The 7 Best Ostomy Belts [2023]

The 7 Best Ostomy Belts [2023]
HPFY Staff Writer

A colostomy, ileostomy, or urostomy requires an ostomy pouch to be attached to the abdomen to collect body waste.

As the pouch fills with waste, the excess weight may pull it down and cause it to tear or detach from the stoma. An ostomy belt bears the weight of the pouch, keeps it stable, and prevents damage to the bag and the stoma.  In this article, you will find the 7 best ostomy belts that offer you ultimate comfort and support. 

Benefits of an Ostomy Wrap

Besides supporting the ostomy device, an ostomy support belt helps in the following ways:

  • Prevents leaks and rashes
  • Avoids accidents
  • Boosts confidence
  • Stabilizes the ostomy
  • Helps drain the bag easily
  • Adds pressure to enhance the seal
  • Helps keep the stoma hidden

7 Things About Choosing An Ostomy Belt

1. Don't Compromise On Comfort

A wafer and pouch are attached to the stoma day and night, so you will probably always wear an ostomy bag belt. Choose a belt that keeps you feeling comfortable and secure.

2. The Opening Of The Ostomy Wrap

If you choose a belt with an opening, ensure the opening is on the same side as the stoma. If the stoma is on the left side of the abdomen, the opening should also be on the left side, and so on. 

3. Look For A Wrap For the Ostomy That Fits

The belt should fit snugly, but it should never be too tight on your waist. A tight-fitting belt may apply pressure on the ostomy device and pull it laterally. A loose-fitting belt may hang on the abdomen and not provide adequate support.

4. The Material Of The Ostomy Belt

The material of your ostomy bag belt should be lightweight; otherwise, it will add more weight to your abdomen. It should have enough width to cover any skin bulges and not roll due to pressure.

5. Conformity To The Body Shape

The ostomy support belt should be flexible and adjust to the shape of the body so it can move with the body's natural movements.

6. Durability Of The Wrap

The belt should be made of a high-quality material that lasts long despite multiple uses. 

7. Discreetness

Most people are much more comfortable when their ostomy device and belt are not easily visible or detectable. Look for a belt that fits discreetly under the clothing.

Ostomy belts are made of an elastic material, and their strength will decrease over time. Make sure to replace the belt once it shows signs of reduced elasticity. Everyone is different, so talk to your doctor before purchasing an ostomy bag belt. A medical professional can help you better understand important things to consider for your individual needs.
