The pantie's and belt's have a pocket on the inside into which the stoma bag is inserted. Because there is cotton fabric between the bag and the skin, it reduces the possibility of skin inflammation. The panties additionally hold the bag against the body and reduce the possibility of detachment. In the case of bag detachment, it stays in its place, as the pocket prevents it from slipping along the body and dropping out of clothing to the ground. While sleeping, the panties hold the bag to the body and prevent wrinking and curling, which allows the patient a relaxed sleep.
