Think about a saddle being a shoe; if you try on a pair of shoes that hurt, you're not going to want to perform well while wearing them, and no amount of socks (comparable to saddle pads) is going to make them feel 100%.
There are some ways to kind of check for yourself if the saddle fits at the most basic level - there are lots of threads on that topic in this area of the forum. In order to be sure that it fits well, you're going to have to hire a professional to come out and check - and believe me, it's money well spent. I've seen and felt what a difference a well-fitting saddle makes, and it truly is astounding. Again, think of it being like an ouchy pair of shoes compared to runners that fit really well.
Hope that helps.
Awesome! Thanks so much!
Is it possible to fit the saddle that I currently have? I probably sound really dumb, but it's brand new and expensive so I'd be in deep trouble if it doesn't fit!
