Plastic to foam

I see a few ways to do this but I wanted to see what the forum recommends for this task.

I am wanting to replace this hard plastic section with foam. I want to keep the same measurements and detail but hopefully gain more mobility.

Should I cut the sections out first and then line it in foam, or try and make a copy first on foam before cutting it out?

Thoughts?

It's likely easier to make a tape pattern to get all the shapes and details, lay it flat and add any darts that are needed, double check your pattern and then cut out the offending pieces from the original.
