Default help needed: looking for Subaru cargo net dimensions

Short version: I'm looking for a Subaru cargo net that would be slightly taller and slightly less wide than the OEM cargo net for a 2011 Forester. I'm not sure which model I should get, and I'm having a hard time finding any dimensions listed for the nets.

Full story: I have a BMW X1, and I'd really like to add a vertical cargo net. Unfortunately, there is no OEM solution. But I do have some likely anchor points, and on a whim I tried putting in the net from my wife's 2011 Forester. I was very surprised to find that it's a pretty close fit! If I need to, I can get another one just like it and "make it work," but ideally I'd like to find one that's just a little taller, and a little more narrow across. Maybe one from an Impreza? I don't know!

So if anyone out there would be kind enough to measure the installed point-to-point width and height of their cargo nets, I'd really appreciate it. I measured the one in the Forester, and installed it's about 44" across the top, and about 14" tall. I think I need something an inch or two taller and an inch or two less wide. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Pretty sure Subaru makes one size. What's the reason for a taller one? Seems like an odd request.

Won't a Subaru net stretch an inch or two to fit? We're talking an inch or two so what gives?
