Thank you Terry, I have my 40 year high school reunion this weekend and was wondering what to wear that would be comfortable and undetectable of my bag. I do like the idea of a Spanx, that way I could wear a comfortable dress and not worry about anything around my waist. 😁
I have had my ostomy for 4 years. Most of my regular clothes still work. But I've mostly worn jeans that sit just below my waist and just above my ostomy. I also limit myself to longer and looser tops.
I have found underwear that works great for me made by Jockey.
They have a wide 4" spandex waist band that holds my bag tightly against my body without binding or causing " muffin top". You can find them at Walmart.
I too wore loose stretchy pants for a long time as I am a caretaker for my mom and don't need to leave the house for work. I now suspect that the lack of support may have lead to my hernia growing. Maybe ask your nuse about that.
