cups come in two sizes: Model 1 and Model 2. Looking at the images below, the blue cup is the Model 2 and the violet is the Model 1. As you can see, the cups differ in size and shape and the length difference is made up with a longer stem for the smaller Model 1.

Lunette cup features include:

  • Available in 2 sizes
    • Model 1
      • The diameter is 41 mm (1.6 inches) by 47 mm (1.9 inches).
      • The stem measures 25 mm (1 inch).

Overall impression

I love my lunette cup. As I mentioned, I was surprised to find that for me personally, the cup is very comfortable. I have the yellow Model 2 and can wear it on my heaviest day, the day when I feel like I’m peeing blood, and only empty it every few hours.

Do I recommend it?

While not every cup fits every vagina, this is a good place to start. There are kits available with both cup sizes so you can test them both out and has a long list of standards and quality control. The lunette cup is toxin-free and does not contain any phthalates, bisphenol A, or heavy metals.

The lunette cup holds the coveted Key Flag award for superior products made in Finland, TGA (Australia) and FDA 510K (USA) review. That’s pretty cool.

Returns and warranty

The lunette cup, like the diva cup, comes without warranty and because it’s worn in the vagina it’s non-returnable. That being said, it is important to purchase an authentic cup and avoid knock-offs. Why? They can be made with chemicals you don’t want in your vagina and are not subject to quality control and the strict standards held by the lunette company.

  1. Interesting information about the lunette cup, however you have mentioned here that the Model 1 is softer then the Model 2. You also said that the model 1 is recommended for teens and those with strong vaginal wall. But the softer menstrual cups are generally for women that do not have a strong vaginal wall and therefore it opposite from what you mentioned here.
    You should change this info because it is not giving a true info about the menstrual cup.

    1. Hi Marina, I got the information here about the cup differences in firmness/softness is from the Lunette website and I do research, the information here was not placed accidentally or without reference. I added the portion about the vaginal wall. It is comprised of smooth muscle in longitudinal and circular arrangements. Having a strong vaginal wall may mean that the muscular vagina tube itself is less pliable, has increased tone and the muscle fibers more tightly woven and less flexible making the softer silicone easier to get in and out. Does that mean it applies to every vagina? No. As always, personal components must be considered. Also, the cup may be softer for possible presence of the hymen. I have also seen other brands report that their smaller cup is more firm for an increased tone in the vaginal wall, you should refer to each brand’s recommendations for purchase. Please find more information about the cup itself here:

  2. Wow, this is such an useful review! I was confused when I found out that there are tons of options on the menstrual cup market but your review helpef me settle on a Lunette cup. Thanks!

  3. My sister tried a couple knockoff cups because she wanted to save money. Neither of them worked for her, so now she won’t try a good quality cup. I really like my Lunette; it’s way better than tampons.

  4. I’d like to try a menstrual cup, especially for days where I do yoga and want to be comfortable. I just need to make the plunge!

  5. Fantastic review and very thorough!!! Im very excited for your #Lunette Giveaway and I have heard great things about it. Thanks for the awesome opportunity!

  6. I’ve been wanting to try a Lunette, especially after buying the wrong size of a different menstrual cup brand. However, I couldn’t afford to buy another cup at the moment. I learned that Lunette doesn’t do animal testing, which is a big plus for me!

  7. I’m considering trying this cup. I bought a size 2 diva and find it so uncomfortable! I really want to find a cup but just don’t know how to figure out what brand/size to try next.

  8. Very informative! I’ve been interested in the cup for awhile but just have not made the plunge… This may be the push I need to do it.

  9. Thanks for all the info about this cup. I’d love to try it and see if it works better than the Diva for me. I like the color options too.

  10. Finally I found a complete review of the lunette cup. I’m curious of trying it, but I wasn’t sure that lunette could fit to me.
    After reading this review, I think I will try it asap!
    Thank you so much for the information you gave us.

