Ostomy Wraps.

 
Posted by bukowski, on Wed Oct 24, 2018 10:56 pm

I am looking to get an ostomy wrap for both going to the gym and normal everyday wear, mostly to make things less visible. The 2 sites I've found are Ostomy Secrets and Pouch Wear. Can anyone give any suggestions, reviews, comments, complaints or any advice on what to get, avoid or anything? Thanks.

Hello bukowski. I have tried a few different ones and feel that they should be made to suit each individual. However, as that is not going to happen, I have alighted on a product by CUI which they will make to my specification. Even then, It's not quite what I would wish for.  Basically, I would not go for the tubular type

 because after a few washes they stretch and become saggy and useless. I prefer the ones which have the velcro fasteners, where the adjustment is made as I put it on. This way, it allows for the natural expansion and contraction of the tummy area without having to chnage the whole device.  Also, I found that the wider ones, which go right up to the ribcage, only feel okay whlle I'm standing bolt-upright. The slightest bend or sitting position make it uncomfortable and it aggravates my hiatus hernia. My solution to this has been to fold the belt over so that it is narrower but gives more support over the stoma.

I hope ths helps.

Best wishes Bill

I use a tummy sleeve, you get them at maternity stores, about $20.00. It lasts quite awhile before it stretches out.

I have several of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VS1LPA4/ They work fairly well, though they seem to want to unravel a bit. I am looking for something tighter, though.

These are the ones I've used since my surgery almost 2 years ago.  They are kind of my security blanket.  If you order from Ostomysecrets, use coupon code THANKYOU25 for 25% off your order.

I use a wrap from Comfizz.com (https://comfizz.com/product/7waistband-unisex-level1/). If you wash it and then just let it air dry, it lasts a long time without getting stretched out. Good luck!

Hi there, look at Comfizz they do wraps different widths and different supports. I use them and they’re supportive without stopping the stoma flow. Good luck !

My husband uses a Stealth Belt, cost around $99, he even wears it to bed. He states it gives him support and he doesn't have to worry about the bag pulling in the wafer

What is did was to buy a two size too small compression t shirt. And just cut the arms off. I wear it like a girdle and it works like a champ. 

I work out everyday. 30 minutes on the arc trainer and tons of weights. It works Like a champ. I do have a few of them.
