You can still have fun with clothes if you have a stoma 🙂
After my surgery, I really thought that I wouldn’t be able to wear what I wanted. I thought everyone would be able to see the bag. I was completely wrong. I found I could wear jeans, go swimming and customise most outfits; it just required me to think outside the box. Women have so many more options than men. Maternity ranges are great for expandable waistlines on trousers and skirts and there are always styles of dresses to suit you if you have a stoma.
My go-to outfit was a dress and tights. Tights have a couple of advantages: they keep the bag flat and they also minimise any leaks.
