Selecting a Flat, Convex or Convex Light depends on your body. The best fit would come from your own comfort and the connectivity of the barrier with your stoma. Flat stomas are easier to connect to. They are surrounded by flat skin with usually no telescoping stoma. A convex stoma needs to be set more carefully to assure the best performance. This could be skin scars, folds or poorly located ostomy. A light convex is a minimal adjustment for convexity. Getting a proper seal with little to no gaps is crucial - unseen waste can cause skin irritations if not cleaned properly.
Some bags include belt tabs. If you find it difficult to keep your bag in place. You may benefit from these options. They attach to belts such as the Brava Ostomy Belt.
