Size Question

I've been using the Diva Cup since approximately 2008, and while I love it, I've always had some slight problems with leakage. Recently the stem of my cup ripped near clean off, so I'm looking into getting a replacement.

Does anyone have any experience in going to a Model 2 despite not being in the demographic? I'm 23 and have never given birth. I don't want to waste another 30 bucks if I'm still going to have the same issues - despite having the insertion method down, I experience consistent spotting, as well as the cup riding up (which is part of the reason the stem broke). Part of the reason I wanted to use a cup is to eliminate pads, and I currently still have to wear at least a pantyliner on the first few days of my period. Would sizing up even solve this, or will it just make insertion more difficult?

[Oh, and I have tried the Keeper, but liked it even less and ended up getting rid of it.]
