I'm 6' and 225. I can see how you larger guys would hate these seats as it's already tight at my weight/size.

Get less fat.... I need to too. I'm 6'6 and 275. Adjust them and try new positions. They do break in to a degree. I found what works for me and one of the clues is to make sure your butt is back in the seat properly as well. That helped me a lot for legroom working the clutch.

I'm 6'7" with a 38" inseam, but only 200lbs. I find the thigh bolsters are too tight and it feels like I'm sitting on top of them because I sit with my legs splayed out. It got very uncomfortable. The thigh bolster shape is maintained on each side by a metal rod formed in half a circle and welded to the seat frame. I took the drivers seat out, pulled the lower seat cushion up and bent the loops out. That helped a fair bit.

This is exactly right. The width is too tight.

Sucks to hear. The standard SS seats are some of the most comfortable seats I’ve sat in as far as vehicles go. Had a few long trips and no issues.

I had a 18 1LE and 18 ZL1. Never really paid attention I guess and thought the seats were the same. I have a 21 1LE on order, so the seats are different? 6-06 and 200 pds. I fit fine in both 18's and my 19 C7 Grand Sport.

6'1" and 220#
Snug fit and can get a little dead left leg after several hours if I don't get out and walk around some.

Otherwise the seats are awesome, you sit in them not on them.

wow, I wish I was as small as the rest of you "big guys". I'm 5'11", sometimes I feel that wide too, and other than my ass being too big and causing headroom issues I'm comfortable in the seats.

Have you tried a local automotive upholstery shop to modify the seat? It will be be custom-tailored for your man legs and way less expensive than buying an SS seat.
