“I rarely get excited about a product. I didn't receive anything for this review. I love this product and I am only disappointed in myself that I didn't purchase it sooner as I have been eyeballing it since giving birth 6 months ago. I have been looking for an easy, comfortable strap to pump hands free. I am done. Third time is a charm. I have purchased two other types of hands free bra/strap. This product is by far the easiest to put on. It has easy front hooks to latch. It fits over my nursing cami easily.
Why is this different from other hands free products? I had difficulties zippering up the Medela hands free bra and I purchased a strap that was a simple Velcro design, but because of its one size fits most design, there was a lot of strap leftover making it cumbersome. Both of those aren't conducive to compression and the massaging that I need to do because of the stiff material. This product is made out of stretchy fabric and is soft.”

"I just wanted to say how MISERABLE it is with a new baby, trying not to fall asleep pumping breastmilk while holding the collection bottles in your hands! My husband ordered me a PumpEase Hands Free Pumping Bra and I ❤❤❤ it!!! I've been using it for 7 months now and just ordered one for a good friend's baby shower, probably one of the most important gifts a pumping mommy could get!"
Keesha M. via Facebook April 2016
"The general reaction to the Belly Beads has been positive. Those that have received them have been very pleased with them and excited to use them. They like that the size of the string can be adjusted. Many comments were that the smallest one is so small and that it can change so much in just 10 days. The Snugabell Belly Beads are a nice product and this order will last us for quite a while. . . . Thanks again for this product and we appreciate your service."
Teresa Smith, BS, CHES WIC Outreach Coordinator - Davis County Health Department March 2016
"GAME CHANGER! I love this hands-free bra... it allows me to multi-task while pumping. The three rows of hooks allow for different scenarios (swollen chest, worn over clothes / blanket, etc, weight loss/gain). Wears very comfortably, but provides great support for my flanges."
Erika via Amazon March 2016
"This hands-free pumping bra allowed me to eat lunch for about 6 months when I worked as an RN and pumped 3 days a week for my exclusively breast-fed baby! I owe a big chunk of my postpartum sanity to this genius invention. If you work at all and are attempting to pump at work, this is a no-brainer! I would take my pumping break at lunch, get set up to pump, and then eat my lunch with TWO HANDS while the pumping bra held everything in perfect position. It also made me feel completely covered if someone were to walk in the room where I was pumping. The ONLY thing that shows besides obviously your belly and back, is the tiny circle for your nipples to slip through. I was able to just unclip my nursing bra and slip this pumping bra right over. It worked wonderfully with my Medela pumping equipment! Could not recommend a better pumping bra."
Alisha L. via Amazon February 2016
"I couldn't live without my PumpEase!! It was a gift from a friend after I had my baby who was in the NICU and it was the best gift ever!"
Megan O. via Facebook January 2016
"It is a very sexy getup and my husband can't keep his hands off me. Luckily for me my PumpEase gives me 2 free hands to fend him off"
Kim O. via Amazon December 2015
"The size chart worked very well for me. My PumpEase fits exactly as I expected (a little snug - but that's what you need to hold the cups in place to pump)."
Maya via Amazon December 2015
"Could not have exclusively pumped without my PumpEase. Was hard to justify the cost at first but it more than paid for itself by making the whole process less stressful (and messy)."
Julie via Amazon December 2015
"Buying my PumpEase! My pump is arriving tomorrow. Let the milking begin LoL!"
Pamela Atoche via Snugabell November 2015

"My PumpEase fits me at 44" comfortably. Works as expected. A must have for pumping. I also use it backwards with nursing pads through the night."

"I LOVE my PumpEase and use it everyday. I'm your #1 fan!"
Katie Garza - Mrs USA 2015 & Founder, Pumping for Preemies via email September 2015
"Not gonna lie, mine looks almost as good as the day I got it. It may have some slight wear and tear, but I used it for a year and an half and will break it out again in about two months. Love my PumpEase!"
Shelly R. via Facebook June 2015
"As a regular pumper (4x a day in the office), PumpEase is invaluable. I know you can go cheaper by cutting a hole in an old sportsbra, but as a cup size 38K since the baby was born, sportsbras that fit me run $75 and up. I use a size Large on the loosest setting and it hold the pump flanges in place well enough for me to sit at my desk and keep working without worries about leaks or falling off. I also have an XL that I use at home when I need to, but I have to pay more attention because it is a little loose.You can use it on top of a nursing bra, or topless and it serves its function well."
Anne K via Amazon June 2015
"PumpEase makes pumping at work so much less of a clock watching experience. It's comfortable and fits without causing any discomfort during those times where you are a little behind your normal schedule. I highly recommend this product to all the pumping moms out there."
Danielle C. via Amazon.com June 2015
"I love it! I have a Walmart pump so I was worried the PumpEase bra wouldn't work, but it works fine. Also, if you haven't pumped in a couple hours make sure you have the pump set up when you try it on; I tried it on as soon as I got it and it turned my boobs into super soakers lol! :P"
Toni S. via Amazon.ca June 2015
A happy husband - - - "Purchased this PumpEase for my wife, as she is having to pump frequently to supplement our baby. Her wrists had started to hurt from holding the parts up during the pumping process and she was limited to just sitting there the whole time. She loves this! Now she is able to read, play on her phone, etc while she pumps. Plus, she says this does a great job keeping things tight so no milk leaks out."
Benjamin C. via Amazon.com May 2015
"I ordered a medium, which is a tad small for me, but since I'm still hanging on to some baby weight I would rather a little tight than to big! My PumpEase works really well and I can finally pump and eat or help my toddler read while I'm pumping! It will be great to have when I go back to work! I don't know why I never got it with either of my other kids!"
Kristen P. via Amazon.com May 2015
I discovered Snugabell's website and the PumpEase about 3 years ago. I remember that my husband kind of laughed when I showed it to him. 2 kids later, and both myself and my husband have ordered PumpEase gift certificates for friends and coworkers who have had, or are having kids. And who want to breastfeed. I haven't had to pump for about a year now, but I still rave about how awesome the PumpEase is. Not to mention how cute it is ;)

