Need to change from small mooncup to a bigger cup... but which one?

Hi all! I've been using a small mooncup uk on and off for the past year or so and I love not having to wear pads anymore. The problem is I think it's too small for me, as my period is quite heavy and every month, in the days of heavy flow, my cup starts leaking after just 2-3 hours (and at night too), but I don't always have the chance to empty it so frequently and I end up wearing a pad together with it to avoid stains. I reached the conclusion it would be best to try a bigger cup, maybe a bit softer as I feel my cup is a bit stiff, especially the rim, during removal and the stem too (I cut most of it off, but sometimes I can feel it). I think both the capacity and the diameter of my cup are too small, as I feel it doesn't adhere so well to my internal wall. I am 31 years old btw.
Surfing around the community I'm inclined for a Meluna size L, it seems bigger than my mooncup and also softer? Also which stem is better? Anyone more experienced than me can give me some advice on which cup would be best?
I hope it's okay to post my questions here, I've been surfing around the net and comparing cups for weeks, but I'm still not sure which cup to pick!
