Smallest Menstrual Cups For Your Body

Menstrual cups come in a range of styles, colors, and most importantly, in different sizes. Our bodies differ slightly, and a menstrual cup that fits your identical twin sister, might not actually fit you!

There are so many choices when finding the best menstrual cup for you. Many manufactures of menstrual cups have several sizes, and most will suggest that women under 30, have never had a vaginal birth, or have light flows, should go for their smallest menstrual cups. And women who are over 30, have given birth vaginally, or have heavy flows, should go for the larger size. However, these are general rules, and may differ for each woman.

Small Body, Small Vagina, Small Cup? Not necessarily!

In theory, smaller menstrual cups will work with physically smaller people, but remember that vaginas are naturally very elastic, and can stretch (how else does a baby’s head fit through!!). You might also think that if you are young, or not sexually active, you have a smaller vagina, but this is not always the case. Your pelvic muscles might just be super strong! Knowing your body, and making an informed decision based on the information given is the best way to find the best menstrual cup for you.

Here is a list of our chosen smallest menstrual cups for your body.

Petite FemmyCycle Menstrual Cup

FemmyCycle Petite

stem 19mm or 0,75in

  • Length 1.50” (38 mm)
  • Diameter 1.22” (31 mm)
  • Capactiy 17.5ml (0.59 fl oz)
  • Stem .75” ring (19 mm)

This menstrual cup is great for beginners, and was actually renamed from Teen to Petite. It is marketed to women with light flows due to it’s capacity. The shape may seem a bit daunting, but once inside, you don’t feel a difference. The unusual no-spill design is great for those who are unfamiliar with using a menstrual cup, and the removal ring is one of the easiest to use currently in the market. Women who have a tilted cervix may also benefit from using this smaller cup. One reviewer also wore the FemmyCycle Petite with her IUD (intrauterine device) and found it did not impact her IUD at all as it sits a bit lower than most other menstrual cups.

Lunette Cup

Lunette Size 1

stem 25mm or 1"

  • Length 1.90” (47 mm)
  • Diameter 1.6” (41 mm)
  • Capactiy 25ml (0.85 fl oz)
  • Stem 1” (25 mm)

The Lunette cup is smaller and is a great alternative to the equivalent DivaCup. It’s found to have a more flexible silicone than the Lunette Size 2, so it’s easier to insert for those who are a bit apprehensive. The smooth interior makes it easier to clean, and the air holes are right at the top and a little larger to make it easy to remove the cup. As the holes are right on the top, the capacity is higher than other equivalent small menstrual cups. It has a nice sturdy flat stem at the base of the cup, with helpful ridges which you can also use as a guideline if you need to trim the stem. The shape itself is more rounded, and will conform to your body. The Lunette is super cute, coming in several different colors, and is made in Finland with the highest medical-grade, FDA silicone. It’s a great little cup that packs a punch!

Saalt Menstrual Cup

Saalt Small

stem 23mm or 0.9in

  • ​Length 1.90” (47 mm)
  • Diameter 1.6” (41 mm)
  • Capactiy 25ml (0.85 fl oz)
  • Stem 0.9” (23 mm)

This Saalt menstrual cup has great reviews and comments online. The bulb like shape makes it very simple to insert and open to create a nice and comfortable seal. Saalt menstrual cups are also made in the USA with 100% medical-grade silicone, and is FDA registered, and chemical free which makes it naturally hypoallergenic, non-toxic and BPA and latex free. Perfect for those who are a little more sensitive, down there. The stem is made out of a soft flex silicone, and may users comment on how soft and comfortable this is. It also has slight ridges to make it easier to remove. Here at Menstrual Cupaholic, we also like Saalt’s mission statement which is that "everyone should have quality and sustainable period care." Saalt partners with charities to provide period care to women and girls who may not have access to the same care that everyone deserves. Such a cute design, packaging, for such a great cause!
