I pump a lot and thanks to Simple Wishes Hands Free Pumping Bustier ($36), I can actually can get a little me time while I pump (providing it’s quiet where I’m pumping). I can also spend time with my kids, or even do the dishes.. while I pump (though it’s not as fun as the me time). I like that it was really easy to use. You fit the bustier to your body, the velcro back panel allows you to adjust the ribcage band size by 10 inches to adapt to your needs. When your pump parts are ready, you put the flanges through the openings and zip down (not up) the bustier.
There were many things I liked about it — it fit snugly ( it’s adjustable with velcro panels). You can wear it without or with straps – which can be configured in a halter, tank or racerback style. It zipped from the top to the bottom- which at first I thought it was odd, but worked really well. Especially with taking off the breast pump shields (attached to full bottles of milk.). Not a drop of precious milk spilled out of the breast shield openings on the bustier while pumping – the seal was tight (the opening is layered 4 ways with fabric). The only thing I didn’t like was that I kept† putting it on upside down and confusing myself, so to make sure I got it right, I attached a black hair band to the right strap on the bustier and my problem was solved!
Thank you to Simples Wishes for the product sample.
