High Capacity Short Cups?

Cross posted in part from vaginapagina.

I suspect this is sort of a pipe dream, but since my menstrual flow just pushed my cup (small Yuuki) out of my vagina in under an hour today, it's at least worth asking. (There is nothing quite like needing to dash out of class because you fear your bloody menstrual cup falling out of your pants and into your shoe.)

Does anyone know of of a menstrual cup that is no longer than a Mooncup UK (~50mm sans stem) but that has a higher functional capacity than a small Yuuki (roughly 26-27mL of what I can actually put in it before it starts leaking)? I've checked various length and capacity charts, but I'm just wondering -- or wishfully thinking, is more like it -- if there's something I could be missing.

My other thought is, since the Lady Cup is pretty squishy and has a relatively untextured base, would a large size there be doable even though it's longer than my MCUK? My current Yuuki isn't much shorter than the MCUK, but it's significantly more comfortable when it's inserted. I'm guessing that Yuuki's less stiff construction is at least partially the cause of this. Since the Lady Cup is even squishier (and smoother at the base, which probably can't hurt), I'm wondering if going longer than what I know is comfortable for me would be worth it for the increased capacity.
