Looking for a new cup...not sure if what I want exists!

Hi everyone,
I currently use a small Diva and I really, really like it. However, there are 2 caveats:

1. It doesn't pop open as easily as I'd like - sometimes I have to try 2, 3 or more times and use the cold water trick before it will pop.

2. I'd like for it to have more capacity (although this is not as important to me as the first item - if I could have a cup that popped open easily, I'd be happy to empty it a bit more often, say every 3-4 hours - right now I have to empty my Diva every 4-6 on my heavy days).

Also, I'd prefer a cup that is not "fat." I have a large Lunette Selene, but it is a bit wide for me. I think it's the overall body of the cup that is too wide, not the rim. My small Diva has more of the narrow-bodied shape, imo, even though it's officially classified as hoopskirt.

Any suggestions for a cup I should try?