"One of the best things I ever bought!! Made my hectic life (at that time) much less stressful! Plus I had hands free to do something else to take my mind off of pumping."
Angela W. via Amazon April 2015
"I would advise all mothers get PumpEase if you are using a dual pump. You'll need the extra hands free."
K. Tong via Amazon.ca March 2015
"I LOVE LOVE LOVE the PumpEase bra. I'm actually on here trying to order another since I seem to have lost one of my two bras. I've become incapable of pumping without my PumpEase! This was initially recommended to me by one of the OB/GYNs I worked with.
I've been using PumpEase for about 6 years now (between 3 kids). I initially bought 2 of them and I have one at home and one for work. I LOVE it. I always put it on my MUST HAVE list for new moms. They've held up after lots of pumping between 3 kids!...and on my 7th month wondering if I can survive with only 1 bra for the last 5+ months of my pumping journey.
I don't have to take off my normal bra to pump, I just slide it up. I also don't have to get undressed!
Easy to put on with bra clasps. Lasted me many years and still going strong!
I love being productive when I'm pumping. I am in my office and working while pumping. I would hold my baby. Read a book. Hands free driving!
The have cute patterns! . . . Yes who's looking at them? But it's nice to wear something cute during a not so sexy stage of life.
Adjustable with 3 clasps. I'm down to the tightest on a small, but my bottles don't slip.
Slits are easy to use, place the cones in!
Runs a little big and stretches a tiny bit. Small size and I wear 34C
Stretches over time.
I recommend a good pumping bra regardless because it makes life so much easier and pumping less of a burden! Good luck!"
Y.T. "U" via Amazon March 2015
"The PumpEase bra is fantastic! Sizing chart made it easy to pick the right size. The bra is very easy to put on and is comfortable. Thank you for making such a great product and making pumping a bit easier! I wish it could be put in the dryer though - can't find a good time to wash it and air dry it because I use it so often."
Karen N. via Amazon.ca February 2015
"It's comfortable and stretchy - - The PumpEase bra is a must-have accessory for hands-free double pumping. It's comfortable and stretchy, but holds the flanges snug against my breast. Although the line of hook and eye closures can get kind of fiddly, it's much better than the rip of velcro, which can wake up the baby or let the whole office know what I'm up to. I've even left it on over my bra and under my shirt during the day at work to eliminate one step from the tedium of pumping."
Amy K. via Amazon February 2015
"I bought the PumpEase bra for my wife after the birth of our first child. At first she was skeptical, and actually almost sent it back after the first use. By the third time she used it she was a huge fan. She is using this with the Medela Pump in Style Advanced and the flanges fit very well. It fits well over her nursing bras too."
Olex C. via Amazon February 2015
"Thank you so much for offering this great opportunity to breastfeeding support groups. I was floored and ecstatic to receive a set of Belly Beads. The homemade set I had been using were falling apart and I could not touch it to pass it around as I am allergic to latex and it contained a rubber ball. This has worked out beautifully and eased the minds of several mothers at our meetings since receiving it."
Michelle D. via email January 2015
"Thank you again, Snugabell, for having such pretty things for mommies to use! PumpEase is so convenient to use at work because I can just slip it on over whatever bra I'm already wearing. I don't have to remove my shirt or anything. I just love it!!!"
Monica P. via Facebook December 2014
"I love this PumpEase pumping bra, I ended up buying 3 more. It really can be worn over your normal bra comfortably. Now when I see specialty stores selling the Medela one I feel sorry for all the moms struggling with that damn zipper. It kind of runs big so if you need a XL in the Medela you can possibly wear a L or M in this one at least I can."
S. Sower via Amazon November 2014
"The PumpEase bra is an absolute necessity for breastfeeding mommas! It has made it possible for me to continue breastfeeding my son since returning to work. I’m able to send emails and make phone calls as normal throughout my three workday pumping sessions. In the morning, I pump wearing my PumpEase bra while doing my hair and makeup. At night, I pump while washing my son’s bottles from daycare! I even pump while on walks with my son. I hang my pump on the stroller, strap on my PumpEase bra, put a cover on and go! Thank you for allowing me to live a normal life, while nourishing my baby and getting my pre-pregnancy body back! This is one of the best investments I’ve ever made!"
Ashley Hodges via email October 2014
"So grateful to have my PumpEase. I had an unexpected delivery of my little guy at 33 weeks. The PumpEase is making my pumping experience so much easier."
Kerri F. via Facebook October 2014
"The PumpEase bra Fits like a snug t-shirt, not restrictive. First one I've found that works for large breasts. I'm a 36F and the large works perfect. The Medela hands free was too tight."
Laura L. via Amazon.com October 2014
"This PumpEase pumping bra is great. It's much easier to get on and off than the Medela one, and the material is much nicer. This is a must have for pumping moms!"
Jennifer P. via Amazon.com September 2014
"I love your product and can't imagine pumping without it. I've been using PumpEase for two kids now. I've been nursing for 3 years and 1 month straight - 9 months of that during pregnancy and 8 months tandem! I pumped at work for my daughter until she was 14 months and am now doing it for my 8 month old son.
"Thank you for your product and your story of pumping moms!
Hannah Ferguson via email September 2014
"Package arrived on time and the item was exactly as expected. The PumpEase bra works great (fits perfectly size wise and with my medela pumping accessories). Would recommend this product to any pumping mom that wants to have their hands freed up while pumping."
Nicole B. via Amazon.com August 2014
"I had something similar to this when I was nursing my daughter 9 years ago. My cousin recently had a premie and of course it is a little harder to pump when your baby isn't home. So between this little cute pumping bra and the mother's milk tea, you can just call her Elsie. She loves this product!!!"
Monique C. via Amazon.com July 2014
" I love your PumpEase! I breastfed my baby for an entire year despite being in college and working with 7 other kiddos! I couldn't have done it without my polka dotted extra hand! Love it!"
Ruth B. via Facebook July 2014
"How did I ever pump without it???"
Christine W. via Amazon.com June 2014
"Already LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the PumpEase and Wet Bag... they are with me all the time! I'm a physician and it's been a lifesaver for pumping and staying exclusively breastfeeding my daughter, and the cherries make me happy! Getting more supplies so I can have a backup set when washing. Bought mine in St Louis at a nursing/baby store, Kangaroo Kids; they highly recommend it. Thank you!!!!"
Colleen Claassen via Snugabell.com June 2014
"This item is perfect for double-pumping - keeps your hands free and it's very secure (and I'm a 42DD girl). How nice to be able to read or work on the computer while pumping instead of being held hostage by holding the pumps/bottles. Highly recommend the PumpEase bra."
Naomi via Amazon.ca June 2014
"Love this hands free bra. Super soft an I adore the pattern. I was worried about size, but the medium fit me perfectly (36DD)."
Stephanie C. via Amazon.ca May 2014
"This is a must have item! Very soft, comfortable material...not to mention adorable. Always a plus when product does exactly what you expect. The wet bag is great for many uses too, especially since it is waterproof. I have already recommended this product to multiple friends and will continue to do so."
Alysen S. via Amazon.com May 2014
"Easy transaction. I got what I needed without any hassles. Great product as well. I've used it several times already since I received it and it's exactly what I needed."
Bianca B. via Amazon.ca April 2014
"This was one of the best products I have ever bought. It made pumping at work so much easier. Cute, easy to use, and works well."
Megan M. via Amazon.com April 2014
"Great product. Makes multitasking while pumping much easier. I tried to make my own using a bandeau top I had but the top was too tight and I feared I was compressing ducts. This bra fits comfortably and is adjustable. Worth it."
Angela P. via Amazon April 2014
"LOVE my PumpEase Organic! It's *so* soft! I only use glass bottles & I LOVE how well the PumpEase is designed that it can stand up to the weight of even glass bottles! Thank You!"
Deidrea H. via Facebook April 2014
"Like everyone else, I suppose, our decision came down to Simple Wishes or the Snugabell PumpEase. We're buying a PumpEase because both products seem to work great for the women who use them and yours is MADE IN CANADA. That's a distinction that matters to us."
Adrien V. via snugabell.com April 2014
"Thank you for your awesome products!! PumpEase is making it so much easier for me to get a few things done while pumping to keep up my supply. I wish I had known about them when I had my first!"
Jennifer W. via Facebook April 2014
I purchased the PumpEase after seeing it in a store while visiting my parents in Toronto. Wish I had seen it months earlier. The PumpEase is fantastic. I can do almost anything while pumping now and that has included baking cookies, emptying the dishwasher, working on the computer and making meals!
Jessica Stock via email March 2014
"I can get so much done while pumping! I've recommended it to multiple people!"
Lola B. via Amazon March 2014
"I just wanted to thank you for my PumpEase; it is a life changer!! Not only has it given me my hands back, the pump actually works a lot better and yields more milk than when I held the pump. It really is a great product. And the material feels so nice and smooth on my back. I really am surprised at how much better the suction is with the bra, vs holding the bottles."
L. Biggar via email March 2014
"I tried different pumping bras and PumpEase was always my go-to and favorite. The others became backups on laundry day :)"
Yuliana P. via Facebook February 2014
"The bra works perfectly with my Medela PISA! It's super comfortable, and is very nicely made. Not to mention, I received a really wonderful follow-up e-mail from the company checking to see if it was working well for me. You have to appreciate a company that actually cares about it's customers feedback."
Genevieve C. via Amazon February 2014
"PumpEase helped my 18 months of pumping stretch to 3 years of breastfeeding my 12-weeks-premature triplets through NICU, three healthy RSV/cold/flu seasons and everything in between here in North Carolina. Thanks for providing a fantastic product!"
Jenny M. via Facebook February 2014
"I loved my PumpEase! Saved my back and hands for two years of pumping!"
"I'm in love with my PumpEase hands-free bra! Just had to share ... I've tried other bras but wasn't too fond of them for one reason or another. I'm a 38I (yes, the letter after H!), so finding something that held the flanges against me but was supportive without being constricting was difficult. A friend bought this for me and I LOVE IT! ... So easy to get in and out of, it fits perfectly, doesn't hold the flanges against me too tight, and the flanges don't feel as though they may fall out when the bottles are full either. I was doing this limited hands free before (propping bottles on or in between my legs), but now I can sit up straight and not worry about bottles falling!"
Alison A. via Facebook January 2014
"I'm obsessed with my PumpEase! Makes pumping and life with two little ones just that much easier!"
"Love this bra! Really happy with the price and quality of the product. I looked online all over before coming across this bra, and I am really glad I purchased it."
Susan K via Amazon December 2013
"I haven't used it yet, as I am not due until May, but it is very well made!!! I can tell it is going to hold up very well!!"
Sarah G. via Amazon December 2013
"I have two of these now. They're so much better than the medela pump bra. I really could not have survived this long without these!"
Jessica R. via Amazon December 2013
I couldn't be happier with my PumpEase bra! I do not know how I got by pumping 8 times a day without this awesome product. What an awesome invention! It's pretty and comfy and makes the whole pumping process so much more enjoyable. Thank you!!!
Jessica Howell, MI December 2013
Ashley via Voicemail November 2013
"Great product, I like it better than the Medela hands-free. True to size chart recommendation."
Catherine S. via Amazon November 2013
"Item as described & actually better then I thought :) I love the material & it's nice to have a design instead of the plain jane white or black ones! The hook & eye closure I was a little concerned about, but now not at all!"
Leia G. via Amazon October 2013
"I have only used this item once as I just received it. But I will say that I loved it. To be a rather large chested woman, especially since pregnancy, this is the first item I have found that fit me. It even worked with my Even Flo pump that has a rather heavy top operating system and allowed me to be hands free. The fit was secure and exactly what I was looking for."
Dorren O. via Amazon October 2013
"I love this! I was skeptical on what size to order at first because I am a 38E and the chart said to order medium. I am so happy I did because the material is stretchy and I am actually using the middle row of hooks. I haven't had any issues with it becoming loose and I used it 4 times a day for 8 weeks now. I am buying another just for a back up."
Chella H. via Amazon September 2013
"I had been an exclusively pumping mom for 14 weeks (nursing wasn't in the cards for baby and I). I tried a few hands free pumping bras, but none fit right. I was tired and gave up looking, relegating myself to the office to hold the flanges 8 times a day while I got my supply established. A week before I was scheduled to return to work, I found out about the PumpEase. I ordered one, somewhat skeptically, and it is amazing. Holds the flanges secure and I am able to do other things while I pump. Combined with a battery powered breastpump, and I am a happy camper. It's very comfortable to wear and also washes up nicely. I was between sizes so ordered bigger (medium vs. small). I do have to have it on the smallest size, I wonder sometimes if it would fit better if I had went with the small, but it fits, so I haven't worried about it too much."
"If you have tried other hands free bras and are skeptical, I highly recommend you give it one more try and order this one!"
Elizabeth P. via Amazon September 2013
"Had such a great experience I ordered again! Love my PumpEase! Allows me to pump while I do other things. I HIGHLY recommend Snugabell!!!"
Erin S. via Amazon August 2013
"One of the few times I'm able to take a few minutes for myself is when I'm pumping. (I know, I know, having the baby around is good for milk production, but my little guy LOVES the pump. Buttons! Wires! Tubing! It's a disaster.) I love my PumpEase - with both hands free I can actually answer my email or update baby's Tumblr."
Tara W. via email August 2013
"I love my PumpEase products! I was given the pink Best for Babes PumpEase and black and white polka dot wet bag as a gift. Having gone through one baby without them I can honestly say that they make my life so much easier! Trying to manage pumping and toddler wrangling is a challenge that requires all the help I can get. I don't know how I would manage without them!"
Sheena R. via Facebook August 2013
"I absolutely LOVED my PumpEase since I only ever exclusively pumped. Thanks to handsfree, I pumped as I drove to and from work everyday for 10.5 months."

"This has been a life saver! I work part time and need to pump during the day, this has allowed me to be completely hands free. I have a bigger chest and a smaller rib cage....34DDD since the baby, I ordered a medium and it fits perfect. The bottom band isn't tight at all, but it still stays up great and I have had no issues with it falling down. I also love the design. I ordered the Galaxie Black."

Lisa Rose via Facebook July 2013
"My daughter is almost 5 months and I just got this a few weeks ago. I bought it originally so I could snack at work while pumping, since it is hard enough to find time to pump. My only regret is that I didnt' buy this sooner!! The best part is that my back has relief finally! Holding the breast pump parts and leaning over was seriously hurting my already bad back. With this bra I can sit with great posture and have hands free! Love it!!"
Melissa B. via Amazon July 2013
"Love it. True to size. Makes me feel sexier while pumping if that is possible. LoL."
Coleen via Amazon June 2013
"I'd like to send all of you at Snugabell a big huge thank you for making an AWESOME product in the PumpEase! With the help of my PumpEase, I reached my goal of pumping for a year with my daughter and just finished weaning her less than a week ago at 15 months. :) It's the gift I now give to all my pregnant friends, and I look forward to using mine for another year with my second daughter. :)"
Trista M. via email June 2013
"I got so many compliments on my @ToniCollection nursing top all weekend. People loved that it didn't feel like a nursing top and it was professional."

