Question DetailsAsked on 9/9/2020

Fairly new (cheap) couch, gaps between cushions when you sit down. So uncomfortable! Any way to fix?

My couch is a basic couch from Jerome's, less than 2 years old ("Albany" is the model). The seat cushions are listed as "1.8 high density foam" and upholstery is still taught with no "butt imprint" or baggy fabric. Inside seat cushions, foam looks brand new. The springs are listed as "sinuous springs" and seem fine visibly. However, the couch gets more uncomfortable every day. When you sit, 2-3 inch gaps between seat cushions mean your butt hits the springs, and the cushions have no loft or comfort. We had a 15 year old beat-up sectional that was FAR more comfortable! Multiple DIY solutions call for adding batting or foam to the existing seat cushion foam, or replacing foam/batting entirely. The upholstery has a small cushion sear tear and one cushion zipper came unstitched and broke already, so I'm worried that "overstuffing" the cushions might cause them to burst. Budget is a concern, that's why I bought a cheap couch to begin with :(
