Ostomy belt


Hey y'all! I like to ask a question about the ostomy belt. Does anyone have any issues with theirs that clips on to the waffer? My belt on the single layer side always rolls up becomes deformed and digs into my side. On the double layer side it does not happen. Thanks

What brand are you using? The different brands couple to the bag/wafer differently. I use a Hollister system, my belt connects to tabs on the sides of the flange attached to the bag itself. I don't use a belt very often, but have never had a problem with it. Make sure your belt is not adjusted too tightly, I've heard of over tightening the belt causing flange coupling issues.


I use Hollister.


I keep mine fairly loose, but have heard others have had similar issue.


I use two belts and used to have this problem. Then I made a sleeve for the belts to go inside and this resolved the problem. The belts are obviously not made firm enough to remain stable when they are a single strand. when they are double, or in a sleeve they seem to be okay. also, they get worse as they age! come to think of it - so do I.

Best wishes



Use a 4" belt that just fits over the wafer.


Yep, nu hope 4” belts. Good for intimacy! Also for support and keeping prolapsed stoma in place!

How old is the belt or how long have you had it on? The older the belt the more likely it will fold, also the longer you ware it the more likely it will fold. Time for a new one or a clean one.


It’s 4 years old. Yes, time for new one, been life saver!


Where do you get a 4 in one..thanks
