GUTS

WHAT
Stoma bags redesigned to look and feel better, boosting confidence and helping wearers to enjoy a full and active life. There are three styles with special features tailored to different moments: regular, sporty and intimate.

WHY
The designs now in use do not fit our modern lifestyle and really limit wearers’ freedom. They are uncomfortable, don’t stay in place, leak and irritate the skin.

WOW
Teddy interviewed stoma users to assess their needs and wishes, incorporating these in her designs. There is a deflation valve and the flexible material moves noiselessly along with the body. Appealing to look at, they are no longer something to hide away in shame.

QUOTE
Current designs are anything but sexy.
