How hard was it for you to find your cup?

Hi all,

I'm curious about how much trouble people generally go through to find a cup that works for them. I guess the basic question I'm trying to get at is, how likely is it for a person to have the first cup they try work well enough to keep on using it? Or how likely is it that a person will have to go through multiple cups before they find something useable? I'm hoping most people find one that's at least useable on their first try.

Edit: Thank you all so much! I've had people ask me how hard it is to find one that works, and this is immensely helpful. Personally, I've had two cups, both of which have worked great.
