The OrganiCup is a Danish brand menstrual cup made from medical grade silicone. I was kindly sent a cup from Teresa over at Feminine Wear for review and later purchased the other size myself from a local retailer, Raspberry Rascals.
The OrganiCup comes packaged in a brown box, made from 100% recycled materials. Upon opening the box, I noticed that there are no instructions. Instead, the company has chosen to print the instructions on the inside of the box. Also included is a cotton pouch with the menstrual cup inside.
I love that the box is made from recycled materials. I feel that it shows that OrganiCup as a company have thought about the impact of producing their product. Especially with how they’ve made the box the instructions, too. Saves unnecessary paper being used.
The OrganiCup is available in two sizes: Size A and Size B.
38mm diameter | Total length (cup and stem) 64mm | Cup length 47mm | Stem length 17mm | Capacity (to air holes) 23ml
44mm diameter | Total length (cup and stem) 67mm | Cup length 49mm | Stem length 18mm | Capacity (to air holes) 30ml
Appearance & Use
The OrganiCup menstrual cup is a semi-opaque clear cup, with a peachskin feel to it. It is made from a medical grade silicone which is FDA approved. The stem is firm and solid with pronounced ridges for grip. The OrganiCup is v-shaped, and has obvious seams down the sides from production.
The firmness of the cup is medium, but the body is a tad softer than the top half and rim of the cup. The resistance of the rim helps the cup open easily, and I find it to be comfortable. I don’t feel any pressure from it on my bladder, and have successfully slept in the OrganiCup without waking, feeling like I need to constantly pee.
There are two measurement lines on the side of the cup, but don’t have the measurement itself on the cup. I couldn’t find the information anywhere on the box, or even on the OrganiCup website. Thankfully Feminine Wear lists the information. The lower line indicates 5ml, and the higher line indicates 10ml on size A and 15ml on size B.
I’m glad to see another brand thinking about the impact of their product. Many other brands pack their products in single-use plastic, which is wasteful. So I am glad to see that OrganiCup have used recycled materials to produce their packaging, which shows they are mindful.
I feel that the brand needs to revisit the storage pouches they use. Unfortunately, they are quite small, and it’s had a negative effect on the larger cup I have. This is because it was packed in the pouch with the stem bent to make it fit, which has permanently bent the stem. This means that when I use this cup, I have to place it in such a way that the bend curves forwards. Otherwise, the stem pokes my vagina. The smaller cup is fine, as the stem was left poking out the top of the pouch instead of being bent to fit.
I also wish that there was more information about the company and the cup on the OrganiCup website. I personally like to read up about a brand, how they started and all that jazz. But maybe that’s just me?
But with that aside, I really do like the OrganiCup. I find it super easy to insert and open. It’s comfortable to wear and I can sleep with it in with no issues.
