If you want to try hands-free pumping, using a pumping bra, such as Medela’s Easy Expression Bustier, makes it simple and convenient – plus it has a secure fit for added confidence.

What is a pumping bra?

A pumping bra (also known as a hands-free bra) holds your breast shields during expressing, leaving your hands free to operate the controls. This also means you can get on with other things while pumping - ideal for busy mums! Some pumping bras have straps, but these can make them tricky to put on in a hurry. This is why the Medela Easy Expression Bustier has a strapless design, with no-slip support to keep it reliably in place.

Benefits of double pumping with the Easy Expression Bustier

Double pumping is a particularly good option if you need to express frequently, because it allows you to collect more milk – 18% on average1 – 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 Easy Expression Bustier has been specially designed to fit it.

How to use the Medela Easy Expression Bustier

There are four simple steps to using your Easy Expression 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!

Will my breast shields stay in place when pumping hands-free?

Don’t worry, the breast shield openings are reinforced to hold them securely. What’s more, the Easy Expression Bustier’s no-slip support keeps it reliably in place without straps to dig in or cause aching shoulders. And the stretch material doesn’t just help keep your breast shields in position, it also adapts to your changing body for a great fit whatever your shape.

Taking care of your Easy Expression Bustier

The Easy Expression Bustier is machine washable. Simply pop in a delicate-garment bag and put through a gentle 30°C (86 °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.

All women are different and Medela embraces this diversity. In case you cannot find your size outlined on our size chart, we advise you to try the closest Medela size to your measurement.
