Can someone help: Yuuki cup comparison old vs. new versions

Hey everyone,
I've been using a large Yuuki cup successfully for the past 9 years now, always been very happy with it, but the silicone is starting to degrade (or something...?) so I need to get a new one.
Wanted to get the same one again (I want a big capacity cup) but obviously they changed the firmness of the Yuuki cups/expanded their selection.

Does anyone on here, by any chance, happen to know how their old model compares to the soft and classic versions ones that are available nowadays?

I am open to suggestions of course, just know this/some additional info:

- I also tried a large Lunette back then, which didn't work for me, its stiffness caused it to 'dislocate' and leak when I did certain movements, the large Yuuki, which was softer, solved that problem back then, so I don't think I'd be happy with the new, firm, Yuuki that is available nowadays.

- I recently had the chance to try the large Ladycup and the large libimed cup. Both were a nightmare to get out, because when I squeezed the bottom of those cups, their rims would not collapse. And keep in mind that I'm an experienced cup user who has inserted and removed large (old) Yuuki, small and large Lunette all three successfully on first try and never struggled with it. But now I am scared the new, soft Yuuki will be similar to the Lady and libimed cup :(.

So I guess I'm looking for a rather soft, high capacity cup, whose rim collapses nicely when I squeeze the bottom, despite its softness

Sorry this got so long.
I'd be very grateful if someone could offer me some input :)

Low cervix + upside down acrobatics

Hi all!

I would like to ask if anyone else has similar problems than I do. I have used my Lunette 1 and 2 (nowadays only the size 1) for 7 years now and been having the same problem for a while now. My cervix is extremely low and it takes about half of the space of the cup. When I'm on my period, my cervix is right there when I put my finger inside. If I squat all the way down, the cervix almost comes out. My vaginal opening gets pretty sore because the cup keeps it a bit open and the tip scratches the lips sometimes. I also have to empty it pretty often because there isn't that much room for blood.

I've recently read about Merula and Femmycycle (low-cervix or teen) and other shorter cups and will most definitely try either one of the mentioned, propably Meruna because it's easier to get.

Another thing that I would really need help for, is how to solve the problem of going upside down while wearing a cup on my period. I do handstands, acroyoga and partner acrobatics and I have to use a tampon on those days, because the cup leaks. I am an experienced user with my Lunette so it's not possible it isn't put there properly. I also empty it right before I train. In every position with a possibility for vagina farts, there is also a possibility for blood catastrophe after I come back to standing. I don't now if it is the vaginal muscles that push the cup to fold or what happens, but all the blood runs out and I'm in trouble. Has anyone found a solution (cup) for this problem?

Otherwise I've had no problems with cups. Sometimes it feels like I had to pee but that's not a big problem. I am quite sensitive but it's been alright with Lunette even though it's quite firm.
