I've been using my DivaCup since September, so it's been about seven months, read about my past experience here.  The statistics show that 91% of women who try DivaCup never go back to using pads and tampons and I can say that is true from first hand experience! I got my period on my trip to Croatia in the fall and it was so great just to pop one of these babies in in the morning before we headed out for the day and forget about having a period at all until I took it out at the end of the night. 

Everyone should be talking about it! I am all about talking about everything candidly in life and periods are no exception! Besides pads and tampons are just so gross and cause so much yucky waste. I was always having to wrap my tampons up in toilet paper so that my boyfriend didn't have to look at them in the waste basket. YUCK!


I purchased Model 1 since I have never given birth either vaginally or by C-section. Model 2 is available for women who have given birth.

How to Plan your Travel Outfits while You're on your Period

Luckily, with DivaCup, you don't have to worry about the kind of clothing that you can wear during your trips. You can literally wear ANYTHING, tiny bikinis, little dresses, whatever! I am currently in Fiji and wearing whatever my heart desires!

The only thing that DivaCup can't help with is the inevitably bloating that occurs during my period. Here are the top 3 things that I pack to look good while traveling with some period bloating


1. High Waisted Bikinis

High waisted bikinis are super in style at the moment and I love them! They are great for hiding any extra belly bloat.

2. Loose Dresses, Rompers and Skirts

Not only do flowy loose dresses, rompers and skirts look great in the tropical island wind, they hide any extra fullness that you may feel during your period

3. Kimonos Wraps

Kimonos type tops and wraps, long and short make your body look great and modest under any circumstances!
