Speed, no kidding.
My butt fits into 17, but my legs don't fit in lots of them. 17.5 would be the smallest. That's what my saddle fitter says too, but I could see for myself when we tried bunch of saddles: my legs go over the block or my rear is pushed out (so I need something with very forward flaps).
BTW, that Berney Brother one I tried yesterday was REALLY nice (and comfy): so forward that even being 17.5 it still accommodated me nicely with enough room left (and very well cared for by the only owner + cheaper(!) than I though it was). Heck, IF it would just fit my horse I'd just keep it in heartbeat!
OP, sorry for hijacking... +
