so i go to change my bag/flange yesturday.  i'm using hollister new image w/tape.  so if you're looking at it from the skin side, there's the area with tape which encompasses the perimeter, and there's the center area which forms the seal, made of a different material.
 
anyway no issues until i go to pull the backing off the new flange. i discovered that the center area had migrated about 1/4" all the way around into the tape area...same with the next flange that i pulled out of the purse.  i had to go to the bedroom and get another one from the box which was OK
 
so my question:  would heat cause this to happen, or is this a flaw from the factory?  i always leave my purse [read: supplies] in my car and this is the first time this has occurred, there have been hotter weeks here. 
 
strange anyways!!

i find mine do stuff up abit if i leave them in the car they warp ect. you could try ringing the place where u got them maybe they could tell u if there have been other problems like this or if its due to the heat.

Yeah, leaving supplies in the hot car could cause them to melt.

Yes, I rotate the supplies I carry with me during the summer because they do melt.  Also, the drawer I kept them in at home gets hit with early afternoon sun, so I've had to move them, too.
 
Another thing:  pay attention to the weather when you order new supplies...If they are left outside for too long (not to mention the long delivery ride to my house) they can be affected, too.  Cold is just as bad...

hmmm, i'll put them in the trunk from now on and see if that's enough of a temp difference to not make them melt

Matt, I would think the trunk would be worse. Most cars - it's a hotter place. Don't advise.
