How to create a fixed width, fixed position header in Bootstrap

The default fixed-top navbar in Bootstrap spans the full width of the viewport. I want to contain it within a container div. I am able to contain the left side using the following CSS override:

.navbar-fixed-bottom {
  position: fixed;
 right: auto;
  left: auto;
  z-index: 1030;

But the navbar still extends full window on the right.  Giving a definite width to the navbar does work, but it destroys the menu collapse.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
