Elvie is the leading brand in wearable breast pumps and accessories, with millions of mamas worldwide falling in love with the freedom of discreet pumping.

Their hero product, the Elvie Pump has become a favourite with many, however with the launch of their newest breast pump, the Elvie Stride, there’s one question that’s on everyone’s mind.. 

What’s the difference between these two products? And which one of them would be the right one for me?

Well, let’s take a look and find out…

Who is Elvie?

It’s not just revolutionary breast pumps that Elvie create. As well as producing amazing fem-technology, Elvie is a business born with a mission to empower women.

Passionate about challenging taboo women’s issues, Tania Boler founded Elvie in 2013. Partnering with Alexander Asseily, the goal was to create a global hub of connected health and lifestyle products to bring women’s technology out of the dark ages. Elvie soon became one of the largest, most trusted names in breastfeeding.

Elvie Pump

As the world’s first silent, wearable breast pump, the advanced technology seen in the Elvie Pump is revolutionary. This single or double breast pump was designed to eliminate noise completely, while mamas can express on the go with ultimate discretion. 

With absolutely no tubes or wires, the Elvie Pump is super portable and can be easily placed into bra. Plus, with just five parts to assemble it also offers hassle-free cleaning, another big tick for pumping mamas!

Elvie Stride

Elvie’s newest pump, the Elvie Stride also allows mamas to express discreetly without compromising on pumping performance. The pump offers stronger suction thanks to the hospital-grade motor which is powered by the clip-on Hub.

Clever in-app technology offers complete control thanks to ten intensity settings for both stimulation and expression modes.

The Elvie Pump and Elvie Stride are both closed-system electric breast pumps and are available in both single and double options. Each collection cup also features a 150ml capacity as well as being BPA free and fridge and freezer safe.

Portable and wearable

The Elvie Pump eliminates the hassle of fiddling with tubes and wires as its sleek design keeps your hands and body free to move. The five-part system is quick to assemble and means the pump can be popped into the bra for easy, on-the-go pumping. 

The Elvie Stride equally offers a wearable and portable pumping package. Compared with the Elvie Pump, the Elvie Stride includes an external Hub where the electric motor is located. This simply clips onto the belt or waistband of your clothing and voila! Hands-free pumping!


The Elvie Pump's patented technology makes it ultra-quiet for the most peaceful pumping sessions. The Elvie Stride features similar noise reduction technology which helps you blend into the background for expression discretion.

Either breast pumps are fantastic options, however your lifestyle and needs may affect which one would be better for you. For example, consider where you’ll likely want to express, will it be at home by yourself, or will you be in the office or meeting with friends? 

If the latter, you’re likely looking for a breast pump that offers the ultimate discretion and portability, so the Elvie Pump in single or double option might be the option for you.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more cost-effective solution to pumping and a stronger suction, then the Elvie Stride offers an array of features similar to the Elvie Pump yet at a lower price point.
