Drivers Seat discomfort

2012 Focus SE, A/T, 201a package.

I have found the drivers seat bottom to cause pain after 15 or minutes of driving. specifically, pressure points on the outter thigh. It appears to be due to the underlying metal seat frame or lack of padding. Anyone else have this issue?

I'm 6 foot, 1 inch tall, 185 pounds, and I take a 34 x 34 pants. So, I'm not out of the norm and the seat should be OK for my size.

Due to the foot rest (left leg), my legs do splay a bit but, no more than they did with my previous Toyota's and Mazda's. The right leg tends to rest against the center dash. This is my first Ford. I'm hoping this is an issue which is known and has a resolution. I have less than 400 miles on the car and can't drive it this way for any meaningful distance.
