The Ostomy Cover opening hole will fit around the hard plastic ring of your specific ostomy pouch. The easiest way to find the right opening size is to place a ruler across the ring and measure the diameter (at the widest point, as shown). If your pouch has a large oval-shaped flange, choose the Opening Size: "3.5" Oval

*for 1-piece Ostomy Bags measure the diameter of the adhesive area.

Choose from the following sizes (round up if needed):
