I got a small lady cup and femmecup. I did a dry run with them and they both stuck out of me when I inserted them. The femmecup the most but the lady cups whole bottom part (cut the steam off completely).
I also could not get a good suction either, the cup kept slipping out of me. I think my cervix is just too low and I really want to use a cup. Any recommendations?

Wait till your period. Dry runs are notoriously misleading, the conditions just aren't the same. :)

I have a low cervix and have had amazing luck with a Sckoon Cup. I'm in love with it.

Have you found your cervix yet? If not, use your finger to feel for a bump harder than the surrounding flesh. I think you haven't put the cup in far enough, but you have to know where your cervix is to aim the cup correctly. Also, I agree about waiting for your period, it'll be easier to insert the cup fully then (and easier to know if it's in the right place). Don't give up or buy another cup yet. Try it for at least a cycle, two or three would give you a better test. Then if you want another cup, you'll know what you're looking for.

As stated above, insert a finger and see how far in you have to reach before you touch your cervix. Measure it, and compare to the cups you have.
If the cups you have are longer than that, they will not fit. However, because the position of your cervix can change, wait out your period and check your cervix height daily while on period. If your cups still measure longer than there is space, get a shorter cup. Obviosuly, if the ones you have stick out of you, and you are sure you inserted them as high as they can go, meaning around your cervix, you can't use them.

I have a super low cervix and all my cups are short. See all of mine here for an idea of what they look like, capacity, softness,etc.

Also check the size charts (not sure if the lesser known cups are all listed yet)
