Brooks B17 saddles

My sit bones are 10.5 cm apart.

The Brooks B17 is 17.0 cm wide whilst the B17 Narrow is 15.1 wide.

I know that leather fits slightly differently from synthetic, but would even the B17 Narrow be too wide for me?

Mine are 11.3 cm apart. I find the 17 Narrow to be a bit too narrow, and it's possible for me to fall sideways with one cheek off the "platform" if I squirrel around while pedaling.
