making a purchase decision

I have been using a Diva (smaller size) for about two years now and I still from time to time have some frustration getting it to pop open. (I know this isn't true for everyone, but if it doesn't pop open for me, I leak.)  I have tried all the different kinds of folds, as well as all the different folds inside out, but it just doesn't seem to work consistently, and is getting more difficult with time rather than easier.  It's also a bit longer than I'd prefer. I can't seem to decide between the Lunette and the Mooncup UK.

My question for the comm:  Which is easier to pop open, the Lunette or Mooncup UK?  Also, I know the sizing charts are roughly sized, but I am 24, nulliparous, and the width of the small Diva has always been comfortable for me.  Am I best off with the smaller size of either of those cups as well?


ETA:  I decided on a Mooncup UK because it was a good amount cheaper and because I couldn't decide on a Lunette size.  Thanks, everyone, for the feedback.  I really have tried every popping-open trick and fold everyone has mentioned on this comm - I just don't think the Diva is the cup for me.  Will be back with a comparison when it comes in!
