small cups?


a little bit about me - i am 20, never had children, not a virgin, always only have a light to medium flow and i have a lunette size 2 (my first cup.)
when i first got the lunette i noticed immediately i had to trim the stem completely off. even with it off, for my first cycle with it i also had to flip it inside out because the base would sit right at my entrance.
i'm on my second cycle now and am trying it again flipped right way out and it seems okay as long as i wriggle it right up, but i'm on the lookout for another better fitting cup.

i have a few questions for anyone who might want to weigh in and help me :)
i first looked at the meluna classic medium (i think?) the 45x45 one (since thats the same diameter as the lunette) but much shorter. i'm only apprehensive because the meluna is not made of silicone and im concerned about the material and the colours having some sort of effect - does anyone have any information on this?

second question - does anyone know of any cups that have similar dimensions (45 diameter and short roughly) that are silicone? im only thinking the 45 diameter because it seems to be working, and i wonder if a skinnier one would leak or something? i have no problems with removal so im not sure if skinnier would be a problem or not. i was looking at the juju for size but again i am unsure because..

question three - what about the squishiness?? i understand the lunette is quite firm and it works nicely for me and i have had no leaks whatsoever, so i'm worried if i were to buy another one (such as the juju) how the softness would affect any leaking; i'm semi-active and spend all of my working time on my feet walking around.

so many questions! i want to invest wisely since i certainly am not rolling in cash at the moment. :)
