Time for a New Cup

So, I've had my (small) Diva for about fifteen months now. I absolutely love it (no questions there), but I think it's time for me to try a new cup. I find that the Diva can be a little on the long side (only sometimes, but whenever my cervix is low enough that it is too long, it's extremely annoying). I don't have issues with it popping, but, well, that's because I pretty much use my fingers to guide it into place. My Diva does work, but I also just want to try something new. I've thought about it for a while, and my criteria would be:

1) It has to have a capacity close to or surpassing the Diva.
2) It would be nice if it popped open without much work. Sometimes the Diva can be exasperating.
3) I like enough suction to make sure it stays in place (something I occasionally had trouble with when it comes to the Diva).
4) It'd be good if it were shorter than the Diva, because as I said, sometimes the Diva feels too long.

Based on this, I was considering the small Lunette. I'm twenty, never had children. Actually, I was thinking of the Lunette Selene (from the Leastore). What cup do you think would work best for me, and what do you all think of the Selene in general? Does the small Lunette hold as much as the Diva does?

I decided to go with the large Lunette Selene after a lot of thought. I feel that because it's shorter lengthwise than the Diva, but will hold more, it will be the best one for me. I did purchase it from Leastore so that in the event that it doesn't work for me, I can send it back and get the small Lunette (or another cup) instead. Thanks for the helpful comments, everyone.
