Menstrual Cups - Which one?

I hope this is the right area to post this.
I want to order an menstrual cup using amazon prime so it gets here before Aunt Flo. I am 27 and I have had 3 c-sections but I never dilated and am super tight. Is there a big difference between the sizes? I am trying to decide between these cups:
I am open to other brands but they must be available for free 2 day shipping.

I have the Diva cup & it's been great. From what I have read size 1 should be fine. You can google the different brands and there are size comparison pictures on the images page.

I would have to look up the shipping, but I have a Lunette cup,size one, and I love it. I've given birth, but tend to be smaller and I also do Pilates and that tends to make you small. The size one is perfect.

My iDevices are out to get me. Please excuse mistakes.

I have only ever used the diva cup and it works great for me, size 1 is the smaller version (for women that haven't given birth vaginally) even tho I have given birth it still fits me great.

If you want the Lunette, Abby's Lane does free shipping no minimums. I ordered mine but my period ended before it got here. I got mine back at 9.5w PP so I wasn't prepared at all since I'm EBF!

Re: Menstrual Cups - Which one?

Older post so you probably have this all figured out. Of the two links that work for me, I'd go with the Moon Cup. I've tried/used both the Moon Cup (U.S.) and the Diva, and I do like the Moon Cup. What about the sizing? I keep reading that you should use the larger size after childbirth, even if it was by C-section, so I'm wondering how that works in real life.

Re: Menstrual Cups - Which one?

I have only used the Diva Cup, and I love it. You don't have to figure out what size to snip the 'tail'. It's never been a problem length either.

There is some staining, I assume the mooncup does the same. So that's kinda gross.

I still wear liners with it though, sometimes it's needed, sometimes not.

I can't comment on size because I haven't had a baby, but I would just stick with their recommendations...then you know for sure. Good Luck!
