Calling my Irish friends!

Someone on YouTube had mentioned that finding ostomy clothing is very difficult in Ireland (didn't say whether they were in North or South Ireland).

They were looking specifically for boxers but said the cost is quite high.

Do any of you have experience with ordering clothing items designed for ostomates that have been shipped to Ireland (or sold from Ireland, ideally)?

Hi Eric, the main company would be comfiz, I have never ordered underwear from them. but yes they can be expensive. if its any help Marks and Spencer mens wear do a good range and I wear the boxers and go a size up. that does the trick covering the pouch but if support is wanted the boxer briefs are good also. they have stores on both sides of the border. plus the trousers/chinos are a good fit for an ostomy as well.

hey Eric as John said Comfizz do a range which some are free to UK residents .

but funny enough I also find the  Marks and Spencer ( large good quality retailer north and south ) boxers very comfy and can be adjusted to cover the pouch
