In search of the Goldilocks cup. Day one cramping?

Hi :) i want to start off saying thank you for this community for helping me find my way into menstrual cups a year ago. So far everything is great, except for the first day of my cycle. On the first day i get normal cramps, but using a menstrual cup worsens them and gives me a bloated feeling. The rest of my cycle is just fine, and i can never feel the cup itself. Right now i am using a lunette size 2, for its firmness and capacity. However it may be putting a little too much pressure, but i dont think its because of my cervix its hitting. Before i tried my lunnette i had a size 1 rainbow cup, which was TOO soft and TOO small of a capacity. I am only 17 but i have no issues inserting, taking out, or even feeling the cup.

TLDR: I've been using a lunnette 2, but its been causing worsened cramps on the first day. I'm looking for a cup with a capacity like lunette 2 but a little softer(maybe the evaCup). Plus any ideas on what could be causing the cramps?
