I don't know if you've tried the Comfizz underwear or not yet, they are amazing, once you've tried them i doubt you will go back to conventional underwear.

A few moths back Comfizz donated me 1,200 pairs of ostomy underwear to give to away to folks, so if you like, i've still got about 900 pairs left. i can send you over a half dozon or so courtesy of the foundation.

I can vouch for the underwear, it is great, dead comfy, and the old stuff they have given the foundation is better than their 'new model', don't know why they bothered changing it!!!! Thanks Steve xx

Are these available for men and women.  I am male with a right side ostomy.  I would be interested in trying these if you still have some.  I have been using ostomy secrets and they have a great product at a fair price, but I am quickly running out of money.  I am a firm believer in sample, sample, sample.  I do not know how you get address, etc. if you have any left.  I only weigh 169 but after my belt, etc I wear a 38-40.

I still wear my jeans hanging half way down my arse with my stoma. I find it more comfortable and with only having it done recently, more secure knowing I can see how full it is.

When you get older and still wear jeans with a stoma you may want to invest in a pair of suspenders. They are called Braces in the UK .They let you buy your pants a size bigger so it does not push on the stoma. I like the ones with TRIGGERS {that is the metal clips that clip into the belt loops. You can find them but all the ones i have ordered from the INTERNET  are to big and wide. I ordered these thin ones with the  button hole type and went to the hardware store and bought some Triggers and put them on myself. They are light and i think cool. I have been wearing them for a few years now and so people would not know me with out them.

My stoma is in the way of shirts and sometimes bras, it's really high up right now and I'm short waisted, but I would think that for people with lower down stomas, wearing a longer shirt would help with bag coverage. My stoma is supposed to be temporary, but I don't want to reverse it, I want it moved to the sigmoid which happily is an option for me–and I like my pants right around my hips, and in the future I plan to let the bag hang out the bottom of my shirt and wear a bag cover that makes it look like a little change purse or fanny pack, or if not precisely that then it will still look pretty. I love to sew by hand with needle and thread and I plan to make my own covers, a whole wardrobe of them made of fabric scraps from the ends they have left at the fabric store, and from old clothes I can't wear anymore. I can see this being an option more for women than for me, although anyone who wants to could do it.

Elli Bean - you answered my question from the other forum post.  When you have your colostomy relocated to the sigmoid, you can irrigate and you may very gain good control of your BMs.  Then you can wear a cap, patch, small closed mini-pouch or even this new thing from Convatec - Vitalia, I think it is called.    Smile

You are such a sweetie!

hi all

well got to admit....the days have gone where my little g strings and girls boxers were in my top drawer. rach i have had some of those knickers you speak of....i call them my bridgett jones pants...for obvious reasons...can see why you wear them.Ii go to marks now and buy lace shorts...but buy them the next size up which makes then come a little higher which is just perfect for my stoma.
As for jeans, which i wear most of the time, i do wear high wasted....i have tried low waisted but they tend to fit right through the middle of my bag which personally i dont find comfortable

But where to do keep the bag so it can fill up but not POP..? ugh
I've been living in sweat pants..:

I had the same issue with finding jeans.  My stoma is in an odd spot.  Some real nice ladies on here recommended maternity jeans.  I tried it and I love them.  The expandable stretchy top hugs the bag nicely and they are not tight.  With a little longer shirt over them, not a soul knows.  Best part is that I can go to the thrift shop and pay a third of what new ones would cost.

I have found the Gloria Vanderbilt Amanda Jeans fit real well for me. They have high wasted and these jeans have a stretch to them. I love them. I get mine at Kohl's. I am sure you can find them on line. 

Hope that helps.

I found a pair of post maternity jeans called Bounce Back.  They have a stretchy panel on the top but it is not as lose as regular maternity jeans.  They are comfortable but hold you in a little bit more.  I really like them.
