Post-Baby Cup Help!

I recently had my first baby and am having problems with my cup staying in place. In spite of breastfeeding full-time, I had my first menstrual cycle at 6 weeks post-partum. I didn't use my cup for that cycle but am using it for the first time during this cycle, approximately 11 weeks post-partum. I have the larger size Lunette cup. Prior to pregnancy, I was using the c-fold and generally had no leaks or problems with the cup staying in place. Since using my cup for the first time post-partum, it seems to be continually sliding down and not staying in place. I haven't had any major leaks because I am often taking it out and trying to reposition it. I have had to cut the entire stem off of the cup. I am fairly certain the cup has a good seal because I am able to sweep my finger around it. I am not sure if part of the problem is that my cervix seems lower than it did prior to giving birth. Anyway, I'm not sure if I need to try a different cup or just give it some time and work on kegals. Also, I would really appreciate if someone could send me the link to a comparison chart. I found this one online, but I'm not sure that it even has all of the cups on it:
