Elvie wearable electric breast pump
« on: May 06, 2023, 12:31:45 pm »
Hi ladies,

As some of you may recall I've previously been wary on here about breast pumping because I think we need to be careful. This is one of those areas where we are working off-plan because a breast pump is of course intended for pregnant mothers expressing milk. I was also cautious because about six years ago I used a pump and my prolactin levels were high - I was producing milk. My professional medics cautioned me about breast pumping back then, especially before the breasts had developed to their full extent under hormone treatment, because they told me it's possible to cause tissue damage.

So I've waited a long time for my breasts fully to develop of their estrogen-encouraged accord. They grew to D or DD cup which I am very happy about. However, I have always been dissatisfied with the nipples.

Encouraged by reading others on here, I decided to invest in an Elvie single wearable silent breast pump as it has such great reviews and I can report that as far as I am concerned it is amazing! My nipples and areolas are really expanding now and I suspect my breasts are too.

I love the fact that it's programmable with the Elvie App, fits inside a sports bra, and you can get on with other things. It's almost silent.

Thanks for the info on your wireless breast pumps! I pump regularly, both to increase my breast/nipple size and hopefully to induce lactation.

I am currently a 36 D, but with F cup nipples. I need to carry silicone nipple shields in my bra to avoid discomfort. I am using a Spectra hospital grade dual motor breast pump, with regular 30 minute sessions at full power.

But I am tied to the cables and tubes, so a wireless pump would be fantastic. I am worried that it would not produce the suction of my mains pump and would be difficult to conceal in my bra. But the idea of being sucked in the supermarket is intriguing.
