Leaky Cup

I'm having issues with my Diva Cup leaking. The one I'm using now is actually a replacement for my first Diva Cup, which I lost. The first Diva Cup worked perfectly fine. I never had any issues with it beyond the "orientation period." Once I got used to inserting it, it never leaked.
Now, for whatever reason this cup just will not stop leaking. I've gone from changing my Diva Cup 2-3 times daily to about 5-6 times daily. I've always worn a backup liner with my Diva Cup, but rarely ever had to change it until the end of the day. Now I'm changing it about 3 times daily due to leaks.

I really don't know what I'm doing wrong. It's the same size, and AFAIK I'm not doing anything different while inserting. All I know is that it leaks constantly and it's driving me batty.

Can anyone give me some tips/insights onto how what might be causing this or how to fix it?
