Please read all our information below carefully to ascertain suitability and ensure a good fit...

Designed to assist with single or dual (bilateral) inguinal hernia. Orione Hernia Brief model #515 is predominantly cotton so particularly suitable for warmer climates and light. The airy elasticated fabric is designed to be worn all day and allows good freedom of movement. The model is open type. All Hernia briefs are supplied with two anatomically shaped flat foam pads which (optionally) fit in two small pouches in 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. Suitable for the 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.

Sizing is important as we do not offer returns for underwear:  Determine your body-shape suitability for this model from the 'Dimensions and Fitting' tab below. Measure around the waist with a tape measure approximately where the top of your normal underwear would be. Do not assume your normal trouser size is actually your waist size. Take a tight tape measurement in centimetres not inches, if you consider yourself on a sizing borderline go down rather than up. (if you need a larger size please consider our #316 model which goes up to 120cm / 47.5cm) . If you are buying for somebody else please check their size - don't guess "Measure Twice - Shop Once".

Washing Advice

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'. "
