How about a Brooks hater? Well, not so much a hater as that rare person who had one, back in the '60s and early '70s, and really didn't like it at all.
I suggest you find a bike shop that has a few loaners and try them out to get a feel for what works. When you get the right saddle you'll know within the first fifty miles. I have found that my rear end is wider than expected for a male, so I have often happily used saddles labeled for females. The Specialized thing I ride on now comes in various widths. Of course I use the widest one they sell. Strangely, my wife has always used the ones marketed to males.
