A. Pat: I would suggest that you print out the information on this web site and show it to your Ostomy Nurse or Doctor. They would be the ones to know if it is appropriate for your situation. If they have any questions please tell them to contact me. Back to Top Q What Size of Belt Hi, In measuring the size of belt I need, I have two different measurements. When I stand & bend my waist is 44 inches. When I sit my waist expands to 46 inches. Does the belt shrink or expand over time through stretching or washing? What size belt do I order??? Thank you …Jerry. A Jerry: Sorry for the delay in answering. To measure for the belt you must lie down on the floor and measure around the level of the stoma. The belt has several inches of stretch so it can be fit snug. When you order your belt give the measurement as above and you will get the right size. Any other questions please let me know.
