Ordered both Small and Large Si-Bell

I just finished my period using medium MeLuna in Classic softness and while it worked just fine for me (after I figured out the best fold for easy opening, which in my case was "labia" fold with the folded side facing towards the belly button), I'm curious about how silicon compares to TPE and want to see what a softer cup would be like. I don't exactly feel MeLuna, but sometimes there's this "fullness" sensation (even with an empty cup) and I wonder if it can be avoided with a softer cup. Also I got Meluna with the ring stem, thinking that I'm gonna need all the help getting it out, but turns out my cervix is not high while on period, so now I wish that the stem wasn't there at all. It's not uncomfortable, but it's just about in and it ain't particularly flexible. BTW, anyone tried cutting off the ring stem of a MeLuna?

I spent 2 days going back and forth on either Small or Large Si-Bell and eventually decided that I won't satisfy my curiosity, until I try both anyway and by ordering both at once at least I don't have to pay twice for shipping (which is almost half the price of the cup, so definitely a consideration). Small is nearly identical to a medium MeLuna in dimensions and capacity, so would be a safer bet. But I hear larger cups are often better for a "dangly" cervix and I like the idea of emptying it less often.

I considered Fleurcup too. It's very similar to Si-Bell in shape and softness and it would cost me half of what Si-Bell order totaled to, but for some reason I'm really drawn to Si-Bell's design and from what I gather Si-Bell's quality is better.

The bottom line is, I just ended up spending more money on cups than what a 3 year supply of disposable pads would cost me. And I don't regret it one bit! :D
