Oh No: Overnight Capacity issues!!

Well I love my DivaCup but last night it failed me: I emptied it about 11:30 pm, it was full as usual. This is night three on my cycle and usually the night where I have to get up at least twice to change super plus tampons or destroy my sheets. I got up about 5 am and I had leaked everywhere. I emptied it again and it was overflowing!

Yes I know I have a HEAVY flow and all but it works wonderfully during the day! My husband says I do not move around a lot at night and I always seem to wake up in the same position I fall asleep in. I sleep naked  due to night sweats and do not want to wear pads to bed because they bunch up and chafe me. 

Is there any cup I can buy in the US with a super high capacity? It looks to me on the charts that my Diva #2 is one of the highest yet I overflowed!
