Hello All,
I'm another lurker on the community. From the posts already written, I decided to buy a small Lunette Selene and a small Yuuki a couple of months ago. I have been alternating between them. I love cups!

However, I think I need a slightly longer cup. From what I've read on here, I think that my cup is riding up, and my cervix is sitting in it and decreasing the capacity. I definitely want a cup with larger capacity. I'm not quite sure how much longer of a cup I need. Right now, my Lunette rides up so that the base of the cup is about 1 cm from the entrance of my vagina.
I'm a virgin and under 25, which is the common threshold to be over for larger cups.
I do know that I want a softer cup. I'm looking at either a Large CupLee, a Large Fleurcup, a Naturcup, a Rubycup, or a large MeLuna soft but I will take any suggestions. I'm kind of confused about what to get. I'm overwhelmed by all the choices, but at the same time glad that there are so many to choose from.
I know that I need more info to give you guys, but I can't think of what else to put. I will definitely answer any questions.

Check out NaturalMamma. It's a long, narrower, and from what I've heard, soft-ish cup. I just ordered one a few days ago from Menstrualcup.co. I needed something long too. You can see a few reviews on this forum, if you look under "alphabetical tag list". There's photos on some of them, which I found super helpful.
I am a new cup user too, and I have a large Fleur cup. I am happy with it in general, the length is pretty good, and I love the softness of it. But I'm not sure if it is a tad too wide for me, and wondering if there is something that would work even better with my body. So that's why I'm going to try out that Natural Mamma. It's really not expensive, either!
BTW I also received a L and XL Meluna a few days ago, but have not tried them out yet. The Large is narrower and shorter than a Large Fleurcup. The XL is a tad wider, and a TAD longer than a Large Fleurcup.

I <3 my Cuplee ! Let me just say that 1 cm from your entrance isn't a lot of riding up, so perhaps avoid the top longest cups? See the charts : http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ Another factor to consider is shape : your current cups have a tappered base, which is nice for a more gradual removal process, but compromises capacity, that's why large bell-shaped cups such as large Fleurcup offer more capacity. I can also recommend the large Si-bell & Mamicup, which should both be softer thant the Fleurcup (or at least the Si-bell is), with a similar shape.

I just bought a CupLee and am very happy with it so far (dry run only). It is a very soft, smooth cup with enough firmness of rim to open without a fuss. A little wider in diameter, but I actually find it more comfortable than the Lunette, which has more of a bell shape and firmer silicone. Have you seen the many comparison photos here? http://menstrualcups.friendhood.net/f52-moderator-s-photo-library

I did look at the photos there. I have my Lunette stem cut so that the total length of the Lunette with the stem is a little longer than the CupLee without the stem.

If you're saying you want something longer than a Cuplee... how about a Gaia ? It's the same length as a Diva, with more capacity, and fairly soft according to Teresa @femininewear. Or a natural mamma.
