I compensated by turning the CARMICHALE top around, since I don't sit in the middle, the backside is still somewhat fresh. Collapsing the base of the throne, which raises the post height a little is my next 'go to' fix when I need it, was having to do that with the conventional tops I was using b/f CARMICHALE.

ALL foam compresses over time, CARMICHALE not immune, tho when this happens comfort still remains, comfort not even possible with conventional tops.
You scared me when I read those first few lines. I had a Pork Pie throne that compressed like that and eventually I was just sitting on the board or whatever they use. That's my biggest issue w/ thrones is them giving out. Good to know the Carmichael's comfort stays in tact.
