My first menstrual cup was the lily cup size B (I've given birth vaginally). I was so excited! I have a low cervix but I am able to get this cup to work for me but it is not easy. At all. My muscles crush this super soft and squishy cup like a hot knife through butter! Before I can get this cup to even unfold it seals to my walls, I have to spend ages trying to continuously break the seal and try to get as much air into the cup as possible. So, I decided to get the lunette model 2, and also bought the meLuna medium classic, for lighter days. All my cups are so pretty and I love them! Unfortunately not one of them work well for me.
Turns out my cervix is crazy tilted. This is how I can best explain; If my vagina were a clock, My uterus and cervix would be at 12, vaginal opening would be at 6, and my cervix's opening is at 2 or 3..
The lunette, and meluna's rims are flat and there isn't enough room to get my cup to situate around my cervix, even if there were enough room the cup would just tip, because of the lily cups shape, it actually works for my body, since the longer rim is small enough to fit in the tiny crevice between my cervix and vaginal wall, but as I said before, getting this cup to open is a brutal process, takes ages, and on my heavy day my cervix gets drawn pretty far in my cup and takes up capacity.(another reason I wanted the Lunette)
So my question(about time!) are there any cups out there that have a similar shape to the lily cup, with one side of the rim longer, but a firmer cup?
Or any tips on getting the lunette or meluna to work for me?

I suspect you just need to fine tune your techniques. Figure out what you've done right when they work and not when they don't.

My cervix is very low and usually positioned far back against the rear vaginal wall. It took quite some time for me to figure out how to get cups to work because the position was far from any anatomical diagrams I ever saw! I now find the end of my cervix and scoop the cup around it and shimmy it in place. Sometimes creates discomfort since my cervix doesn't appreciate being jostled about!

I've tried that, but my cervix seems to be too close to my rear vaginal wall that the cup just gets pushed away, and my cervix just won't stay in the cup.
I'm not at all squeamish, I have no problem getting all up in my business, but my body just does not want to co operate! I will of course keep trying
