switching cups for financial reasons?

Here goes. Im thinking of switching cups simply for financial reasons, but im scared. Thing is i lost my Diva size 2 cup last month while on vacation... didnt realize it till now that ive started my period but thats a whole nother gripe that ive already vented. But the thing is, hubby lost his job just after vacation too (in a nutshell, found out boss was dealing drugs, didnt go back to work) so though i really need and want to replace my cup, looking at a 40 dollar diva is feeling selfish to me, when there are other cups out there that arent as expensive. Especially when i found the starter set two for one Melunas for just 26 bucks plus 9 shipping and handling.. not trying to buy here just wondering if the xl or L meluna is going to be similar enough to my beloved Diva to suit me? Diva is the only cup ive ever had, picked it up online maybe a year and a half ago? With advice from you guys if i recall, but back then i guess it was cheaper... im also having a SLIGHT issue with the rim strenth on my diva, i have to remove it to drain all my urine when i have to pee, i suspect lack of drainage may have led to a severe bout of UTI's and kidney stones recently, plus.. ehem, hubby says the cup stretches me out a bit... weird since ive given birth five times without any complaints in that department, but anyway was thinking maybe a soft meluna might be less of an issue for both matters? Any hints, tips, advice? Suck it up and buy the diva? Something else im missing altogether? Oh and i have seriously major flow, so something smaller wont do, i fill the diva once every two hours on my hardest flow days, and im talking FILL, so high capacity is a must... im hating on the instead im having to use.. instead for now heh. so messy, bleh. Oh and so much missing the cramp reducing qualities of my diva... so also looking for recommendations on places with superfast shipping.. Thank you ladies so so much!! You all convinced me to start on this journey and i will never, never, NEVER go back to tampons and pads again, let me tell you that.
