Ours was bought in 2009 and is an S300 Washlet by Toto. It fits on the American Standard toilet just fine.
When you are looking for a bidet seat online, you will find pics on how to measure your toilet to make sure you have a good fit. Measure carefully because often you cannot return such a personal item.
Also, hunt around online for the best price. There are big differences depending on where you buy it.

Pat...one more bidet question. Would the rails for the toilet that attach at the back of the lid fit with the bidet seat?? Carol

Carol, I have taken 3 pictures for you to see in the attached web album. They are of the very back of the toilet on each side, so you can see how much space is available. Not much. The bidet seat does dominate the top.

You might be able to get another set of rails that attach to the wall next to the toilet if a bidet seat is a priority for you as it has been for us. Also, some systems might be anchored more to the floor. I have seen a variety of styles online for support rails at the toilet.

Hope this helps you.

Pat

For anyone wanting to see before and after pictures, go to Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Treasuresinthedarkness

I have not gone to that page much in a long time, but wanted to give folks who might be interested a chance to see what the remodel looks like.

John is now in moderate to severe stage of LBD. Things still fluctuate, but overall he is doing okay with full time caregivers at home and LifeCare adult day care during the week. He held mostly early stage symptoms for about 6 years with a lot of tweaking and working closely with our medical team since 2007 when he was diagnosed. I have been very busy since August of 2013 when his slide became undeniable.

The bathroom is still a big blessing to us both as well as being a big plus in hiring caregivers since it makes their job much easier. I would definitely do it again.

Blessing and prayers to all of you on this caregiving journey.

Pat