The Total Wellness Doc and Mom via Facebook May 2013
"This is one product that actually does what it advertises to do. I have been using it since I started to work again two weeks ago and it works like a charm. I work 12 hour shifts in a busy ER with only short breaks. Being hands free means A LOT ! Gone are the days of having to chose between eating or pumping during my break time, I can actually do both and finish both breasts in 10 min flat! A really great thing in a work environment like mine where every minute counts. I wish I had known about the bra during my first experience at pumping for my first child three years ago. It would have been able to reduce my anxiety regarding having the time to express breast milk. It's a must buy for every new mother who is considering pumping breastmilk. Already recommended it to all my friends. Thank you! Money well spent!"
Zee via email April 2013
"I used and loved my PumpEase with my first daughter, and it has now come in extremely handy, as my second was 6 weeks premature and has spent two weeks in hospital, during which I've been exclusively pumping. All the nurses I see think my PumpEase is the greatest invention ever (I agree!!!), and can't believe they've never seen them before. Thanks again for an awesome product!"
Pam MCCaughan via Facebook April 2013
"A little expensive but well worth it. I put off purchasing a pump bra until I went back to work, I wish I would have bought one right away!"
Anna S. via Amazon April 2013

Jeaneen G. via Amazon March 2013
"Received item quickly and was exactly as expected! I love this bra. I had originally purchased the Medela pumping bra but hated the zipper. The three sets of hooks and eyes really make this much more usable. And who doesn't love polka dots?"
Courtney D. via Amazon March 2013
"I said enough is enough. I've spent thousands preparing for this baby, and I wasn't going to spend one more dime on some gimmick. After four weeks of struggling to maneuver pumps, cords and giant boobs while trying to stay awake and maybe even enjoy a cup of tea at work, I said screw it, I'm buying one of those hands-free bras. It arrived, and oh my god WHY DID I NOT BUY THIS SOONER?!?! I was a little worried that it would be too flimsy to handle my 32Ks (sigh) but it holds up (no pun intended) just fine. Don't think, just buy."
Emma via Amazon March 2013
"Thank you for creating the PumpEase hands-free pumping bras. I am an EPer and have made it an entire year. I could not have lasted this long without my "cherry thing" as my older child calls it. Love this product!"
Lindy M. via Facebook February 2013
"Just got my BfB's PumpEase hands-free pumping bra and I'm in love! Had been using another product previously, but had heard good things about the PumpEase and wanted to try it. I work full time and pump 3x/day for my 9.5 month old so hands free pumping is essential. My only regret is that I didn't know about this from the beginning. Very happy momma :)"
Jessica Ann Black via Facebook February 2013
"@PumpEase I used PumpEase while I was nursing and loved it! :)"
"I love the PumpEase bra. I'm even typing this response while pumping. It is an excellent addition to the supplies of busy working moms like me. The bra provides good support and is truly hands free. It took me a little while to figure out the easiest way to insert the flanges of the pump but eventually got the hang of it.
I also have harvested more milk since I am not stressed out as much holding up bottles with both hands. I can also pump longer since I am less focused on watching output since I can do other tasks at work like answering pages and typing."
Dr. Monique via Amazon February 2013
"Easy purchase and fast delivery. Hands-free has changed my life when it comes to pumping. Now I can multi-task... read, shop online, whatever. The cute polka dot pattern is a bonus."
Tara M. via Amazon February 2013
"Thanks PumpEase for such a great great lifesaver of a product! I live and work in a country where despite the rhetoric on being pro-family and pro-babies, breastfeeding is not widely practiced and welcome. PumpEase has made the transition to work so much easier for me and allows me to continue to be bonded with my baby girl even though I spend so many hours away from her daily! I have been prompted a few times by Snugabell to leave a feedback on my experience... I would like to have my actions speak for themself... I am ordering a THIRD (and FOURTH) piece now!!!"

I received my PumpEase in the mail the other day and I couldn't be happier. I'm a second time mom and I'm pumping exclusively again due to latch issues. With my first child, I found that my wrists ached from holding the pump in place. I ended up rigging up my own pump holder contraption that was awkward but freed my hands. This time around I wanted to find a better alternative and that's when I remembered seeing the PumpEase on an episode of Dragons Den. I ordered it just before my second child was born to have on hand for occasional pumping. Now that I am pumping exclusively for my infant son and have a 2 year old daughter running around, having my hands free to help my daughter out when she just can't wait for mommy to be done really makes my hectic life just a little easier. Thanks!

"OMG, just let me say how happy I was to have the foresight to buy the PumpEase! That thing is THE BOMB!! I hadn't really planned on pumping right away, but due to some damage that the kiddo inflicted on me on day 3, I've had no choice. So now I can let the gals heal a bit. I love the fabric and the fit - and the hubby thinks that it's cute to at least attempt stylishness with the Snowy Leopard pattern. ;)
Also, I have the breast milk storage magnet on my fridge, and have been consulting it regularly! Thanks, Wendy!"

"Currently nursing, pumping, and knitting/tweeting. I don't have a super hero cape but I do have a @PumpEase hands-free bra and it's AWESOME!"
"The PumpEase made hands-free pumping possible for me! Finally I had the freedom to accomplish other tasks like check my email or make a phone call while I was pumping. When you are trying to pump enough milk for twins you are doing a lot of pumping! This is a major time saver for me and I would recommend the PumpEase to anybody who is expressing milk regardless of how many babies you have."
Vairdy via email January 2013
"I can't believe I made it two months without a pumping bra! This is a total life-changer, let me tell you. Comfortable to wear and truly hands-free! I enjoy it immensely."
Bridget W. via Amazon January 2013
"I just wanted to say thank you for inventing the PumpEase! I am a first time mom to beautiful twin girls that I was unable to breastfeed. After 7 weeks of attempted breastfeeding, I finally decided to exclusively pump (since I was doing so after every attempt to bf anyway). I have been exclusively pumping since they were born on July 29/12. I owe part of my pumping success to you, without the PumpEase, I would never have gotten this far and my girls would have never benefited from receiving the breast milk that I so badly wanted to provide them with. My goal is to continue for 12 months, and as much as I dread putting the horns on, I think back to the first weeks when I was stuck holding the silly things not able to even scratch my nose for fear of spilling breast milk I worked so hard to pump...I laugh and realize, it's not so bad! Thank you!!!"
Karolina Krokos via email January 2013
"I would like to thank you for the great product. I bought a PumpEase hands-free pumping bra for myself about 2 months ago and it was very useful. While pumping, I can now multi task, such as eating a proper meal and also picking up my 9 month old daughter. I also love the fact that there are so many levels of tightness to choose from as the breasts swell and shrink quite a lot. I have just purchased another 2 for my friends as presents."
Esther Leow via Amazon January 2013
"This is the best thing ever invented! Typing this while pumping right now actually! Don't know how I lived the last 4 months without this! Definitely a must have item for mommas to be."
Danielle via Amazon December 2012
"My Toni Top arrived very quickly and just in time for the holidays! Thank you so much for mailing it so quickly! I have told several of my friends about your product and I believe that there will be some orders coming your way! Fabulous product and I am finally comfortable nursing in public because of the Toni Top."
Cyndi Richter via email December 2012
"This is my fourth order -- it makes a great gift! I pumped exclusively for my daughter for 20 months, and the PumpEase I originally got for myself never let me down."
Rhys Cheung via email December 2012
"I could KISS you! The design of this support system is SO simple and yet SO very important! It has totally changed the way I think about pumping. Before I believed pumping to limit me and the amount of work I could accomplish. Now, I am able to continue working (I am a software developer) PLUS I express A LOT more milk as I am not constantly worried about the position of the pumping cup!
Thank you, thank you PumpEase for 'easing' my life and making it SO much more enjoyable to pump milk for my baby."
Elizabeth Green via email December 2012
"I thought these products were silly, but now that I've gotten one it's AMAZING!! The seller is awesome and offers lots of good products."
Ashley Bruman via Amazon December 2012
"I just got mine in the mail today and this is my new favorite product. I've been struggling with pumping this time because my baby was a preemie. I guess I wasn't getting good suction trying to hold the pump and multitask at work. Today after weeks of just breaking even, I pumped more than what I needed. Thank you!"
Genevieve Sawyer Baumann via Facebook December 2012
"I got my PumpEase bra this week (yay zulilly!) and have used it for the first time. Thank you so much for such an awesome product! I find I am more successful at pumping when I can distract myself and just relax, which is much easier to do when you have your hands free!"
Jen Sincevich via Facebook December 2012
"Hi! I am an RN and mother of two EBF kids. The first time around I didn't have a PumpEase. I was like, 'I don't need to spend any more money on something that my hands can do'. With the second child, one of my peers talked me into buying one from our mother's boutique at the hospital where I work. I am able to get so much more done (and even enjoy a bit of fun on the computer) while I pump. I am even pumping right now! Thanks again for such an awesome product!"
Amanda Sterling via email November 2012
"@PumpEase Thanks for your product! You made pumping breastmilk for my twins much more manageable! Couldn't have made it a year without you!"
"Got the package and have tried PumpEase a couple times now and so far it's pretty sweet! Overall I am very pleased. :)"
Vairdy Andrew via email November 2012
"Ok... got my PumpEase bras... 3... before baby was born, so this round I have used my PumpEase the whole time, baby is 5 months. Today I forgot to throw it in my bag and oh my, am I missing it. I am so spoiled to being hands-free. I love my PumpEase."
Alexis Taylor via Facebook November 2012
"Got my PumpEase at the end of last week, started using it this week at work and I LOVE it! Great product, very comfortable, and recommending it to all the mamas I can!"

"Lightning fast, and I love love love the product!"
Anita Buist via Amazon October 2012
I LOVE my PumpEase! I teach high school, and it has made it possible to pump without hassle at work. When I first started pumping, it was so difficult and boring! I was holding the shields to pump, and staring out the windows. When my PumpEase arrived, it all changed. I am certain that this bra had helped me to continue to breast feed and to keep my milk up now that I am back at work. I LOVE this product! I recommend it to EVERYONE who is expecting. (This is my 2nd purchase - it is a gift for a friend. I bought it for her because mine is so awesome!)
Tia W Denver, CO October 2012
"My PumpEase came today! Thank you! Very fast shipping!"
Diana Irene Verheyen via Facebook October 2012
"This product is a gift from heaven!! When you pump your milk 3-4 hours a day, everyday, it gets boring pretty fast when you can't do anything else. With this bra, my hands are free! The product arrived as described and the shipping was fast, I would buy again from Snugabell Mom and Baby Gear."
Melissa Perrault via Amazon September 2012
"I'm wearing my Toni Top and pencil skirt for the first time today... and I feel pretty! For the first time in weeks, I feel like the clothes I'm in make me look and feel attractive. THANK YOU!"
Nikki Kelley via Facebook September 2012
"I would like to say thank you for such a great product and super fast delivery! I was so excited to use the product after getting my pump parts ready I literally forgot to put the bottle on my pump shield and got milk all over me LOL. A+ for such a cute bra :)"
Kimberly Slater-Price via Facebook September 2012
Love the Toni Top - Stylish Top that I can wear out or to work, without worrying about pumping/feeding needs!

