After struggling to remove the tight fitting foam pieces from my Ikea Poang chair and ottoman cushions for washing and to make a pattern, I thought I'd pass along my tip for getting foam cushions back into tight zippered compartments: I cover the foam with old, worn-out percale sheets. I just serge them on. I don't get fancy. The slippery sheet makes it easier to slide the foam piece into a tight cushion cover and the serged seam provides something to grab hold of to pull them out of a tight fitting cushion cover without adding bulk. I suspect old satin sheets would also work, but, uh, I've never owned any satin sheets.

Good Idea. In an emergency, I've used plastic dry cleaner bags to get the foam in, and then pulled it out.

That is a great idea, I just cover the foam with a drycleaner bag, then I pullt out the bag before I zip up the cover.

I've done this and it works great. Bought the sheets at a goodwill store for under $3.
