Default Uncomfortable seats

I find the cloth seats in my 2017 Sport Tech quite comfortable, but my wife, who is... um, well... a bit larger in the hips than me says the seats actually start hurting her after 10 miles or so. If there is anyone out there who has found a cure for a similar problem, short of replacing the seats, please let me know what it is.

Man, you guys have changed. About 12-13 years ago, this thread would've been flooded with 'Pics of wife?' responses.

Aw c'mon, guys. She's not that big. The damned seats are only 11" wide between the wings.

you COULD take the cover off the seat and use a blade to whittle down the foam.

Maybe find a used seat from salvage yard. Take that one apart and see what the seat looks like after making changes. You can prob use hog rings to take up slack of cover. I've upholstered 3 sets of seats over the years. It's not brain surgery.

Let me say this as nice as possible.

The seats are not the problem.
