I hate when my pump is in my bra and it starts alarming with others around. I just grin and play dumb until I can get somewhere and fix it. It did that to me last week at the nephro's office and I was all like, "Excuse me let me fix this." and had to turn around, unhook it and shut alarm off. He just laughed and said no problem.

I just started pumping but I use a Spibelt. Its a fanny pack for joggers..I keep it on all the time. They come in different designs...plain for work and flashy hot pink, etc for fun times.

I also wear my pump clipped to my bra...often get comments about the tubing hanging out lol. I am trying to design a camesol type garment to hold the pump when you don't want to clip it. I also came across a site that has some very cool accessories to make your pump into an accessorie! This girl has some great ideas! Check out her site here...

I love wearing my pump on my stomach when I wear a bikini. I wear it with a sense of pride. I like it and it is fun too. Don't really know why.

Hey Ladies,
I saw this group and I had to join. I love to be cute. Especially in the summer time. And I am always thinking... if you only knew what I have in my bra or is someone going to get a nice view and think I am carrying a bomb? Glad to know that I am not alone.

As someone with 'not much on top', I use Dede's method of the body-shaper with my pump in the inner thigh/groin area. Another great trick for the cooler months is to use a long (43") tubing and string the tube down my leg, out the bottom hem of my jeans/leggings, and keep my pump in my boots. I also have a 'thigh thing" I ordered from that is very useful for wearing around the upper thigh under dresses and skirts. You can also use a smaller of the same thing around your calf under pants as long as they are flared or bootleg. I find the summer months the most challenging....especially with skinny jeans/shorts and tank tops :( Any good suggestions out there? Where do yall wear your infusion sites with a bikini? And what about Dexcom (or other CGM) site? I hate feeling like a bionic woman getting stares all the time!

I'm looking to get the pump..but I saw somewhere online they make bras with pockets just for your pump...and other clothing too, not so stylish stuff..but I'm looking forward how to be pump sassy. LOL
Comment by SWEETS on January 23, 2011 at 10:24am
Good Idea, Thanks~
I went off the pump for 2 years, and need to go back on, it was often a drag for my silloute but i am determined to rock the sass outta this pump this time!
Go Sasssy PUMPERS!
Comment by Casandra on December 20, 2010 at 10:50pm

When it's hot and sticky in summer, I put the pump in a sleeping sock and then the whole sock in my bra, like women do with their phones... Only works when you're large and in charge!  I feel sorry for the itty bitty titty committee.  NOt sure I would be a pumper if i didnt' have the girls to hold all my go-go-gadgets!
