Pain in the...

I recently lost a significant amount of weight, and am smaller than I've been in about 20 years. As a result, of what I assume is a combination of weight loss and aging, I have little padding on my butt. As a result, my sacrum and tail bone hurt whenever I sit on anything somewhat hard for any length of time - like - 10 minutes!

And when I say 'hard', I include things like, padded folding chairs, or even a couch with a thinnish couch cushion.
1) Is this a common thing among smaller people? Or older people?
2) What do people do about this? Is there some sort of product I should buy or use? Strategies for sitting through meetings and other seated events, and for lying in the bathtub without getting a but ache?
Asking anon because I don't really feel comfortable talking about my body in detail here!