  11. I really love that its toxin free!! I don’t need to be sticking more toxins in my body seeing Im exposed to the everyday enough already! I also love that they have a set available where you can get both. That’s always my biggest cup fear is that Im going to purchase the wrong size and not be able to return it! I am super petite so who knows lol!! I asked my gyno once and she looked at me like I was a nutcase lol!

  12. I’ve tried Lunette cup and Femmecup and I prefer Lunette cup because it is not as rigid as the other and does not hurt me when it opens in my vagina.

  13. Awesome review. I absolutely love Lunette & would love to have extra back ups! Such a great cup. Hope to win. Thanks

  14. Thank you for such a thorough review! I have a small menstrual cup but I have to change it so often that it turns into a hassle. I’m hoping a larger cup will give me more freedom to stop worrying about emptying it every couple of hours. Has anyone had this experience? Needing to empty a smaller cup every few hours, but then moving up to a larger cup and being able to carry on with your day?

  15. Thank you for mentioning knock off brands. Most people don’t even realize that they might be cheaper but they are bad for you and dont last as long.

    Does the rim on model 1 pop out more? It seems like it does in one of the photos.

  16. You’ve got some great information here! I’ve been considering trying a menstrual cup for a little while now. Since having my second baby, my flow has been much… more. I’m getting sick of burning through tampons and I HATE pads. The cup seems like a great alternative!

  17. I haven’t had a period since March 2014 but so looking forward to trying out a menstrual cup when the time comes. I’ve been reading reviews in preparation and I’ve been drawn to the Lunette cup after doing some research and it makes the return of Aunt Flo a little less daunting. Thanks for the great read!

  18. I have been using cloth pads, which aren’t for every situation, but they are what I have afforded. I haven’t been able to afford a menstrual cup. I would need a size 2 because I have had a baby. I have tried some disposable soft cups my friend gave me and they would work great for days I am away from home working. Cloth can be very wet feeling when you are bleeding heavy.

    One day when I can afford it, I will try this brand. The review convinced me it is made well and a good one to try.

  19. I have been trying to decide what menstrual cup to try first. I am thinking of either Lunette, Lena, Meluna, or Skoon. There are so many options it’s a little overwhelming! Thanks for the review.

  20. I will be switching to reusable menstrual products after I give birth. I am really looking forward to trying out a cup. I was looking at the Lena Sensitive, but your review saying that the Lunette is more comfortable makes me think maybe I should try it first! Would it make a good first cup to try?

    1. I love mine! The most important info you can have is your cervix height during your cycle. Typically your cervix will get lower and this is the length you’ll need a cup for. It’s a great cup but not if it’s too long or too short for you 🙂

  21. I’ve heard great things about the lunette cup! Though I probably don’t need a second cup (I have used the Diva Cup for the last 2-3 cycles) I’m hoping to get a lunette as well at some point.

  22. Great info! Lunette was my first cup and I totally LOVE it. I have found that the softness of the small one is very comfortable but it does, once in a while, leak a little tiny bit. Nothing a small pantyliner can’t handle but if someone has strong muscles that would squish the soft cup, the stiffer large one might be better. Seems contrary to what Lunette’s website says, but of course every body is different! Surprisingly, the large also works better for my low cervix and heavy flow. The rim is wide enough to go around the cervix instead of having to sit all the way under it, and you get the higher capacity too.

  23. Thank you so much for this reveiw! I’ve been dying to switch to a menstrual cup for a while, but I just had my 3rd baby and haven’t gelotten a period yet. I’ve looked into a few different ones and was between the diva cup and luna but I think this one may be in the running too. I just wish they weren’t so expensive

  24. I appreciate the review! I just got a Diva 1 and it’s not bad so far, but I think it’s a little long for me. I’m feeling more cramping than normal and I think it’s either because I didn’t not place it properly (still at the beginning of the learning curve) or because it’s a little too long for my body. I’d be interested to see if the Lunette would work better for my body
