with your uniform, can you do suspenders?
My placement is at a good point below my belt line, so i can keep it in my pants as it were

Frankly, I'm more a nudist and finally got into commando - no undies - once I was use to the feeling of a full bag and when I needed to empty it. Hope this helps. Take care!!! Tom
I find yoga pants with the turn down top the best...I leave the top up instead of folding it downHope this helps... Ii buy larger sizes too for extra comfort
|So I've never had it explained to me, and it makes me feel a little foolish for having to ask, but how do you manage wearing pants with a bag? I always wind up leaving my bag to hang outside my pants because I keep worrying that it'll fill up too fast and burst if I tuck it into my pants--since it wouldn't be able to drain into the lower part of the bag. Recently I've been wearing longer shirts and can tuck the end up into the top of my pants, but it still hangs down and can be seen from time to time. I mostly have jeans, and when I work, sweats won't exactly be an option with my uniform. So... Help please? Haha.|
I know the problem. I had a colostomy 3 years ago and have pretty much given up wearing normal trousers (Pants?) with a belt. I wear high waisted trousers with braces, with shirt on top or bib and brace dungarees for work...... totally comfortable and with the bag tucked away out of sight it's out of mind. It works for me.
These are what I wear:
they're pricey but you can get similar things from vintage shops/ebay etc.
As for shirts, I wear long ones with straight tails and don't tuck them in. Normally the pouch/bag is covered but sometimes the pouch becomes visible. Not a big deal.
2. You can get (depending on your location, I'm in UK) underwear on prescription which has a pouch inside to support the bag.
Hope this helps
Never feel daft asking questions, unless you ask how will you get the answer! We are all in the same boat and will all ask questions or try to give answers at some point
Best of luck to ya,
You lucky boy! So, you get to wear a uniform (so did I, before I retired) but MY uniform was surgical scrubs and the tops of those may be worn tucked or untucked. Does your uniform require that you wear your shirt tucked in? Here's an idea (I do this with MY shirts that I tuck in - mostly T-shirts or undershirts). cut a slit in the shirt and pull the bag through the slit so it hangs on the outside. If it HAS to be covered wear a jacket or sweater over it. But why in the world would it have to be covered? It is not as if you were walking around with your penis hanging out. Why in the world would you (or anyone, for that matter) be embarrassed by a visible ostomy bag? You do know, don't you, that bags are available with nice tan covers (which are NOT transparent) so that the public does not need to see what is IN that bag.
That other suggestion I saw here about using irrigation is another great idea, though I've never felt the need to try it. But I do know of ostomates who do irrigate and they seem really pleased with the results.
