I have read of some "sit bone measuring" device, but have never seen one at a bike shop.

Is there any way to suggest a style of size of saddle without have a professional measurement?

Or is it just a case of trial and error?
Do any of the LBS have a loaner program? In the past, I have been able to test out different saddles before spending any $.
