Knickers with pockets for your pump.

I cannot somehow see how it would go unnoticed if it were central on my tummy, but I guess the Swedish ones hold the pump more or less where it sits when in my trouser pockets.

Wouldn't be any use with my pump. You need to be able to touch it to do anything. I kind of dislike the idea of pumps that have matching meters. Since they seem to go wrong much more often than pumps, plus it is just something else to add a chance of failure. I've seen pants for men with pockets (not really for pumps) but I think that is more for guys that walk about / sleep in just pants. I've always worn pyjama bottoms since I was around 20, I wore just pants as a teen.

Pumps with meters isn't in it - it's the remote control you mean, surely?

I hadn't noticed either of mine go wrong (well the piston winding mechanism did fail on the Combo, but that was Knob all to do with Bluetooth!)

I can't say I'd noticed more people whinging about Roche pumps than there seem to be with other makes - none of em seem to have that many failures, do they?

I wouldn't actually want any of them except possibly the American ones - but they deliberately don't actually show you the pocket - so you have to send them the money before you can see if they look any good - and if they are useless when you get them they are non-returnable!

Those brief ones are very pretty - but some of us are no longer the right shape to get away with underwear that brief anyway (if indeed we ever actually were!), or wouldn't entertain it anyway cos it isn't cotton!

I do have to say that these days I am happier with Sloggi Maxi ones that come up to the waist.  Since I acquired a tummy I find the hipster type tend to roll down all the time.

Liam, I think you'll find that all men's pants have 'pockets' already!  :P
