Default Better seats for 2015 WRX

Hi, I had a 2001 Slugeye WRX and recently upgraded to a 2015 WRX. Much better motor and turbo but the recaro seats are gone and I move about too much when cornering. The lower body is held in place by the lower bolsters but the upper body just moves all over the place.
I have been looking at alternatives on the net and youtube but I want to actually sit in the seat before I buy, if possible.
Maybe a shoulder harness type seat belt would be an option.

Sitting a bit lower in the car would be good also.
I could also go for some secondhand wrx/sti seats as long as they hold my upper body in place better.
Thanks for any suggestions or ideas, especially places in Perth to go to try alternatives.

Ok, an update for those who may be interested. I didn't want to risk going with a seat I had only seen on the net so I rang Doug at S-Technic who has always been very helpful and he suggested I could take the car to a local motor trimmers to see what they could do to upgrade the current seat. So I went to Canning Motor Trimmers (one of his suggestions) and they did a brilliant job of improving the bolsters in the seat.
Now it holds like the old recaro seats in the previous wrx did, no more moving about in corners.
Many thanks to Doug and Mark at Canning Motor Trimmers.
