Have any of you ever tried high cut underwear? I've always worn the low rise bikini type, but decided to try my first pair of high cut yesterday. They are really comfortable, and I like the way they completely hide the pouch and smooth everything out. They are cut high on the sides and are a black stretchy material, so they are actually sexy and flattering (not like those giant cotton unflattering ones).
Once when I was in the hospital, I asked my husband to bring me some underwear. Well, he decided to buy some at the grocery store (of all places!) instead of grabbing some from my drawer, and they were the giant cotton unflattering ones! I was desperate, so I wore them in the hospital, but threw them out once I got home.
I used to think all high cut undies were like those and am happy to find out they are not. I can't believe I've had an ileostomy for 3 years and have just NOW found some good undies to wear!
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)
