    This absolutely works as advertised. No leaks. No worries. No discomfort. A step up from tampons which you have to check more often and can dry you out too much. Great for "maybe" days or light days, but I had no problems with full flow days. Easy to insert and empty. It does help to be familiar with and comfortable with your anatomy. I wish I had been brave enough to try this type of product 15 years ago! I love that Softcup has nothing hanging down like the Diva Cup appears to have. I would highly recommend Softcup to anyone who wants to feel free, clean and confident during her period! At this price it is worth a try. If you don't like it, there are only 2 in a box, so not a big waste.

    I have been using the regular Instead Softcups for years, then discovered these multi-use variety. I was glad. However, they serve as limited use for me. If I'm in public, I can't very well run to a sink and wash out my cup. Thus, I only wear these starting with the third day of menstruation until the end, so I'm not changing it during the day. When I'm on the go, I use the disposables. But overall, the cups are more effective and less costly than using tampons and pads, which are not good for us women anyway, given the chemicals used to process them. Overall, I'd say give it a shot if you haven't tried it. It may take you a minute to get the hang of it, but once you do, you won't go back.

    Comments about Instead Softcup, 2 ea:

    I purchased this to replace conventional tampons. It was fairly easy to insert but I had HUGE problems with leaking, specifically when I did strenuous activities. I recommend the diva cup, which also lasts longer- saving money in the long run compared to the softcup.

    Comments about Instead Softcup, 2 ea:

    No more mess, no more worry about leakage, no more embarrassment. I don't normally write reviews but I am so glad I found this product (thanks to pandora oddly enough!). First of all, if you use nuva ring and your not using this your missing out, you will love this. Second of all, as far as the weekly reusable version, even better than the throw out version. So so so so so so easy to use. Love that all you need to do is rinse this out and it is ready to use again. Being female once a month is messy and sucks no matter what, so get over it, love your body and use this, trust me your body will thank you. I feel so much better using this in any way you can think of. Note to know, you need a private bathroom, but find one, they are out there, I promise. Look further at the product benefits to know even more how much this can benefit your life, they are all true!!! No down side to this!

    Amazing Product!

    Comments about Instead Softcup, 2 ea:

    I have been using the non-reusable version of this product for years, and was thrilled when they came out with this version.

    As I recall, the first few times I used this these years ago there was a small learning curve, but once I mastered them I refused to use anything else. They are more environmentally friendly than tampons, and less drying. Perhaps my "heavy days" aren't very heavy, but I've never run into a situation where I needed to empty the cup someplace that wasn't private.

    These cups do everything they promise, and I sincerely hope they never stop making them!

              Ideal for 12 hr use. No strings = cleaner wear than a tampon. Removal takes getting used to in order to not make a mess.

              Momentary leakage may occur when using the restroom since it momentarily breaks the seal. I've always had them reseal and never leak before or after, but wearing a light pad or pantyliner is a good idea.

              I prefer the softness/smoothness of this material over the other Instead Softcup.

                    Comments about Instead Softcup, 2 ea:

                    I like this product. I've used it for three cycles, plus a couple days at the end of my initial cycle to try it out. You do need a bathroom to yourself to wash it and it does leak sometimes. I've found that it leaks when I go to the bathroom and during heavy flow it leaks right after I reinsert (I think what is leaking is what has made its way far enough down during cleaning that the cup doesn't catch it when it's reinserted). But I've used this partially to my advantage. On heavy days, going to the bathroom empties or mostly empties the cup without me having to take it and clean it in a sink (especially in public restrooms) more often than the 12 hours they recommend. You still need a light pad to do this because it will continue to drip a little after you're done on the toilet. So I still wear light pads with the Softcup, but I do feel that I know when it's going to leak and why, and that it will only leak a tiny bit because of what I previously mentioned. I'm going to get some of the original ones in case I'm in a situation where I really can't get a sink to myself for over 12 hours, but I do like these.

                        I would no recomend to anyone to buy this product. Is horrible. Really a joke! Might be soft but imposible to insert,and also I can not see once inserted how you can be removed. I recomend instead DIVACUP #1.
