How Comfortable is it? And how long can it be worn?

Are Instead Softcups comfortable?

I have had a few women ask me this.

Simple short answer, YES.
Let me first start off by saying when I first bought these at CVS, I remember getting to the van and as soon as all kids were buckled up I had to open the box and check them out. I was really excited. Until...

I saw this...

Ok, I'm not going to lie, my first thought was...There's no way!

Its huge.

How could this ever be comfortable.

And how in the world am I going to get it in. Probably what you may be thinking right now.
Well you insert it by pinching it like this,
makes you feel better, right?

Well I'm here to tell you they are comfortable.

Fact is when inserted properly they are so comfortable you don't even feel its there.

These are far more comfortable than any tampon that I have ever tried. And I have tried most. :) Of course the first few times you try the softcup it may take awhile. It did for me. It is a learning experience.

 Remember like with anything new it takes time.

And trust me It's so worth it. When I say these have changed my periods they really have.

How long can Instead Softcups be worn?

Up to 12 hours.  Now that doesn't mean on heavy days you can wear it for 12 hours. Usually for me its about 8 hours for heavy day. But we are all different and its trial & error. Just like with anything else. But it surely beats changing tampons every 2-4 hours.

You can also wear them overnight, in the pool, on the soccer field, riding your bike, any sport or activity.

I personally love that I don't have to watch the clock so much. I can go to the grocery store, library and post office and not have to worry about it.

When we went to the beach, they were a lifesaver or should I say vacation saver? :)

If you have any questions at all please leave me a comment or you can visit Instead Softcup.

**Over the next month I'm going to go over all the ways Softcups have changed my periods.

  1. I want to switch. My husband thinks it sounds gross but to me all things dealing with periods is gross. My periods are so painful and I've heard that not using tampons and switching to these has made women's periods less painful and lighter.

  2. You forgot to mention the best thing you can do with Softcup, which is UNIQUE to Softcup! ;)

    Spare a thought for us in the UK who have to mail order them from the US :(


Got something to say?
