first timer + melunas = circus act? help!

You're looking at the proud owner of two gorgeous Melunas--a soft and a classic. I tried them out for at least 2 hours today, and must seek refuge at this community.

Each of these are giving me trouble in different ways. The classic just won't get in there. Though it's a size smaller, its folds are larger because it's not as flexible. The soft just won't open up once it's in there, and I was told this would happen. I got it in, but not without misbehaving.

First time: I wore it for an hour, and there was regular discomfort. When removing it, I found out it hadn't unfolded. Ding! Better luck next time.

Second time: Wore it for ten minutes, felt better, though very raw from trying insertions. But I couldn't tell if it was open. How can you tell if it's popped open? When I inserted my finger to check, I couldn't tell what was going on in there. It doesn't help my finger won't fit!

Are there any preferred ways of folding for the Melunas classic and soft? I'd like to have one of these in comfortably by the end of the week. My hands will get arthritis by then. ^_-
