Problems with leaking.. do I need a wider cup???

I bought my first 2 cups - Meluna (M) & Meluna (L) and have tried both of them and I have trouble with them leaking. I can insert/take them out just fine, I'm completely comfortable wearing them, I can feel that they're open inside and I don't have problems with them sliding out. Would I need a WIDER cup so they don't leak? I really love the idea of these things but find it frustrating that I'm always worried about leaking... last night I woke up because I had leaked A LOT! This is my third day and I've gone a few stretches (up to 4 hours) without leaking.

Info about me:
-I'm 27, 5'7"
-Have had 3 vaginal births
-Sexually active

Any advice would be much appreciated!!

Which cup should I buy

I'm 15 years old In the 10th grade I started my period in the late 8th grade I'm almost never have my period around the time I'm suppsed to it varies from 3days-3months late
When I do get my period the first day is light the second day is my heaviest flow and it goes down and usually last 5 days
I want to get a mensrual cup because I don't have me period that often and when I do I don't want to ask my grandma to get me tampons (I live with my dad) I Also read that menstruAl cups can make your flow lighter
To round it all up it would be convenet
I don't really know which to use because I've heard that some brands are good for somepeople and not others and I don't really want to find out the hard way because my dads buying it
Things that could be good to know
I'm a Virgin so I've never given birth
I'm not on the pill
I'm 5"5
Ps I love a little color
