I don’t know anything about insulin pumps, but since you mentioned wearing it in your bra with dresses, does that mean you put it in your pocket if you wear pants? What if you wore some sort of shorts under the dress? Then it wouldn’t be the leg pouch you hate so much. Especially if your dress is tight/fitted, it might make it uncomfortable to have a pocket sewn into the dress. Sorry if my idea isn’t helpful.

My sister is on the pump and wears a lot of ball gowns for formals at school, so I consulted her. She has had pockets sewn in, attempted to hide it in her bra and used the garter for insulin pumps and the most luck she’s had is having a pocket sewn to the inside of her dress (around the skirt like picture #2). For my wedding (She’s my MOH) she’s wearing a tea length gown that I chose with her in mind because it had the pockets that she can cut into and lace the tube through.

I was wondering if you tried sewing a pocket into your dress?  I wear spanx a lot when I wear dresses and tuck it into the spanx which works really well, but I’m wearing a bulky ball gown. It’s already going to be an ordeal to go to the restroom.  I don’t really want to add additional trips to retrieve my pump.  And I really don’t need spanx in the dress; they would be solely for holding my pump (which seems really unneccessary).
