First Cup for My Sister

I have a DivaCup, and I love it. I just recently got to use it on my period (today's the first day!). I cut off the stem completely and inserted it when I had a little spotting last night, and when I woke up, I had a full cup. No leaks, though my feminine moisture (whatever you call it) bypasses the cup like it's not even there. I thought it was a leak, but it was just, you know, the clear stuff. Anywho, I've been thinking about getting my 13 year old sister her first cup. She hasn't started her period yet, but I wanted her to have a cup ready as an option. She knows all about cups, but isn't sure which one she wants. I've heard that just about every cup is good for beginners. I'm leaning towards LadyCup/ColoredCup, or even the Femmcup. What do you ladies think? I think I'll do a poll for this one, but comments are welcomed lots!

Poll #1360883 Beginner's Cup Poll

What cup do you think would be best for a first-time cup user?

DivaCup
17(14.7%)
Femmecup
2(1.7%)
Lady Cup/Colored Lady Cup
34(29.3%)
Lunette
49(42.2%)
MPowerCup
3(2.6%)
Unfortunately, the Mooncup is no longer available in the U.S., and I don't feel like Houdini-ing one out here, and Keepers and Moon Cups aren't an option. Grrr.
