Trying to Decide

Hi all.  I just recently discovered menstrual cups and would like to try one but I am having a hard time deciding which one.  I've looked at a lot of the reviews and comparisons but I'm still feeling a little lost.  My biggest questions are:

* What features should I be most concerned with?  blaze5155 has a great comparison in the memories section but I am not sure how to sort out which features are most important... should I care more that it's "squishy" or easy to open or holds more or what?

* Apart from the recommendations of each brand, is there a good way to sort out what size to look at?  I'm thinking I'll probably go with the smaller size of whatever I get, since I have not had children yet.  But the small sizes of different brands are not all equal.

My tentative plan is to get a DivaCup, since I can get that without ordering it online, and hopefully that works.  But I'm a litlte hesitant based on some of the comments I've seen here.  I guess if it doesn't work at least it gives me a starting point to make adjustments from.  I'd be interested in hearing how others made their choice though and what was most helpful to them in deciding.
