If you are a working mom, you know that the breast pump bra is one of the best inventions for nursing moms! If you have to be away from your baby for extended times or you can’t feed your baby at the breast…it is so helpful to have hands-free pumping options like these.
Many times women have given up breastfeeding because of the inconvenience of having to pump. These bras have enabled moms to hook up the breast pump and continue multi-tasking without a second thought!
It is also can help the process to be more efficient because when you don’t have to keep your hands on the pump, you’re not focused on it, therefore you are relaxed, and this helps with the flow of milk. You can return phone calls, take notes or whatever else you need to do.
Popular Hands-Free Pumping Options
There are several brands of breast pump bras, all seem to do the same thing, aid in helping to use a breast pump hands free.
The Simple Wishes Hands Free Pumping Bra offers the support of using a breast pump in both a strapped and strapless bra. This bra has a two inch zip-front that makes it easy to work with most all the brands of breast pumps. The zipper works with a Velcro back and the fabric is a very soft and comfortable cotton / Spandex blend, making it easy and simple to wear and use.
The next type is called PumpEase™ hands-free pumping supports. This support is as good looking as it is handy. Made to hold most breast pumps in place by securing the pump firmly to the breast, allowing you to be hands free. The polyester spandex blend maintains its shape for many many pumping sessions while remaining soft and breathable. This product comes in cute prints that make them fun to wear and use.
The third one is called Easy Expression Pumping Bustierand works basically like the first two by holding the breast pump in place allowing you to be hands free to do other things. This bustier has a zip-front design too which makes wearing and using it super easy. Made from a comfortable cotton / lycra blend so it’s soft as well as useful.
Both the Easy Expression and PumpEase are meant to be used with a nursing bra, the Simple Wishes is the total bra and support in one and doesn’t need an additional nursing bra.
All three of these have very good product reviews and recommendations. Nursing moms, especially those who have to pump either because of work, or because they have a preemie or multiples, find the breast pump bras a lifesaver and enables them to properly feed their babies breast milk for a lot longer than if they didn’t have this extra help.
