Typically, I do one of the following:
- I put it in my pocket. Most of the time, this means it's visible. I do, however, have a couple dresses with pockets that allow me to hide the pump entirely by running the tubing through a tiny hole just inside the pocket. (I just cut a hole big enough to run it through then dab some "no fray" on the edges.)
- Clip it to the underside of the front of my bra. I'm busty, so this normally hides the pump-bump entirely if I'm trying to go for a more sleek fashion look. (When I do this, I first slip the pump into a little fabric pocket I sewed myself [some people use baby socks!] so it doesn't get all sweaty against my skin.)
- I clip it to the side of my underwear, slightly toward the front or back so I don't have a "lumpy" looking silhouette. This is what I almost always do when wearing a dress to work. (This also happens to be how I always wear it when I sleep.)
And then things just felt a little different. I continued walking and felt my pump slowly drooping... Huh, odd... Oh, crap! The elastic in my waist snapped!
It normally wouldn't have made much of a difference, but the weight of my pump kept inching it downward, and I had to keep trying to subtly pull it back up.
Droop, droop, droop, subtle hike! Droop, droop, droop, subtle hike!
At least, I hope it was subtle...
Nice. Who'd have thought my underwear would matter that much?
Luckily, it wasn't long until lunch, so I just slipped out to the Dollar General and bought a pack of underwear. Problem solved!
