This gets to be a real personal question. It all depends on how far apart your sits bones are and that changes with your position on the bike. I'm about your size, a few pounds heavier, but just a fat cruiser-weight but I race so need a relatively narrow saddle. Everybody's mileage will vary.
Specialized actually makes a rig for measuring your fundamental aspect (thats without anyone needing to reach down there with a ruler) and they sell saddles in different sizes to match.
Even if you don't go for the measurement, check out the saddles, good stuff.
Don't go too heavy on the cushioning, it'll compress and put pressure on the parts that don't need it.
