what clothes do men wear
I think men and women all do pretty much the same thing. I wear nothing but the clothes I wore prior to surgery! My pouch goes in my underwear and then I wear jeans, shorts, dresses, bathing suits, etc. with no problem. I donāt like the thought of a belt and have no need for it or any other specialty products. You can go as far as you want to for security purposes but I have no problems keeping my pouch in place and nobody ever notices the slight bulge there.Ā
Oh I must try the dresses not done that before lolĀ
When Iām out and about, I generally do more to hide the pouch, and at times, muffle the sounds it can make occasionally as well, lol.
Basically, I fold and turn the pouch sideways, so I can wear a belt with my jeans. I then pull a skin colored wrap over the whole thing to keep everything in place.
If Iām planning to be with friends, or in a potentially quiet environment, like a meeting, lunch, or movie like setting, than I go a step further. I then place one or two neoprene āmufflersā (Stealth Belt - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5P02CIYc2c) over the stoma area to muffle sounds, and then pull the wrap over the whole thing to keep everything in place. It works great!
The minor downsides are... 1) itās a little more hassle when you have to āgoā 2) it makes just a little more of a pooch look in my stomach area, and 3) it makes it easier to get a little overheated on a spring or summer day, or if exercising.
Hahaha Mike, send pictures please!Ā
Puppy I wil have to borrow one of yours lol
Happy Easter Puppy š
Hope your Easter was great! Mine was!Ā
Yes thank Ā a very good one š
I ware jeans mostly and use suspenders as a belt would cut my bag in half. I also use a bandeau coverup.
I am a woman and Like Puppy IĀ wear what I have always wore,Ā Ā I just tuckmy bag in my underwear,Ā Ā sometimes I wear a hernia beltĀ as I have developed 2 hernias.Ā Parastomal amd umbilical,Ā but only when out and about and know I will be doing anything strenious..Ā I am on a weigh restriction of 10 lbsĀ Ā at home i just wear what I have always worn,Ā but I do find thatĀ anythingĀ with elastic around the waist is more comfortable.Ā My stoma is below my waist so I am good.Ā I say just wear whatever feels good.
AN idea for some ladies! I found this out by accident! I love Certain line of shorts and they are pricey when not on sale so I look in the clearance racks or go shopping when they are buy on, get on half off. It seems no matter what size I am wearing at the time, they are always sold out of my size. The clearance racks and petite sizes are upstairs in Belk and I have to try everything on. Even two of the same size! In doing that, I found that if I wear a petite but get it one size larger, the waste hits lower than on my waste and does not get in the way of my stoma. I am in no way a petite woman. 5ā8 and mostly legs. But this works. For those of us who have never been Petite, nice to tell my friends, oh, these are petites! Lol
Does that mean I canāt borrow one if yours then
