Soooo... I've seen in several posts where folks have said that one's cup should fit like (o) around the cervix. I take this to mean that the margins of the cervix should be "parallel" to the margins of the cup, if that makes sense. This sounds odd to me, since my cervix protrudes from the front vaginal wall, and for all margins to be parallel, the cup would have to be sitting sideways in me. The opening of my cervix does not point to the vaginal opening. See what I'm saying?
Am I misunderstanding what is being said? If not, what are the implications for me, i.e is there a particular cup that would work better for me? I've used the small diva and fleur, and the large yuuki and lunette. The small fleur has been the best, though even it will leak from time to time.

Even though many like to demonstrate it with a champagne flute, NOBODY's vagina is as rigid as a glass. They'd be better off demonstrating it with nylon stockingette because that's how flexible and stretchy vaginal walls are.

As for length, imagine that you want to look down a tube. It's easy to raise the tube to your face but as the tube gets longer/taller, you have to stand on tippy-toes and crane your neck more and more until you can't look down it any more. At that point the tube is too long for you and that's how a cup could be too long too.

Edited to add: Use what you like best, feels most comfortable and works best. Right now, it's your Fleur. :o) But it's OK to mix and match.

Mine is the same way my cup sits against the lower side of my cervix

My cup sits exactly as you described. The front edge of the rim rests right next to my cervix, and the opening of the cup is at a right angle (or an acute angle at least) to my cervix. It might not look the diagram, but it's right for my body and never leaks!
