"Will it fit me? This is one of the most frequently asked questions we hear. The Armor will fit most stomas. However, we can fit anyone from toddlers to adults.
Which one is right for me?
Petite Armor: Best fit for:
Waist of less than 25" The stoma is higher up, close to the rib cage. Customers in wheelchairs.
Titanium Max: 6” x 3.5. Best fit for:
High impact sports or occupations, such as law enforcement, firefighter, motorcycle sports, rugby/football. Occupations or activities with constant bending/crouching/twisting for greater range of motion Activities in extreme temperatures Pre-existing hernias up to 3" high.
Heavy Duty: 6.5” across by 3 3/4 . Best fit for:
Everyday life and activities: seatbelts, shopping carts, children, pets, crowds. Office work, shopping, relaxing. Customers on a budget. Pre-existing hernias up to 3" high. All products have a curve to accommodate the body shape and all flex comfortably.
Large Hernia Armor: Best fit for:
Pre-existing hernias that are over 3" high Waist measurements over 45" Hernias: If you are measuring over a hernia/parastomal hernia that has already developed, please estimate how many inches you can push or pull the hernia back in. Please include this information in the "notes"section of the ordering form. Or, if you wish, you can place your order by phone: 800 308 7637. Ostomy Armor will hold a hernia in place securely and comfortably.
The belt is made for your waist size/around where your stoma is. (Your regular waist size might not be the same as around your torso at the stoma level.
Please measure where your stoma is, NOT just your pants/trousers/normal waist size. ) A video is available to demonstrate how to measure. Do NOT add extra inches for a safety margin: your product will have room to lose and gain weight. If you gain or lose so much that it no longer fits, or if you measured incorrectly, contact us, send it back and we will remake the belt. Fees for a re-make start at $30, and includes shipping. Special custom requests may incur extra costs.
Foam backing . The back of the Armor has a comfortable foam backing that absorbs impact. This fits on top of the barrier/baseplate/flange and has a channel to allow waste to drain. This two inch opening will fit over most barriers. After years of testing, our foam is “just right.” Not too hard, not too soft. It is comfortable, but will not compress excessively or wear out.
It will not allow any moisture to absorb and it’s super easy to clean. And it’s covered with a layer of non-slip, non-absorbent material for even greater grip.
Thin Foam: .5" Best for tiny stomas that do not protrude or only protrude a little.
Standard Foam: .75". Best for the majority of stomas. A stoma that retracts to under an inch will fit comfortably under the Standard Foam.
Deep Foam: 1". If the stoma is well over an inch and DOES NOT RETRACT, the Deep foam may be the best choice. Your stoma needs room to do it's job. Be aware that the Deep Foam will have a more noticeable profile.

See what others have to say about Ostomy Armor
- My name is Dean, I am a Canadian Police Officer, father and husband. I live a very active lifestyle and like many people in my profession worked myself nearly to death. Being stubborn I ignored early warning signs and eventually fell very ill and was diagnosed with UC in 2017. The next full year was an extreme battle with the disease and my health deteriorated rapidly. I received emergency surgery to remove my colon in 2018 and ended up with an ileostomy. For a year of recovery I battled with my mental health and physical health under the weight of my world crashing down on me. While still in the early stages of recovery I discovered Ostomy Armor. I ordered one (Titanium Max) and started wearing it ASAP. Wearing this product through my recovery boosted my confidence and allowed me to begin healing mentally allowing me to kick my physical fitness into high gear. 2019 I returned to work and have been since able to do the things that are required of me in my profession as a police tactical team member. My Ostomy is a bit higher to allow me to wear my gun belt and wearing plates/body armor is no issue either. Adapt and Overcome.Thank you Ostomy Armor for making such a great product.
In 8 days I had no failures, no issues, no problems. I cannot tell you the last time I’ve gone 8 days without any kind of problems, leaks, etc etc. I had a great week with everything doing its job perfectly! We were sweaty, dirty, climbing in, around, over, under, pushing, pulling, leaning on repeatedly you name it and had no issues. I cannot recall the last time I went days without worrying about the damn wafer, bag, etc etc. For me this was a big return to my old normal. Thanks so much for some great products!
"Thank you for your product without it I don't know where I would be!!! When I first found out the news was devastating and like anyone else I started thinking how can I still do my job. Still to this day, I can say that because of your product I am still able to do my every day functions as a police officer."
Hi Gordon. I just wanted to thank you for making such a wonderful product. After my husband's surgery four years ago, he bought two belts from another company, but he was experiencing leaks which made him afraid to go places and do things such as ride his motorcycle. He needed to have a complete change of clothing with him when he went somewhere, in case he had a leak. He has been using Ostomy Armor for a couple of years now, and now he doesn't have leaks. What a relief! Thanks again!
