I need help getting a new cup


I'm still new to using menstrual cups, since I just started about 5 months ago, but I can't seem to find a good fit. I'm not a virgin, I never had any kids, I have strong pelvic muscles, a low cervix and a moderate to heavy flow.
I've already tried the Divacup, the small Meluna and the small Fleurcup. I simply couldn't use the Divacup, it was too long and uncomfortable for me (even cutting all the stem off). I cut the stem off of my small Meluna as well, and even though it is just right there to reach it, I can't feel it in, so it's ok. The trouble is that my flow is very heavy on shark days, I have to empty my Meluna every 4 to 6 hours or so (and it's never full when it starts leaking, so I think my cervix sits inside the cup, because I am getting a good seal) and I really need one that holds longer than that, because I don't like emptying it in public restrooms. I decided to try the Fleurcup because it is also a short cup, but it is wider, so I thought it would hold better, but it is so soft that it is hard to get it to open and it also leaks everytime I exercise.
I'm getting really frustrated, because most cups are much longer than I find comfortable and I really don't want to go back to tampons. Does anybody have a good suggestion?

Thank you very much
