I heart ny - S4-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When Carrie arrives at the hospital room, Miranda is walking back and forth trying to break her water. When she turns back towards Carrie, you can see something sticking out prominently from under her hospital gown on the right side of her abdomen. The object appears to be swinging around on a line or wire as Miranda moves. When Miranda gets closer to Carrie and finally stops just in front of her; you can see the entire wire or line attached to the object slanting diagonally from her left shoulder, across her chest and down her abdomen, just right of the center. The protruding object, and line or wire must be her mic. (00:24:10)

To market, to market - S6-E1

There also appears to be something above the wire, showing through the material. She seems to be wearing some sort of contraption under her dress, and when she moves, the entire object moves loosely. Possibly this is her microphone and attached wire? (00:02:40)
