GladRags launches crowdfunded menstrual cup

by Tracy Puhl Just shy of a year after their successful Kickstarter campaign, Portland-based reusable period care brand, GladRags, introduces their new thoughtfully-designed menstrual cup, the XO Flo Mini, a smaller version of their widely popular XO Flo.

Using their 23+ years of industry experience and consumer research, GladRags introduced XO Flo in January 2017. XO Flo appealed to longtime cup users as well as people who are new to reusable menstrual products due its capacity, ease of use, and comfortable design. 

"This cup is FANTASTIC! I've been using cups for nearly 20 years and so far, this one is the most comfortable." - Happymama8, Wisconsin

"The new XO Flo has really worked out some of the biggest design flaws in most other cups. The stem is amazingly comfortable... The inner rim is genius." - dlk802, New York

XO Flo Mini is a perfect fit for young people or teens, those with a light flow, and those with a low cervix or sensitive bladder. Despite its small size, the XO Flo Mini has approximately double the capacity of a tampon and can be worn for up to 12 hours at a time. Made with medical grade silicone, XO Flo and XO Flo Mini won't over-absorb or over-dry like a tampon can, and won't leave fibers behind in the vaginal canal. XO Flo may be used for up to 10 years with proper usage and care.

XO Flo Mini is now available for purchase on its own or as part of a kit on and will be available through retail partners soon.
