"unfortuantely this dress is a no bra and no spanks kind of dress! it's super body-consious and I can't even wear spanx with it. Thank you everyone with all your suggestions! I will have to go and play around with the dress. If it comes…"

Wearing a tight dress this weekend....can I disconnect from my pump for the night?

Hi everyone, I'm super new to this website and this is my first question I'd really love help firguring out! I'm going out this weekend and will be wearing a beautiful (and very tight) dress with NOWHERE to hide my Paradigm Insulin Pump without it throwing off the aesthetic. I'm wandering if it is okay to disconenct for the night and have my back up plan with me (like my flexpen?)Have any ladies out here encountered this issue before? What did you do to resolve it? I really don't wanna wear it…See More
