I cannot seem to get them on straight. One side is on OK and the other is off the mark, not even touching the barrier. Do you stand up, sit down, or lay down? Maybe just get my helper.

Thanks

Hey X, I stand and use a magnifying mirror.  Not perfect but I guess we're still learning.

Good luck,

What mark? Are you talking about the strips used outside of the barrier that is adhered to the skin? If so, I use them also and just wing it by feel.

I can't do it by myself. I have a helper. Which is restricting.

I have a huge mirror in the bathroom that I just look at or just look down moving the pouch out of the side I work on. It does not have to be perfect. At least touching all around the edge of the outside barrier and your skin.

Ok, all you have to do is read the instructions. You do not take all the backing off. I just take the small one off and place it, then remove the other piece of backing and lay it on. Easy peasy.
