New to Menstrual Cups, Lunette vs. Meluna

Hello Everyone! 

I'm new to this community and menstrual cups. Before today, I had never heard of menstrual cups. At first, I was completely grossed out, but now I am sold and excited! I love the fact that it is reusbale to help reduce waste and I'm sure it will help me get more in touch with body. During my research, I found this site to be by far the most helpful! It saved me from certain agony if I had bought the first cup I found, the diva, since I discovered through here that it would not work well with my body. I have looked at the measurement and soft/hardness charts as well as a quiz that member foggyimage posted. I came to realize that my vagina is considered short, as I was able to reach my cervix to my 2nd knuckle on my middle finger (about 5.5cm). I am 24 years old, not a virgin, and have not had a child. Despite being a virgin, my vagina is pretty tight. It is always difficult at first having sex until my vagina gets stretched out. I'm not sure if this is because I'm naturally small and my husband is rather large. As a result of my body type, I decided the best cups would be ones that were shorter and narrower. Based on the suggestions of cups from foggyimage's quiz, I am deciding between a Small Lunette, Small Meluna Classic, or a Small Meluna Soft. I decided on these because I liked how they had ridges on the bottom of the cup to help with grasping during removal. I know these three range in softness levels, which is my biggest obstacle right now in choosing. I also have some incontinent issues, which I guess means my pelvic muscles are very weak. I'm not quite sure, which softness or hardness level would be best for someone with weak pelvic muscles, but a tight vagina. I'm not sure if it is even possible to have both! I should also note, that capacity is not a big issue for me. I have a pretty light period due to being on birth control pills. I change out a regular tampon about every 6-8 hours. I would greatly appreciate if anyone that uses these three cups or anyone with similar body type/issues could offer their experiences and advice on what cup they have found to work the best. Thank you! :) I look forward to hearing from you all and the continual learning on mentstrual cups!
