If you look in the Robinsons or any of the catalogues you will see pictures of them.  The usually have a raised bit at the front and a flattish bit at the back, in raising it up more at the front it will help it be more in alignment.  A good quality one is important though so a manufacturer like Prolite would be good.

If you are sitting to much to the front of the saddle the reason could be the saddle being a bit to wide in the gullet. A good saddler should be able to fit another gullet bar, a little narrower with this your saddle should be more balanced. A pad rises your saddle at the back as well even the back end of the pad is only thin.
