I don't like the weight of the bag even a little either, so I made a support out of the bottom of a cotton/spandex singlet, I had in my draw (bonds ladies) I cut the top off it just below the bust line, and made a hole for the base plate of my ostomy bag, so I can have it like a sling, under and over the bag, i also have very sensitive skin and was getting a rash where the bag touched my tummy, so this has now fixed that problem, you can buy a MATERNITY/ PREGNANCY BELLY BAND, for around $5 if you don't have fabric or a boob tube top that is a little smaller than you are around your tummy, and just make a cross cut where your ostomy flange ring will fit, and step into (Fabric inside out) it pull the bag through the cross cut and fit it around the flange then bring the fabric up over the bag, it will support the bag for you, if you need more support then you can tuck it into your undies. It works for me and I have a clean one every day, I would like to buy a stealth belt but a the moment they are to much for me and this is working. I hope this helps, if you are unsure of what i meant let me know and I will email you with a photo.. Maggie
