I mean, besides obviously having a correct posture, is there anything to look for in a piano bench that could help for pain? Like, a bigger cushion or something like that?

A height adjustable one works wonders. If the bench height is too low I get pain in shoulders. Church piano I play has adjustable height bench with pad, and it also has slight downslope to the front.

Type of bench is no factor.
Some play on a chair from the dinner table; others, a bar stool.
Height of bench is a partial factor.
Obvious.
Keeping your back straight is the most important factor.
Doing so will lessen and typically will eliminate back pain; sure worked for me and enabled much longer periods of a single session at the piano.
