Don't worry, in a few months you'll have ample padding down there and the chair you are using will have completed the process of permanently conforming to every contour thus providing a womb-like cradle for your well endowed hiney.

Had a similar problem.

I am using a chair similar to your second image but mine has armrests.

I purchased a seat cushion off of Amazon that allows me to sit for hours very comfortably.

Not to firm, not to soft, just right!!!

You can find it here...

Amazon.com: BodySport Products Donut Cushion, Large - Color: Blue - 18" Diameter: Health & Personal Care

Back part of donut fits under the back of the chair. Just sit on the center.

I'm sitting on it right now!!! Mmmmmm!!!

Worth every penny!!!

I can relate to what your going through. I've tried 6 different chairs (including a $2500 leather one) and believe it or not settled on a $89.00 foamy plastic piece of crap from office max with an additional seat cushion, best investment in seating I have made, can sit in this thing all day and feel great. Anyway my advice would be to go around and sit in as many chairs as you can untill you find what really feels comfortable.

Spending loooong screen time hours helps me stay in rythem with the instruments i trade. For the most part (except when i am sleeping) i stay attentive to the markets and instrumets i trade 24/7. While trading i have a rotational routine that i do that works for me, i stretch at leat every hour, do a few yoga and pilates moves, go to my stationary bike and cycle for around 5 to 10 minutes every hour (brings down the chi and relaxes the shoulder) and not to forget BREATH. I have developed the awareness to routinely do this to prevent stres,s migraines and to achieve longevity.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

LOL, I wish.

Unfortunately, over the years, it is my "hiney" that has permanently conformed; I don't think I even look right standing up anymore.

Hmm, looks worth a try.

Maybe I should put one of those memory foam pillows under my bum since I don't use them for sleeping anyways.

Here are a few options that may help your rear end:

1. Buy an adjustable height desk so you can stand up part of the day (these are expensive though).
2. Buy a kneeling chair (aka knee chair) and swap it out with your regular chair every couple hours (I'm looking into this option myself).
3. Replace your chair with an exercise bike. A couple people on elite trader have done this -- very cool!


The kneeling chair would most likely help with better posture as I am currently slouching often, but I am worried it will cause a lot of pressure on the front thighs -have you used it before?

I have started to stand at my desk occasionally, but I should definitively remind myself to do it more often.

Yes I have and like them a lot. Yes, they are great for your posture, and yes, they do put pressure on knees/thighs after an extended period of time. The idea is to swap it out with your regular chair every couple hours. You should head to your local office supply to try one out before buying because they aren't for everyone.

Yeah long hours in the saddle are probably the number one ingredient to working towards profitability, watch and learn. I use to dream about candle sticks are graphs when I would sleep as I would spend from waking to sleeping hours in the saddle watching and tading the markets.

Still, my wallet has hurt alot more than my bum !
