Question seat cover option for improved cushioning

Can anyone recommend, review, or comment on this as a potential cushioning solution. The beige color looks to be a close match to my interior. More than anything, I'm interested in how well it fits. I know it doesn't have to be an exact fit but much too big or much to small would be no good:

Can't do that but have a suggestion for you.

Get a solid block of firm foam.
Adjust to size/style you want.
Add cover.

Use as temporary solution (to make sure its right).
If your happy, you now have measurements to ask any seller to compare to.

That is a good idea. Over the past couple of seasons I've come to realize my issue is all about cushioning and height. The front to rear travel isn't a problem even though I am 6'1" (1.82 meters) tall. I need more cushioning below. I recently tried outdoor furniture cushions. I was surprised how close a fit the standard outdoor armchair bottom cushion is. The problem with them is they don't last more than one season (that is about 6 months in central Indiana) before they are pancake flat. Memory foam would solve that problem, which is in line with your recommendation. I already know the right size. For $20 I will give the ebay one a go. If I don't like it I will bring it to Goodwill and claim a tax deduction
