Getting a softer cup to open?

I've been using  diva cup for 10 years, and recently bought a meluna as a back up cup.

But I'm having trouble getting it to pop open inside. The fold I use for the diva cup (similar to a punch down) just seems to get stuck and not pop out after insertion when using the meluna. So it takes me quite a while to get it open (at least 3-4 minutes, whereas the diva cup takes <30 seconds).

I'm sure I'll get better at it after a few tries, but any tips in the meantime?

Thanks!
