Saddle too Small?

Hello, I think my saddle is too small, but I'm not sure. Your supposed to have 2-3 fingers between your leg and the front of the saddle. I only have 1. But its a barrel saddle and has a really deep seat. I don't ever seem squished, more snug. It never hurts me. But when I look at pictures, it looks small. Is it too small or just snug?

It might just be snug. DO you have any photos?

Some people like barrel saddles a half of size to a size smaller than they would usually. So if you don't feel squished and its comfortable to you then go for it its probably just snug
