Favorite Fold

Hi, I'm just wondering what everyone's favorite fold is or which is the most commonly used, and does the type of fold you use vary from cup to cup?

With the sublte rim cups, and really soft cups, I use a C-fold. Bu isnerting it sideways, and slowly guiding it open with one finger, I can just control it better during opening.

But with stiffer cups, or cups with very prronouced rims, I use the punch-down forld. I feel it less when it goes in, and stiffer cups pop open mroe easily (I find that with softer cups, its almost impossible to get a punch-down fold to pop open, lol).

What's your favorite fold for the Diva cup?

Diva? C fold. Its a little softer than soem fo the firmer cup slike say... Large lunette, Fleurcup, or Keeper. I I have toruble getting Diva to pop open from a punch-down fold.

I tend to stick with those two folds though, because all the others are either hard for me to pop open, or hard for me to hold onto during insertion. But of course, everyone feels differently about that, I've noticed Smile

I have a medium Meluna and with that cup I like to use the c fold as I never can get it to open all the way with the punch down fold. With my Keeper cup I use the punch down all the time it makes it easier to insert for me as the c-fold takes longer for me to insert. I have tried the c-fold with my Keeper and it works too but I like the punch down the best when useing that cup. I think it is becasue of the rim. For me I think it would vary from cup to cup.
