I haven't felt a need to cover my bag.  However, when it is really hot, it sometimes wants to cling to my skin.  A newborn baby bib has worked well for me.  Just tie it around.  I don't like the ones with velcro.

Also, the soft baby washcolths that are two layers work also.  I cut a slit and put the bag between the two layers.  It is very soft, comfortable, and doesn't add much bulk.

Both protect my skin from the heat.  I haven't felt a need to beautify the bag.  

I am sure there will be lots more options presented.

The best thing(s) I bought for myself were from ostomy secrets website. They are Lycra type bands that have pockets. I bought the swim one & regular (more elastic) more hold for exercise etc. I still use the one for belly support now- months after my reversal. Kind of spendy but I could swim or wear jeans & have a low profile & not feel like anyone knew what I had going on "under it all" - I can sew but these were such a great design & I wanted them like yesterday when I found them. Best wishes.

Why not just make them yourself?

I'm not a seamstress myself but I make my own similar to a pattern from the below website.

After all, if you use your initiative, it is nothing harder than slapping a couple of scraps of material together.

Found a great company for pouch covers.....koolostomy.com The owner is an ostomate and makes a custom hand made cover. The material against the body is made of special material to help remove the sweat from the skin caused by the bag. I have ordered several and find them wonderful.

Hey Tania,

I wear a 2-piece Hollister New Image wafer and bag that is covered both sides in fabric, so I have no problems in anything sticking to me - plus, I don't have to ever see the "stuff" in my bag. It's just a suggestion to you. There's also another company website called: http://cspouchcovers.com where you can purchase tons of pouch covers with different designs (including all the holidays) for $14.95 each. I hope you find this helpful.
