What Breast Shield sizes are available and how will I know if they’ll fit?
Elvie Pump comes with a 24mm and 28mm breast shield (often called a flange), a pack of two 21mm breast shield is also available to purchase.
Elvie's Breast Shields are sized based on the width of the base of your nipple. You can measure the width of the base of your nipple with a ruler. The Breast Shield sizes are as follows:
- Base of nipple width between approximately 16mm and 18mm = 21mm breast shield
- Base of nipple width between approximately 18mm and 21mm = 24mm breast shield
- Base of nipple width between approximately 21mm and 25mm = 28mm breast shield
The size of your nipple may change over the course of your breastfeeding journey, so please keep the other Breast Shields that are included in the box in case you need them at a later date.
How do I know which Breast Shield size to use?
To determine the correct size, put the Breast Shield on with the sizing symbol facing upwards and place your nipple in the centre of the fit lines. The fit lines should align with the outside of your nipple.
Try different Breast Shields to find the best fit for you - a 24mm and a 28mm are provided with Elvie Pump and if you need a smaller size you can purchase a 21mm.
To comfortably pump on both sides, repeat this process for both nipples to ensure you have the correct Breast Shield for each nipple.
No two nipples point in the same direction so it's also really important to align the Breast Shield to the direction of your nipples when you are putting the breast pump on.
Lanolin cream can be used for lubrication to reduce the likelihood of sore nipples.
Keep the unused Breast Shields in a safe place. Women’s bodies often change during the pumping life cycle, so you may find that another Breast Shield size becomes a better fit.
