As most of you will know I’m only 14 weeks post surgery to remove my large intestines and have an ileostomy (most will recognise the word colostomy but it’s a similar idea meaning I have a bag I poop into instead of doing my business normally) so I’ve not had much chance to be fashionable when my main concern is comfort… That is until very recently when I discovered these:
The Boohoo.com AMELIA ZIP FRONT PULL ON TREGGINGS £12.00 have been life savers! Not only are they high waisted which is perfect for supporting my ileostomy, they also are a thick material which means when the bag is empty or partially filled you can’t even see it and no one is any the wiser.
I teamed these treggings with the grey MADISON ZIP FRONT CAMI also from Boohoo.com £10.00. The top is lightweight and baggy which helps greatly if your bag is pretty full as it disguises the bulge until you get to the toilet!
I found the outfit covered and did not irritate my new scars and both are very soft on my irritated and dry skin.
Wear with a hoodie and trainers for a dressed down look or add a cropped sleeve blazer and ballet flats for a city chic look perfect for shopping/lunch/meeting friends.
