Introduction

The Yuuki Cup started production in 2007. There have been a few changes over the years, but it has become a reputable cup with a large following. The original cups were crystal clear but they were the first company to offer a multi-color cup which is still very popular today. These cups can be found online through various shops for as little as $16 per single cup or $34 for a two-pack (based on soft and/or classic clear cups in USD).

Model 1: Yuuki Cup ‘Classic’ Small | Review

What’s Included

The Yuuki Cup is offered to purchase at two different price options.  

The ‘economic’ option excludes all packaging and extras. This is the cheaper option and will require you to visit their website to review instructions if needed. 

The full package includes the shorter and narrower Yuuki Cup in the Classic version which is one of the firmest cups on the market, the Infuser Box (disinfecting box), packaging with instructions, and a small brush to easily clean the air holes. 

Who is it Meant For

The Classic firmness is made from a harder silicone and is easier to handle. It opens easily after it’s inserted and also retains its shape while you remove it. The Classic is mainly for users who are active in sports with a stronger pelvic floor.  According to the Yuuki site, the small cups are designed for younger users and users who have not yet given birth.

Although a firm cup is easier to use since it tends to open on its own, I find that the Classic can be too firm at times. It’s a little harder to fold for insertion, and I needed to be careful when I released the fold or it would spring open too quickly. It has caught me off guard a few times and has popped open against a sensitive area.

While this is a small cup, I found it comfortable to wear and easy to reach for removal even with my medium to high cervix. However, removing it can also be a little difficult because it’s harder to collapse the body to make it smaller while passing back through the vaginal opening.

Special Features

Capacity – The small Yuuki Cup holds 18 ml to the air holes and 24 ml to the top of the rim. This is within the average capacity compared to other small-sized cups. 

Body – The Yuuki Cup is a “V”-shaped cup. It’s wider at the rim and tapers to a point as it nears the stem. Because of the shape and length, this cup may be more comfortable for users with a medium to a low cervix.

Stem – The stem is a hollow stick with five grip rings. It has a decent length that even individuals with a medium to high cervix who choose the small, may find it still easy to reach. Because the classic version is made from a harder silicone, the stem isn’t as flexible as the other softer versions of this cup. The stem can be trimmed easily using each grip ring as a guide.  

Rim – The rim is a thicker band of silicone at the mouth of the cup. This band adds firmness to the upper portion of the cup helping it to open with ease.

Secondary Rim – The Yuuki Cup has an inner secondary rim which looks like a single grip ring on the inside of the cup. This eliminates bulkiness to the outside of the cup while still providing extra firmness.  

Grip Rings – There are four grip rings at the base of the cup that taper in size as it nears the stem. Although these can be helpful during removal, some users have experienced irritation with the harder – Classic version.

Silicone Quality – The Yuuki Company is transparent and welcoming with any questions and concerns about their quality. They proudly display the certificates of both colorless and colorful cups, as well as the disinfecting box on their site. In my opinion, the silicone quality of these cups is excellent and should last many years of use.  

Firmness – The Yuuki Classic is one of the firmest cups on the market. It is known as ‘The Rock’ in the cup community because of this. Many users who engage in sports activities claim that this is the only cup that doesn’t lose its shape while working out. 

Air Holes – There are four large air holes just below the upper rim to help expand the cup after insertion, as well as to help release any seal or suction the cup creates during removal. 

Seams – The only flash line (seam) that can be found is on the side of the rim. However, it is barely visible and can hardly be felt.

Markings – On the inside of the cup is marked with their brand, ‘Yuuki’, a size number indicator, and measuring lines & numbers (in milliliters).

The full package includes the longer and wider Yuuki Cup in the Classic version which is one of the firmest cups on the market, the Infuser Box (disinfecting box), packaging with instructions, and a small brush to easily clean the air holes. 

Who is it Meant For

The Classic firmness is made from a harder silicone and is easier to handle. It opens easily after it’s inserted and also retains its shape while you remove it. The Classic is mainly for users who are active in sports with a stronger pelvic floor. According to the Yuuki site, the larger cup is designed for users who have already given birth, users who a regular sex life, and users over the age of 28.

Although a firm cup is easier to use since it tends to open on its own, I find that the Classic can be too firm at times. It’s a little harder to fold for insertion, and I needed to be careful when I released the fold or it would spring open too quickly.

The Yuuki Cup is offered to purchase at two different price options.  

The ‘economic’ option excludes all packaging and extras. This is the cheaper option and will require you to visit their website to review instructions if needed. 

The full package includes the shorter and narrower Yuuki Cup in the Soft version, the Infuser Box (disinfecting box), packaging with instructions, and a small brush to easily clean the air holes. 

Who is it Meant For

The Soft firmness is made from a softer silicone and may be more comfortable during removal for certain users. It may also be a better option for users who have experienced bladder or bowel pressure while using the classic Yuuki Cup or any other firm cup. According to the Yuuki site, the small cups are designed for younger users and users who have not yet given birth.

Although this is their ‘soft’ version, compared to other cups on the market, this cup is more similar to a medium-firm cup. It’s not extremely firm as the Classic version, yet still opens with ease.

While this is a small cup, I found it comfortable to wear and easy to reach for removal even with my medium to high cervix.

They proudly display the certificates of both colorless and colorful cups, as well as the disinfecting box on their site. In my opinion, the silicone quality of these cups is excellent and should last many years of use.  

