Is there a cup similar to Diva 2 in material and softness but shorter length?

I've used a Diva 2 for about 5-6 months (38, 1 child). I LOVE using a cup,  except the Diva feels  too long. I ONLY use it INSIDE OUT - the right side out is way too long and sticks out (cut stem off).  It works pretty good inside out, but it seems my cervix is so low  that I have almost pushed it out at times while walking or hiking. I have to then take it out and put it back in to re-seat. After a post on this forum, I thought it was from weak vaginal walls, however I do not think that is the problem. I measured my cervix position with my finger and it is shorter by approx 1/4" than the length of my cup inside out.

I have spent hours searching this forum and keep scratching my head as to what to get. I just purchased a Large Lunette from a nice gal off this forum. Funny thing is, I rec'd it today and didn't realize it would be slightly LONGER than the Diva 2 turned INSIDE OUT. Forgot about that when I was checking measurements. I just finished my flow so haven't even tried the Lunette yet, but knowing the Diva is too long, I don't think it will be much different. Plus it is stiffer than my diva. I already 'feel' my diva inside at times, so I don't think I want anything stiffer.

I'm looking for something just like the Diva - silicone, soft & squishy - yet shorter than about 52. My flow is apparently not very heavy as I can keep the Diva2 in for 6+ hrs on my heavy days, so it seems I could use a smaller capacity cup.  I can't seem to figure out what cup would be like this after hours on here.
Here's what I've deduced so far with the shorter cups:

MeLuna MED 45x45 - sounds too firm for me. I also would rather silicone than TPE.
Lunette SMALL 41x47 -  not sure if it would work after giving birth and being 'stretched out'?
MooncupUK Small  43x50  -- not sure 2mm would be noticeable given my cup is 1/4" too long.
Femmecup 45x50 =  same as above?

Does anyone that has had a child vaginally and is over 35 use a SMALL Lunette or other small cup?

Any suggestions would be great appreciated!
