I apologize that I’ve gotten a little behind on these reviews, I’ve just had a lot going on.
I was given the opportunity to review the Bella Cup. I received one of each size for review purposes.
It comes with a color brochure in English…

ANATOMY OF BELLA CUP
I really like the smooth texture of the Bella Cup, and I think it’s rather pretty too as far as a menstrual product goes.
The design of the stem really makes it easy to grab hold of for removal, as does the slightly textured stripes around the base of the cup.
The logo is on the inside just under the rim. There are a total of four vent holes to help release the suction.
To show you the difference in the two sizes.
Sorry for the blurry shot, but this one is to show you how soft the Bella Cup is compared to the Ruby Cup – Bella squished down slightly more.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison of all the cups I’ve reviewed so far:
Well, the small one was definitely too small for me! It literally wouldn’t stay in when I stood up. I did have slight problems with the large one, but managed to get some small successes before it would slip.
I really like the design and the smooth texture helped with ease of inserting it.
The velvet bags are very well made and the draw strings hold well.
I tried two different folds with this one (above and below) and found the one below to be the easiest to work with. (Hint: it’s the fold I’ve been most successful with when using every cup so far, your results may vary.)
Over-all my experience with the Bella Cup was hit or miss. Sometimes it would stay in place, then sometimes it seemed super slippery and would just slide out. I think the mixture of it being super smooth and pretty soft was causing my slippage problems. I think strengthening my pelvic floor will help with this.
