My First Cup

I recently came across a thread in forum about the DivaCup and decided to do a little more research. I'd heard about cups before, but at the time I hadn't even been using tampons and I thought it was something like a little cup that sat outside of your body and caught menstrual fluid XD. I almost rushed right out and bought a Diva last week but I waited and (thankfully) found a lot more information about the different brands thanks to you guys.

So here's what I want to know: I've narrowed my choice down to the Lunette (I really want the Selene) but I don't know which size to get. The length of the cup doesn't bother me, but what does concern me is the width. I'm a 20 year old virgin and I'm a little worried that the larger cup won't fit. On the other hand, I think that the larger cup's capacity better fits my cycle (My first two days I change a regular tampon about every three hours, and it gets lighter from days 3-5 where I change about once every five to six hours).

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Edit: Also, where is the best place to buy the lunette? I'm in the U.S.
