Hey Everyone,

Im not a salesperson, but did want to show off a product that I found and bought myself. It works very very well. Its a belt that holds your pouch horizontally. It keeps it out of your pants so you can wear whatever kind of pants you want, with or without a belt. It also holds the bag firmly against your stomach, so it doesnt bulge up from gas. Lastly, it hides the bag, so if you have your shirt off (men), it isnt noticable. Only the belt itself is seen. Its excellent for pretty much any situation, including those close moments.

Anyways, the site I found it for sale on is called C& M Ostomy supplies. Their website is www.cmostomysupply.com. They also have all kinds of other cool nick nacks that I havent found elsewhere.

how do you empty your bag when it's held horizontally? do you lose capacity?

There is a cover that you pull open that allows the bag to flop out of the belt. From there you do have to lean over to empty the bag. This is the only downside as you dont get as much "reach" to the toilet with your bag. However, the upside of the belt well exceeds the downside. You dont lose any capacity.

Has anyone tried the swim gard...the one with a pump to suck out the air? Looks kind of neat

I ordered the "dry pro" and "cuddly wrap." We'll see, maybe I just wasted some money :P I bought their 'stoma gard' a couple yrs ago but it wasn't any good...gimmicky

Let me know how it goes. I bought the pouch support belt and like it alot. I also got the cumber-bun but haven't had a chance to use it. I put it on to try it out though, and it seems like its pretty cool.

OK well I"ve FINALLY received the "cuddly wrap" and "dry pro." Guess being here in Canada, it takes a bit longer. The cuddlywrap I would say is gimmicky, a bellaband works better. THe cuddlywrap has a pocket for the tail end of the bag, but the whole thing rides up on you and just doesn't work well. If you had a perfectly flat tummy/front I'm sure this would work well. Otherwise the bellaband is the way to go. And FYI "wine" color means red wine, not white wine lol. One could just turn the unit backwards and you'd have the same thing as a bellaband....although I prefer the bellaband material feel.

The "dry pro" works as advertised, although I should have bought the next size up. Pretty tight, this one lol

I would like to try that belt that holds the bag horizontally, like SocalJohn has, but am worried about leaks..my output is always liquid, if the bag is horizontal doesn't that mean your poop "washes" the flange area every time you move?
