RE: [IP] Tight-fitting clothes...BUT ...?



How is your company party set up?
If it is a buffet and a lot of eating while standing you will probably want
it in a secure place.  Some one recommended here not too long ago about
finding fabric in a very similar look to your outfit and attaching this to
the outside.  I know with some of my dresses this would work but not all.
Then slice a little hole in the seam for the tubing to go through.

If the food is mostly at a table.  Then even if you have it below the waist
you should be able to audio bolus without anyone even noticing.  If you
aren't comfortable with audio bolusing then you could probably pull it out
and no one but hubby would no better.

Thanks Jess for the help. I do have a Disetronic but thought that it might 
look a bit odd if i was groping through my dress....!!
I have given myself a bolus with my pump under my arm attached to my bra 
with a baby sock and had some strange looks. Just wondered if there was 
something I haven't thought of.
