You completely beat me to this post!!! I was just going to ask the same things!!!
I went to the store today on my own for the first time in a very very very long time, and I hid behind my cart most of the time. However, I forget I have my accessory most of the time (unless it hurts and I can't ignore it), and I had a conversation with a woman standing openly and she never glanced at my tummy once. I was wearing a slightly baggy top, but it was sticking out a bit nonetheless.
I'm looking forward to it being healed more so I can wear pantied over it, and I have purchased a couple cute babydoll tops for the spring/summer. I wear a lot of collared shirts layered over a tank or camisole, so that kind of keeps it under wraps. However, I am still super nervous and concerned about people gawking.
I guess it's just something I have to get used to. : )
