It’s October - a month that has become synonymous with an important cause: breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer is a ruthless and cruel foe. There would be few people who haven’t been affected in some way by this cancer choosing to target someone they know. Over the past decade, awareness has increased and with that so have advancements in detection and treatment - but it’s a long road. Until we find a cure, there will always be more to do and more awareness to build.
The Differences Between Silicone and TPE Menstrual Cups: We chose to make our Hello Cups from medical grade TPE, rather than silicone, to ensure our menstrual cups were fully hypoallergenic - but also recyclable.
Vaginal cup, period cup, menstrual cup... Whatever you call it, The Hello Cup is a great choice.
It’s worth remembering that we don’t recommend buying your cup based on your flow alone. Instead, sizing is based on fitness and age.
Our XS is our smallest, softest cup. It’s the perfect choice for teenagers, petite users or those who prefer a ‘mini’ tampon.
Our S/M is our ‘one size fits most’ menstrual cup. We recommend it for users under 35 – regardless of whether they have had children or not.
Our L (L for ‘Lovely’) is best for those over 35 who feel it’s a bit more roomy up there.
It’s worth noting that we find physically fit people are often best suited to the S/M regardless of age. If you’re uncertain, Hello Double Boxes are a great option to help you find which size works best for you. Many people find they can wear two sizes.
