Selena Cup Review

I recently had the opportunity to test out the Selena Cup and I want to share my review with you. The Selena Cup is made is designed and made in Austria with medical grade silicone that comes from Munich!

I tested out the Selena Cup during my cycle and have my experience and overall opinion below. Find out if I liked this cup and see the Selena Cup compared to several well-known brands in images below.

Disclosure: I received samples to facilitate my review however the opinions here are my own.

When I first opened the Selena Cup packages, I noticed how soft and petal-like the cups and colors present. The cups are muted and on the firm side. They pop open for me without issue and I would place it a bit higher than the firmness of my Lunette Cup but with a thicker body and more pronounced rim.

The ring stem did not appeal to me. At first, I thought it would feel stiff and uncomfortable. However, I am thrilled to report that the ring stem was very comfortable! It’s easy to grasp and is positioned in a way that it did not touch my vaginal walls or provide a poking sensation when I sat like some cups can.

Let’s start with cup features.

My experience with the Selena Cup:

For my review I primarily used the Selena Cup Medium and Large.

The Medium is comparable to many small sizes from other brands and the large to the large. Where the Selena Cup adds an additional size is with their small cup. I have it compared to several other smaller cups above so you can see the difference in volume and diameter.

This is a firm cup so it popped open easily. I usually use the punch down fold and this cup opened really nicely. I never once wondered if it was open! I couldn’t even twist the cup, it’s that firm but I could feel that it was open.

The rim took me a little time to get used to. I wore the Medium the first two days of my cycle and I definitely felt the rim. My cervix can be sensitive after I had my children. I had some cramping this cycle and wasn’t sure if it was related, but decided to go to a softer backup. I switched to a softer cup, the Loulou Cup, which is much softer and felt noticeably better.

I went back to the large Selena Cup on day 4 and even slept with it in! I didn’t feel the cramping and believe I adjusted to the firmness and shape. Unlike my high-capacity Super Jennie cup, I didn’t crush this one and wake up with massive leaks in the morning.

I continued switching sizes as needed for flow and, after a few days, I adjusted to the firmness and didn’t notice the rim at all and had my cramping subside. Not sure if the cramping was related.

I even wore this cup swimming and due to the firmness, I knew it wouldn’t fold or crush with my movements.

I had zero menstrual cup leaks outside of leftover blood in the canal.

Overall opinion:

The Selena Cup adds a nice option for menstruators looking for a more firm silicone cup. The sizing options are great. The ring stem is comfortable and easy to use and as this cup grows in popularity it will be available at many retailers.

Where to buy the Selena Cup. Currently, this cup is not available from a US retailer. You can go right to the Selena Cup website and contact them. I did ask one of my affiliates to look into carrying the cups because I know she ships WW and has great customer service! I will update this post with retailers as they emerge.

  1. You don’t find the similarity between the selena and meluna cups odd? I assume they’re both official brands, so it’s technically not a rebranding or ripoff, but are the companies related? If not, I feel like it’s just too similar. With the ring stem option, the selena looks almost exactly like the meluna, except that melunas come in more colors and 3 different firmnesses (it appears that selenas only come in 2 different colors and 2 different firmnesses). I know that meluna cups are made from TPE, not silicone, but the similarities are just too numerous to ignore, in my opinion.

    1. I am not taken by the similarities. Many cup brands have similar shapes and features. Especially cups that are made by the same cup manufacturer. I’m not sure who makes either brand’s cups but if the manufacturer has a mold they use, they simply sell cups to different labels with the brand’s specifications. For example, I picked up a cup last week and thought “wow, this looks just like X-cup” and it turns out that they have the same manufacturer so the cups have a lot of similar features. What I do not care for are knock-off cups on websites overseas that steal the design and make the cup for under $1 with less than quality materials, selling them for a fraction of the cost. In my experience, they can have a bad odor and may have some negative consequences for users. I do have a glitter cup on my wish list from MeLuna and their shorty models are very popular.

  2. Ah, I see. I didn’t realize different brand cups might have the same manufacturer but that makes way more sense now.
