Stance varies from rider to rider and there is no magic equation (like fitting your shoulders in your bindings). It depends on height, weight, directionality of your board, what you ride and just the overall feel of the set-up. I would lay your board on the ground, without bindings and just step your two feet on it. Note where your feet land, mark that, and use it as your starting point for stance width. A good rule of thumb is to start out with the bindings just a little more than shoulder width apart and see how it feels.
Once you have a stance that feels good while riding, measure from the center or one binding to the center of the next, that's your stance width.
