MeLuna XL and Fleurcup capacity

The closest cup I have to a goldilocks is the large Fleur, which is easy to insert, remove, clean, and creates an excellent, leak-free seal. It still runs a bit short on capacity (I'm a champion bleeder). I dream of a cup I can wear to sleep soundly through the night without getting up to empty it. I can fill the Fleur about 3/4 of the way full before it starts leaking. My cervix definitely takes up some space.

Things I like about the Fleur: The bell-shape helps me get more out of the capacity than the Yuuki with the cervix issues. The Yuuki I could never fill past halfway, and I suspect it just never sealed well anyway, as it frequently leaked regardless of how full it was. So no more pointy-shaped cups for me.

I noticed the MeLuna XL has a similar bell-shape to the Fleur, but might offer higher capacity. Is anyone who's used both able to weigh in?

The resistance of the Fleur is just about perfect to me. Which resistance in Meluna is most similar to the Fleur? (Classic? Sport? Soft?)

I'm also been eyeing the Luv Ur Body, but I'm a bit daunted by the size of Medium and Large. I am 26, no births, and have no problem with the larges of any brand I've tried, but I'm still a bit daunted by the size of those babies!
