I am really struggling with figuring out how to where low waisted jeans with this bag. I do not own any jeans that fit on my waist. All of my jeans either have the waistband that lays on my stoma or the waistband is under the wafer so I feel like when I sit down that the blue jeans waistband will pop the wafer off my skin like a pop bottle
opener. I am scared that the waistband on top of the stoma may damage it. The good news is that my dress clothes are not going to be an issue but these blue jeans appear to be. Any advice?
