I wear mid rise (Lee riders quite cheap at Walmart!) jeans and they cover up over the top of the bag, and no smooshing of anything even when the bag fills.
There is also a brand in the US "Not Your Daughter's Jeans" and I reckon they're pretty good too, they are a bit expensive, but come in all styles - low, mid, high rise - and if you find the right fit a good pair of jeans can last for years. Taking that into account I have enough jeans in my wardrobe to last until I'm 100!
The denim in "NYDJ" jeans is lovely and soft and they are actually made in America (something you don't find that often these days!).
Hope you find something to fit.
I lost my waistline way back when I was 15, had surgery and spent a year in a back brace due to osteoporosis. I developed a what they call now a "muffin top", so although my ostomy was placed well, I wasn't able to wear a shirt tucked in. I found that anytime I wore something belted, it would wedge between the skin and the flange ( which used to be plastic) and would cause a leak. My solution became wearing expandable or elastic waistbands. My Clothes aren't as tailored, or well fitted, but are a lot more comfortable and cause less anxiety. I also invested in well fitting stretchable underwear. When the waitline was too high, I spent the money to have them cut to my size. The panty holds the pouch close to the skin, and I've even used them under bathing suits. To the best of my knowledge no one has ever noticed a "bump", even if my pouch fills up. I think we're more aware of it than anyone else. Good luck to all.
I have purchased Comfees and found that their quality is great but the size must be too small. The product roles up..and drives me batty.
SO I have cut up pantyhose or leggings, I cut on an angle and tuck into my pants.
I have cut the crotch out of french cut or boy panties and used as a waist bando. My next plan is cut up a tank top. I don't want to invest in any more online products until I know my size and preference.
My next research and trial will be pouch covers. Any suggestions on the good and the bad?
I haven't tried them myself, but I am considering it after the discussion on here. I'm desperate to find a way to wear jeans again even though I am very short-waisted.

Thank you so much for that suggestion. I'm going to try it. By the way, you don't live that far away from me. Nice to hear from someone local.
use a stoma guard like the ones sold on amazon. this will prevent ballooning at the top if the waist of your jeans can fit suggly against the guard- it holds it in place
I have started wearing my husbands fitted boxer briefs. They sit just above the top of the bags so when my fitted jeans slip down through the day all I flash now is the Puma (Costco sells them for about $20 for a set of five) brand waist band which makes me feel more comfortable than if the top of my bag shows.
