Curious if anyone has tried a Stealth Belt.  There is a website for them.  It looks exactly like what I would want for swimming and working out. (Neither of which I've done since the surg)  They are pretty pricey, but if it really is a good product, then I will invest.

There are many on here that use the Stealthbelt and other forms of is really a personal choice, not a necessity, so read through some of the older posts, too!

I swim, run, workout and anything else I want without any belts...I tuck my pouch into my undies and go! As far as swimming I wear a two-piece tankini with a skirt and it holds things together nicely.

Have fun getting back to the gym!

A tank top around my belly works as well as any of the belts that I have tried. It's much cheaper, too.

I found the stealth belt to be a life changer.

There's been a bit of this on the forum recently- on a post 'horizontal vs. vertical'

Due to the position of my stoma my belt line crosses mid way on the bag. Because of this wearing it horizontal works much better. Can wear any of my jeans / belts / suits no problem.

It does look like i gained a few kilos when it's full and you do have to always have the bag horizontal (unless you can use a bag which rotates). But otherwise I have had no problems!
