The Search for the Perfect Cup - Take Two

After using my Femmecup for four full periods, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not the right cup for me and that it’s time to try something new. My chief complaint is that I’m experiencing persistent leaking, which I think is due to the combination of using a narrow-bodied cup and having a low-hanging cervix.

I was able to reach the base of my Femmecup without much trouble, but this time around, I would like to get a cup that’s a couple of mm longer. That, combined with the fact that I want a hoop skirt shaped cup, makes the large Fleurcup and large Lunette the obvious front-runners. They are the same length and width, so I’m having some trouble deciding which one to get.

Here’s my question for all you lovely cup-users: based on the shape and estimated capacities of the large Fleurcup and large Lunette (29 ml and 27.5 ml to the air-holes respectively), which do you think would offer me the best capacity, taking into account the fact that my cervix usually sits pretty low in the cup for the first few days of my period? 

Update: Thanks for all your helpful comments! I thought about it some more and have decided to order a large Fleurcup. I think that the the shape, as well as the additional length, will help solve some of the problems that I’m having with my Femmecup. I’m really excited to give it a try and see if it works. Wish me luck :)
