Hi,
the old style women's frame is an inferior design. The slope weakens the frame. On that style of frame the top tube drops low on the seat tube. The new style compact frame there is a slope, but the top tube is attached a couple inches down. Compact frames are fine, and quite handy for short legs.My wife uses one of the more expensive Terry saddles. My Sis uses a WTB Speed She Ti. The hi end Terry saddles are narrow, and Speed She is moderately wide. All depends on what feels comfy; and the way you find that out is by trying it. It would help to know what sort of riding you plan on doing, and how tall she is.
