I normally wear my bag hanging down supported by a Nu-Hope support belt.  I have looked at the Stealth Belt and similar wraps and I get cheap when looking at a $100 item to hold the bag horizontally.

I bought a women's tube top (boob tube) from eBay for $1.04 Us or $1.34 Canadian from China. One size fits all.  My waist is 36" and it works great to hold the appliance. I may buy a few more at this price.  The eBay ad is at https://www.ebay.com/itm/122070964311?ViewItem=&rd=1&item=122070964311&ssPageName=STRK:MERFB:IID

The thing is pretty thin (see through).  This shot is over the Nu-Hope belt that causes the roll of fat over the belt.

Something you might want to try. The price is right. It takes 3 or 4 weeks to get since it is shipped from China.

If you don't want  to go the  eBay route, Walmart sells these usually as maternity wraps for like $10 😀

I use the maternity wrap from Walmart. It works great. I am very new to all of this but it holds my bag and place and you cannot tell I have it on under my clothes.

Welcome, Ducky!

Marcie, if pancaking is an issue for you, I can tell you that wraps will not help the situation,unfortunately.

Ducky, we'd love to know more about you if you're up to opening up, but please do it in the introductions area so we don't derail this thread.

Great ideas. I hadn't surgery in November.  I like the Maternity wrap idea. Where in Walmart?  Underwear dept.?  I just ordered By Hope Hernia belt. I dontbyurt, just need to tuck all of this in. I did order a Tube wrap. I like the flexibility of wearing Pouch either way. Depends on occasion. I can use all the help and tips. So much out there. Don't want to waste money on expensive items that are useless.

I got my wrap in the underwear dept at Wal-Mart. Very inexpensive.
