Larger meluna w ring or maybe large yuuki ?

I have now been a somewhat happy user of my medium Meluna with regular stem for 3 full periods and I have tried to read and learn from both this and some other sites. I know I will have to be patient but I have already concluded some things about me and my use of a menstrual cup. For starters info on me : 32 year old , 1 child vaginal birth 10 years ago, normal to none sexual activity, no birthcontrol whatsoever, ..if any info for answering is missing, feel free to ask :)

When I bought my meluna medium they included a free sample small meluna no-stem. I tried it a couple of time but it is simply too small and almost impossible for me to get hold of again - too much struggle and too little capacity. So I was better of with my medium meluna , easier to grip at most times.  This means I can totally rule out ever getting anything without a stem as it most days will travel too much up for reaching in  comfortable way.

On other days like so many of you wrote my cervix will be pretty low and also filling the meluna up - this means no room for the blood . This again means that I can never use a small of any brand , I would have to use atleast medium.

After these conslusions this leads me to my questions conserning my next cup buy :
I want to go for a larger this time , I think meluna is a safe bet for me so I would try a meluna ring stem , as it's suppose to be an even better grip -  can someone who has tried normal stem vs ring stem confirm this for me ??

Also I would like to know how the experience is for other women who have tried one  ANY brand medium and then changed to yuuki large ? I can see it is the largest on the market - my concerns are on if it is worth getting when I'm focusing on the suction, travelling and low cervix (inside the cup) issues I have.
with the large yuuki it would ofcourse be a "normal" stem ..I wonder how firm the grip is on these .. just extra security for me :)
