Should I buy an additional cup for heavier days?

I've just spent one cycle with my mooncup (B), which is my first cup ever, but on the heaviest day I felt like the capacity isn't big enough. I emptied every few hours (because I was paranoid and still have to learn how much blood I lose and so on) and the cup was always about a third full... I fear that if I wear it for more than about 4 hours I'll leak or overflow.
How many cycle should I wait until I decide if I need a bigger cup for my heavy days? I'm still a cup newbie so maybe you know better before I rush to decisions.

I'm thinking about getting a medium and large classic MeLuna as there is a cheap set on sale (22,50 € for 2 cups) on the German website and then I'd have one narrower and one wider than my mooncup for different days of my cycle.

Any advice?
