I had to laugh when I read the title of the post.  The first thought that comes to my mind when seeing the word holiday is Christmas time.  I had visions of some Stanta Claus themed swim wear.

Anyway, I'm not sure what style you are looking for or how far above the waist you need to cover.  That being said, triathlon shorts may be an option.  They are made to swim in and have a higher waist band than standard swim suits.  They cover my stoma and pouch no problem.(See pics in my profile for an example of what I'm talking about)  They do come with a small pad for biking which could be easily removed with a seam ripper.

Coming from Ireland I would think if you Google COMFIZZ as I buy underware from them that are made especially for folks with stomas, have a high waist and the legs are long enough to curl up and hold your pouch clip, matter of fact these could also be used for swimwear, The downside they have no crotch but can easily be pulled aside to pee. These underware were made especially for ostimates and help keep an hernia from growing too large, worth looking into, they are an Irish company and any questions you have they are happy to answer, Ed

Thanks Noel
