    I think you should keep looking, to be honest.

    While that may be true, my butt changes sizes up/down enough that the 1/2" will more than likely fit me in a few weeks and by the end of summer, won't fit me at all. I can't afford to buy a seat that fits me now and another one for when I gain weight back. I can do that with jeans, not with a saddle!

    Seat size has less to do with weight changes than it does with femur length and pelvis width just fyi. Weight will obv affect it some, but my weight has fluctuated in a 30 pound range from my mid/normal range (15+ / 15-) and my 17" saddle still fits. I could lose a whole 30 and i'd still be a 17". My pelvis isn't and won't be a 16.5" since well I went through puberty lol.

    Exactly as what CJ just said - seat size has little to do with the size of your tooshy. It's about your leg length and pelvis. My weight fluctuates as well, I can went from 165 to what I am now 180 and I am still a 17.5". I've tried 18", and I swim in them.
