I don't consider myself fat, or overweight... so it surprises me that I'm so uncomfortable in the Recaro's! They're way too agressive.
My wife had a Jetta GLI with Recaro's from the factory and they were MUCH more appropriate for the average user, still snug but not damn near race-car bolstering, like the ST.
