There are a lot of ostomates who love to spend time at the beach or by the pool, but many will find that swimwear is a bit of a challenge. OstomySecrets has two products made for these ostomates, and I’ll be giving you an overview of those products today.

I requested both of these products from OstomySecrets in order to try them out for a future project.

Why not a product review? I’m looking forward to doing a review when I’m able to wear these garments out at a beach or pool, but unfortunately, I still have an open wound that prevents me from going in public water.

Men’s Swim Trunks

The Men’s Swim Trunks are one of two styles of high-waisted swim shorts sold by Ostomy Secrets; the other is their Board Shorts, which are styles a bit different, use a different fabric, and comes in a different color.

These trunks come in one color, black, and the style is simple with no patterns or accents on the fabric. I don’t mind the simplicity, but it’d be awesome to see more patterns. They also have regular pockets, which make them practical for carrying keys or a wallet.

Simple style. Would love to see more colours/patterns.

I appreciate the fact that there are side pockets, and one rear pocket on these trunks.

The highlight of these shorts is the large inner pocket that keep your ostomy pouch nice and secure.  This pocket will accommodate stomas on the left or right abdomen, and will even work for ostomates who have two stomas.

The inner pocket keeps your bag from hitting your junk.

I found these shorts to be comfortable and can see them making a great addition to an ostomates summer wardrobe.

A pair of Swim Trunks run for US$49.99 + shipping (July 2015), which is about the same price you’d be paying for a premium pair of swim trunks, but you get the ostomy bag pockets on these.

Swim Wrap (Unisex)

The Ostomysecrets Swim Wrap is a unisex ostomy wrap, similar to their Classic Wrap (reviewed HERE), but with a few unique differences:

Firstly, the materials used on the Swim Wrap are a blend of Nylon (84%) and Lycra (16%), which are quite bit different compared to the Classic Wrap (90% Micopoly and 10% Elastane). This makes the Swim Wrap thinner, while giving it more stretch compared to the Classic Wraps. It also allow the wrap to dry faster, which is a bonus if you do plan to get wet in them!

This is the tan colour. These wraps are available in black, navy and silver, too!

Like the Classic Wrap, these Swim Wraps have two inner pockets, which allows you to comfortably keep your ostomy pouch(es) secure and concealed. Unlike the Classic Wrap, the Swim Wrap doesn’t need to be folded, as it’s shorter (this is a good thing).  I will note that the Swim Wraps will reduce your pouch’s capacity more than the Classic Wrap, but you’ll want to keep either as empty as possible for maximum comfort.

Left and right pockets will accommodate ileostomies, colostomies or a mucous fistula.

The Swim Wrap can be worn over or under your swimwear, and I’d also consider using these as an intimacy wrap, too.

The Swim Wraps are US$34.99 + shipping (July 2015), which are a bit more than the Classic Wraps (US$29.99), and they come on tan, black, navy and silver.

Will These Work For You?

If you find that you aren’t comfortable in swimwear, or you need some added pouch security and concealment, I think either of these products would be worth checking out.

Question: Have you used either of these products? What has your experience been with them?

  1. The wraps are now on sale for summer at 20 bucks a wrap! I am really thinking of ordering one for this summer!

  2. How did you manage to get the products from Ostomy Secrets? I tried to order something from them (am in Canada as I believe you are) and they informed me that they don’t ship to Canada.

    • Hey Colleen, I’ve been told that they are working on getting shipping to Canada going, but it sounds like that hasn’t happened yet. I requested these products as I need them for an upcoming video project.

      What were you trying to order? There may be a similar product available from a company that does ship to Canada.

      • I like the looks of the Ostomy Secrets underwear, so was trying to order them. However, I did some searching and ordered from Awestomy and C&S instead. The exchange rate right now is a killer though.

        • You should have a great experience with either of those! Yes, the exchange rate absolutely sucks right now! I’m glad we don’t have to order ostomy supplies from the US =)
