Posted by #1gran, on Sun Dec 27, 2009 10:46 am
So for all af the female OstoMates out there,how hard is it to find a pair of jeans.I went boxing day shopping wiyh my 24 year old daughter and 2 of her friends(the same age of my daughter)we had a great time but when we tried on jeans(14.00 a pair)I was so upset that all that they make are low rise jeans.Well when you have a stoma that is higher then where the jeans come its not very attractive.I woul like to hear your solutions to this problem if you have it.

In the UK it is definitely Marks and Spencer's! May be able to access them online if you cannot get them over there .... have ones that rest on the waist and are great for supporting hernias too!

Gran,     

            well, for me, I wear a "low mid rise". I can't do the "mom jean" thing, but these are low enough to be figure flattering but high enough to keep my ostomy from popping ( I almost typed "pooping, habit I guess, lol. ) out all over the place. My appliance pokes out the top but i could care less if someone can see it below my clothing. They sit right below your belly button. Old Navy sells some , you can go online if need be.
I'm here to MYSELF confortable & happy...not everyone else!!!!  Smile   Had to get that out there.  (ok, this highlighting thing is driving me nuts)

Have a great day!! Hannah

dang highlighted crap

Have had luck with Gap-and for more money-a great line called Not Your Daughters Jeans. They even have "give" ( some lycra, I think). I wear jeans every day and I like the ones that come up to the waist, but are not old lady jeans--even tho I am an old lady!!!

I am out dancing all the time.  I see many ladies young and old that wear jeans that are not low cut.
I think many of the jeans women wear maybe mens, but who cares.  Women have been wearing mens jeans for years.  As a matter of fact I know several couples where the lady "wears the pants' in the family.
Had to throw that in.

I have always like to wear my jeans tight.  with a stoma it's almost impossible.  My waist or belt line was right dead on my stoma.

i wondered how long till this drew a male reply.... see we males think differently. let me explain our thought process.
1: need jeans

2: what are the "male" options....wrangler...levi`s

3:we wont consider the host of other brands as they are designed for "preppy guys", city boys and communist/democrats

4: levi`s...made on the left coast by a bunch of pot smokin 60`s throw backs who worship satan.

5: wrangler.....official jeans of the pba..pro bullriders association

6: check out in lane 14 at wal-mart...total elapsed "in store time" 6 mins... total items purchased 3... jeans, roll of copenhagen and box of shotgun shells............

god it is so easy being a man!!! peace ladies

Hey all, sorry, but i have to put my 2 bits worth in here, i wear jeans all the time, with a belt and also at one time with 2 ostomies, a colo and a uro, my stomas are on my belt line and never am i bothered by them in that way, i use a soft canvas belt with a grip buckle, you know the ones that clip over and grip the belt so it's easy to adjust a fraction when too tight and generally go for jeans designs that have a softer waistline.

None of my jeans are marketed as jeans for 'preppy guys', city boys, communists or democrats and resent the offensive remarks made by the last post about individuals who chose to wear more comfortable brands as wearing 'non male' jeans. I am wearing a pair of Osaka Tiger's at the moment, does that mean i am 'non male' or one of the insulting labels/catagories mentioned in the last post?

I think the only comment i can agree with is 'we males think differently' granted that's true, we all think differently, i for one would never place people into derogatory named groups, speak for every male on the planet or go to a supermarket to by weapons, but hey that's just me....

Oh and for the record Levi Jeans were not made on the west coast by pot smoking satan worshippers, and were actually created by one Leob Stauss in New York in 1850, granted he set up bussiness in the west coast to capitalise on the gold rush, but he actually died in 1902, way before the 60's and Wrangler jeans is actually the official jeans of the Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association.

Sorry about that, but when i read the absolute tripe like that written in the last post, i have to come on a declare that not all males are idiots.x

Gentlemen, gentlemen...let's not squabble here, I shall be the clear head ...I will correct you BOTH...It's the Professional Bull Riders  ( PBR for short ) then there is the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association and there is also a Professional Rodeo Cowgirl Association...just FYI

I'll also add that MMSH was very funny, it made me laugh out loud, actually.

