The DC has a moneyback guarantee so if you don't like it get your money back too. Plus the size is like 1/8'' smaller. So I think you'll be fine. It's not a big difference.

| Dear Calia: |
We cannot refund because of disappointment with the product. It is
impossible for us to determine if a woman has really tried to master the
use or has simply changed her mind.
The DivaCup, as all menstrual cups and tampons, are considered medical
devices and are regulated by the FDA and Health Canada. We also must
adhere to local health regulations.
The amount of energy expended on returns has taken us way from our
ultimate goal: to offer The DivaCup to women worldwide, and thereby have a
positive effect on womenâ€™s lives, as well as reduce the disposable
feminine hygiene eco-footprint on the planet. Use of The DivaCup lessens
the billions of tampons and pads being dumped into the environment.
The good news is that with patience and careful attention most women learn
the knack of using The DivaCup quickly, and they want to keep it! We offer
continued assistance on how to use the cup should one need more
Your friend will want to check with her vendor to learn of their return
policy before purchasing. Please take note of the sizing information
Model 1: for women who are under 30 years old who have never had
childbirth or c-section.
Model 2: for women who are 30 years old and over and/or for all women who
have had vaginal childbirth or c-section.
There is a small difference between the two sizes (Model 1 is 1/8" (~0.3
cm) smaller), but it is important to use the recommended sizing to prevent

She said they had a pinning ceremony (using the little diva pin) for all the girls that got one. I thought that was hilarious!!
I use the tampons with plastic applicators. I can't beleive it never occured to me how wasteful that is. If diva cup doesn't work, i'll atleast switch to the applicator free.
my friend is really active & runs a lot and it's worked great for her.
