Lunette user with bladder/urination issues -- is there a better one out there for me?

Thanks to all you wonderful people and the wealth of information on this website, I was converted to cups about a year ago. After a lot of research I decided to go with the smaller Lunette. For the most part, except for some difficulties with insertion/removal during the first few cycles, using the cup has been awesome. I trimmed much of the stem down so that only a little nubbin is left, but even that pokes me sometime. However, since the beginning I've always struggled with the sensation of the cup pushing against my bladder. (To top it off, I got lazy and forgot to boil my Lunette last time after using it and yay, me, I got a yeast infection AND a UTI)... But I digress: the bladder sensation has definitely gotten a lot better with time, but after seeing how many of you experiment with multiple cups, I'm just wondering whether there's something better out there for me. Last year, I went with the Lunette because it seemed universally agreed upon that it is a relatively squishy cup, but now I am wondering whether the LadyCup might be even softer. I'm also wondering if I were to go with the LadyCup what size to get. The small Lunette has been great in terms of size, but i wouldn't mind a larger cup for heavier days, but If i have bladder issues with a cup, does that mean it's not a good idea to go up a size (e.g. more irritation?).

I really look forward to hearing what you all have to say. Thanks so much for any and all advice you may have!
