Lumma Cup is a new line of menstrual cups, from the makers of Lumma Disc, that come in a staggering ten size models to fit nearly all bodies. The cups also feature indentations around the base that help to break the suction during removal. The stems on the Lumma are hollow.
The firmness is the same for all the Lumma cup sizes and styles – they would be best described as “Average firm.”
How to Find Your Lumma Cup Size
The sizing system appears complicated at first but let me break it down for you.
S, M, and H: Sizing by your cervix height.
- S = “short cervix” / “low cervix”
- M = “medium cervix” / “average cervix”
- H = “high cervix” / “tall cervix”
Within these categories of Cervix Heights you have further sizing options.
- By default, S, M, and H sizes are “small” meaning the cup has a narrow diameter designed for those who are under 30, haven’t given birth, or for anyone who feels they should have a smaller diameter.
Lumma Cups with “B” in their size coding have a larger diameter designed for anyone who has a less tone pelvic floor, due to the natural aging process or due to a full term pregnancy.
- B = “over 30 and/or have had a full term pregnancy.”
Lumma Cups additionally adds another sizing attribute, rounder bottomed cups in their “Medium” and “High” cervix cups that give the wearer a higher capacity. Cups that have a + in their sizing code have a higher capacity.
- + = “Heavy Flow” cups.
How to crack the code: A Lumma Cup MB is for someone who has an average height cervix and is over 30/ has had a full term pregnancy and with a light-average flow. An H+ would be for someone with a high cervix, under 30, and has a heavy flow.
Yes it’s a lot to take in at first! It took me some time to understand their sizing code and options but when you know your body well this system is extremely exciting! You can narrow down your needs to the perfect cup for you.
Hopefully this guide will help you find just the right cup for you. PN will have a Lumma Cup review in the future.
