A question about leakage

So, this is my third cycle using my MeLuna mini, and I'm still very pleased with it. I'm currently at the heaviest point of my flow, and I'm experiencing some minor leakage. How much leakage is normal? What I'm having is easily caught by a pantyliner, but I'm just curious about whether there might be something I could do differently to reduce it.

It's definitely not overflowing; it's less than half full when I take it out to check it. I'm making sure that it unfolds fully once I insert it... I have a low cervix, but I'm pretty sure the cup's not positioned too high.

It's not really a big deal; I'm just curious because I'd love to avoid pantyliners if at all possible.
