OldGal and I recently had the hinge break on our old seat, so off we went to Lowe's for a new one. After looking at all the options we found one plain white one off in the corner of the display. When I looked closer I realized that it was padded. Yep, that's right, a padded toilet seat. Took it home and found that it was easy to install and talk about comfort? Such luxury as you can't imagine if you've never tried one.
