[IP] Dressing up
I will try and see if this works. I hope it makes the list:

I am struggling with this also. I have basically 2 dresses that I wear to
work. One is a jumper, so I can just thread the tubing between buttons and
put the pump in my pocket. The other is a longer dress with a jacket. I
feed the tubing up to the neckline and clip the pump on the neckline of the
dress and bra. (If I don't clip it to the bra, it pulls the dress down in
front and exposes my bra).
But the thing I am struggling with is that I am standing up in my sister's
wedding and I can't clip the pump to either the waist of my pantyhose or
anywhere at the neckline or bra. The dressmaker offered to sew a pocket
into the dress for me, but I'm afraid the weight of the pump will cause the
dress to hang funny.
I tried clipping it to the top of thigh-high stockings, but after awhile, it
started digging in. (Not to mention that if I clip it in the wrong place, I
have an odd bulge!) I tried wearing a body shaper slip and clipping it to
the hem of that, but the material is too slippery and the pump ends up
sliding off eventually. I will have to try the garter thing. I have also
thought of putting Velcro on the pump and on my slip. Any other suggestions
would be appreciated!
