My nurse gave me a great tip regarding my ostomy bag. I tuck it into my undies or pull-ups, depending how my day is going and the skin under the bag/pouch can turn red and looks like a rash. I am guessing it is from the bag sitting on my skin, and it gets hot in there (no comment) sooo instead of buying an ostomy bag cover which for me is just one extra thing to take off when I empty the pouch, I use a cloth baby bib. Newborn size works perfect. You can buy the ones that tie, but I prefer the ones that snap. No more pouch irritating my skin and it is small enough not to make a huge buldge.
