Troubling removing small LadyCup. Suggestions for removal or new similar cups?

Hello All! This is a wonderful community filled with so much great information. So glad I found it!

So I've been using a menstrual cup for about 6 months now and love it. I have a small LadyCup which has worked wonderfully, no problems with leaking. I guess I have a very light flow which was news to me. Anyway, although I love this cup I have one major issue with it. I struggle to get it out every time I have to empty it. I did trim the steam a bit because it was irritating me slightly. I don't think this is the problem since it is more about the texture of the cup that makes my fingers slip off of it. I can never seem to get a good grip on those tiny bumps that are suppose to help with removal. So, does anyone have any good tricks to get this thing out? Are there any cups with a similar size, shape, and firmness of the LadyCup but maybe with a better texture for gripping?
Thanks so much!
