Cruising for a cup? You’re spoiled for choice! You might be wondering whether you should opt for the Lily Cup Classic or Lily Cup One. There are both great menstrual cups that will help you reduce your ecological footprint while keeping you covered for hours. But you need to know more information than that if you’re going to pick out the perfect cup for your periods. Read on to find out more!

Lily Cup Classic

What It Is:

Lily Cup Classic is our very first menstrual cup, and we’re still pretty proud of it. It has smooth, sleek sides for a great fit and a spill-proof rim for a mess-free removal. It also has a grippy stem that makes it easier to take out. 

Who It’s For:

Lily Cup Classic comes in two sizes, so it suits a lot of people! Size A is 40 mm tall and holds  25ml of liquid. Size B is slightly taller and holds more liquid. In testing, we found that women who have been pregnant or generally have a weaker pelvic floor often find these cups more secure. 

Essentially, the Lily Cup Classic is a great menstrual cup for people with a very high cervix and/or a very heavy flow. 

Lily Cup One

What It Is:

A unique, bubbly cup, Lily Cup One has a slim design that’s a better fit for smaller anatomies but uses its design to maintain cup capacity. Lily Cup One also features a stiffer rim than any of our other menstrual cups, which makes it easier to pop open once the cup is inserted within.

Who It’s For:

Lily Cup One’s designed for people who are new to periods, or newly switching from pads and tampons to cups. It has several unique features designed specifically for those folks!

Even folks who are pros when it comes to popping in a menstrual cup may prefer its unique design, and how easy it is to open. Lily Cup One is our most petite cup, yet it still has an impressive 20 ml capacity (20 ml – or the same as 2 regular tampons).

    Which cup should I use? I have a low cervix but I have very, very heavy periods. This would be my first mensural cup, but I’m having a hard time deciding between the Lily cup which holds a lot or the Lily Cup One which recommended for a low cervix. Please help! Thanks 🙂

      Hi Maja! Thank you for reaching out 🙂 In my opinion, comfort is most important, so I would opt for the Lily Cup One or Lily Cup Compact if you have a low cervix. You may need to empty it slightly more often than if you had the larger cup, but it will be more comfortable to wear as well as insert and remove.

    So far, my experience has been good. I used a DivaCup last month . I liked it, it was comfortable but it rode back into my body and I had to dig it out, manually. I thought that this might be “periodic” (<— haha) but it persisted throughout my cycle.

    My OBGYN told me once that I have a very high cervix (I guess that this means "longer"). I found recommendations about your brand and followed them to your site.

    So far, I have been satisfied with the original cup. I bought the one for women who had possibly been pregnant and had a natural birth or had a high cervix. I have a high cervix and so I opted for it.

    As a note: this cup appears to be the same diameter and length of my DivaCup. For some reason, it fits into my body with no slippage. I guess that my anatomy prefers the LilyCup because "size wise", I didn't see any reason to think that they were any different.
    I would recommend this to women who have a high cervix.

    So far, I've had no spills. I can actually grasp the pull at the end of the cup and nothing goes any further than a normal tampon. There's been no need to dig objects out of my privates (which SCARED and disgusted me). I hated that aspect (of the DivaCup) and couldn't for the life of me get through more than one cycle with that potty anxiety. LilyCup leaves me fear free.

    I think I'll like my new cup a lot.

    Additionally, I think that the LilyCup is about 1/2 price of the DivaCup. I wish I would have known what fits my "parts" best without hunting, trial & error. Glad I do, now!

    I am thinking of trying cups but I am confused what the difference is between the lily cup one and the compact?

    I have to use lillets instead of tampax as they (tampax) are too long and uncomfortable. Are you able to advise if either the one or compact would be suitable? Is one ‘shorter’ then the other?

    Pretty good article, and it helped me make my solution crystal clear – BOTH! Lmao. Classic A and Compact B, because I just feel like playing with the compact one especially when traveling.
