Announcement:: our Pixie Cup is going wild with a brand new stem! Don’t worry… this is still the cup you know and love… but better!

So… what’s the difference?

In this blog post, we’ll be talking all about the original stem: why people choose it, what we changed, and why it’s better!

Pixie Menstrual Cup

What is the difference between the Pixie Cup and Pixie Cup Luxe?

The Pixie Cup is the very first cup we ever designed! It is created from a thick, firm silicone that holds its shape very well. It is available in three sizes: Small, Large, and XL.

The Pixie Cup Luxe was our second cup design. It is a similar shape to the original cup, but comes in two sizes: Small and Large. These cups have a slightly higher capacity than the original cup, and a very small stem. The cup is also made of a softer, more pliable silicone that molds to your body.

Which cup is better?

Both our original cup and our Luxe are great cups to choose, for different reasons! They each are designed to fit the need of different body types and preferences!

About the Luxe cup.

This cup is a great choice for first-time cup users or younger girls because it is gentler and easier to fold! It also is somewhat flexible, which makes it a great choice for those who have a tilted uterus or short cervix.

About the Original cup.

This cup is a firmer texture which makes it a no-brainer choice for ladies who have given birth vaginally, or those who prefer a cup that holds its shape better. If you find that your cup moves around a little, if you have a high cervix, or if you need a little extra fluid capacity, the original cup would be a good option for you.

Let’s talk about the new stem.

Pixie Cup Size-Chart

So… why did we decide to introduce a brand new stem to our original cup? The answer is simple. It simply fits so much better!

The Pixie Cup traditionally had a wide, flat stem that was very long. Many members of the Pixie Squad had to trim the stem and file it down to make it fit. While this wasn’t too much of a hassle, we wanted you to be able to own a cup you immediately love, no adjustments necessary!

The brand new Pixie Cup stem is round and small! It is much shorter than the previous stem, so it isn’t likely to rest in your vaginal opening, but instead remain inside your vaginal canal. The stem also features an easy-to-grab end so you won’t lose your grip during removal!

    I’m excited…but I just bought a new combo pack recently, and now I wish I knew this change was coming because I definitely would have waited 😭.

    This stem is horrible compared to the original. So disappointed as this was my favorite brand of menstrual cups. It was almost impossible to remove.

      Hi Alex! I’m so sorry to hear you’re disappointed with the new design! We have a 100% Happiness Guarantee so we will refund your cup if you so wish. Have you thought about the Pixie Cup Luxe? It’s designed to sit lower in your vaginal canal and the stem is shaped differently so it might be easier for you to grab?
