Re: What Are You Wearing?

I wore a great dress today but my blood sugar crashed while I was walking home so I was too grumpy and sweaty to take a picture when I got here.

Which reminds me of a diabetes and fashion related issue: I need to figure out other ways of wearing my insulin pump. I wear it in my bra, which is unnoticeable most of the time, but I'm only a B cup, so the pump sticks out more than my boobs and shows through if i wear a tight shirt. There are thigh garters for pumps that one can buy, I think I might give one of those a try; it'd work under skirts and dresses, and would still be accessible.

Anyone else have issues that sometimes hinder their fashion-related self-expression?

Ummm...I have a huge head and I have a hell of a time finding caps that fit.

Okay, okay! Will do. But not today. I'm just wearing a variation of my going-to-the-gym uniform: loose t-shirt, leggings, and a pink Planet Fitness baseball cap because my hair is dirty. There is no fabulousness in sight.
You had me at "baseball cap".

^ I hate to disappoint you, but the only thing "baseball" about it is the style.

Oh yeah! Not right now, unless you count being overweight.

But for a year after my 2011 surgery, I had a wound vac that I wore in a cross-body bag. I had to wear clothes that allowed the tube to run from the vac to my lower back. Basically, I couldn't tuck a shirt in for a year. The strap caused my clothes to pill, so I mostly wore the same couple tops over and over and over. And I couldn't wear my beaded necklaces because I was afraid the strap would damage them.

And then for three months I had an infusion pump in a similar bag. Same issues as the vac, except this time it was a tube running to my arm.

I hope you're feeling better by now, thefashionablecorpse.

^Aren't medical devices a joy? Seriously, though, it sounds like you're recovered enough to no longer need them, and that's awesome!

Vain as it may sound, one of my biggest anxieties about starting the pump was about how it would look with my clothes. The infusion site itself is almost unnoticeable: they make special infusion sets for people who are athletic that are really small, unobtrusive, can handle a ton of moving around, and have really short tubing; my tubing is about 1.5 feet, and I can loop it around the pump a couple times and run it to the infusion site on my hip in such a way that it's tight enough not to bulge or snag and loose enough not to tug. The pump itself is the real problem. If I had bigger boobs it'd make hiding it between them a lot easier!

Have you tried belting tops and "blousing" them out a bit? A friend of ours uses the pump and she does that often. She also wears a lot of peplum tops, so she can wear the pump closer to her hip.

Thank you. It is definitely awesome!

I'm sure it would.

I have pretty much no ass. Which makes some pants an issue or interesting to wear.

Correct me if I'm wrong but eating too much is just not viable for tsq what with her type 1 diabetes.

And I know this is a specific issue and not really related to body image, but I've said it before: tsq, your boobs are fine.

Obviously not a medical issue (and I feel kinda silly complaining about it compared to major troubles like illnesses or injuries) but as a man being 5'3" can be a real pain in the ass when you shop for clothes.

I would have much luck browsing into the kid's department, but the presence of Mickey Mouse's face on my suits would seriously cramp my style, I fear.

By the way, today it's khaki shirt, stonewashed blue jeans, and beige sneakers. Kinda blah, but this morning I didn't feel like thinking about it too much. I guess sleeping 4 hours might be related to that. This evening I will probably attend another work-related social event, so I might try something a bit smarter.

Boob talk aside, today for a change I have a green T shirt with designer logo, dark blue chinos and belt, socks and black boots, green hoodie (a birthday present) and the usual bag. The streets got hit pretty bad.

I am currently wearing dark gray dress pants, an aqua peasant blouse (the color is like this guy: ), black-and-white striped trouser socks and gray clogs. I didn't bring a jacket today so hopefully the warm weather holds til I get home. New England... very unpredictable... I should know better.

Re: What Are You Wearing?

I just realized I'm actually wearing clothes! I got this shirt on:

But with some patched and slightly worn jeans. Those shorts in the pic are airy, but damn they are not the best looking thing ever...
