Re: [IP] "The Dress Dilemma"



I have taken out a couple of stitches, threaded the quick connect back
through, and not worried about the 1/4" that remains opens on a sweater
dress.  I know that some stick it in their bra -- unfortunately, that would
assume a bustline that I only begin to have when I first start nursing a
baby, but......If the dress has a rigid enough neckline, you could probably
clip it there too.  Then of course there is the "thigh thing" which began
sliding down as I was helping with Communion in church.  Funniest thing, I
haven't worn it since.  What feels like it should be tight enough without
nylons is NOT if it is worn on top of them.  Personally, I can't imagine
having to go hide in the bathroom to take insulin or check my pump, so those
are my options!
Take care,
Lori
