So I'm trying to pick my first modifier for my B800/D-lite IT 400 (haven't decided yet) and could use some help

Only have enough money to buy one modifier at the moment, I will of course be expanding my selection over time but would appreciate your thoughts on which one I should get first

I've narrowed it down to a PLM (yes I know they're on backorder), the photek softlighter II, and a large softbox.

I mostly shoot fashion/portraits

Added note: specifically for the PLM I'm referring to the silver lined one with front diffusing fabric

The PLM is listed as backorder but I ordered on Tuesday and it should be on my doorstep today. I ordered two 64" silver with difusers.

I have two softliters that I retired when I got the PLMS.
I also have two Buff medium softboxes that I seldom use now.
I just like the light from the PLM, there is a crispness that the softliter or softbox are lacking when I shoot people.
