Once you have recovered from your surgery and any discomfort and swelling has reduced, you can wear almost any types of clothing you like without anyone noticing. 

If you’re feeling self-conscious about people noticing under your clothing, here are some tips:

  • High waisted trousers and underwear are a good choice as they can sit above your bag and will not restrict the output contents.
  • If you feel worried about your stoma, focus the attention away from your stomach area with a scarf or necklace. Pleats and wraps and even patterns and prints can also help disguise and camouflage your stomach area.
  • If a belt is causing issues due to it cutting through and restricting your bag, consider replacing with braces.
  • Consider wearing darker colours around the waist area.
