Selling your clothes is another option. There are hundreds of website dedicated to selling second hand clothes.
It may also be worth checking Facebook for a local selling page so people can just come and pick them up, save posting items all over the place, we have a wonderful one for my area.
Looks that work well
Patterns make it harder to identify any bumps and movement.
Ruching, especially when it is on the same side as your ostomy, will hide all manner of sins. I have even more good news... ruched gives the illusion of a smaller waist. So it will hide the ostomy and make you look slimmer – what could be better than that?!
High-waisted jeans, trousers or leggings – they effectively act a bit like a protective layer, over the bag. I have found that I can even wear tight tops again over the top of my jeans which has been quite revolutionary for me.
Rockabilly – Think 1950's glamour! Pinching in at the waist and flaring back out again. This again is very slimming as your waist is your thinnest point and then it flares out so you can't see anything underneath.
One final piece of advice
The biggest piece of advice I think I can give when it comes to coping post surgery is – be kind to yourself. Your body (as well as your heart) has been through an astonishing ordeal and it will take time for your body to settle and for your concerns of how you look to dwindle.
