Thinking about a smaller cup....but what?

OK, sorry, long post/explanation.  I'm a babbler.

I bought a large LadyCup ( the colours) in December.  I am pretty happy with it, and got the hang of it eventually - struggling with the learning curve while travelling abroad probably isn't the easiest way to do it.

I think the LadyCup *may* be a bit too big for me on my two low cervix daysas I can feel a little discomfort during those days -  all other days it feels great.  The two lowe-cervix days are my crampiest of days, and the cup seems to amplify the cramps a bit.  So I was thinking a smaller cup might be a way to go, but which one??

What Iike about my LadyCup is:
- the squishiness.  It's ultra comfy and easily unfolds (from my 7 fold) without an owie pop or snap.
- colours!
- the capacity is great for me.  After reading many posts, I seem to be a very light flow, as on my heavy days I may need to empty the cup every 8 hours or so, and that's due to cervix taking up room rather than way more flow.  Other days I can leave it in for 12-15hrs easy (barely half full), which helps when on long road trips through Brazil!

Now, I was thinking a small Lunette due to the capacity being the same as the large Lady, but physical size is smaller.  Does it's squishiness make it behave similar to the LadyCup when opening up, folding etc?

Also, another factor, I'm still currently travelling abroad.  I am currently staying in Natal, Brazil for about 7 weeks, but I'm not sure about things getting delivered to me, if I have a postal address or not :-S  Does anyone know of any stockists in the area perhaps??  And what cup brands are stocked?

Or, would it be best to put up with the two days of discomfort with the LadyCup and get my second cup when I get back home - which is in November.

Thanks guys!
