Re: [IPk] taking the pump off for a night



Hello Laura

I was at a ball in November and wore my pump all night.  It was also the
first dress I had woren since getting my pump 2 years ago.

M&S underwear was my trick I position the pump between my underwear body and
tights at the small of my back making sure the buttons were facing the right
way.

Had no probs, I was nervous of wearing my pump in case anyone saw it but as
my dad says its not a fashion item but a life support system

hope this is of some help Wendy
