Need some opinions

Really, I think I've decided already but I need someone behind me saying "yes, excellent idea!"  And since you all know more about cups than anyone else, I turn to you...

I'm currently finishing up my second cycle with my Lunette.  I have the larger one, being 26 years old, but I've noticed that I have a REALLY light flow - about 2 days of not even getting 1/4 full (after emptying 12 hours) and then 2 or 3 more days of spotting, it seems.  I don't have problems inserting or removing, but after the heavy days are over, I can tell it's there and it bothers me.  Like, I'll be lying in bed and I can feel it, so much so that I'm tempted to take it out. 
I wonder if I would do better with a smaller cup... I feel like I would notice it less, which would make me want to use it on my light days (as it stands, I'm tempted to go to cloth pads on my light days since this sensation of feeling it inside really bothers me).  I'm thinking of getting the small LadyCup (or rather, the pinkcup since I love pink)... and either keep the Lunette for the first day or 2, or just be prepared to possibly empty more with the LadyCup my first few days.

Does that make sense?  I'm worried that the LadyCup will be TOO small and might get lost/not form a good seal, but that's not possible, right?  I mean, does anyone else have that "I can feel it inside me and it's driving me crazy" feeling?  Do you think it means I need a smaller cup?

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it!