PumpEase saved the day!
Christianne S. Edmonton, AB September 2012
THANK GAWD for PumpEase....can I tell you how I can finally scratch my nose when pumping! Or tuck my hair??? Makes it seem like I can pump all day! Thanks so much for making it so fun looking too!
Lucia Clark September 2012
"I saw another mom in the NICU pumping room using PumpEase and asked her where I could get one; I searched the product and found you. This product is the most amazing invention ever! For the numerous moms who have babies in the NICU and are pumping non-stop it is a lifesaver! My elbows, neck, and hands thank you!"
Fiona via email September 2012
"I used PumpEase as soon as it was delivered and this has to be the best darn purchase I have made so far. When comparing my PumpEase Bra to the the hands-free "kit" that comes with the Freestyle pump, this just puts that ridiculous contraption to SHAME. Flawless design and craftsmanship... way to go!!! I will recommend you to all of my pumping friends...."
Sam D. via email September 2012
"Pumping Mamas, @PumpEase is a lifesaver! #NotAnAd"
"I was given the PumpEase hands-free pumping bra. Initially, I was a little skeptical but it is a great product. I don't have to worry about having to stop pumping if the phone rings or my baby cries. It has been really handy!!"
Erin Earle via Facebook August 2012
"I used @PumpEase 3 times in the NICU today. It's a Godsend; definitely recommending to friends."
"I received my PumpEase a couple days ago. I love it! I love it so much I took advantage of your sale ones (slight visual imperfections) and bought two more. I am able to double pump and not feel like I am going to have to juggle. Love love love it!"
Alexis Taylor via Facebook July 2012
"Hi there. I was shopping at Jack & Lola in North Vancouver, and came across your product. Purchased right away & put it to the test. Just wanted to thank you for such a comfortable & perfect product. I'm definitely a multi-tasker, especially owning my own business & with my first new born, so this was exceptionally perfect! Just wanted to pass along the thanks for an amazing product. Cheers!"

Jennifer via Amazon June 2012
"Great product, wish they came in packs of 2! This is more stylish than other similar products and works great. No more holding the pump parts and no more leaking from the cups."
Melissa via Amazon June 2012

Amy Phillips via Facebook April 2012
"It's been a few weeks since I received my package in the mail & I wanted to write and tell you how much I'm enjoying everything! The PumpEase is just as fabulous as everyone promised me it would be - definitely going on my list of must-have supplies for new moms & I will recommend it to everyone I know. Same goes for the Bamboobies - they're better than the other bamboo pads I have, simply because they're thinner and much less visible under tight-fitting tops (and isn't every top tight-fitting when you're nursing?)"
Lauren Bacon via email April 2012
"Can't imagine how I pumped at work with baby no. 1 without @PumpEase!"
"Pumping bra arrived before scheduled delivery date and it is a great product! Fits nice and tight and am finally able to pump hands-free! Bra is a nice comfortable fabric and appears to be sewn well. Thank you for the fast service & great (and super cute) product!!!"
"I love it! If you are teetering on sizes go with the smaller of the two. This is making my pumping life so much easier. My friend came over and was all "What is that?" I explained and her reply was "You are so spoiled!" With that said SPOIL YOURSELF!!!!! It's worth it!"
Michelle Bermudez via Amazon March 2012
"I purchased my PumpEase today and I am SO HAPPY to have found this product!!! It has made my life so much easier and my wrists so much happier that they don't have to constantly hold my pump bottles each session. I will be telling every Mama I know about your product and blogging about it soon - http://littlewifeontheprairie.wordpress.com

"I absolutely love the PumpEase hands-free bra! I am fulltime working mom to two boys and it has made life much simpler at the office! I'm even using it at home when I'm pumping on the weekends."
Kimberly via Amazon February 2012
"Wow! That's way better... I didn't leak milk all over myself and I pumped a lot longer because my hands were free to do other things. Thank you so much!"
"Used my PumpEase for the first time today. How did I ever live without it??? :)"
Jocelyn Chick via Facebook January 2012
"I just wanted to say I love your bras!! I even gave you guys a shout out in my blog:
It was so great to find a company that really understands pumping mammas!!"
Angela Gonzalez via website January 2012
"I have Medela Pump 'n Style pump. Initially I was hoping I could use this pump with only one hand but even changing settings on the pump proved to be a challenge with one hand, since both are needed to hold the cups over the breasts. This bra changed all of that. I am now able to easily adjust pump settings, eat breakfast, switch tv channels and answer emails on my smart phone. This is just the 15 minutes I would not have otherwise. Great product and absolutely worth the money."
Midoriko via Amazon January 2012
"Just have to say I absolutely LOVE mine! When I first heard about them from a friend I thought it sounded like something I just wouldn't need. (Even though the same friend told me how it allowed her to pump an extra session nightly on the way home from work!) And then DD 2 came around and I was pumping after my morning nursing sessions and sitting there with cramped hands again from holding the bottles and it all came back to me how much I hated pumping with DD 1. So I got one on a zulily sale towards the end of my maternity leave and I can't believe I ever thought I wouldn't need it!
Then I went back to work. And got a smart phone and having a PumpEase while pumping at the office was fantastic because I could pass the time checking emails, or twittering my facebook. ;)
And then I was laid off a few weeks ago and have been trying to get my freelancing business off the ground so now, it's more invaluable than ever since I don't have to stop work. I just have my pump hooked up next to my desk and I set everything up and go back to work. I can even pump longer than I did at the office where I had to watch the clock.
It works perfectly with the Ameda Purely Yours system and the Tuxedo style is so classy.
I just can't say enough good things about my PumpEase! :D Thank you so much!"
Karen L. via email January 2012

"Dear Wendy and Snugabell Mom & Baby Gear, my Galaxie Black PumpEase arrived in Jakarta safe and sound. I would like to thank you very much for accepting international orders direct from your website. Now I feel much more comfortable and it holds up the bottles very well. Yay! No more struggling with the hands-free straps that came with my Medela Freestyle."

"Thank you so much for making a fantastic hands-free pumping bra."
Tara Kaufman via website January 2012
"Sizing was right on for me, I tried it with a 4 ounce glass bottle and filled it to the top and did not have an issue with the weight of it. Its a really soft fabric. I read all reviews on other hands-free pumping bras and was really glad I went with this one."
Em via Amazon January 2012
"The PumpEase is a must-have. Before I used this, it was impossible to double pump; every time I tried, one of the flanges/bottles would move or fall. And forget about doing anything else while you pump - Without the PumpEase, all your concentration is on keeping the flanges in place. This bra is also really helpful in creating and maintaining the necessary suction from the beginning. I love that I can just strap this on over an open nursing shirt or nursing bra and don't have to take off what I'm already wearing."
Jojo C via Amazon January 2012
"I'm using my @PumpEase for the 1st time! It's so liberating."
"I don't think I already wrote to you guys, but I just wanted to say a big thank you, in light of Prematurity Awareness Month.
My son was born 10 weeks early when he arrived on April 26th of this year. I was hurled into a scary and foreign experience, which included pumping 10 times a day while he spent some time in hospital growing and getting stronger.
I was so clueless about it all, having not had time to properly research and read about breastfeeding - let alone birth - and so everything was a big hurdle.
Pumping was hard and discouraging at the start, but I was determined, knowing that it was the only thing in my power that I could do to help my son. So with cracked and throbbing nipples, I soldiered on.
One day, one of the other NICU moms was sitting in our pump room at the hospital casually reading a magazine and checking her email while she pumped. She was using a PumpEase - the one with the badass cherries on it. It was like a shaft of light shone down on her from the fluorescent bulbs above.
"What is THAT?!" I demanded, "and where can I get one?!"
I soon ordered my own online and I love it. It didn't change my life but it really made what was a very difficult time, just a little bit easier as in the 3+ hours I was spending pumping every day, I could keep in touch with my family, letting them know about my son's progress, I could read, have a glass of water... and I am so grateful. It was also nice to hear that it was made in Canada. Hooray!
I love functional, yet beautiful design. I really think you should let all the lactation consultants in Canadian hospitals know about them, PumpEase is awesome and certainly makes something difficult and trying a lot less frustrating."
Whitney Ross-Barris Solo Jazz Artist, Professional Actor November 2011
"I'm loving the Toni Top - so soft and fantastic for public breastfeeding (I like that I can cover right down to the nipple with the material.) It makes me feel "dressed up" too - a rare thing these days!"
Sally White via email November 2011
"The @HygeiaBaby pump plus my @PumpEase make pumping almost pleasant! I may have to blog about them. #breastfeeding"
"I love my PumpEase very much!! I use it with my Avent double pump and it works wonders! Pumping is no longer a stress for me.. before this I always wished it was over but not anymore..... I enjoy my pumping session now and don't mind to do extra minutes as I can check my emails, reading magz, I'm even teaching my almost 23 months old girl ABC and sing along with her! :)"
Aida Anuwi via Facebook | Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia November 2011
"HOW did I ever pump without a @PumpEase?? It's super comfortable, so easy, & even fun. Everyone who pumps should have one :)"
"I wanted to say that I LOVE the PumpEase. I used it the whole time I breastfed my son and I don't think that I could have ever pumped as long as I did without it."
Ashley Thompson via email October 2011
"I had been using a sports bra with holes cut out for my first 2 months of exclusively pumping. I am going back to work, however and will have to pump to and from work and using the ratty old bra was not an option! I fell in love with all the patterns to choose from and the loop and hook fasteners rather than the normal light pink and Velcro which could damage my clothes. I am extremely excited and happy about my red polka dot PumpEase!"
Andrea J. via Customer Feedback Survey October 2011
"Loved having a T-bird Red @PumpEase when I was nursing and working - highly recommended! Definitely added a touch of glamour during a most humbling act of love!"
"Just ordered my second PumpEase! My last one was "Verry Cherry" - fun, witty and a little feisty. Now I'm going for sophisticated, sleek, and professional with "Tuxedo". I'm so pumped! ;) (pun intended)."
Sarah Baker via email October 2011
"During Hurricane Irene, I lost over 50 bags of expressed milk due to power outages - it was very hard to pour that milk out, but I had no where to send it. That really sparked me to look into donating further. You are a wealth of information. I was looking for info about donating milk and went to one particular site and they did not have visible info. When I received an email from you I looked on the resouces page of your site and noted the contact information for Mothers' Milk Bank. I was able to get screened and approved as a donor and made my first donation this week. I am excited that I was able to contribute to the lives of others. THANK YOU for all that you do to make our lives and others BETTER!"
LaKeisha Stevenson; JLS Ministries and Music YMERG & Management via email October 2011
"Love my new PumpEase pumping bra - thanks @LifeWithLevi for the coupon!! Now I can knit a blanket and pump at the same time."
"I just bought my second PumpEase bra - it is a lifesaver, and a great product! Thank you so much. The fact that my bras are cute (I have the BelAir Blue and the Verry Cherry) really adds a boost to the chore of being stuck to the breast pump all day and night."

