Best colostomy bags


I'm a fairly new ostomate and have been practicing a lot with changing my bags. I've been using Hollister one piece bags for about 4-5 months but I have a hernia which makes the adhesive wrinkle and it doesn't last as long as I would like. I tried using a sample of the convex Sensura bag but it already leaked after the first day. Looking for recommendations about which bags seem to be the best. I already know I don't like the two-piece bags either because they come unsnapped. Any ideas?

I use Hollister and have a hernia, I get 4 days on a bag but could probably push it more if I wanted to. Do you use a flat bag or convex?

For the Hollister, I use a flat bag. I don't think they make an inward convex bag. They sent me a sample one that curves outwards. I like the Hollister but was just curious as to what others might recommend. I can get four and possibly five days from the Hollister too. I guess that's as good as it can get.

Not sure what "best" is, it's all kinda individual preference. I can't stand bags with no cloth/tape edge so I stick with Hollister, never an issue.


I have been using Coloplast Sensura Mio click two-piece convex for almost 3 years now with no issues. Good luck.

(PS my tummy is not flat but I find the wafers mold to it's shape.)

Hollister definitely makes convex pouches. I use the #8958, which is a soft convex, one piece, and I get five days wear time, and can stretch it to six. There is a hard convex also, but I find the soft convex is more comfortable and gives you the same protection.



Currently, I am using Coloplast Sensura Mio deep convex one piece. I also have a hernia, but the bags designed for that didn't work for me. I would try samples. I also use convex rings, Bravas, and Sure Seals. Good luck!
