Features and Benefits of our #316 model Hernia Brief

Designed to assist with a single or dual (bilateral) inguinal herniaOrione Hernia Brief Model #316 is made from Orione elasticated fabric (a cotton fabric with elastomers) that provides 3 different tensions throughout the design giving excellent support and comfort. Suitable for male gender only. If your hernia has descended into the scrotum area over an extended period of time then unfortunately none of our products will be suitable.

The #316 is a slightly higher model than the #313, it really depends on your level of discomfort and the site of the hernia. If you have a relatively large hernia the #316 is your best choice. This model has a velcro top-to-bottom front flap opening.

All Hernia briefs are supplied with two anatomically
 shaped, flat foam pads. There are two small pouches on the inside of the brief. They are recommended as they put direct pressure on the hernia but the fit is entirely up to the wearer.

Sizing is important as we do not offer returns for underwear:  Measure around the waist with a tape measure just below t
he belly button, approximately where the top of your normal underwear would be. Do not assume your normal trouser size is actually your waist size. If you consider yourself on a sizing borderline go down rather than up.  Take a tight tape measurement in centimetres not inches, if you consider that you will be a poor fit for this brief due to your body-shape please consider our #313 or #560 briefs.  If you are buying for somebody else please check their size - don't guess. "Measure Twice - Shop Once".

The manufacturer recommendation is 'hand wash only at low temperature water', however we have heard many reports from customers who have used a a washing machine on a low temperature and spin setting without adversely affecting the garment..
Do not use bleaches or detergents.

Product Information

The Hernia support brief is worn instead of normal briefs and provides support and relief around the abdominal region. The airy elasticated fabric is designed to be worn all day and allows good freedom of movement. Suitable for left, right or double (bilateral) inguinal hernias close to the groin. The brief is supplied with two thin, firm shaped, foam pads which can (optionally) be inserted in the internal fabric pouches to assist in direct flattening support to the hernia region.

A hernia truss is not needed or advised. The Hernia Brief has a low-profile design looks at first glance exactly like normal underwear with excellent Italian styling.


Suitable for an Inguinal Hernia that is classified as 'reducible' i.e. it can be pushed back into the body without undue pain. Also suitable for post-operative care where support is necessary across the site. 

Do not use on injured skin or together with ointments or creams. if in doubt consult your physician for approximate time and way of use.

Not recommended if  part of your hernia is emerging into the scrotum as internal foam pads need to cover whole hernia area for effective relief.

Do not wear this product directly after surgery particularly if you have had a mesh-type hernia repair as pressure on the mesh may cause internal inflammation. Post-operation the hernia brief can be worn as a general gentle support without the foam pad(s) but only after clearance from your surgeon / GP regarding recovery rates.

Derek and his magic pants - a true story...

"I bought a pair of 516 pants and was sceptical when I saw them that they would work. One day and half days later I ordered a second pair. They were quickly named my 'magic pants', much to the amusement of friends and work colleagues. Over 10 days of wearing them the size of the inguinal hernia reduced by about 70%, coughing and sneezing no longer had me bent double to prevent pain. I did try a day without them just to see what would happen. One careless movement and the hernia started to swell. I have had my operation and no longer require to wear them but for me, they were 'magic'. "
