Hi All!
I'm 26 year old Type I Diabetic (diagnosed at age 23). I was wondering if anyone had any tips on wearing a pump with dresses. I had found myself avoiding wearing dresses now because I don't know what to do with my pump. I have tried buying a bra pouch but it always looks ridiculous (I don't have much cushion up there to hide it). I have also tried a strap that goes around my thigh to hold it, but then I look ridiculous if the dress I want to wear is tighter fitting. I try my best to find dresses with pockets, but I can't always rely on that.
Any tips to wearing a pump with tighter fitting dresses/skirts?

Seems like I constantly struggle with where to put my pump! I've determined the best option for dresses is the thigh band. I used to allow it to dictate what I wore, I went off of it for a year, am now back on, and have decided to clip it where ever to whatever I want to wear & not worry so much about it showing (ie. when I where tight jeans/skirts), it's hard. Basically having a pump is a pain in the a$$, but, at the very same time, more convenient!!!

If you come up with a new solution, let me know!

to be honest i felt the same way abou the pump but i got sick of letting it dictate what i cn and cannot wear!! I tend to tuck mine into my tights or pants or tuck it into the strap of my bra!! i usually stick it anywhere where it will stay and not annoy the hell outta me!!!

I use my bra and place pump between my breast or on my side toward the back or I wear a slimming panties and put it on top side of panties there is also a leg strap. It really is not that noticeable. I had to learn to get past being vein and others have never asked.
