Hi there I am a newbie from Australia.
I have an unusual request Well maybe.
I have to wear a bag. Everyday activities mean we have to expose that bag, be it in a change room, communial showers or even at Home getting changed in same room as wife/ partner or for that matter on occassions of sex. This is not always a case when the bag is in pristine conditions, if you get what i mean. what I have been looking for is some sort of a cover, something like a maybe a girdle type thing or a pocket bandage type thing that would Cover the bag and thus prevent an uncomfortable or awkward situation for the wearer or anyone else who may be present. Does any body have any suggestion or links that they know where you can buy such a product?
MTIA if my post is not quite clear please feel free to aske and i will try to explain better

Try buying a tube top from K-Mart or Target and wearing it around your waist - it will cover everything nicely.

If you know anyone who sews, give them one of your bags as a template and have them make a bag cover for you - it's very easy to do.

Shaz Thank you very much for a very simple and effective idea :-) I would have never thought of that. I have had Bag covers made, but I found attaching them to my body with tape left rather sore rashes iwth the tube top I could ( if necessary) attach the bag covers to the inside of the top, just for added support of the bag.

Shaz, I would like to take this opportunity to up date you. Hey yes went and got a boob tube or tube top And gave your idea a go. Welll
Thank you very much! It works a treat It makes wearing the bag a lot more comfortable. As my Stoma was right on my belt line trousers, shprts had to be worn higher then normal with the tube top my bag seems more supported from pressure above and the drag or pulling below. A side benifit is that it has done wonders for my self esteem and self image, Now i know that's a vanity thing, however if it makes me feel better about myself then it can't be all bad.
So Once again thank you ever so much For such a simple, inexpensive but effective solution to an awkwardunsightly problem
Vince yeah

Take care.
