Looking for my Goldilocks cup

Hello everyone,
I'm new to this site, but I was hoping I could get some advice about which second cup to purchase. I've looked around and I still can't decide which cup to get! So many options and choices!

This community is great and I have looked through a ton of the posts over the past couple months. Thanks for all the info and help!

I am a 23 year old who is sexually active and has had no children.
I finally got past the learning curve with my size 1 Diva cup, after probably like 6 or seven cycles of frustration and leaks.

Diva's length doesn't bother me, though my stem is trimmed off and I can still pinch the bottom of the cup. I never fill my cup up more than 3/4, even on my heaviest days. I am looking for something softer.
Considering Ladycup or Cuplee because of their softness.
Anyone have any input? Thanks for reading!! :D

Help!

I'm new, I have been looking around for a while trying to find an answer to my problem but so far nothing has worked. I bought a Lunette cup several months ago and have been trying every month to get it to work. I've tried it during my period and tried it when not on my period and I have yet to get it inserted completely. When it pops open, it hurts and I cannot get it in all the way. That is when I'm successful in getting it in even that much (that much being the rim). I'm 26, I am not a virgin, I have used tampons very successfully for years and I am so irritated about not being able to get my cup in. When it is folded for insertion it isn't even that much bigger than a tampon and a lot smaller than other things as well so I just don't get why it is so hard for me to use it. If anybody has any tricks or tips to give me that would be great because I'm at the point now where I am just about to give up.
