Cup/stem length question, high cervix

This is my first post (Hi everyone!) I'm really excited about getting a cup but all the information can get overwhelming, especially compared to the "one size" tampons I'm used to, so I want to make sure I've done all my research correctly before I make the big leap.

I'm 23, virgin, and currently toward the end of my cycle. I tried measuring my cervix twice this cycle during my heavier days and couldn't feel it at all, so I'm guessing it's pretty high up there. It's got to be at least 80mm since that's roughly how long my finger is and it has to be a little past that, haha.

So I was checking out the size charts and most of the lengths (cup + stem) seem to be about 60-70mm; would that be an issue for me since my cervix is so high? I figure the longer ones will be ok since the stem isn't supposed to be dangling out like a tampon string anyway, but I just don't want to have issues with removal.

It also seems that the bigger cups tend to be longer as well, and I don't really need a ton of capacity (25mL should last me for a fairly good while before I have to change it.)

Will I be ok going with a smaller cup even if it's a bit short? Does anybody have any brand recommendations for this type of issue?
