Donated Comfizz Stoma Support Underwear, what should I do?

Tue Aug 04, 2009 7:04 am
"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."
Hi Folks, i have been donated over 1000 pairs of Comfizz stoma support underware, i am at a loss as to what i should do with them.

There are Mens unisex boxers M/L and L/XL, and ladies briefs M/L and L/XL, both styles come in black and white, all new still in their packages and they are actually very very comfy lol. (i'm test driving a pair now lol).

Now in my opinion they do not fall under the catagory of "emergency supplies" that the foundation sends out to folks, so i am really stuck as to what to do with them ?

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Needless to say, that if anyone wishes a few of these pretty darn excellent underware, i would be more than happy to send them out to you, although perhaps some arrangement may need to be discussed about postage fees. i will send them worldwide.

You can view the undergarments at http://www.stomawear.uk.com/index.htm

p.s. if you are unable to contact me on this site, you can contact me on www.thelifegoesonfoundation.org.uk

Hi Steve,

I'll vouch for the support pants as comfortable, supportive and maybe even preventative against hernias. I don't need any because in Australia ostomates are entitled to six pairs per year. I highly recommend them. Cheers Julie

Hi Julie, yeh it's the same in the U.K we get them on prescription also, i'm not sure of how many we are entitled to a year tho.

But yeh, they are remakably comfy actually, i test drove a pair yeaterday, and i really like the way they just hug to you, and the high waist band also, normaly i dont go in for things like that, yesterday i was wearing a thin vest(singlet) and a kinda shortish tshirt, now normally when i look down i can usually see a wee outline of the top of my pouch and perhaps hear the odd rustle of plastic.

Not with these babies, lol, as soon as i put them on, i thought , yup these are pretty cool lol.

Anyway julie,take care, chat soon.

Hi , I think its great that you have people who are interested in the underwear I also think as the underwear can be so expensive as we all know if people wanted to send your foundation a small donation would be a really good idea just a thought. Pippa
