More than one cup for a cycle?

Hi,

I'm wondering how many of you out there have more than one cup to get you through a cycle. For example, one with smaller capacity for light days and a heftier one for your heavy days.

Any folks with kids that have luck with both size 1 and 2 without leaking? I've got the low cervix deal and it seems that I'm running out of options for going shorter without going narrower. I discovered the dangling cervix deal on the last day too, so I'm afraid that might complicate things.

I've tried Lunette Large and Sckoon Large. Lunette seems a bit long. I've had luck using it inside out, but sometimes it's hard to work with inside out. Sckoon length was good (after removing stem), but the pretty petal grips irritate me (and no luck getting it to open inside out). I need the capacity only for 2 days, but wouldn't mind something smaller for the other days. The medium mini meluna is appealing for that, but I'm afraid the grips could bother me - though it is a bit shorter so it might not rub. Otherwise it seems like a cup similar to Sckoon length with a smooth bottom (no grips/stem) might be what I need. Looking at the size charts, Iriscup looks like it could be good, but I'm not sure if I can get my hands on one. Large Si-bell is tempting too, but it's as long as the L Lunette - so I wonder if a small could work. Any suggestions? Any other options that might work that aren't on the size charts?

Anyone else have issues with sensitivity to the textures on the bottom?

I really want to use cups, but they have to be comfortable as well as functional...
