Need help choosing my first cup

I apologize in advance if this question has been asked before. But I really need some help.

I just recently heard about menstrual cups, and am really excited to try one. I've grown to hate tampons more and more, and this seems like the answer. I'm just completely lost on what to order. I don't know what most of the terminology means, whether I need a long or short cup, soft or firm. Here are the details about myself.

I'm really small--4'11 and 100 lbs. I'm 25, and have had one vaginal birth (11 months ago) . I don't have a very heavy period. My flow is moderate for 2-3 days, and light for the remainder. I'll probably use the cup for the first 2 days, and mama cloth the rest of the time depending.

Any help or steering in the right direction would be so appreciated. Pretty much the only cup I'm semi-familiar with is Diva Cup, but not sure if that's the right one for me.
