I wear shorts style undies (like bikini style height) and have higher stoma so that the top of the undies elastic comes to the bottom of the wafer ring (Iwear a two piece system with a click cinnecting ring). I then tuck just the clip end of the bag into the top of the knickers elastic and let rest if bag hang down, sort of in a loop. This way instead of all the weight being on one area it is spread between the two and also don't like the feeling of the bag hanging down my leg, it annoyed me when it was starting to fill and could feel it pressing against thigh area when I sat down. This way it is all in the stomach area.
