High capacity soft cup for high cervix?

I'm about to buy my first cup. Using the size charts, measurement charts and other info on this website, I've narrowed it down to either a small Si-Bell or a small Lunette. I have a high cervix, I can barely reach it squatting, so I need a long cup/stem. I also want a soft cup since I think it will hurt to insert a stiffer cup. (The main reason I'm not considering the Diva is that it's stiffer.) (FWIW, I'm 24 and never had sex of any variety)

However, I've just realized that my flow is probably heavy. I thought of it as more average/moderate but after researching tampon capacities, I'm not sure. I don't want to change the cup more often than I change tampons now.

Currently, for the first 2 days (heaviest days), I go through an ultra tampon in 2-3 hours (Tampax Pearl Ultra, if it matters). After that 2-3 hours, the tampon and string are completely saturated and dripping with blood. It's so full that I barely need to pull the string to remove it. If I didn't also use pads for backup, I'd have to change every 60-90 minutes. I plan to use cloth pads with the cup as backup, but I just don't want the cup to overflow in 2-3 hours.

Do you think the small Si-Bell or Lunette have enough capacity for that? Are there any cups you'd recommend instead?

Would it make sense to get a large Si-Bell instead even though I'm nulliparous? It has a greater capacity than the small, but is still soft and has a long stem.

Thanks in advance for your help/advice. I really appreciate this community and am grateful for all I've learned so far.
