Love my Lunette 1, but it keeps leaking on me...

Hey ladies!

I'm looking for some advice on getting a new cup to use when my Lunette 1 isn't cutting it. I originally got the cup primarily to deal with discharge I was experiencing after getting a Paragard IUD put in, and it worked great for that, but it was never really effective for my periods with the IUD because they were too heavy, and also, weirdly, it seems my vagina expands a little during my period. I'd never heard of this, but I swear that's what's happening; I thought it was IUD related (that thing caused a lot of weirdness) but now I have it out and the expansion is still happening. It makes some sense I suppose, since it probably helps shed the lining faster, but it makes it impossible to get a good seal on heavy flow days with my Lunette.

Soooo, I'm looking for suggestions for a cup that's similar to Lunette 1 in thickness and size, but has a slightly larger rim. I looked at Lunette 2 but I'm not sure about it because it seems considerably harder and possibly too large. Stem isn't an issue (clipped that thing off right away), and I don't have a hard time removing and inserting, but my cup does press on my bladder a little and makes me need to go more often, so a really thick rim probably isn't for me. I also love how easy Lunette's holes are to clean, but I'm willing to give that up for a cup that I don't have to worry about leaking.

I've considered the Meluna large, but I'm not sure if I'd like the TPE as much as silicone.

Any suggestions?
