Talk to the other companies, like Animas and Deltec and Dana or Disetronic.
Maybe one of them will have a rep who is a nudist also!       ;>)

I think it may depend on how dressed you feel with a pump.    There are ways
to wear it that are very discreet.   I wear my pump in an "Arm Thing", a
spandex band with a pocket to it that fits over the bicep.  I use one of the
shorter tubes and the Rapids sets with Disconnect.   That way it is very
easy to reach and deal with and I have excellent absorption in my arms,
YMMV.  Now if you object to wearing a 4 inch band on your arm, then maybe
you should stay with injections, but for me I would do it, nude or not.  :>)

Best bet??   Try it!!!    Get a loaner from one of these companies and try
it with saline solution.  That will let you know how "dressed" you'll feel
with a pump.
