RE: [IPk] To hold insulin pumps under skimpy clothes!?!

I looked at a picture of a bra pouch when I was chosing my pump. I have to
say that my first thought was 'it's designed by a man'! Didn't look like I
could hide it very well in the pouch at all - it would just sort of dangle
down! Anyway, had quite a lot of success with clipping (minimed pump) the

Hi Lesley
Do you have a Disetronic pump? If so, that makes sense.

the inside, if I want to be more discreet and my skirt isn't mega tight!
