The Hello Cup
- made in NZ
- reuseable for years
- planet friendly
- holds way more than tampons
The Hello Cup comes in two sizes:
We recommend the S/M for young women or who are nervous about trying a cup. Sometimes very fit women find the smaller size is the better option for them. The M/L is our most popular size. If you have given birth, are over 25 years old, or have a medium to heavy flow – then this is probably the one for you. Sometimes it’s a case of trial and error. For example, if your S/M Hello Cup is opening but you get leakage, you might need to go up a size. On the other hand if you find your M/L won’t open – you might need to go down a size. There is an option to purchase a Hello Cup box with both sizes in it for $69. This helps take some of the guess work out of it and many women find they can wear both sizes so opt for the smaller sized Hello Cup on light days and the larger one on heavy days.
The diameter of the S/M is 41mm and the overall length, including the toggle, is 59mm. It holds 21mls (to the holes).
The diameter of the M/L is 45mm and the overall length, including the toggle, is 64mm. It holds 28ml (to the holes).
Why the Hello Cup is your new bestie
The Hello Cup is proudly made and designed in New Zealand using top notch German medical grade thermoplastic elastomer, a type of plastic commonly referred to as TPE.
We chose TPE for Hello Cups because it is fully recyclable at the end of its life, it is comfortable and soft to the touch and it is hypoallergenic – making it perfect for women who have silicone sensitivities. If you look after your Hello Cup it will last you 5 years. Pretty amazing, eh?
We feel strongly that, when it comes to your vjayjay, you only want to put trustworthy stuff up there (sound advice from our grandmothers). Not all cups are equal. The Hello Cup is in a league of its own.
We get it, you’ve been using tampons for years without problems so why should you change?
Here are some reason why we’re not fans of tampons or sanitary pads:
- they don’t hold as much as a Hello Cup
- they are expensive
- they’re bad for the environment
- most are chemically treated
- they need to be changed regularly
- tampon strings stink if you wee on them – meaning you really need to change them each time you go to the loo
- pads lose their stick meaning your flash undies won’t stay flash for long
We think you should say ‘hello’ to a Hello Cup because:
- they’re reusable
- they don’t smell
- one cup will last you several years
- they can hold three times more than tampons
- they are ideal for women of all ages
- they’re ideal for athletes
- they are proudly made in New Zealand
- they’re comfortable
- they are easy to use
- you never get ‘caught short’
- they don’t dry out your fanny like tampons do
