Re: [IP] "Hiding" pump

Hi Kim -

I realize that this might not work with dresses and other women's clothes
that don't have pockets, but maybe it will help in some cases:

I always carry the pump loose in the front pocket of my clothes.  I cut a
small hole in the inside the pocket in the liner (near the top) then run the
tubing through the hole and reconnect.  This works great - the pump is
completely hidden, more protected and secure than having it on your
waistband, access is easy (just reach in your pocket), and you don't need to
wear clumsy "holders".   This works well with both jeans and dress pants.

If you're worried about the pocket liner unravelling after you cut the hole,
you can get a bottle of "fray chek" at a fabric store and dab it around the
hole, though I've found that this usually isn't necessary.
