The R200's are pretty wide too. I don't know how wide the Shimano lever's you have are. The R200's are about as wide as my bar is when the bar is wrapped in thick gel tape.
Of course, the unwritten rules of Bike Forums require me to suggest that your problem is actually with bike fit and not equipment. It's standard practice whenever someone says they aren't comfortable. It may also be true.
