Design advice needed! Odd picture size inside a standard picture frame.

20 3/4" (w) x 28" (h) poster, can't afford to custom frame it. Which is better: 1) a standard 22x28 frame, with a little extra space (or matting) along the width of the poster; 2) a 24x30 frame with 1 1/2" mat on either side and 1" of mat at top and bottom each?

Both seem to be kind of unbalanced in the way they appear. (I would, by the way, get any necessary matting done custom; it's just for the frame I have to go with mass-produced).
I'm looking at a simple, black, wood frame. So far I've identified the Blick Essentials frame
in 24x30 or the Nielsen Tribeca frame
in 22x28. Cost is the same. Matting will be about $20 more.
I'm just not sure what would look best more most balanced! Is there a third alternative?
