Ok so I have been have trouble with my cup "popping open". Which lead me to wonder if maybe I am taking the term popping open to literally.
When you insert your cup should it open completely as big as it is when its outside of your body or just big enough to accommodate for your body size?

I think maybe...the cup might be opening but that my vagina is to "tight" for it open completely. Is this a possibility? Am I taking the term 'open' to an extrem? Or should open just mean open?

Analogy: crush a paper cup in your fist. How much water will it hold?

"Tight" is a function of your pelvic floor (PC) muscles. Next time after you go pee, insert your finger and give it a little squeeze. Above them, your vaginal walls are more involuntary than voluntary, and quite elastic.

I think you're rushing the process. Insert the cup so the rim is just beyond your pubic bone and allow it to open fully there. Create an air channel on the soft back side of your vagina to help the cup fill with air as it opens. Take your time, don't rush! If you have trouble getting the cup to open, re-insert it with the folded part facing the other way. Up instead of down, or left instead of right (etc.) Sometimes enlarging the tiny little anti-suction holes around the rim helps too.

Then once it's fully open, then give it a boost as you kegel it up and into place.

And final tip: If you don't already, drop your panties to your ankles so you can splay your knees comfortably. Keeping them up at knee height makes it hard to maneuver around down there.
