How long for the Sport seats to "break in" ?

I've had my truck for a month now. Love it except for the sport seats. The bottom seems a little narrow. The side bolsters tend to dig into my legs.
My ass ain't that big either. I'm average height and weight.

I've got the seat back adjusted, so that is good to go.
I'm just wondering how long until the bottom softens up.

So for those with the sport seats, how long 'til they're broken in ?

I haven't really noticed a change in mine in 6 months that I've owned my truck.

I'm 6' and 185 lbs. Maybe it's just my old bony ass. The seats seem a little narrow.
Time will tell. If not, I'll look into some aftermarket seats perhaps.

The seats are narrow, no doubt in my mind. I've ridden in trucks with the standard SR5 seats and you can tell the difference. Remember these are Japanese trucks where the average size isn't very big.

They are more like guide lines.

I am a larger guy and I don't feel stuffed in?? I am a bit larger too 6'5" 250lbs. I actually like the amount of room overall. It lets the seat back so far I cannot even drive it all the way back, great truck for road sex, plenty of wiggle room. Yea but the seats are very comfortable, do you have a wide body perhaps? JOE>

Narrow?
Yea.. your ass isn't as bony as you think it its.. ha if its anything like the real toyotas used to be they look and feel the same at mile 25 and 250k

I am a medium frame 6'2" 36 inch waist makes me look fatish...
When I was test driving the car I remember saying to the salesman.. "if I was any bigger these seats would be small, but instead they're just sporty".
THey're sport seats, they're supposed to be restrictive.. if they are too restrictive to you... you can try the cheap seats. You'll get a table out of it too. Careful though, all the wiring and all that comes with a modern air bag laden seat....
They're in-between ford sucky bolstered turds and gm's gargantuan platforms..

nothing is japanese about it... made solely in/for america and friends since 2005. sport seats are designed to be restrictive.

im not trying to imply anything about you or the op... but i dont think we should be building cars for obese america yet... im described as huge by my coworkers... t fit in between the bolsters as design intended.

+1 - 6'3" 220lbs. The truck is super roomy compared to my old 2000 Tacoma PreRunner. This is the first car I've owned where I have to pull the seat forward to reach the pedals I think the seats are restrictive too, but, I think that's the point of them...keeps you in place while bounding down dirt roads...

One last time....

I'm not a big guy or a small guy. Medium.
Yes the sport seats are narrow. I Knew that when I bought the truck. I know the difference with the SR5 seats too. 7 test drives in different models. Got it.

I'm not really complaining as such. Just noticing that the seats are narrow for my butt. Legs actually, outer thighs. My butt sits just fine. It's just that NEW seats haven't yet compressed / softened to fit. I'm guessing they will over time. Or I'll get used to the way they feel.

My truck is an '06 and it feels just like an '11. I don't think they break in much if at all..

I agree with you 100%. I find these sport seats to dig into my thighs. I think it has actually cause some pain in my ass .. I was thinking of using some soft of seat pad to help even the seat out ... I miss the flat bench of my '95 .. I almost wish I could swap my sport seat for a non sport seat and still have it match the rest of the truck.
