Stretchy Stuff:

Weight fluctuations have been extremely problematic for me over the years, and my ileostomy is right where the waistline of my old pants was. With all that going on, I need to get creative with clothing. My mother has been very helpful with my quest for clothes that fit, flex with my ever-changing weight, and hide my ostomy. We’re so delighted when we make a new discovery, and we want to share our finds because we had almost no help at all. Here are some things that worked for me.

Athleta: Athletic apparel for women. I love everything here, but the swim shorts resolved some serious angst. The skirts and dresses are marvelous; they are comfortable yet low-maintenance.

Caslon Shirred V-Neck Tees: These shirts from Nordstrom are good at camouflaging flaws, and you can also adjust the length a bit depending on your outfit.

Daisy Fuentes: I’ve had good luck with this designer’s pants. I found a pair of gray sweatpants that look presentable enough to wear in public!

Jag Jeans: The mid-rise and pull-on styles work best for me. This brand offers a variety of cuts, washes, and more than just jeans. They are also sold in Von Maur stores, so you can try them on in person.

Jolt Jeans: Primarily skinny styles for juniors. Sold at Dillard’s, Von Maur, Nordstrom and Macy’s.

Last Tango: Flexible, flattering ruched tops.

ModCloth: So many dresses built to conceal flaws and accentuate the positive! They have lots of things besides dresses, too: all sorts of clothing, accessories, shoes, and even goodies for your home/apartment.

Soma: undergarments and soft pajamas. “Cool Nights” pajama collection helps with night sweats.

TravelSmith: Clothing designed for comfort, with options that look like they will hide a bloated belly or ostomy bag quite nicely.

Velvet by Graham and Spencer dresses: This brand favors ruched and drapey styles, some of which are made of delightfully soft fabric. You’ll have to research a few websites to find this brand, but here is an example. I’ve found that their dresses with gathered midsections are key to finding a flattering yet versatile dress for my body shape.
