Why is removing my keeper mooncup so much harder than my other cups?

I've used (and removed) a small divacup, large lunette, and a large fleurcup all without problem and I've used cups for a few years now, so I'm not new to removing cups.I never read the instructions on removing the divacup when I got it (I know, I know...) so I removed it by positioning my thumb and middle finger on the base, moving my thumb about halfway up then doing a kegal to sort of fold it up to a lose c fold to break suction. This has worked with all the cups but the mooncup! I can't kegal it into a fold I guess where the rim is so thick. I tried the "pinch and tilt" it out like you are supposed to, but I just can't break the suction. After some wrestling I finally got the cup out. What is the secret to the pinch and tilt to remove the cup?
