The Elvie Single Pump is one of the most popular choices around for wearable breast pumps. This sleek, wearable electric breast pump comes with seven different suction levels and features revolutionary noise reduction technology for ultra-quiet and discrete pumping.

Made from BPA-free plastic, the Elvie is designed to fit inside a nursing bra and offer the freedom to multitask while pumping, inside and outside the home. The Elvie Pump can also connect with the Elvie Pump app to monitor milk volume in real-time, track pumping history for each breast and control the pump. This is all with a touch of button so there's no need to interfere with the breast pump while it's in your nursing bra.

Pippeta Hands-Free Breast Pump

For affordability without compromise

While many weareable breast pumps overlap with the features and specifications, some will suit your needs better than others. For example, if you're looking for the most discreet way to express milk while out and about (or even just at home!), then consider investing in the Elvie Breast Pump which features noise reduction technology.

On the other hand, you may prefer the Pippeta Hands-Free Pump which offers lots of similar features to the Elvie, just at a smaller price point - great if you're looking for a breast pump on a budget!

Likewise, you may want to spend a little more to enjoy the lightweight portability of the Fraupow Wearable Breast Pump. It's similar in size and features, however at just 218g but with a 130ml milk capacity, it holds more milk and reduces time to stop and empty the milk chamber!
