Shorties are 30% shorter than standard cups
Here's how they compare
These MeLuna menstrual cups have the same size/diameter but the one on the left is a shorty, designed for low cervix. The cup on the right is our standard height MeLuna.
New York Times Review of over 30 Menstrual Cups:
The best menstrual cup for low cervixes
People with low cervixes often have a hard time finding a menstrual cup
that fits, because most cups are too long. The thermoplastic elastomer MeLuna Shorty
is one of the few cups designed specifically for low cervixes, and
compared with the other low-cervix cups we tested, this model is far
easier to fold, insert, and remove. With a low-cervix cup, you do
sacrifice volume—because the cup is smaller, it can hold less blood—but
comfort is more important than having to change the cup a bit more
frequently.The WireCutter -NYT
MeLuna Shorty - The #1 Low Cervix Cup
With the Shorties, MeLuna has created the perfect menstrual cup for low cervix/ short vaginal canal.
The MeLuna Shorty cups are 30% shorter than the standard length MeLuna menstrual cups and up to 45% shorter than some competitor brands.
By giving you a size range of 4 diameters to choose from, you too can find a shorty that fits you comfortable while providing a secure, leak-free seal.
Our handle styles are flexible and comfortable to wear. There are three to choose from.
The ball is the most popular combination with the Shorty cup since it results in the lowest profile. If you are concerned about being able to grasp the cup for removal we also offer the ring and stem handles in the MeLuna Shorties.
Our handles are very flexible and you can remove them entirely, if you wish.
Wondering What Size Shorty To Get?
Most MeLuna Shorty wearers come to us because they have been unsuccessful with other brands. For that reason we created this visual to help you determine what size Shorty to get. If you were happy with your diameter in your previous cup but it was simply too long, we recommend going with the size up in Shorty. For example if you wore a size 2 Diva (the post baby one) and the diameter was comfortable, order a MeLuna menstrual cup in Shorty XL. If the diameter was slightly uncomfortable as well in the Diva 2, then the Shorty Large would be a good option.
Diameters are the same in Standard and Shorty Cups. The difference is only in the height.
Most MeLuna Shorty Users Do Well With The Following Criteria:
The Shorty Small is used primarily by users with special circumstances:
is created to accommodate users with the need for a very narrow AND very short cup. This may occur due to scarring from injury, radiation treatment or surgeries as well as medical conditions.
Users without special medical considerations generally select by these options:
is commonly used by users of all ages who have not given birth vaginally at all and have a light flow
is commonly used by users of all ages who have not given birth vaginally at all or have not had more than one vaginal birth.