"I love PumpEase so much, I also gave one to my milk donor. :) I had to laugh at our donor the other day. She said it was the most amazing thing to be able to pump on one side for me and nurse her baby with BOTH hands on the other. Love her!"
Amy Robinson-Church via Facebook August 2011
"I have been breastfeeding/pumping for my triplets for 8 months now! Everyone, including my physician, told me it wouldn't be possible. Breastfeeding multiples IS possible, and PumpEase makes it soooo much easier too. :) "

"@PumpEase your product has helped me SO much during my breastfeeding journey."
"I have a PumpEase and got it while Ella was in the NICU. It. Was. GREAT!!! I pumped so much more and I was SO much more relaxed with it! I loved my PumpEase! I'm sharing this because it's honest to God one of the best products EVER."
Christa - Breastmilk for Preemies and The Good Letdown via Facebook July 2011
"I actually had a client who was getting sore wrists from holding the pump! This hands-free option was a miracle for her. On the other hand, some mommies use it so they can check email or such while pumping. I gently encourage new mommies to chill and enjoy the pumping mindfully, listen to music, relax etc. Email can wait! That being said, I love anything HANDS FREE so there you go."
Millie Tresierra, Motherwit Doula, Montreal QC via Facebook July 2011
"My sister let me borrow hers for a gift and it made the world of difference while my baby was in the NICU. It made such a difference that I was able to pump for a sick baby for 8 months straight. The PumpEase made all the difference in our lives."

"My @PumpEase handsfree pumping support arrived in the mail today from @snugabell - it works!"
"Hi Wendy!! I just wanted to say thanks so much for my PumpEase! I purchased it last summer after the birth of my daughter. It's been almost a year and I am still pumping strong. I'm able to use my PumpEase while at work. Being hands-free has been the best thing ever - I can get so much done. I told my friend Jen about it and she then bought one from you too."

"I have to admit, this @PumpEase is pretty great! Except now I have no excuses for not working during my pumping break. :)"
"As someone who pumped for nearly two years, I can say that PumpEase are the best! They are a life (and hands/wrists) saver. I used another brand, and went through two of them. Then I got a PumpEase and it rocked my world. It was pretty, held up to multiple daily uses, and made the task SO much easier. Easy to wash, easy to use, and adjustable. In fact, I handed mine down to a friend who was pumping for her NICU baby, and it held up another year through her pumping. Worth the full price, and a bargain at the discount!"
Jessica Huntley via Facebook May 2011
"Got my @PumpEase in the mail today. HOW DID I LIVE THREE WEEKS WITHOUT THIS THING? Seriously. I thought it would help a little, but the thing is darn near magical. I just painted my nails, drank a gallon of water and tweeted WHILE PUMPING, dude, @PumpEase, fist bump. (Because I can!)"

"I heard about your product on The Leaky B@@b. I got my Verry Cherry PumpEase in the mail yesterday and tried it last night... LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!! It's so comfy and doesn't ride up or down. I didn't know what to do with my hands for 20 minutes!! Oh, and it was SO NICE to read "Made in Canada" instead of "Made in China!!" I'll definitely be recommending this to friends!"

"I'm an American living in France and although the social security system here rents electric pumps for free, they don't think about the fact that it's impossible to use both pumps at the same time without a product like PumpEase. I ordered one and not only can I use both pumps, I can keep in touch with my family on the net. My cousin just had a little boy who was born with a hole in his lungs & caught pneumonia. Since he's going to be in the hospital for a month, she's pumping, so I'm sending this to her to help her get through this rough start.
Thank you so very much for your personal email and for a product that has changed my life and I hope that of my cousin Leah."
Rebecca Michel via email May 2011
"I love Love LOVE my PumpEase -- I use it 2-3 times each weekday and it makes a world of difference to my work productivity. Thanks for letting me get home to my baby boy that much sooner!"
Andrea Wan via email May 2011
"I use my PumpEase (Verry Cherry) every day – I never ever use the other nursing bustier thingie I have. PumpEase holds the flanges/bottles securely while I keep working away.
Thanks for making such a fabulous, well-made product!! I’ve raved about it to many friends and recommend it to all my nursing pumping mama friends."
Dagmar Ebaugh via website May 2011
"PumpEase is the best! I pump every morning and wouldn't without the hands-free support. What a relief! Verry Cherry's how I roll!"
"Funny story - My housekeeper hand-washed my PumpEase the other day. It was hanging wet and cold, but I wore it anyway because I could not bear the thought of pumping without it. Crazy!"
Amanda Cole, Nursing Mom and Owner of Yummy Mummy on the Upper East Side New York, NY, USA April 2011
"I have had a PumpEase almost since I started pumping... So I'd guess about 9 months now. I've actually got three. This way if one is dirty, I'm never without. :) I pump 3-4 times a day EVERY day, and I don't know what I would do without it - probably lose what little sanity I have left. <GRIN> It's comfortable, VERY easy to use, easy to massage breasts while it's on, and as I can attest works just *FINE* for those of us who are "well endowed" - fantastic product. Plus the colors/patterns just help 'brighten' the day while pumping. Thanks!!!"
Jaimie Leader Goodale via email March 2011
"I have another pumping bra and I like it, but then I got the PumpEase and I like it better. It is a stretchy band that hooks. It is easier to do breast compressions with the PumpEase since it is thinner.
I undo my bra or tank top flaps and put it over everything I am wearing. In cold weather and lots of layers I will sometimes put it under my shirt. PumpEase hands-free bras are great! I am using mine right now to check email and type this. : ) "

"I just got my PumpEase hands-free pumping support. I love it! I have it packed in the hospital bag. Thank you for wonderful service and fast delivery!"

"I loved my first one so much, I've decided I'd splurge on another so I don't have to risk leaving it at home when I mean to bring it with me. THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS WONDERFUL PRODUCT. It is what is keeping me pumping!!"
Jolene Black via email March 2011
"This is a product I had wished existed because I didn't like standard pumping bras. When I learned about PumpEase, I was delighted! Using my new PumpEase was a dream come true -- the first time out of the box, I popped it on, then looked at pictures with my 2-month-old in my lap while pumping, then pulled off one side because he wanted a snack, nursed him through the opening while continuing to pump the other side, then let him sleep in my lap while I popped the pump back onto that side and read a book! WOW!!!! I love your product so much that I posted to my La Leche Yahoo group to let the other mommies know what a great thing was out there!"
Andrea Wan via email March 2011
"Why I chose PumpEase...
I'm a new mom of a five month old. Breastfeeding has been a challenge from the beginning. Trying every possibility to EBF – seeking out lactation consultants, herbal remedies and the dreaded pumping marathons. To say I hated pumping was an understatement. I never got more than 2 ounces combined. Then I had to go back to work full time and it was even worse. Why continue to pump at work? Just sitting there, holding the pump and getting hardly anything. I was overly frustrated and tired of not being able to focus on anything but my pumping session. I was ready to give up pumping and to just continue breastfeeding when I'm with my li'l man and go as long as I can. Then through following the Leaky Boob on twitter I met Lara from Mama Pear Designs. I poured out all my feelings. Lara suggested that I check out PumpEase.com to get a hands-free pumping bra. I was ready to try anything at this point and boy am I glad I did! This has been my first week of pumping at work with my hands-free bra. IT’S AMAZING! I now can forget about the pump and focus my mind on other things. I keep forgetting I am pumping and catch myself going over 20 minutes each session. It is the best feeling in the world. I’m hoping that in the next week or so I also see an improvement on my supply. I wish I would have known about this before I even began my pumping sessions. Thank you so much for your amazing products and your amazing support."
Stephanie Wilson via email March 2011
I just wanted to say thank you for creating a product I can confidently recommend to breastfeeding moms who work and pump for their babies.
Recently on Twitter, I had the chance to connect with Stephanie, a working mama, with an infant son. She reached out to me, distraught about not being able to pump enough milk while she was at work. Despite having a comfortable area for her to pump at work, she had come to dread the process because she was not having successful pumping sessions, and she was fearful that she was not going to continue to breastfeed her baby due to her perceived low milk supply.
After communicating with her about her issues and offering various suggestions for pumping, I also recommended she purchase a hands-free pumping bra, and directed her to your site. She took me up on my suggestion, and with a new outlook, renewed confidence and a PumpEase she is now pumping more than she ever thought she would! Stephanie did a lot of the work - she had to change her mindset - but your product made it possible for her to attach the pump, and forget about it until the end of her pumping session. Letting go of looking at the bottles while pumping seemed to make all the difference in the world!
As a mother who is passionate about breastfeeding education and works to support other mothers so they can meet their breastfeeding goals, I am so glad that I can recommend your product without hesitation to those who pump on a regular basis. You made a difference in a mother’s relationship with her son and that is something about which you should be very proud!"
Lara Audelo, Certified Lactation Education Counselor (CLEC) Founder, Mama Pear Designs February 2011
"I also have the PumpEase. I just love it. I recommend it to any pumping mom as a MUST have for pumping. It also makes a difference in the amount of milk you get because of holding it on longer and not breaking the seal. I went from getting an oz or so to about 4 oz when I was pumping. I have a mommy friend that loves hers also and went from getting 4 oz with out it to 6 oz with the PumpEase. They also have great customer service. This is always important in my eyes. :)"
Amy via Motherwear's Breastfeeding Blog February 2011
"I had always intended to nurse my daughter but when she was born, a combination of her preference and my flat nipples changed that plan. I worked with lactation consultants and tried all sorts of contraptions to try to make nursing work but each feeding was difficult and emotional for me, my daughter, and my husband. I had already started pumping but was devastated that I wouldn't be nursing. After reading online a bit I realized that there were lots of women just like me who pumped exclusively and I thought, "I can do this!" I grieved the loss of nursing and embraced the life of pumping. Pumping exclusively without a hands free device is exhausting! I was experiencing back pain, hand pain, neck pain, and just felt like pumping had taken over my life because I could do nothing else while I was pumping. I researched many options and tried some but nothing worked for me. I joined the PumpEase Facebook page and stalked it for months in hopes of winning a PumpEase from a giveaway, afraid to spend the money on something else that might not work. After 6 months of pumping, I WON one!! My PumpEase has become my best friend! Seriously, my life is completely changed and had I known what a difference this little piece of fabric would make I would have spent the money on it the day I decided to exclusively pump! It's worth every penny and I can't believe I went 6 months without it. I would never let a friend pump without one. Thank you PumpEase for your generosity and for changing my life forever!"
Lori Allinder via email February 2011
"I love my PumpEase pumping bra. I've been using it three to five times a day, five days a week for almost five months and can not begin to tell you what a difference it has made! I can actually pump at my desk and accomplish so much work with this product - I don't think I would still be pumping without it! Thank you for helping me give my son the best nutritional start possible. I know we will meet our breastfeeding goals largely thanks to your product. Thank you doesn't even begin to explain the depth of my gratitude."
Jenna Taylor via Amazon February 2011
"I really like my PumpEase – it fits more comfortably than another nursing bustier I own, and the design and comfort are wonderful. Makes pumping more fun :-)"
Dagmar Ebaugh via email February 2011
"I don't know how I went 3 months without my PumpEase, but when I finally thought "Hey, I should try that" my pumping life changed dramatically. Trying to turn the page of a book while propping your bottles on your knees is the pits. Pumping became such a non-issue for me that I pumped until my LO turned 17 months. I hung up the horns just last week."
Krista VanWyck Babbitt via Facebook January 2011
"I bought a PumpEase Organic and now pump hands-free while working on the computer with one of your door signs on my office door asking for privacy. The latter is as much fun as the bra in my almost only male work environment. It also makes a good point - my son is 10 months only and some people already question why I still nurse him (and pump). What will they say if my son is two and still nurses? ;-) Anyway, thanks for both the sign and the bra. I love them!"
Maren via email January 2011
"I am writing to thank you for such a superior pumping product. I was referred to you by a fellow mom from my breastfeeding support group. She raved about your pumping bras, so I ordered two in preparation for returning to work. I am a veteran pumper. I pumped for my first born until he was about 19 months old when I was away from him at work. I knew what I was up against. Pumping is definitely not the easiest task when you have limited time at work to take pumping breaks. I knew I needed a product that went on quickly and got the job done, so I could work while I pump and eat lunch while I pump during my lunch break. With my first I had to "rig" my pumping bra each time I put it on with safety pins and had to roll my shirt under the fabric of the bra to get it snug enough around me to pump. I have used my PumpEase numerous times now and have NEVER had to make any alterations to the bra to get it comfortable or snug. It is perfect. I pump 4x a day either in the car or on the way to work or at work. The PumpEase goes on quickly and is very comfortable. Thank you for creating a wonderful product!"

