A$$ prints on my seats?! SMH

So before everyone laughs, I only weigh 150 soaking wet. For whatever reason, I see my skinny azz prints on my seat. Does anyone know how to get rid of this? I was thinking about an upholstery shop to maybe remove the leather and stretch back strait? To me, this is an eye sore. I think it is from me being boney and wearing jeans.

it's natural because the leather is so thick and the foam underneath is so soft. An upholstery shop can rebuild the foam on the bottom of the seat and might be able to stretch the leather but it might cost a bit of money.

If you add foam it will be noticed the extra padding , but yes I own a glass/ upholstery shop,So I can say this with 100% . The only way to repair this cover is to undue the cover and take the cushion seams apart and sew it and pull the stretch lines out , but even that will only take out 80-90% of it, if it really bothers you replace the cover with a new one

Ok, so I'm thinking...The seat portion would be sold somewhere? Depending on price, I would consider. What do you think?

I wouldn't install a new leather cover. You're car is an 06 and it shows, the new leather will look very out of place.
