I believe this would work, but it is really only a temporary solution. If this is the only problem with your saddle, I would save up some money but not worry. If there are other issues with the saddle as well, I would definitely invest in a new saddle.
Also, if it is only two fingers on all sides, does this mean your channel is too small? Its really hard to know because I'm not the one seeing and touching your saddle.
