menstrual cup size question

Hi, I'm Jordan and I'm new. I've never used a menstrual cup before and I'm thinking about getting one to use when I'm not using cloth pads, but I'm worried any cup I buy might be too big for my anatomy and would be painful/uncomfortable because my vagina's pretty small/tight - partly it's just how my body is, but also it's from taking testosterone and not menstruating for ~6 3/4yrs (i'm trans*), and never having given birth... so it might change somewhat since I'm planning to go off of testosterone soon-ish probably, and I could very well start having menstrual cycles again within a month or so after that. I just don't know if the small menstrual cups will be small enough. Also when I was still having periods, I had a lot of bad cramping and a heavy flow the first 3 or 4 days so hopefully that won't push the cup out.
Any advice / suggestions for which cup to get, and which is the smallest? It's hard to tell the difference between the different brands of cups other than material and color sometimes and the price.
