Which size/ brand is right for me?

Hi everyone! Thanks for all of the helpful advice!

I have decided that I am going to try a different menstrual cup (I currently have a Mooncup UK) because of the leaking problem that I cannot seem to fix with my MCUK. I have a low cervix so I was wondering which brand/size would be probably be best?? (I am a teenager and a virgin. My flow can be quite heavy on a couple days.) I really want to try a new brand because the Mooncup ALWAYS leaks. I find blood all around the outside of the cup when I remove it as well as some inside of it too (but not ever full.) Not sure if this helps but tampons would always leak when I used them too, even when they weren't holding very much blood. This is the main reason I switched to trying menstrual cups.  I have tried doing all of the techniques to make sure the cup pops open completely, and it seems to be in correctly when I first insert it. Maybe it's not wide enough? I'm not sure, but maybe the cup is too long because my cervix is low??? 

I've been considering getting a MeLuna but I don't know if that would be any better. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thank you!!!
