I think one thing that most women can safely say they have in common when finding out they will need an ostomy, is a collective worry over how they are going to dress.
I am a big fan of the #GetYourBellyOut campaign, but you don’t necessarily want my ostomy out on display all day, everyday. Just like anyone without a colostomy bag, I think women generally like to keep their toilet habits, whatever they may be, under wraps… or at least under clothes.
Before having my ostomy surgery, I used to predominantly wear tops that were very tight around my stomach and low-slung hipster jeans. I then wore maternity wear when I was pregnant and for about 6 months after with the first baby, and, to be honest, I don’t think I ever truly got out of it after the second baby – but that’s another story.
Basically as far as I could see it, everything in my wardrobe was not going to work with an ostomy. Excellent!
