New Cup Initiate with some intimate questions

Hi, I've been researching cups and talking to friends about them for months now, and I'm ready to pull the trigger. I can't afford to play Goldilocks, so I'm really trying to pinpoint the "right" cup. I'm 4'11" with a small vagina, and my cervix is quite high. I'm 36, but have no children. My PC muscles are pretty good, but I also strain (I know, terrible habit) on the toilet, sometimes because of a shy bladder, and I get really body-wracking coughs from asthma. I really don't want the cup to pop out if that happens, and I'm not sure what the likelihood of that would be.

I have it narrowed down to the Divacup 1, because I just don't hear bad reviews about it (even thought I wonder if it will be too big for me?), and the MeLuna Sport, because I like the design and stem options (ring stem seems nice), and it might be more solid during the day, or a hard crash snowboarding. The MeLuna Classic is also an option. Seems like the middle of the road choice in medium. Like I said, I'm quite small, with an average flow, and my cervix definitely isn't low. Opinions? Thanks, all! I'm really excited to get with the program.
