I found a site where you can order ostomy supplies, belts, almost anything to do with an ostomy and you only pay shipping. Awesome site, they are based out of Florida. There web site link is as follows.... ostogroup.com and their phone number is  1-877-678-6690. I know you asked for a way to make the belt yourself but why not get one that you know will fit right and cost under $5.00. Good luck. Oh there supplies are donated so they might not have exactly what you are looking for but if you give them a call they will help you find what you need.

My wonderful wife makes a pouch holder for me that really works well to hold it in place. She takes the elastic band from my old brief underwear (cuts off the fabric to just leave the band), and sews a bag on to the front of it made out of an old handkerchief. The bag is just large enough to tuck the end of the pouch into. As the pouch fills up, it is supported by the bag so it just doesn't hang loose. These are not real fancy and very simple to make. What they are is a real comfort to wear and an easy way to keep the pouch separated from your skin. Great in hot weather.
I've tried a few of the fancy (and expensive) belts I've found on the internet but I always go back to the home made ones because they are more comfortable.
She is working on a new design using old boxer shorts to achieve the same goal. Only problem is....I don't wear boxer shorts!

Kellie (or anyone)

what size belly bands would a guy buy. I checked into this once on Amazon.com and could not decide what size to get. They do not state them in "inches", only in trimester. I am about 33-34" waste.

Thanks

They have bands for pregnant women for abdominal support that are the same idea as a tube top, there are some online called Belly Bands (I think) and I don't know if you have Target stores, but they have some that are cheaper and work the same. They come in black, white, and nude and look like you are just layering with a camisole or something. They are nice cause they help to conceal your bag without restricting the flow of output. Hope this helps you some!!

Good Luck,
Kellie
