Are you frustrated trying to figure out where to put your tubed insulin pump when you're wearing a skirt or dress? I certainly have had moments where I wish I didn't have to dig into my bra to get the pump out, or have it making a huge pump on my waist if I wear a holster.
Erin Calhoun-Dulaney, inventor of the SkirtMyPump slip, joins us to talk about how she came up with this unique solution to pump placement.
Meet Erin Calhoun-Dulaney
Erin Calhoun-Dulaney has lived with T1D for 39 years. After years of frustration trying to figure out where to put her tubed insulin pump while wearing skirts and dresses, she invented the SkirtMyPump slip. It has a pocket specifically designed to be able to easily access your insulin pump.
With this slip, T1D women now have the freedom to wear any skirt or dress with an insulin pump.
You can buy the SkirtMyPump slip at skirtmypump.com, and you can connect with Erin @skirtmypump on Instagram.
