Isnt the base of the hesdrest formed to meet the seat at a specific angle? Any bend would make the fit appearance bother me.

You'll have to be the judge over what you can live with. Here's what it would look like.

The front passenger seat and the driver and passenger side in the rear is where everyone is having issues at.
The front passenger seat your passenger can adjust.

Keep in mind there are 12 ways of adjusting:

The #1 and #2 buttons are fairly straightforward and you can see the change easily. #3 lumbar adjustment is not quite intuitive and I found the below video helpful to explain how it works:

Unfortunately nothing much you can do about the rear. Would be helpful to know what version you had. Tesla did revise the rear seat cushions in the past, so might be possible to swap them. Otherwise maybe try one of those add-on seat cushions, but you would need to first determine specifically what is causing the discomfort (the bottom part, the seat back, the headrest, or somewhere else?).
