Without getting a saddle fitter, how can you measure for yourself for a saddle?

Without getting a saddle fitter, how can you measure for yourself for a saddle?
When you're fitting the saddle by yourself you put it on horse's back without numnah and check if:
You can fit 3 to 4 fingers at the wither,
Check if the knee roll isn't pinching horse's shoulders,
Check if the saddle easily tips forward (if so it's bad),
And look at overall picture of your horse wearing this saddle and see if it's too small or too big.
