Illusion Wrap
I purchased this item and was very disappointed...it's flimsy, no support, rolls-up, doesn't fit snugly, securely...I recently purchased the Women's Curvy Illusion Wrap-Nude, which I absolutely love...so much so, I ordered a second one...I'm small, 5'2 120, so I purchased the XS which fits perfectly!  Snug, secure, sexy, lacy all the way around...I wish the black and pink Curvy Illusion were all lace also, but just the Nude for now...Which is ok with me!  Was just looking for some variety....

Go for the smaller size
I bought a nude illusion wrap in size medium because I was on the cusp of the two sizes. I bought the black one in size small. MUCH better fit for me. The lace stretches, so when you consult the chart -if you are close to the smaller size, go for the smaller size.

My skin is beige, so the beige pocket works for me, but I can see how it would not work for those with different skin tones. I agree that the pocket should be black to match the lace.

Again the wrap works best with a brand new fresh pouch, even a freshly emptied pouch does not fold up flat enough.

Thank you for helping me feel sexy again.

Leaves much to be desired
I bought this wrapped up with high hopes. The pictures looked so beautiful, and I have been very self conscious about being intimate with my man, so I thought that this would be a pretty and perfect and could help me feel more comfortable with my body. That assumption was incorrect!
I slipped it on and it actually had the opposite effect; it only seem to bring attention to my ostomy pouch as opposed to disguising it with a sexy piece of lingerie. The size fits around my waist just fine, but the pocket is narrow so there was a bulge where the pouch was.  That wasn't great, but it was something I could deal with. However, the interior pocket to hold your pouch isn't very deep, so when the pouch was folded in half (or even thirds), it didn't fit inside the pocket entirely and still stuck out a few inches out of the top of the wrap. I asked myself, what's the point of wearing the garment if it wasn't going to hide or even disguise anything? I also wondered if this was designed by a person who actually did not wear a pouch, or designed by someone who didn't need to wear a pouch and could get away with capping off the stoma, and so didn't have a sense of what the needs were for designing this type of garment. Either way, it did not make me feel desired nor inspire me to want to be intimate in the garment at all.
My hope is that Ostomysecrets will genuinely listen to the constructive criticism and create a garment similar to this that someone with an average sized pouch can wear.

Perfect!
I have had my illusion wrap in black for over a year now. I love the way the pouch hides inside the wrap. It makes me feel beautiful. The lace is very soft and comfortable. I feel it runs true to size. I highly recommend this wrap. It will bring back that sexy womanly feeling we all wondered if we could ever have again.

Why not take the colour of the inner pouch "cover" right across the front??
I wish I had the funds to design my own bands and underwear for ostomists.

On looking at the photos of this lace band, why oh why haven't they put the same colour as the bag "pouch" across the ENTIRE FRONT of the band?  It would still look nice with the lace outer, with a solid colour all across the front.

I have the nude color and when I first tried it on, I nearly cried. It was the first "ostomy" lingerie that made me feel like ME. I feel so confident when I am wearing this and now I am ordering the black color. The tan pocket is perfect! It really does blend in with your skin and becomes invisible! I wonder if the other reviewers who mentioned this have even tried it on. It is beautiful.

the perfect cover up
For all those people who keep saying why a beige bag. I just put mine on and it is perfect. It stands out here because it's on a white model. But on beige skin it's perfect can't see the bag at all. I can't say the same for an African American skin tone. If that's the case might wan to go with the other color but I can't wait for my date tonight. Been going out for a few weeks and now with this I feel confident enough to talk to him about it.

Tan pocket color is a miss!
I agree with the other reviews.  The tan pocket under black lace completely ruins the idea and purpose of this wrap.  When will the tan illusion wrap be available medium???

Pretty, runs big
Very pretty lace but runs at least one size big. Does not offer the same support as the regular wraps. Also the pocket should be black to blend in. Nice piece, very feminine. Will reorder a size smaller.

why tan under black?
Why wouldn't the layer under also be black to blend & not stick out like a sore thumb, with the tan fabric showing through it ruins this otherwise amazing piece
