"Well, I use the calf ones b/c they help increase circulation in my calves, which seems to alleviate sore muscles? I would not want to run with the tube on my calf b/c of the tube but the thigh thingy, which I don't use that much on my thigh,…"

Kristin replied to Carly's discussion 'Pump Accessories'
"The pump in between my breasts gives me a "third breast look". So I can't get away with that either. Some women wear it on the side of their bra, underneath their arm pit. I haven't tried that before, but I always imagined that…"