"Thank you so much for creating the hands-free PumpEase. It works great!"
CeCelia Breivik (mother of twin boys) via email December 2010
"I just wanted to once again thank you for your product. Fourteen months ago I gave birth to a preemie and was introduced to the world of pumping for my baby every 3 hours in order for him to be tube fed in the intensive care unit at BC Children's Hospital. As a Fit 4 Two Ambassador Sponsor, you gave me a PumpEase bra... it changed my life! Finally I could use my hands!!! Since then I have been recommending your product to all my friends and family. Last week I again gave birth to another premature baby and am living the life of pumping every 3 hours!! I have a PumpEase at the hospital and one at home. As I meet new moms in the NICU pumping room I am constantly raving about your bra and they all ask, "Where can I get one of those?" I get to read a magazine and pump while they are uncomfortably clasping onto both the pump horns! The lactation consultant at BC Woman's was intrigued having never seen a PumpEase so I also gave her your product info. The NICU staff suggested that you should send them some information to post in the pumping room. I can guarantee these moms would buy one! I am so happy with your product (and couldn't believe your pitch wasn't picked up by the Dragons)! I am pumping as I type this email! Thanks for simplifying my busy life as a mom!"
Erica Schmidt via email December 2010
"My baby was born six weeks pre-mature so I was pumping around the clock. I wish I found PumpEase sooner!! I didn't get this wonderful product until after he was out of the NICU but it still has come in handy. I can now do so many more things while pumping. I can work on the computer and tend to my baby all while pumping."
Amber Croff via email December 2010
"I LOVE my PumpEase! Although I normally use it for hands-free pumping, it's also a great fashion piece. I just turn it around and voila! Suddenly I can use my super cute Forget Me Not print as a camisole if I'm wearing a shirt that's cut just a little too low for work. I love the versatility and the quality of the fabric - I've worn my PumpEase at work, while out shopping, and even while out walking the dogs."
Jen Jamar via email December 2010
"I saw PumpEase on Dragon’s Den and thought it was such a brilliant idea!
It works even better than I had hoped. I am a master’s student so it’s great to be able to pump and study at the same time. I can easily store up milk for when I am in class while looking after my baby or doing research.
Thanks for this awesome (and fun!) product!"
Amelia via email December 2010
"I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to whoever invented the hands-free PumpEase. It has allowed me to pump while tending to a crying baby and able to eat without starving after feeding my baby in the morning. It would be great for any working mom. I LOVE IT! I'm sooo glad I saw it on Dragons Den, even if the Dragons didn't support it (they are all mostly men who have never had to find time to nurse and do errands). At least it got your product out there. I will be recommending it to every new mom I know and will get more in the future if I have more babies."
Nicole Thomas via email November 2010
"I got [my PumpEase] in the mail on Friday. I could not wait to use it!
I just used it and LOVE it! The PumpEase hands-free bra is fantastic: so soft and stretchy at the same time! I found out about it at The Leaky Boob. I have the red retro one [T-Bird Red from the Fabulous Fifties Collection].
I just pumped 15 ounces! Yes, I do pump a lot more on Mondays than other days of the week. But it was so nice to sit there relaxed, with my hands to be able to massage while pumping! I may have to get another one as backup.
Was so nice not to have to hold the shields in place. And I didn't leak like I sometimes do when I don't quite have it on right."
Morrigan via Morrigan's Magnificent Life November 2010
"I love the pumping bra and got a second one for myself to leave at work, and some for friends."
Liz Carter via email November 2010
"I am so glad I found your product. I am one of many moms whose baby was born premature and is in hospital for months and so I can only pump milk instead of breastfeeding. Having hands-free ability is so convenient and makes pumping more comfortable. Thank you!"
Janice Taylor via website November 2010
"Thank you so much for spending so much time on the phone with me, discussing the sizing of the PumpEase - what excellent customer service! I am using the PumpEase every night and it's great! I am able to fold my twins' laundry, watch TV, and have a late night snack - all while pumping! I am thoroughly enjoying being able to pump hands free."
Patricia L. via email October 2010
"I love the PumpEase bra I bought from you a couple of weeks back! I'm buying one more for myself and another for my cousin who's due in December. Thanks for making this great product for us pumping moms!"
Kat Chen Singapore, Singapore October 2010
"Your product helped me keep pumping for 4 months while my preemie son learned to latch on. Thanks!"
Susan R. via email October 2010
"Ever since these came out I have been wishing I had one instead of my easy expressions hand free bra. I figured since the cat peed all over my easy expressions one I was going to buy a pumpease one! (yeah I know I could have just washed it a couple times and likely got the pee smell all out, but I really needed it immediately and darn it, my cat peed all over my pump and I'm having a bad day so it felt better to get something out of it!).
And I LOVE it! It's much nicer than the easy expression. The holes for the pump flanges are slits instead of circles adn that holds my pump parts in place much much better. And it's just a nicer material and seems better quality. I also like that it has 3 rows of hook adn eye (instead of a zipper) so you can adjust the size - that would have been super helfpul back when I was engorged or even just the first 6 months vs now!
FYI at Special Addition they are $40 and Easy Expressions are $38, so it's not much more."
Michelle & Russ via Baby Bump Magazine August 2010
I picked up my PumpEase last Saturday and I wanted to let you know that your product is great! First of all, I cannot believe I'm finally pumping hands-free after 8 months of pumping! :-) It is SO much better than what I was expecting! I will be recommending your product to the breastfeeding moms that I know."
Patty Garcés Reynosa, Mexico August 2010
"My PumpEase was the BEST nursing accessory that I bought! It made it easy to pump when I was at home. It also was the only way I was able to pump at work. It enabled me to pump and get some work done at the same time. I just bought a 2nd PumpEase so I have a back-up one for this time nursing!"
Becca M Rochester NY, USA August 2010
"This product has literally changed how I pump. I can't believe how much I can multi-task using PumpEase. The time it takes for me to pump has been cut in half! I am much for comfortable pumping now. Thank you for making such a wonderful product. I would never want to pump without it!"
Bethany Bobb Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA August 2010
"After 6 weeks of trying to breastfeed, I made the decision to pump exclusively. I have large breasts and my wrists were very sore from holding the horns, not to mention that it was impossible to do anything else while double pumping. Using a PumpEase has made such a difference! I am now into month #8 of pumping and I am sure that without my PumpEase, I would have stopped pumping a long time ago. It is helping my son get breastmilk which is very important to me."
Kate St. Louis Hamilton, Ontario August 2010
"I seriously LOVE my PumpEase - I can actually work while pumping and I can pump longer because I am distracted! :)"
Clarissa Nassar AKA The Posh Parent Johnstown, NY, USA July 2010
"The PumpEase buys me a good 15 minutes on the computer or on the phone by not having to hold the breast pump shields to my chest. I love the material that the PumpEase is made out of.
Admittedly, upon first glance of the "Breast-fest at Tiffany's" image on the home page of the web site, I turned the other cheek. My initial reaction was to ignore the ridiculous looking contraption. "No f**king way", I thought. It looked more like an S&M device. After just a few days of holding the horns to my chest and staring at the walls, I was sold."
blog post by Lori aka Big Ole Pregnant Lady - "My Pregnancy Journey" Cyberspace, USA June 2010
"I am a busy Mom of two little boys (2 years old and 4 months old). Chasing a toddler and trying to pump at the same time is challenging, but PumpEase makes it completely possible - even if it's to pump and catch up on dishes while the boys are napping. I would recommend this product to any mom!"
Erica Ward Fredericton, NB, Canada June 2010
"I had a really hard time breastfeeding when my daughter was born and so I started using my double electric pump instead for the first few weeks until everything returned to normal. After continuing to struggle with the breastfeeding, we decided to exclusively pump and feed our daughter pumped breast milk. I really hated pumping as it seemed to take forever - just sitting there, holding the bottles. And if you moved even slightly, breast milk would leak out everywhere. Plus when I am home alone during the day and have to pump while my daughter is awake, she would sometimes fuss and there was nothing I could do about it but just wait until I was done pumping.
I decided to give the PumpEase a try. I hadn't heard of any of my friends using it... so I felt l was taking a bit of a gamble on the product. Plus ordering it online I wasn't sure if the sizing would be right and if it would actually work. After using it for almost a month now, all I can say is I LOVE IT!!! I honestly don't even know how I managed NOT using it! I can do so much more now and the time spent pumping flashes by so quickly. I check my emails, I've folded laundry, I'm even able to feed my daughter from the bottle while pumping. It's so easy to use and has honestly made pumping so much better!!! Even the few times I've had to pump manually while I was on the go, it made double pumping possible and helped it go by quickly! No leaks and it stays perfectly suctioned onto the breast.
I would recommend the PumpEase to EVERY breast pumping mother! I can't imagine how I went almost a month of pumping without it!
Thanks again for this AMAZING product!!!"
Christine Martin Fergus, ON, Canada May 2010
"Just a quick note to tell you that my clients have been LOVING PumpEase! I've been bringing my samples to meetings and sending them to EvyMama in Toronto to pick up their own! You're amazing for creating this!"
Amanda Spakowski, Owner and Doula, The Nesting Place PreNatal Classes & Doula Care Toronto, ON, Canada May 2010
"My PumpEase came yesterday and I used it today. I LOVE IT!!! I pumped and went through all of my farm town requests on Facebook. I didn't even realize that I was pumping. I am so glad I bought one!!!
I just pulled my shirt up, pulled down the flaps of my nursing bra and fastened the PumpEase around me. It was so easy. I was afraid that it would be complicated but it was easy and quick. I have used it 3 times today and WOW!!! Wished I would have bought one sooner."

