I've had a lot of problems with modern MTB/touring seats as the cut-out makes them wider than the old-skool stuff. I thought I was getting old, turns out it's not just that - seats got wider in the mid section, I'm a narrow fit, and relief was found in an early 90s seat without a centre void.
Again, width and the steepness of the transition from wide to narrow may not be the same solution. Changing width is worth a try, but so is moving it back.
