Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to tampons or pads :) I tried SoftCup when thinking of switching to a "real" menstrual cup. I LOVE SoftCups, and actually did end up trying a "real" menstrual cup since then, but can't get it to fit comfortably. With Instead SoftCups, I can't feel a thing, it is very comfortable to insert and remove, and it makes my period soooooo much less annoying! The only downside is that they DO sometimes leak, but no worse than an overfull tampon, and they are soooooo much easier to leave in while using the bathroom. Since Instead was bought out, I had a hard time finding the SoftCup, so thank you for continuing to carry them at a fairly reasonable price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love Instead Soft Cups I will not use anything other than these disposable menstrual cups. I love the fact that I can wear them for up to 12 hours at a time. It makes for a great nights sleep! I was extremely upset when my local Walmart stopped carrying this product and I found out the company that makes them might discontinue them. I really really hope this product is available for many years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have I got one of these as a sample from an ad in Cosmo years ago and they have been my go to product since! They took me a few times to get used to, as far as using them but now I can't live without them. Rite Aid is the only store anywhere near me that sells them now too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I cant live without This product is something I cant go without. Every woman wants a product they can use and forget they are on their period. Its comfortable and I wont use anything else. Sometimes I have to search different stores cause not every store carries it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring them back! I've used these for over a decade and I can't live without them. I've been trying the reusable menstrual cups but they are not shaped like Instead... and are so uncomfortable. Maybe make a reusable that fits like instead??

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It’s alright Putting it in took a lot of practice. It comes with instructions but I looked up videos too. That’s when I finally understood how it sits inside. I had intercourse with it in twice (not in a row) and my partner said it was uncomfortable. The second time we didn’t finish because it hurt him. I found it to leak at about 11 hrs. This made me be mindful to take it out a bit early. I did use tampons when I got frustrated and felt it was great for those days a tampon is too much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not fit Bought these as a cheaper alternative to the Diva cup. The ring is hard and not very bendable. I followed the instructions, multiple times, and cannot get the product inserted. Once inside, it will not pop out to the original shape. It feels very uncomfortable. For me, a complete waste of $11.99 plus tax. If you want to try cups, I recommend just spending the money to get an actual Diva cup. You get what you pay for and this cheaper alternative is just that...a cheaper version that is sub par.