"I just got my PumpEase on Saturday and was able to use it on Sunday. I LOVE IT! It's great for when I'm at work and could be studying while taking my pumping break! Thanks for creating such an awesome (and cute!) pumping accessory!"
Joanne Marie via the "I Heart My PumpEase" Facebook Group May 2010
"As a working mom who was dedicated to continue breastfeeding my daughter while we were apart I was getting very frustrated with the amount of time I would waste each day having to sit and pump. My time is valuable and I need every minute I can get. I was introduced to PumpEase by a co-worker and now I can't imagine pumping without it! It is very comfortable and having my hands free to continue working has been wonderful! I don't like to pump so anything I can do to make the process easier is a huge plus! I highly recommend this for everyone, as being able to multitask is part of the job description for every Mommy. Thank you, Wendy!"
Jackie Goodhead via our Customer Feedback Survey May 2010
This arrived in the mail the other day. I've really enjoyed using it for the past few days and now feel much more comfortable pumping both sides at the same time. Thanks again!

Leika Garcia Paraiso de Mayaguez, PR, USA April 2010
"The PumpEase is easy to use, very comfortable and it's exactly what you need to pump hands-free. It fits perfectly based on the size chart. Plus it's super cute!"
Julie Durham, NC, USA April 2010
"I received my PumpEase today and have to admit that it lives up to the hype. I was able to express both breasts in well under 15 minutes - usually it takes around 45 minutes - which is really important for someone who exclusively expresses and will be going back to full-time work shortly. The fabric is very comfortable. As a larger woman it is amazing to get something in my size that actually works properly - if anything I would tell people sitting on the cusp of 2 sizes to go for the smaller one - the sizing is on the generous rather than skimpy side."
Marg B. Hurstbridge, Vic, Australia April 2010
"I use my PumpEase bra on a daily basis and must say it has saved me SO much time! It fits great, holds the bottles in place well and is just an overall fantastic product! I will definitely be recommending it to all my nursing friends. Thank you!!!"
Betsy Garrard Wetumpka, AL, USA April 2010
"Thank you for sending my PumpEase so quickly! It arrived late last week and I had an opportunity to try it out today. It worked wonderfully well. I am only sorry that I didn't know about your product earlier (my son is now almost 5 months) and that it wasn't available when I had my first son five years ago! I had to pump a lot after the birth of my first son until my milk came in. I sure could have used a PumpEase so I could do other things while I pumped two to three times a day! I will definitely recommend it to others, particularly to moms returning to work and those with twins - both of whom need to pump regularly! It would be a cool product to share with doulas and community health nurses as well."
H. Fehr-Makinen Vancouver, BC, Canada March 2010
"I've only had the PumpEase bra for a few hours, but already it has changed my life! Now I can email and multitask while pumping, which will not only make my life easier, but also will enable me to pump more often, thus improving my milk supply. Thank you very much for all of your support, wonderful customer service and for inventing this great item! I'll be spreading the word to my other new mother friends!"
Rémie Christ Long Island City, NY, USA March 2010
"For all you pumping mama's out there, there are a few products I simply cannot live without. One is the PumpEase, which allows me to pump hands-free. I cannot recommend this enough for anyone who pumps a lot!"
blog post by Mandii - "Adventures in Asherland" Food & Milk! March 2010
"I really, really like my PumpEase!! I have been using it for over 8 months now. The reason I like it better than anything else is that I can wear any bra (if I'm not wearing a nursing bra, it's still fine). So many of the others, including the trick of wearing a sports bra with holes cut in it, you actually have to either wear them all the time (making you buy several), or change into them. This one is great!!!"

"I just wanted to tell you that PumpEase is the best thing I've spent money on in a long time. My only suggestion - offer it in cow print. My pumping room at work is generally referred to as the "dairy" and it would just make it that much more dairy-ish."
Callie Baker Leavenworth, WA, USA March 2010
"I used the PumpEase with the Pumpin' Pal super shields for the last 10 months. I highly recommend both for anyone that will be pumping regularly. The PumpEase is pricier than others but you don't have to remove your top. It has held up very well and is really comfortable. Check out the reviews on Amazon.com."

I couldn't stand sitting around for 15 minutes at a time 4-5 times a day and not being able to do anything else. I got it at www.PumpEase.com in case anyone is interested. It's quite comfortable and they have really cute patterns too... not that you're going for style while pumping, but it's still fun!"

My baby boy turned one today. And thanks to you, we've enjoyed one full year of successful breastfeeding! Since I'm a working mom, it would have been way more difficult to continue to breastfeed after I returned to work. With my PumpEase though, I was able to work and pump at the same time!
You've got a great product and I continue to recommend it to all of my friends.
Thanks for developing such a great product! It has truly had a wonderful impact on my life."
Amy Page Atlanta, GA, USA February 2010
"I absolutely love PumpEase. I can multi-task and pump... perfect for a busy mom like myself. And thanks so much for supporting the Ambassador program with Fit 4 Two. It's a great way to promote your product to new moms. We all chat regularly at class and after class in coffee groups about our favourite products. Yours has come up a lot! Everyone loves it. Wishing your business all the best. Erica :)"

Jessica Smith Keller, TX, USA February 2010
"I absolutely LOVE my PumpEase! It has made my pumping experience so much easier and hands free! I personally love the fabric choices, it makes the task of pumping while at work a little bit more fun! If you are thinking about pumping and do not have a hands free pump, then you definitely need a PumpEase, it is worth every single penny!!!! Happy Breastfeeding and Pumping!"
Autum Fish Afton, VA, USA February 2010
"I received the new PumpEase today and it’s great. I wanted to thank you for your excellent, responsive customer service. It was very helpful to me as a new mom of twins who has no time to do anything. I think PumpEase is a great product. Also, I love the polka dotted one you sent. Thanks again."
Natasha F. Kinnelon, NJ, USA February 2010
"Not only do I love being able to have my hands free while pumping, but it is a great load off to not have to sit with my wrists in an awkward position, holding the horns up, for 10+ minutes several times a day. Believe it or not, I got pretty bad tendonitis from the early days of breastfeeding, and then pumping with my wrists in this position just aggravated the condition. I had a great buying experience and found Wendy to be so helpful! She really stands behind her products and helped me find just the right size (including being so understanding about 2 exchanges). Thank you, Snugabell! Keep up the great work!"
Julie L. Calgary, AB, Canada February 2010
"Wow, it really works! I spent hours looking at the options and am glad I chose PumpEase. I work on a busy unit and needed something I could put on easily without undressing and that would hold my 8oz glass bottles as they filled. What a relief it has been to actually be able to eat and drink while I pump for my baby - now it's actually a break!! It even works well when I'm nursing and pumping on just one side; I can pull the PumpEase up on one side and the fabric is still comfortable and holds my pump in place so that my son no longer has to feel that I am distracted on these occassions (no more kicking the bottle or pushing the pump away). Thank you for this simple, beautiful and very functional product!"
Phoebe McCarthy Kansas City, MO, USA January 2010
"Thanks a bunch for all your help and flexibility! Excellent customer service."
J. Leung Calgary, AB, Canada January 2010
"As I am typing this my breast pump is working its magic thanks to my PumpEase. It fits like a glove and keeps the shields tight on my breasts. I usually just keep the PumpEase on all day so when I am ready to pump I just insert the flanges and start pumping. Before I got my double pump I had a single pump and because it was battery operated I could blow dry my hair, do my make-up, make dinner, etc. It gives me the freedom to be mobile while accumulating the "liquid gold" I give to my daughter."
Donna Gibson Coquitlam, BC, Canada January 2010
"At first I was worried that I wouldn't use it because it takes a little time to put on and latch up. But even at work when I'm in a hurry, taking that extra minute or so to put it on is worth it. The hands-free is great, but an added benefit is improved milk output, as well as I can run my pump on a much lower setting!"
Jill Boudreaux Plano, TX, USA December 2009
"I love my new PumpEase because it allows to me to check my e-mail and pump at the same time. The multi-tasking gives me more time to spend with my precious little baby. The product fits perfectly!"
Michelle Fullerton, CA, USA December 2009
"I love my cute PumpEase pumping support! I won mine in a contest on The Feminist Breeder's blog when I was pregnant. I had no idea at the time I'd need to be pumping as early as I was (four days post partum!), so had planned to buy mine after the baby was born. I'm so glad I got it early as it's critical to be hands free while pumping, as far as I'm concerned, to make it a little bit less tedious and more productive." *
* "Right so I got the PumpEase pumping supports for free in a contest. There were no strings attached to my winning the contest, I'm just saying they're awesome all on my own. Oh and they're made in Canada which makes them extra awesome as far as I'm concerned."

"The PumpEase Petite was great! It was compact and very easy to insert the breastshields into. The pretty fabric was an added bonus and Wendy was very helpful all the way!"
Kathy B. Fountain Inn, SC, USA October 2009
"I always knew about hands-free pumping bras, but I never bought one because I stay at home and don't pump very often. I always thought of it as more of a convenience thing only. I have large breasts and always had a hard time keeping the breast shields on and keeping everything centered. Once the doc asked me to start supplementing, I finally gave in and bought a hands-free bra.
Not only is it convenient, but I am pumping tons more milk! Literally I went from less than an ounce to three ounces in much less time. It keeps everything in the perfect position for me.
I bought a PumpEase because they are cute and super comfortable. I hope this helps someone else."

