Having Leaking Issues and Needing Bigger Capcity For Some Days

Hey, I've been using menstrual cups for 7 years or so now. Started with the Diva and only last year did I learn (from this community) that I have a low cervix and switched to better ones for me. I currently have 2 large Lunettes, 1 large old style soft Meluna, and 2 classic medium Melunas. I didn't have an issues at first with the Lunettes at first with leaks (which is my cup of choice for ease of use), but now I am. I leak the worst at night, and the cup will not even be close to full. I'm sure that it is popping open, and that my cervix is sitting inside. I've tried flipping them inside out and that seems to work well, but I fill them too fast on my heavy days. I prefer to use the Meluna, because I seem to leak less with that but I have such a darned time trying to get that soft cup in. I will literally try to get the Meluna in for 10 minutes before I just give up and use a Lunette. I use the cold water trip where you run it under cool water to harden the material, different folds, and I cannot get it to pop open for the life of me.

I know that Meluna just recently added a new grade in the cups which is the 'sport'. Has anyone tried these? I was also thinking about getting an XL sport or a large sport, and then using my Lunette inside out on my lighter days. I don't bother with the mediums much, because I bleed too much to make much use of them usually. Anyone else have issues with soft cups or experience with any of the Meluna's 'sport'? Thank you :)
