    Where can I purchase accessories for my Meditronic Paradigm Veo Mini Med? I am particularly interested in what accessories others wear when wearing summer clothes - dresses etc. so that the pump isn't obvious.

    There are various accessories that you can order over the phone to Medtronic on their website.
    For dresses etc. they sell a pump holder that goes on your leg.

    I hook mine in the centre of my bra or under my armpit in my bra. Feels weird and u look a bit odd rummaging around in your bra to bolus but much better than having to lift a dress up to get it off ur undies :)

    In your bra isn't such a good idea as compressing delicate breast tissue can cause cancer in the long term. Some people have tissue round the sides as well. I use a soft pump holder from AccuChek which hooks over the centre of your bra and hangs below, it doesn't show and it is very comfortable, and fits a Veo.

    The problem is you have to unhook it from above and get it out to adjust... or below if you have a top, not a dress on, that's better!