"This is a great product for hands-free pumping. Super comfortable, easy to use, and really well-made."
Karen M. Colorado, USA October 2009
"After returning to work, I needed a product that would make it possible for me to double-pump and still have my hands free to work at the computer. PumpEase has been such a timesaver! The continuous, evenly-distributed pressure also seems to be increasing my pumping output. I couldn't be more pleased with this product!"
Erica Austin, TX, USA October 2009
"I admit that I hate pumping! With my PumpEase band though, I can at least read my favorite blogs, which helps to pass the time and takes my mind off the process."
Jen Nichols Portland, OR, USA September 2009
"As an entrepreneurial mom committed to breastfeeding, I never knew where I would be or what I would be doing when it came time to pump. PumpEase allowed me to work on my computer, make a call or even easily read a book, magazine or document while pumping. Carried with my pump, it remains one of my essential breastfeeding tools."
Beth Schoenfeldt, Co-Founder, Collective-E New York, NY, USA September 2009
"After four weeks back at work, pumping and having to hold both flanges, I discovered PumpEase. Prior to this, it was near torture not being able to do anything else while sitting in my office, trying to occupy myself with pictures or thoughts of my baby just to get through the sessions. As soon as my PumpEase arrived I was able to get pumping in minutes...and I was finally able to multi-task. I could type, read, write, and even answer the phone. Time spent pumping is valuable in and of itself, but we might as well be able to maximize the use of that time. I honestly believe that for pumping moms, PumpEase is the greatest invention possible. Absolutely, without a doubt, my pumping sessions are so much more productive, both work-wise AND milk-wise, because I can focus on other things and relax. It could not be easier!! PumpEase truly makes what I do for my baby when I cannot be with her possible...and enjoyable. Thank you, Wendy, for your excellent product and your gracious help. The customer service could not be beat, either! I am impressed all the way around."
Holly Trillo San Francisco, CA, USA September 2009
"After exclusive pumping for my 9 week old, I was becoming overwhelmed with the process and considering moving my daughter to formula. I needed something to make pumping easier on me, my daughter, and my husband. I looked at several options and decided to start with PumpEase based on reviews on the internet. I have been using the product for 6 weeks now, and I am currently pumping 5-6 times a day using the Medela Lactina. This product has made all of the difference! A quick example... last weekend was my daughter's baptism and a half hour before my family and friends were to arrive at my house, I needed to pump. While pumping, I was able to paint my toenails and apply my makeup - talk about multi-tasking! About the product... I worried about any product being able to support two milk-filled, 6oz bottles. I have no idea what type of stitching, fabric, and clasps PumpEase uses, but this product feels like it could hold two 3 liter bottles! I never worry about it falling, moving, spilling, etc. Speaking of spilling. It took me a couple days to master the art of using the PumpEase, practicing the on and off. At this point, I can use PumpEase half asleep, in the dark and one handed. It takes a couple of uses before you get the hang of it and risk dripping milk on yourself, but once you get it, no worries. Before pregnancy I was a 32A, during pregnancy I was a 34C, and now, I am more like a 34B. Without a doubt the Small size was correct for me, as I typically use PumpEase with the clasp pulled as tight as possible. A big thank you to PumpEase! I would not be breastfeeding today if not for your product! It is worth every penny."
Jennifer Dallas, TX, USA August 2009
"I love how easy I can put my PumpEase on without having to take off my nursing bra and how soft it feels to the skin. It does its job perfectly (I am pumping as I type this review). I love the funky color choices as well."
Irem R. San Leandro, CA, USA August 2009
"It's wonderful to be able to use my hands while pumping! It makes a chore tolerable."
C. Myers La Crosse, WI, USA August 2009
"I love it! I don't like having to pump, but my baby can't breastfeed so it's a must. It was at best awkward to very frustrating having to hold the pumps on all the time. I'm so glad I can use my hands and pump at the same time! What a change! Thanks."
Christa Vancouver, BC, Canada August 2009
"I ordered this (PumpEase) and just got it in today. It's amaaaaaazing! I just used it for my first pumping session and I'm in love. It's so you can pump hands-free! Just thought I'd share my kick ass purchase! Does anyone else own one? I have the Verry Cherry one!"

"I received my PumpEase band today and have used it twice so far, but I just had to write you. I absolutely LOVE this product - can't believe I didn't hunt it down earlier! Thank you so much for your marvelous invention. You've made many nursing moms' lives MUCH easier."
Amy Martin Omaha, NE, USA July 2009
"My PumpEase has made pumping much easier. It is comfortable and easy to use. I have already recommended it to other nursing moms!"
Becca Rochester, NY, USA July 2009
"When Emily was born early she refused to breastfeed at all. So I had to use a breastpump for 6 months. I said I’d never do it again, but then Aves was born preemie too. Avery was different though because she was alot quicker to learn to breastfeed. So this week was a big challenge completed: I dropped one pumping session at a time until I didn’t need to pump at all anymore!! YAY! Today I’m putting the pump away - no more being tied to the evil machine. Although I did find one thing that made it easier and so I promote it big time. It's a hands free wrap for pumping called PumpEase. It's fantabulous. If you have to pump, you need one! Splurge and just buy one, after all you are saving oodles by pumping anyways."

"I ordered a PumpEase hands free pumping 'bra' and it came in a few days ago. I am IN LOVE!! It's basically a polyester tube top that holds the pump horns in place so you can have both of your hands free while pumping. It works REALLY well. Even when I was holding the horns on with my hands I would sometimes leak down my front when not paying enough attention, and that is a thing of the past!
I was also skeptical of the sizing and if it would work with larger BBs, but it does. One of my close friends has a more average sized chest and loves hers as well, so it seems like a great product all around.
The only downsides - it's a little spendy, and it took about a week to get here from Canada. Both minor inconveniences considering now I can surf the internet, pay bills, etc. while pumping."

"...There are several things on the market that have totally changed my life-style. One being this and the other being that, but none have changed my life as much as the PumpEase bra. This little baby has saved me much wasted time. And for those who know me well...I hate sitting around wasting time. It is extremely hard for me to sit and do just one thing at a time. For example, it's not unheard of for me to eat breakfast and unload the dishwasher at the same time. Or say, bathe the girls and clean up the bathroom. Or perhaps talk on the phone and drive.
The PumpEase is my newest way of multi-tasking. Now, I can claim to (whisper) pump while driving....pump while making cookies....pump while making dinner...and (gasp) pump while applying makeup. However, I can safely say I have never pumped while driving and applying make-up. Whew!
I'm telling you, ladies, if you pump on a regular basis, this is the product for you! If you have one, let me know. If you plan on getting one, let me know. If you hate it....well, you can tell me that too. But I'm guessing there aren't that many of you out there that aren't thrilled with the PumpEase.
*Disclaimer - I in no way am receiving any compensation for this rave review. In fact, PumpEase™ makers don't even know I own one. This is a fully unbiased review based on my personal experience not encouraged by the manufacturer."

"Thank you for this amazing product. I have been exclusively pumping for almost 5 months and only once have I been unable to use the PumpEase. I've had many people ask for advice about EP'ing since I have been doing it since day 1 and buying a hands-free, i.e. PumpEase, is part of my top 5 tips for making it successful."

I have got so much grading done that I'm actually more up-to-date with grades than I was before I was pregnant. Thank you so much for making PumpEase so easy to use, durable and cute!"

"I use PumpEase which I love. Also, it was nice in that it's super adjustable, so ordering online felt like more of a sure thing. They're cute and hide everything, so if someone walks in on you, it's not the worst worst worst thing in the world."

"Natalie is almost eight weeks, and I find it easiest to pump about a half an hour after I feed her. She usually conks out for a nap and I start pumping. I bought a Pumpease, and that has really helped, because I can rock her in her chair and have both hands free while I'm pumping."

"I love my PumpEase! I use it with my Medela Freestyle pump instead of the hands-free kit that it came with. The PumpEase is so much faster to put on and much simpler to use. Plus, it doesn't matter if you want to use it with a bra on or not. It works great for double and single sided pumping, holds the horns nice and tight for great suction, and is so small in the pump bag. Definitely a great product! I'm so glad I found it."
Shanna T. Las Vegas, NV, USA March 2009
"As a working mother, I need to be able to still return emails, answer phone calls, and do paperwork while I lock the office door for pumping breaks. This product allows full use of both hands, and freedom to move around the room without wasting 45 minutes 3 times a day! Thank you!!!"
Heather C. Hemphill, TX, USA March 2009
"I also invested in a PumpEase so I could pump hands-free. That saved my sanity, I kid you not. If you're going to pump more than a few times a week, I highly recommend spending the money. It makes a HUGE difference - especially if you aren't crafty enough to build your own hands-free pumping device!"

"I really love this product. I am known for purchasing the 'hottest baby products', however about half of the time I find that I am not one hundred percent impressed with my purchase. I was completely satisfied with this purchase from the moment it arrived in the mail. I love the way it looks, I love the fit and I especially love the fabric and the quality. I was a bit concerned that the horn openings would be too big and that the pump would not stay tight enough against me, however this was not the case at all even considering that I am quite petite. It fits so perfectly that the suction of the pump does all the work without having to touch anything. I also love that it is made in Canada rather than China, the latter of which I find often translates to poor quality. I own a double electric breast pump and was pumping quite frequently for about a month, so I wish I had purchased this earlier, however I am thankful that I have it now, as I plan to have more children. I am now very excited about pumping and am able to do all of the things that I used to try to do without the PumpEase (not very successfully I might add). This makes pumping a breeze and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this product to anyone and have already done so. Thank-you again! :)"
Alyssa S. Ottawa, ON, Canada February 2009
"Thank you so much for following-up with me and for processing my refund. Although I did not end up being a user of your product, I can see what a benefit it would have been. I have already recommended PumpEase to my friends who are expecting and plan on breastfeeding. After all the research I did, it is my opinion that it is the best product on the market to meet the hands-free pumping need. Thank you so much for your customer service - it speaks volumes for your company."
Julie Seattle, WA, USA February 2009
"Before I purchased PumpEase, pumping was a bit of a chore. Trying to find time in a busy day to pump can sometimes be difficult. Now, with the PumpEase hands-free pumping support, I can do other tasks around the house. Plus, when at work, I can pump while getting work done which brings me home that much sooner to my daughter. I would recommend the PumpEase to anyone who pumps. Fantastic product!"
Athena Long Valley, NJ, USA February 2009
"This is my second child and I pumped at work with both. This round I kept looking for something simple to help me be able to pump both sides at once and still work. I've been looking, reading reviews on bras, etc. and then I found PumpEase by Google search. It seemed easy! So I ordered and it is so easy to use - quick to put on, quick to take off. I love it."
Sara Round Rock, TX, USA February 2009
"I struggled for 4-1/2 months trying to find out how I could pump and use my hands at the same time. I finally started using tape. (I know, how horrible). When I started to develop redness on my skin I knew I had to find a different way to do it. I wondered 'Why the HELL doesn't Target or Walmart or Babies R Us for goodness sake have a hands free pumping bra/device thingie??' I was convinced I would invent it and make millions. Then I found and bought your PumpEase polka dot pump bra. OMG - Godsend. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Please convince these big box retailers that they NEED YOU! We moms need you!"

"I really try to pump each day to accumulate as much breast milk as possible for my little man but it was always a boring job as I couldn't do anything else. I would stare off into space and think of all of the things I could be doing while my wee one was being quiet. Imagine my excitement when I read on an online forum that there was a product that could let me be "hands-free" while doing this tedious task! Now I'm enjoying breakfast, catching up on emails, surfing the net - basically enjoying some "me" time while pumping! I am so happy with the product and absolutely will be using it daily. Thanks PumpEase!"
Anita M. Erin, ON, Canada December 2008
"I am loving this product. I wish that I would have discovered it two years ago, when I was pumping 3-4 times a day at work. Not only is PumpEase functional, but it covers a lot, too, which is great when your co-workers accidentally walk in on you. It is so comfortable. I also love that it is adjustable as a nursing mom's breasts change size as the amount of feedings change."

Vanessa Steinkamp Lake Zurich, IL, USA November 2008
"I just wanted to share details about a FABULOUS product that I tried last night for the first time. It's called a PumpEase support and it allows me to use my double electric pump hands free ... without a special bra, or those clumsy rubber bands you hook onto your bra. It's a really simple band that you just wrap around yourself over your (opened) nursing bra and it holds the breastshields in place.
Seriously, I had been sitting holding my breastshields on while I pump ... and last night I browsed the internet instead ... and lost track of time.
Hope it helps someone else!"

"PumpEase hands-free pumping support is great! It allows me to have a nice cup of tea while expressing with my electric pump, or help my 4 year-old with putting on those dreaded Barbie clothes. It is also especially good for my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - not having to hold the horns in place is a big strain off my wrists! Being able to change the channels on the TV or talk on the phone is a convenience that I didn't have before. I would highly recommend PumpEase to any Mom who needs some freedom of movement while pumping!"
