Ok all you pump users out there, where do you wear your pump? in your pocket? clipped to your belt? I have broken 3 clips in the last few months so I am looking into new ways to wear my pump.

I've had a pump for 13 years now and if I'm wearing skinny jeans or a dress, I will clip it to the middle of my bra. Otherwise, I use the leg pouch offered by Minimed.

I found clips got in the way, and were not durable, very weak pieces of plastic. Clothes at home, suit at work, sleeping, easiest just to put it in my pocket.

I've been on pump for almost three weeks now. I purchased a hard case w metal clip for non work days. For work days i wear mens jeans cuz pockets are deeper than womens jeans and i work outside all day so i keep in pocket. I purchased a flip belt for at night. My educator also gave me a thigh pouch for when i wear dresses or skirts. I have the bra pouch but haven't used it

In my pocket or in my bra. I tried the clip but mine broke too. The clip on my Medtronic pump is bulky :(

I usually just put my pump in my pocket. For those slinky dresses without pockets, I try to slip it into my bra. (I might have to get one of those thigh garters for the really clingy dress.) For pocketless clothing, I'll use the clip, or, if I can sew a small knit pocket into a lining where it won't show, I'll do that. I have several skirts that I've done that on and some work-out pants. (A lot of work-out clothing is now coming with media pockets that I find fit my pump…yahoo!) For my nightgowns, I've sewn a small knit pocket to keep my pump secure while I sleep.
