Diva cup, bad fit? leaking, not staying put.

I've tried a moon cup in the past and pretty much had exactly the same problem, it felt too big, leaked constantly and was very difficult to remove.

I have a tilted cervix, have had a baby by emergency c-section, am over thirty, but very small in stature so this time have opted for a diva cup size 1, though I seem to have a particularly heavy flow. It leaks, I cannot turn it once it's in at all, and once it's in, it seems to travel upwards and to the side, so that I can barely grasp the stem at all, and, frankly, getting it out feels like a horror show.

I really want this to work.

What am I doing wrong? Is it my cervix? is it the size? am i not getting the seal right?
