My wife had a similar problem on "softer" saddles. She ended up on a Specialized Ruby. It's rock hard compared to saddles like the Terry, Lady Gel Flow, Diva Gel Flow, etc. That did the trick for her. More sit bone pressure (which was painful at first), but it has been a much better setup overall.

We did two centuries together last year. She had a Lady Gel Flow on the first one and was applying chamois butter at every rest stop. At the end of the day, I wasn't sure she'd ever ride another one.

On the Ruby, it wasn't even an issue.

Good luck.

Bob
