I have only used the Brava strips. Some times I put them on right away other times when the edge starts to lift on the flange. Make sure your skin is dry. Use them when swimming also.

Irritate my skin like crazy.

The strips are blow out savers.  I used them everyday.  When yur barrier seal breaches, begins to leak, this strip prevents the spill.  Worth it. Plus a belt.  Nice combo. 

No skin issues. They are incredibly sticky.

Brava strips, never had an issue, work fantastically. Permanent part of my routine, I like the extra security.

I use either Brava or CeraPlus. I find them to be extremely useful. Especially when I mess up my bag when changing in a hurry. I think you will find them very helpful.

Hi Ron..How does that type or brand  differ from the c strips by Coloplast? Any advantage other than glowing in the dark pink?😄

I used to use the tape before I discovered the Brava strips, I cut one in half and use one piece top and bottom to stop the appliance starting to peel away in the shower etc, just a security thing for me.

Cool..the c form on those brava strips are tight.. I think using a four corner flange u need 4 pieces. These are straight strips, correct?  Like masking tape?.

I'm still hooked on the pink color though Ron mentioned. .

Yes the nexcare/micropore is straight, like masking tape, my bag has a round base so one brava "C" cut n half, top and bottom is good for me.

I use the brava extenders.  The tape on the barrier would come off of my skin regularly so I use them regularly.  Also I.  switched to a Hollister barrier with no tape and use the extenders.  By switching to the tapeless barrier the overall diameter is much smaller.  I am in the pool a lot and the extenders discolor after I get out of the water but they hold fast.

I have a square wafer with a tape boundary. The tape at the top of my wafer tends to come loose with any type of activity. To keep the tape on I use Brava Elastic Barrier Strips, Straight.
