Benefits of double pumping with the Hands-free™ Pumping Bustier

Double pumping is a particularly good option if you need to express frequently, because it allows you to collect more milk – 18% on average 1 – than pumping from each breast in turn. Another bonus is the milk collected has a higher energy content than milk obtained by single pumping.1 If you’re using a Medela double electric breast pump, the Hands-free™ Pumping Bustier has been specially designed to fit it.

How to use the Hands-free™ Pumping Bustier

There are four simple steps to using your Hands-free™ Pumping Bustier: 
•    Hook: Fasten the bustier at the front.
•    Zip: Zip it up from the bottom.
•    Insert: Place a breast shield on each breast beneath the bustier, with your nipples centred in the tunnels. 
•    Attach: Finally, attach a connector to each breast shield.
It’s as easy as that – now you’re ready for hands-free pumping!

Taking care of your Hands-free™ Pumping Bustier

To wash it, simply pop in a delicate-garment bag and can be washed up to 60°C (140 °F) cycle. The bag will prevent it getting tangled up with other clothes, and it’s best to avoid washing the bustier with items that have Velcro fastenings for the same reason! Full washing and colour-care instructions are given on the packaging.

How do I measure my size?

We have 5 easy steps for you to measure yourself:

I'm usually a size M – which size would you recommend?

To find your correct size simply follow these easy steps on "How do I measure my size".

Does this bra fit with electric pumps?

Our Hands-free™ Pumping Bustier is designed to fit the breast shields of most electric pumps.

Can I feed from one breast and pump from the other simultaneously using this?

The Hands-free™ Pumping Bustier is designed for comfortable hands-free pumping with single or double electric pumps. You can nurse and pump with Medela 3in1 Nursing and Pumping Bra, which is designed for nursing, in-bra pumping and hands-free pumping.

Is this bra only suitable for pumping or can it double as a nursing bra as well?

The Hands-free™ Pumping BRA is designed for pumping only with single or double electric pump. If you want to nurse your baby on one side whilst you pump on the other, we recommend you use our 3in1 Nursing and Pumping Bra as this is our most advanced product to support you with nursing and pumping, even simultaneously.
