Dressage saddle search

I'm in the market for a new dressage saddle and wanted to get some feedback from you guys on what make work for us.

I'm 5'9, and just had a baby so about 175lbs (hoping to get down to 145) and my horse is just getting back into work after a two year baby hiatus, so he'll be building muscle. He's a 17.3hh Canadian Warmblood (TB mare and Oldenburg sire).

I'm thinking of a 18" Passier GG? I rode in a Isabell Wintec and it didn't suit my body at all! I want something fairly plush and comfy for both of us.

I'll post some pics of my gelding tonight for reference. He's the horse in my avatar.

I appreciate any advice.

I'm about your size (although I already dropped the weight after the baby :) ), and I LOVE my 18" Thornhill Vienna, 32 tree. I have TB-like-built paint and it fits her nicely, I also used it on WB during the lessons this year, and it also was a nice fit.

Passiers are nice and comfortable saddles too (but I never rode in one, just sat).

Stubben was one of the worst fit for both of my horses (all models I tried).
