Searching for a new, more comfy cup

Hey everyone,

I've been using my Mooncup UK, the smaller model, for almost 5 years now and it's a good improvement compared to tampons or pads.
The only thing I don't like about my cup is that it's somehow putting pressure on my bladder and I often think I have to pee and when I try, I don't have to. Also, sometimes I start to ignore this pressure because it is the whole time and then I realize that I have to pee when my bladder has gotten really full. Does anyone have similar issues?

I wonder if a softer cup would solve the problem for me. I'm thinking of buying a Small LadyCup or Medium Soft Meluna or Small Lunette since these are easy to get in Germany and I heard they are easier to clean than other cups. I really don't like cleaning the lettering in my Mooncup.

So I want to try out a new cup which is easy to clean, softer and has about the same length than my Mooncup UK, I can't get a longer cup since my vag is kind of short or my cervix is low. I was content with the capacity of my Mooncup, I think it got too full only once or twice in the entire time of using it.

Let me know what you think, please :) Any cup suggestions or tips for the urination probs?
