Our brand, Soch Green, was founded with the aim of providing safe, hygienic, and reusable period products to women. Our aim is to make reusable period products affordable for women, while also offering them the highest range of options in the period products’ market. Therefore, we offer the Soch Cup, the Soch Underwear, Soch cloth pads, and Soch labia pads. We are planning to introduce many more products so as to keep increasing the range of options for our happy customers!
The One-Size Fits All Debate
There has been a lot of debate in the world of reusable menstrual products, especially menstrual cups, about how one size could potentially fit all women, across ages, lifestyle choices. We believe that every woman is unique. Be it the cup or the cloth pad, we do not believe that one size fits all. Surely, one size MAY fit all, but we all know that it may not be the best fit for all. It may also make it easier for women to “choose” a product that has only one size, but what if the size happens to be the wrong one?
The argument for the one-size-fits-all debate comes from the interpretation most women have a medium cervix length. In other words, most women lie somewhere in the middle of the Bell Curve. But what if you lie in the extremes and not in the average range? And as of now, we do not even know how many women have a low cervix, how many have a medium cervix, and how many have a high cervix. The data around this is murky at best. This is the reasoning we offer all our Soch products in multiple sizes.
We want women to get up and close with their bodies and anatomy, find where their cervix lies and only then go for a cup accordingly. Sure, it may take some more time and effort, but better be safe than sorry. Now, every time we tell someone that we offer all our products in a variety of sizes, the first response is that they are overwhelmed with the choices available. We understand that for someone who is just about beginning to make the shift to eco-friendly period products, the number of choices may make it all the more overwhelming. But why worry when we are there to help you throughout your green period journey?
HOW THEN DO I CHOOSE MY SOCH GREEN PRODUCT SIZE?
We get asked this question multiple times a week and our answer remains the same. We have a ‘Take the Quiz’ option for almost every single product that we offer. Apart from starting her own range of menstrual hygiene products, our founder Priyanka has tried a variety of reusable menstrual products aka RUMPs, from across the world. Her continued interest and experience in the world of RUMPs has led to the building of these quizzes. Our quizzes are meticulous and take into account all the factors that play a role in deciding your size. Our criteria include childbearing history, lifestyle, medical conditions, as well as your period flow.
All you need to do is enter a few details and you’ll get a recommendation of which Soch product best suits your needs. Next to each of our quizzes, we also offer you helpful suggestions that may make you more confident about your choice.
What about the SochGreen Cup?
The SochGreen cup comes in two sizes; the design of the SochGreen cup is such that it fits women who have low-medium to a high cervix. Women with low-medium cervix can simply trim the stem of the cup, while women with a higher cervix can keep the stem intact. However, for women who have a very low cervix, we recommend SochUnderwear and SochPads.
WHAT IF I AM STILL CONFUSED?
Before you make that final choice, we recommend you read up as much as you can about our products. Also, nothing works better for cloth pads and period underwear sizes as just taking a measuring tape and measuring your size. Things like the width of the crotch, waist size, etc. are best measured with a measuring tape.
Of course, menstrual cups can be tricky in terms of having to choose a size, but we have the cervix-measuring rule that can help you make the choice. You can read more about it here.
If you are still confused, we have another solution for you. Just download the CallMe4 App, find PriyankaNJain@cm4, and call away. We will be happy to assist you in choosing the right size for all our Soch products.
Have a happy period!
