New car seat discomfort

Hi 👋 all,

Got my new car, but have noticed the seats are slightly more concave than my old car. Has anyone used lumbar support car cushions? I’ve tried the D shape one, but found it useless. Been looking at slightly bigger options. Any advice much appreciated, thanks ☺️

    I'm sorry you're not finding it comfortable. Personally, I always find smaller cars like this to be uncomfortable too. My daughter has a Citroen C1 that she just uses for work and it's terrible to sit in. Even worse if the seats don't have lumbar support. My current car has this and I find it helps a lot. 

    I don't have any experience with any of those but have you looked on amazon at any of the reviews? 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi Poppy,

    I have looked on Amazon. There’s a lot of different options. What lumbar support do you use in your car?

    Yes, there's a lot to choose from. My car seat has power adjustable lumbar support built in, it came as standard on my car.

    Hello @nathaliroma

    Sorry to hear the seats are not comfortable. As well as Amazon, I'd advise looking on YouTube as some car channels dedicate videos to things like seating support. Could help you with all the options :)
