Switching Brands from Diva to something else

I am thinking of switching from a Diva Cup to another brand.

My specific issue with the Diva is that I can't get it to open all the way and get it to suction.  I have to try five to ten times and then I either have accomplished my goal or I give up and use a tampon.  This is normally not an issue, but now as I begin my student teaching, I can't carry on this long every time I need to change it (which is about every four to five hours so I have to do it at school).  

I have had it for four months, and while I understand there is a learning curve, I figure to try another brand can't HURT esp since I am looking for a spare in case the unthinkable happens and I lose mine.  And who knows, the new one could work perfectly?

In any event, I am looking at pictures and it looks like the Lunette and Diva are mostly the same shape.  If I have this problem with the Diva, will I have it with the Lunette?  Has anyone made this switch successfully?

The only other switch I can think of is to a Mooncup UK, because people in my situation have had success with that brand.  But they hold significantly less, so I am wary.
