Help me navigate the Meluna option jungle

Hi all,

I'm hoping some of you more experienced people can offer a little guidance. Meluna has too many options! How in the world do I go about picking???

Background in case it helps: I used a Diva (the small one) before I had kids and I found it really annoying to get to open correctly (too stiff, I'm guessing). After kids I got a Large Ladycup. It was a breeze to insert (LOVED that!) but was uncomfortable for me even with the stem cut all the way off. I finally turned it inside out, which helped in the comfort department somewhat--but that solution only worked for the first little while after insertion...as time goes on, it becomes less and less comfortable (feels like it's coming out or something).

I'm thinking this go-around, I want to try a Meluna. But should I go with soft or classic or sport? I've just cut my stems all the way off in the past so they don't poke me, so should I even worry about which stem style to get (If yes, which should I pick)? It looks like the Meluna site has a deal right now on their starter kits so I'm leaning that way...but that would mean classic stiffness and I'm just not sure if soft would be better. So many options...
