Lunette cup (blue) vs Diva cup (white/clear)
Below, you see the Diva size 2 and the Lunette Model B. In my hand, the Lunette feels more firm than the Diva cup size 2. However, Lunette reports that their Model B (Large) is more firm than their Model A (small) cup. The Diva cup reports the difference in their cup models, two exist, is cup diameter and volume but length remains about the same.
Both cups have a 46mm (1.81 inches) diameter or the measurement around the circle that goes near your cervix. However, the Diva cup is significantly longer and has a hollow and short tubular stem. The Lunette has a flat and longer stem for retrieval. Stems on both models can be trimmed as needed.
Both of these cups hold 30ml and have measuring lines. Take a look at the models below and the comparison chart.

If you’re deciding between these cups, I hope this review has helped. If you are looking at the small model of each cup you should know that the Diva Model 1 is the same length, but a smaller diameter which is the only real difference between models. The Lunette has significant differences between the small and large including a smaller diameter, softer silicone, smaller length and less volume at 25 ml compared to 30. These length differences can really matter to users with a longer or shorter cervix height.
