It’s one thing to be trapped under a nursing baby. (The coos! The milk breath! The unabashed excuse to simply relax.) It’s quite another to be stuck tethered to your breast pump. (Granted you’re not so worried about dropping your phone on it, but still.)
One way to make it a little more comfortable is with a quality pumping bra, but which one should you try? The best pumping bras for you might be different from what your bestie prefers, but they’re all designed to keep your pump in place while keeping your hands free to do other things. Some kinds are meant to be worn only while you’re actually pumping while others function more like regular nursing bras with clips that come down for easy access.
Whatever your preference, a good bra is one of those pumping essentials you definitely need, so we’ve rounded up some of the top-rated and most raved about hands-free pumping bras to make your sessions just a little bit easier and more convenient. Take that time back, mama—even if that just means you’re scrolling TikTok looking for the best breastfeeding bottles (or just scrolling TikTok for fun). Because, priorities.
