Suggestions for seat cushion of reupholstered chair

I just posted this on the Home Decorating forum, but realized, it probably should be posted in furniture.

Any suggestions for the seat cushion for a chair I am having reupholstered? What do most good upholsters use? I ordered a spring-down cushion (which is what I have on most of my upholstered pieces)through the mfr. of the chair. This chair is only ten years old, so I was able to order the spring down cushion, but the other chair is a very old wing chair, handed down through my grandmother. It is lovely - channel back, beautifully-carved mahogany legs. I know I don't want anything too tailored and tight, but do most upholsters have different types of cushions available or is their an industry standard with upholsters and cushions? I talked to one upholster who uses foam wrapped in soft Dacron.

When I get organized, I will post the pictures and get everyone's opinion on the fabric. I will need some extra eyes and perspective! Thank you.
