I too wear tighter undies to hold stuff in place. It is just more comfy for me to wear them ... that is what I began with many years ago and just stuck with them. I don't care to wear the control top panty hose --- doesn't bother the stoma, but does bother my stomach since I am short waisted. I prefer thigh high hose. I've worn panty hose when I am in a pinch, but just not crazy about them.
