What am I doing wrong?

So I have been using the diva cup. Had no problems first few months but now this month it has been leaking.

I know that:
1 - it is open. I run my finger around the inside and it is definitely open up there.
2- my cervix is not outside of it. This was my concern and so I made sure of that.

I do know that there is a lot of air when it pops open. I tried squishing it to remove some air but then it folds together too much and I have to go through the process again. Should I be trying a different cup? For reference I am 31, no children and using a size 2. I am fine with switching to another one if I need to, but since they can be somewhat pricey I figured I would get some advice before I started buying all of them.

Thank you so much!
