hi all first post so please be kind.

prior to surgery in sept 18 i was previously a bit of a closet naturist. since surgery which has knocked my body confidence although still wanting to explore this lifestyle my concern is how others would judge me with my bag obviously on show when at the beach or at a resort etc. Has anyone had any experiences in this environment good or bad ?

I'd say if you have the confidence to be a "naturist" in the first place, you won't have any trouble wearing a bag on the beach.  I saw a posting with a picture by a woman from CA in a bikini on the beach wearing an ostomy bag.  Didn't bother her one bit...  Others will judge you the same as they judge the rest of us who have to wear a bag.  Some, I suppose, it will bother...others it won't.  At least you'll know right away which ones it bothers and which ones it doesn't.  You won't have to worry about WHEN to tell someone.   lol  Go for it!

Hi Monkey,

Love your Monkey pic! I too have seen several, usually young women that wear a bikini with their pouch exposed! I am far from someone that would do that. Wearing a bikini without a pouch has not even been in my wardrobe for a few years! Lol I imagine it would look like a man purse or something at first glance! Not a bad thing either if you are insecure at first! Buy a pouch cover! Built in man purse! I say do what makes you comfortable! If be a naturalist is what you do, why change! I am sure you have seen uglier things than a pouch and did not judge!

One life live it!!! Get out there and live it. You will be surrpised no one will be the slighest bit bothered or make any nasty comments.  Naturism isn't for me but as I've read stories and seen bits and pieces about it on TV there the most unjuging people around and never judge anyone on there apperance

thanks for the feedback guys defo giving me food for thought. since my op i have had a more you only live once attitude and feel like if i want do something i should just do it.

I'm with all the supportive comments. My brother used to run a dress optional resort in NZ and nobody worried about what other people were wearing or not. A pouch would not have made any difference to their non-judgemental attitudes. 

Best wishes

Hi, order a stealth belt. They are very nice, it hides the ostomy and secures it in a way you will feel more confident. Hope this helps.

Your welcome, I order one just before Christmas. They are really helpful. I called them to ask a few questions. I received it about a week later. Wow. I can't wait to try it out in the summer. I might even  feel normal again on the beach, lol.

that is my hope to feel as normal as possible by the summer. the naturist community are usually really good with this sort of thing but still makes me a little nervous

Life is so short. I say go for it. For women things are much easier. Wearing corsets, wraps, wasps, is fairly common. Although not a naturist I have found that people in open/alternative subcultures are pretty open minded.

Yes you are so right Vanessa, Women can wear lingerie and look fantastic during intimate times. Men dont really have anything so the Stealth belt really is a great garmet to wear for those reasons also.
