I was contacted by Charlotte from DMU in Leicester who is doing a project to make lingerie/swimwear for a purpose.
She says “Me and my group have decided that we want to design swimwear that is more suitable to stoma patients as well as concealing the bag within the swimwear and keeping it fashionable.”
I have never managed to find ostomy swimwear that suited me, I do like the idea of having a pouch that holds my bag safely against me but all the swimwear I have seen have been in fabric I thought was ugly and cheap looking, so Im thrilled that students are thinking about this issue for ostomates.
The group have made a survey to help them in their studies.
I have filled in the survey, but if any of you can take a couple of minutes to fill it in, that would be great!
