I don't bother with low rise jeans. Normal jeans suit me just fine :) I've found undies that aren't 'granny undies' at $10AUS for a pack of 4 at (believe it or not) Coles here in Australia (which is a grocery variety store much like Walmart in the US. They're high rise but with a high cut leg and very comfy.
I wear 'normal' clothes, everything except a bikini. I have a 'work' blouse which I really do wish was a bit longer (more to cover my huge backside than the front of me) but it still works :)
Tell you what - have a look around next time you're shopping and try and spot the ostomate (in a medium sized shopping centre you can bet there's probably more than one walking around). I bet you can't tell who has an ostomy or not. Most people wouldn't have a clue what they were looking at even if they could see a slight bulge - they'd probably not think anything of it anyway. It's only because we're so self concious that we think people can see it.
I have had an ileostomy for 32 years now due to UC.

I'm not a complete idiot - some parts of me are missing!
