Leaking Mooncup- On the Hunt for a Replacement

I am 22 years old, sexually active, no children, moderately physically active, have a medium-heavy flow, and have a low cervix.
I bought the Mooncup in a size B without any research because it was the first one I found in a physical (not online) store that wasn't a DivaCup.
I had trouble inserting it at first because it is so firm and the rim is so thick but by my second cycle I got the hang of it, even though there is still discomfort.
Now, a few cycles later, I am experiencing constant leaking even though it is opening once inside. I also attempted to swim with it for the first time and it leaked BIG time. All over my swimsuit bottoms.
Now I am on the hunt for a new one. I am interested in the MeLuna because it comes in so many sizes, colors, and different levels of firmness.
I used the size calculator and the result is size medium. I am unsure if I should get the classic or sport level of firmness?
I am afraid if I get the classic it won't open and my muscles will crush it. On the other hand, I am afraid that if I get the sport I will experience the same discomfort that I experience when inserting and removing my Mooncup.

I am not against trying something other than the MeLuna but I would like to order from the US to cut down on shipping issues/expenses and that dreaded wait.
