Unpleasant feeling?: Tightness can mean different states at distinctive times. The most common is the complaint of tightness of chest, a feeling of discomfort, real or perceived, seen often in patients with asthma or panic disorder, or heart attack. Your physician will decide the cause.

Can I wear tight fitting clothing with my bcir?

Yes: You should be able to wear tight fitting clothing. However depending on the size and location of your stoma, you might be able to detect the cap if your clothing is really tight.
A 43-year-old member asked:

If I wear my watch too tight, can it restrict bloodflow?

Sure you can...: Tight watch, ruberband/wrist-sport bands or anything too tight around the wrist can restrict blood flow--first the veins. If the veins on back of hands bulge out/larger with your tight watch, then it is restricting veinous blood flow. Further tightening can reduce arterial flow but this will be quite uncomfortable/painful if prolonged. So, loosen it up a bit. Good luck.

Pads: Materials technology has brought us much smaller pads. If you look a little, you can probably find one that's not visible. You probably are more self conscious than you need to be. I agree that wearing looser clothing is also helpful. The third option is to wear a tampon or a menstrual cup.

Your wife said?: The tightness and close fit of your attire are an aesthetic choice. Pants that fit too tightly on males do decrease the sperm count, but that is it.

What the heck is tight pants syndrome?

Dr. Gregory Hines

Theoretical: The theory is that tight and unyielding clothing impairs the bowel function and causes abdominal pain. According to a dr. Octavia bessa of stamford, ct, posits that it is due to men not buying their own clothes, but fitting into the clothes that their wife/girlfriend buy for them, and they may not be the correct size. Hard to say if it is real or imaginary, but wear properly fitting clothes.
