Draw your larger selection and save it to a channel.
Check the "Expand from center" option in the tool's Option dialog and
then click inside the selection to activate the drag handles[*]. Use
the handles to resize your rectangle.
Invert your selection and then intersect it with the previously saved
channel (CTL+SHIFT the red button next to the trashcan in the Channels
[*] Even though the handles might be visible, they are not actually
active after a "Select->Save to channel" is performed (this is
probably a bug).
