Poll! Favorite Fold?

Post  Sekhmet on Tue Apr 20, 2010 11:34 pm

I am curious what fold people prefer to use. I usually hear that simpler is better, and it seems that most people use the Punch-Down. Yet, other women swear that the only fold that ever worked for them is something totally off the wall I'd never heard of! So, I thought I'd ask and see which fold is most popular on this forum!

Please let us know! What is the fold you use most often?

If you don't use one of the one's listed, explain how you do it or give us the name of the technique! :3

I love the punch down, it's the only fold that I can get in all the way. All of the other folds are either too complicated, don't work with my keeper because it's too firm, or they fail to go all the way up. I don't know what I would do without it.

Triangle fold! I can feel that one unfold.

C-fold for smaller and/or softer cups. Punch down for firmer/more pronounced rim cups Smile

Looks like someone voted for the Origami Fold. O_o That one always looked quite complicated to me.. Anyone care to explain possible benefits of the origami fold? I know everyone is different, but I'm interested anyway. Very Happy

Gotta love that oragami fold! It's small enough to go in comfortably and pops open easily.

I voted for punch down too because it's the only one that works for me.

I was planning to mostly stick with the C or punch down, but I will probably be trying out the origami fold too. If it springs open easily in your hand, it might pop open easily inside too, right? lol At least, that's my rationale for trying it out!

C fold for my LadyCup because it's soft enough, and small enough in that fold and pops open best from there.

Punchdown (or sometimes Origami) for my femmecup because it's got such a large rim which is too bulky in a C fold, and the stiffness of the rim lets it pop open easily.

i'm fairly new to cups, and for now i find the labia fold easiest for my small lunette and origami the easiest for my large ladycup (the only fold that actually opened). i like the triangle fold but i have a low cervix so i let my cup open before it's fully in...so i have to use other folds. i get superlow days sometimes, haven't figured out whether i can use anything but the C on them.

I find the c fold, 7 fold difficult to hold, it unfolds before I can put it in. The punch down is a bit uncomfortable while the origami fold is just right.

I, personally, use the origami fold. It's narrow like the punch-down fold, but opens just as easily as the 7 fold.
