New to the possibility of cups

I'm 33 years old, but I have no children. I have been reading about the nasty things tampons can do to your body, like Toxic Shock. Apparently the way I wear a tampon is just asking for death because I have such a light flow I can get away with just 4 OB regular tampons my entire cycle. Buuuttt, I'm not supposed to wear them overnight or as long as it'd take them to full up. So I'd like to either switch to organic cotton ones or a cup. My gyno says that I have a pretty short vagina and tilted uterus (she comments on it every exam). Since my flow is so light and adding that to the fact of the short vagina and tilted bit, I figure I'll need a pretty small cup.

The research I've done in this community points me to a small or mini Meluna, a small Sckoon, or a small Lunette. I'm very familiar with my body and I'm not squeamish at all, but I really don't want to pay for a cup that won't work for me. Who here has tiny insides and can weigh in?
