No, seat savers go from the swells to the cantle. Looks like these push you in front of the cantel.

OP - it depends on what you are doing. For trail riding, a seat saver is fine. However if you are doing events where you need a secure seat - I would suggest a new saddle.

Congrats on the weight loss!

The second is a seat saver, but has a lot of foam padding and will take up room in the saddle. The third is the same idea as the first, just a different brand.

No, no it's not. The first and third link I posted are ONLY pads BEHIND your rear end. There is NOTHING "under" your seat. LOOK at the pictures...

I wonder how the one with the foam feels under the bum. Good to know they exist.

I have ridden with seat savers. They lift you off the saddle some, so the saddle feels more "shallow," but it's very cushy and comfortable.

Excellent! I can't afford to buy a new saddle right now (had some $$ saved up and then life got in the way) and this looks like just what I need! I too have lost about 20lbs and have gone from a 16 in seat to a 14.5-15. Thanks luvs :) Cause 3 pair of pants would be awfully hot!
