My husband has problems when needing to wear a suit because he cant tuck in his shirt. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Suspenders and a larger waist band on his pants.
I wear a Stealth Belt and can tuck in a shirt if needed.
Hi RSL. I spent last Friday at my grandson's wedding from around noon 'till past midnight. I wore the same suit I wore to my son's wedding 17 years ago as his Best Man. That was about 7 years before I had any knowledge of ostomies or guts in general. So, because of about 20 more pounds on this body and a stoma right at the beltline I visited a taylor and had the waist taken out about 3 inches. Then I got $6 suspenders, tucked my shirt in and attained reasonable comfort. I did not use an EZ-Vent on the pouch because that would've dug into the waist band.
Enjoy the occasion, make a speech and be thankful you could be there.
Has he tried a wrap? Ostomy secrets make unisex ones in black. I have to use one no matter what I wear because the stoma is right at my waist. I then put pouch in the wrap and the wrap on top of the pants. I can tuck in all around except right where stoma is, so for that couple of inches I fold the shirt up under itself and pull top of wrap over it, so it gives allusion of being nicely tucked in.
