 How does a soft toric contact lens work

Can anyone here explain to me how a soft toric contact lens (for
astigmatism) works? I really have no exact idea but I guess that the
soft contact lens has to be thicker or thinner at certain places so
that it can correct the astigmatism. But since a soft contact lens
doesn't move as easily on the eye as rigid contact lenses do, how does
the thicker or thinner part find its right place? I mean how has a soft
toric contact lens to be placed on the eye, so that the special "toric"
part is at the right place.

I hope anyone here understands what I would like to know. I am from
Germany and it's is pretty difficult for me to explain things about
contact lenses in English.

It would be great if you could send a copy of your reply to

partially and I really don't want to miss any answers.
