Large or small?

I have just discovered menstrual cups! I am planning to buy one before I leave for college next week. Having read all the online advice and reviews, the Fleurcup seems to be my thing re: shape, color and price.

My only concerns are about capacity and leaking. I have a small build (5ft), am 18 years old and haven't had penetrative sex, so I'm planning to get a small Fleurcup. However, I have a medium-heavy flow and would ideally like to be able to wear a cup for a whole day straight. Does anyone know whether the small cup (diameter 41mm) would last me the whole day?

I am also worried about leaking... Dreading it! I have a fairly low-hanging cervix (appr. 43mm in with a finger) so a shorter cup is ideal, even though I also want good capacity... As you can see I'm thoroughly confused! Any advice or pointers would be great. I'll need have made my decision by the end of the day. :)

Edit: Omg, thank you for all your generous advice, I'm very grateful! I've decided to get a small Fleurcup with the thought in mind that it's my first cup and in the years to come I will probably buy others. Thank you again for all your help! ♥
