Streaky, here is how you do the measurements: Instructional Video: How To Do A Back/Wither Tracing
(just read the whole "Saddle Fitting" section). Then you can contact them directly (this place is really nice to deal with, and they often have good deals).
P.S. The only problem from what I can guess you are not in US, so I'm not sure if US stores work with other countries. I'd suggest to look for something similar in your own country.
