Re: [IPk] pump wearing dilemma

Di one of the Disetronic lady users will be wearing a similar dress to a
ball and she is going to try the arm/thigh belt - you've tried that before
though I think??? For that sort of dancing the pump would probably get in
the way if worn on the inside thigh.  Is the dress so tight you couldn't use
velcro fastenings on the inside of the dress?

Best of luck