Firmness – The Yuuki soft is considered a medium firmness compared to other cups on the market. It’s not extremely firm, but it also is not one of the softest cups out there. However, the Yuuki site suggests this size if you’re ‘quite sensitive’. If you feel more comfortable with something a little softer than a medium-firm cup, the Yuuki colored cups are softer by a shore (hardness) rating of 5.

Air Holes – There are four large air holes just below the upper rim to help expand the cup after insertion, as well as to help release any seal or suction the cup creates during removal.

Detailed User Manual

The full package Yuuki Cup that includes all of the packaging materials and extras comes with a simple yet direct breakdown of how to use, remove, and clean the cup.

When purchasing the ‘economic’ cup (least expensive), you forgo all packaging materials and extras including a user manual. However, the same user manual that comes with the full package option is available to download from each Yuuki purchase page through the official Yuuki site.

The site also offers tutorials on which size & firmness might be the best for you, as well as more in-depth instructions and illustrations.

Alternatives to Yuuki Menstrual Cup

Although there’s nothing quite the same as the Yuuki Cup, especially in the ‘classic’ version, here are a couple of cups that either come close to the firmness or the capacity:

Venus Cup – Looking for a cup with higher capacity and softer? The large Venus Cup is the same body length as the large Yuuki Cup but holds 47 ml to Yuuki Cups 38 ml to the rim. The Venus Cup has an overall medium firmness but also features the inner reinforcement ring that the Yuuki Cups have for extra support.

Lunette Cup – The Lunette Cups are slightly shorter than the Yuuki Cups as well as slightly softer, but not by much. This is a good option if the Yuuki feels a tad too long or too firm. This is still a great cup to use for physical activities.

MeLuna Sport – The body of the MeLuna is straighter, but the firmness of the ‘sport’ version is similar to the firmness of the ‘classic’ Yuuki Cup. The MeLuna is offered in four different standard sizes and four different short sizes for a low cervix.

Summary

The Yuuki Cup is a reputable cup that has become a staple in many user’s period kits. With three different firmness levels, it’s sure to have a firmness that suits you. While the two sizes may be comfortable for users with a low, medium, to a high cervix, users with a very low cervix may find that even the small size may be too long for comfort. If you’re unsure of which size is right for you, check out their size for easy guidelines or pick up the 2-pack and give both sizes a try.

Frequently Asked Questions

    I love my yuuki cups. It was really nice to be able to purchase a classic and a firm in the same size together. As an experienced cup user, I know what size I needed but I wasn’t sure what firmness I’d like better. Turns out, I really like them both. I use the classic (the firmer cup) when working out and it holds up very well. Haven’t experienced any leaks. Both cups are very comfortable (can’t feel them at all) and the capacity is wonderful. Even on my heavy days I can go a full 12 hours between changes. The cup would even hold more, but I empty after 12 hrs because its suggested for safety. I’ve tried/used many different menstrual cups and some soft cups are very difficult to get open. The yuuki soft isn’t one of those. It is still firm enough to pop open and seal without too much manipulation. I just got a rainbow version but haven’t had a chance to try it yet. I’m hopeful that it will work just as well as the classic and the soft. This cup is best used by someone with a high cervix because it is quite long. Even the small is longer than a lot of cups on the market and I can’t imagine it would work for someone with a low cervix.

    I have been using this cup since september 2016 which means I’ve been using it for over a year now and I couldn’t be happier with my yuuki menstrual cup.
    Before I got the yuuki cup I had a MeLuna. Unfortunately I had a very tough time getting the cup to open once it was inside. It was a size M classic firmness. I’d spend 30 mins or so to get the cup to open but it would remain folded and turning and twisting wouldn’t help. After 2-3 months I noticed the cup would get squished and would start leaking. I tried another MeLuna cup in size S. There was a small improvement but after a while this cup’s seal would also break and start leaking. I wrote the company and they told me I should try it again with the M size because there was a learning curve to it and there would be a small chance I needed a firmer cup (MeLuna Sport) however I should definitely first try it with the M size again before getting another cup.
    However, I decided to get another brand of cup as I had grown tired of the constant leaking and hours spent trying to get the cup to open up. I had read somewhere that yuuki cup was one of the firmest cups out there. So, I decided to give it a shot and I must say I couldn’t be more satisfied. The fit is perfect, I almost have no leaks at all. The only times I experienced some leakage was when I hadn’t inserted the cup fully before opening it and I could actually tell there was no tight seal. The cup opens up instantly without any effort and it doesn’t get crushed if you have stronger vaginal muscles. The cup’s capacity is good for a medium flow. On my heaviest day I can go 10 hours without emptying the cup which gets me through the day.

    + PROS: Pops up easily without much effort Seal is easily broken without discomfort Doesn't get squashed or deformed like softer cups so the seal remains intact Doesn't ride up a lot like softer cups Fits perfectly for higher cervix
    - CONS: Can feel a bit stiff on lighter flow days Stem is very long and might need trimming

    I have the Yuuki small and large cup in soft. I love these cups, they are my favorite. I use the small on light days and the large for heavy days. I also have the Lolacup in small and large but I prefer the Yuuki cups because they are firmer, I feel like the Lolacupa are a little too soft and I have more leaks. I do a lot of physical activity and the Yuuki cups are firm enough to stay put during physical activities.

  9. I love the large classic cup as it ensure absolutely not leakage and is able to hold a larger volume, allowing for longer wear. I have the #1 rated cup as well and I always go for the Yuuki cup over the more popular version.
