keeping a fogless mirror in shower help-suction cups?

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to keep the suction cups from coming off the tile. I have one of those inexpensive fogless mirrors, but the cups give way every few weeks.

Thanks, Jim

I moved your post here, as the forum in which you originally posted it is not interactive and you could therefore have not received an answer to your question.

Are your tiles perfectly smooth, or are they a little gritty? In addition, some more expensive larger suction cups may help. You should be able to get them at hardware store. The weight of the mirror is placing an angular pressure on the center of the cup and causing the top part of the cup to become detached and therefore failing to hold. A larger cup may help.
