If you are the kind of girl that thrives with an active lifestyle, you need a menstrual cup that can keep up!
There are so many “activewear” products out there, from headbands and hair ties to shoes and socks, but the one thing the world doesn’t seem to have is a period product for the active lifestyle.
If you know anything about Pixie Cup, you know that we are a team of people who LOVE the outdoors. Whether it is skateboarding, skydiving, lifting weights, swimming, snowboarding, kayaking or hiking, we love to get out there and LIVE! And we sure don’t want our periods to get in the way of adventure.
Can you relate to that?
So, in this blog post today, we are going to cover the three reasons why the Pixie Cup is the best period product for a woman with an active lifestyle!
It is reusable and comfortable
The existence of a menstrual cup opened a whole new world to women. Now, you can wear a period product for 12 hours, reuse it for 10 years, and you can do anything in it without any fear of leaks, because your cup has you covered.
Not only is the menstrual cup reusable, which is handy when you are completing extreme sports or taking trips, such as backpacking, that last for several days, but it is also comfortable (you won’t even know it’s there!) and holds a LOT of fluid! In fact, our Pixie Cup Slim Small cup holds 4X the amount of a regular tampon!
It comes in a variety of styles, textures, and sizes, designed to fit perfectly
The Pixie Cup comes in two different types, and many different sizes, because every body is created differently! We wanted to design a cup for everyone, and that means offering a variety of options, so you can choose the one that fits you just right! (To visit our size guide blog post, click here.)
Because you have an extremely active lifestyle, you will want to factor that into your decision of which cup you use. The Pixie Cup Slim is a softer cup, that molds better to the movement of your body. This is the cup we recommend for the women who are trying a period cup for the first time or those who have a lower cervix, because it is a little gentler. As a softer cup which is more flexible and has a strong seal, this is usually our recommendation for first-time users and those with an active lifestyle.
The Original Pixie Cup is a firmer texture and holds its shape with strength. If you have experienced childbirth, have a higher cervix, or are looking for a cup that is a little stronger to withstand energetic movements, this is a good cup choice for you.
The Pixie Cup empowers women across the world
Not only are we passionate about giving female athletes and adventurers a period option… but we are dedicated to providing that freedom to women everywhere. Everyone deserves a chance to live free.
For every cup that is purchased, we give a cup away completely free to a woman in need. There are girls around the world who can go to school, go to work, and create a new life for themselves because they don’t have to worry about their periods anymore. Click here to read a first-hand story from one of our partners. It’s just astonishing that period freedom is not available to women everywhere, so we are doing our part to make sure thousands of women can have that freedom today.
So, what do you think? We are pretty sure you are going to fall head-over-heels obsessed with your cup, just like us. But… if you don’t love your cup, let us know! We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of our products, because we believe in them that much and will stand behind them.
