We're all built differently, so thank goodness saddles come in all kinds of shapes. I'm 5'9" and leggy. I should be able to sit in just about anything, but if I get too wide a twist my whole leg cramps up and I feel like I'm about to get a sciatic nerve explosion. Narrow to medium twist and I'm fine. Getting bruised "down under" with a narrow twist is a better option for me than wanting to chew my leg off.
I do wish it weren't a "go get a narrow twist" fad, but rather a "go find a saddle that fits you" fad.