For the record, MMSH was kidding, unless you fit into one of the categories he wrote about; how could you get offended? ARE you a satan worshipper? Are you a leftist, communist democrat? Are you a 60's throw back hippie?
THEN WHO GIVES A SHIT??
My point being, we all have so much difficult bullshit to deal with on a daily basis, why fuss about a few joking words on a forum. Seriously, I am so F***ing sick to death of everyone getting so offended at the dumbest shit. Let it go and lets all have a good time.

LET'S HUG IT OUT BOYS....

Hi Ya Sweede,  I think I speak for most on this forum when I say MMSH has never set out to deliberately put someone down, he has a great sense of humor, maybe a little twisted like my own, but never in a way to make someone take it seriously. Happy Hollidays, Ed

Yes!! you've hit the nail on the head there Txgirl, i do fit into some catagories mentioned, whats deemed funny to some, may be unfunny to others. and your right, perhaps i shouldn't fuss whilst people are making jokes at the expense of others.

If i am not in a catagory written about, how could i get offended?,  are you serious? i was out n about today and had to change my pouch in a public toilet, written on the wall was a racist comment, should i not as you put it "give a shit"?, i mean i'm not black or anything.
Perhaps maybe that i shouldn't have scribbled it out and let other people read it?

The whole Wrangler issue is petty, i'll be the first to admit that lol, but Wrangler Jeans becoming the official jeans of the Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association in '74 is correct i'm afraid,and proudly displayed on their website too.

Perhaps i'm having a bad day, maybe feeling a bit touchy or something, but i do stand my ground, if yer is gonna to sling around non inclusive labels such as those, you have to expect a wee bit of comeback, i mean it sounds as if he got those terminologies from a propaganda leaflet or something.

Anyways, hugging it out is always a good option, keep yer shotgun at home tho.x

As an after thought, sorry folks, i'm an idiot....I actually came here to talk about jeans lol,

  #1Gran, i get asked this alot over at the foundation and it seems that high waisted jeans are back in fashion, well over here in the UK that is, they are all the rage over here, it's called the Kate Moss look, tagged as such for her recent catwalk appearences wearing them.

I don't know if the fashion has hit Canada yet, but all the major clothing shops over here are stocking them, and ship them out online, i've seen many pairs with stretchy type material as waistbands also, in fact most modern brands of male jeans are stocking semi-high waisted ranges now. Like i said earlier i am wearing Osaka Tiger jeans at the moment, they are semi-high waisted and super comfortable, sadly i doubt Levi or Wrangler stock such ranges.

Anyway, couple that with a pair of Comfizz ostomy underwear, your pretty much as safe as houses, you can even play a game of Twister without anything peeking lol. 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.

So yeh, the Uk shopping outlets online and Comfizz ostomy underwear, thats my solution lol,
apologies for the for ranting on your thread.x

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

What he said was NOT a racist comment.
There is a HUGE difference between someone calling a person racist names and MMSH poking fun of when and where Levi's originated. The fact of the matter is, you called him an idiot at the end of your post, saying, you wanted to show that "all men are not idiots". Is that not supposed to be offensive??
You are the pot calling the kettle black.

I am thankful to you for getting offended in the puplic restroom over a racist comment, as you should but please, do NOT muddy the waters on the 2 issues. It is NOT the same thing.

Like I said, I am sick to death of people taking every single thing other people say so seriously and the ones who do that are making it worse. It's those people who turn one topic offensive or derogitory when it never was in the first place!!!

Hey Lottagelady,

Awh shucks!, you caught me all off guard there lol,  there's me fighting my corner n all and you come in with a sweet comment like that, i'm gonna get mauled in here now hehe.

Oh by the way, i haven't cashed your donation yet, i have a wee pile of cheques here that i was going to take to the bank before X-mas but what with the all the snow and ice we're having up here, it looks like i won't be going anywhere now until after the new year.

Once again many thanks.xxx

P.s
Have't tried the new model, don't think i want to from what you told me, looks like they did give the foundation all the good stuff lol.x
