What sail should I get?

A PO installed a windless on my boat and I just figured out that doing so eliminated the cutter stay. As I was planning on getting new sails, should I plan on getting a bigger headsail to accommodate the sail I no longer have?

The benefit of the cutter rig is not so much in the added sail area, but in the option of flying a stays'l instead of your head sail in higher winds.
