firmness of nondefective ladycups?

I just received my OrangeCup, ordered from the ebay store. I expected the entire cup to be much squishier than my US Moon Cup, but the rim and the area below the rim is surprisingly not as squishy as I thought it would be. It's not what I'd call rigid, and it's definitely squishier than the Moon Cup, but there's a distinct difference between the bottom of the cup and the area where the holes start towards the top. This may sound funny, but it reminds me of a block of cheese where the edge has gotten a little harder than the middle. 

I read in a previous post about some of the defective colored cups having a firmer rim than the nondefective ones, and I'm wondering how you ladies with the nondefective ladycups would describe the rim in comparison to the rest of the cup. Is it a uniform squishiness from base to rim on a nondefective ladycup?
