Best wearable breast pumps for hands-free pumping

When you’re a parent, every minute is worth its weight in gold, and hard-working products that make your life that little bit easier, like a wearable breast pump, might just become your new best friend. Read on for our verdict on the best wearable breast pumps on the market, as tried and tested by breastfeeding mums. 

By Mumsnet HQ | Last updated Sep 7, 2023


Rather than being stuck in the same place and pinned down by your breast pump, wireless and/or wearable breast pumps are fast becoming the most popular choice for breastfeeding mums. Newer, more innovative and intuitive models like the ones that have made it onto our “best list”, offer the freedom to move and multitask while pumping, are generally quiet enough to allow for discreet pumping on the school run, at your desk, on a train or in the park and enable hands-free operation, and can be conveniently carried around in your changing bag. Who doesn’t need that?

In addition to our guide to the best breast pumps and the best manual breast pumps on the market, we’ve zoned in on hands-free models and done extensive research to find the best wearable breast pumps that Mumsnetters are raving about right now. We spent countless hours examining the genuine feedback and advice from some of our 8 million Mumsnet users to determine which wearable breast pumps met the mark and which fell short. Additionally, we verified each model through input from nursing specialists and consumer reviews, ensuring our top picks are designed to offer optimal comfort whilst enduring multiple pumping sessions throughout the day and night.

Because pumping should be part of your day, not get in the way, we scrutinised many wearable breast pumps and only picked the ones that promise the most efficient pumping sessions - filling those baby bottles in the shortest time possible. Our final selection was then scored on the following: overall quality including parts and accessories, value for money, size and portability, suction strength and mode functions, noise level, and general ease of use including assembly and cleaning.

From the best portable wearable breast pump to the best option for larger breasts, here is our complete list of the best wearable breast pumps.

Best wearable breast pumps - at a glance:

Best overall wearable breast pump: Fraupow Wearable Breast Pump

Best budget wearable breast pump: Fverey Wearable Electric Breast Pump

Best hospital-grade wearable breast pump: Elvie Stride Double Wearable Electric Breast pump

Best smart wearable breast pump: Medela Freestyle Hands-Free Double Electric Wearable Breast Pump

Quietest wearable breast pump: Elvie Pump Single Wearable Electric Breast Pump

1. Best overall wearable breast pump: Fraupow Wearable Breast Pump

Price on writing: £90 | Buy now from John Lewis

Key specs

Single or double pump: Single (pump one breast at a time) | Power source: Rechargeable battery | Number of settings: 4 modes and 12 different intensity levels | Closed system: Yes | BPA free: Yes | Warranty: 12 months for the unit and a 90-day warranty for the parts.

What we like

  • Not too fiddly

  • Lightweight and discreet

  • Achieves great output 

What we don’t like

  • Not as efficient as a hospital-grade pump

  • Only pumps one breast at a time 

What Mumsnet users say

For my first pregnancy quite a few years ago, I had a Medela Pump with wires. This time I have a Fraupow hands-free pump and it’s much better! It’s just nice not feeling pinned to one spot all the time. (Tried and tested by Mumsnet user, CurlsLDN )

Fraupow here! Reasonably quiet and allowed me to get on with working from home and breastfeeding my daughter for one year. Wonderful wee thing, best purchase ever! (Loved by Mumsnet user, mercibucketedyeo)

“I have the Fraupow, it’s really good! You would need to remain upright when moving around, so no bending down or vigorous hoovering!” (Tried and tested by Mumsnet user, TealandTeal)

Our verdict

Weighing in at just 218 grams, the award-winning Fraupow wearable breast pump is lightweight, discreet and super-comfortable to use, according to Mumsnetters. But what’s given this wearable breast pump our “best overall” title for 2023 is that it offers most of the same features as other top-notch wearables on the market – like air pressure pulse technology, anti-leak design, and a full LED touchscreen display, but at a fraction of the price at under £100. Founder and mum Sunita Boyes has also gone the extra mile for mums, offering three 20-minute support calls from a midwife included with purchase.

This Fraupow is made from durable, BPA-free silicone materials and its ergonomic silhouette promises to fit a wide range of breast sizes. It comes standard with a 24mm flange, but more sizes and inserts can be bought separately. It has four modes including massage, pump, lactation and auto as well as 12 different intensity levels with a 20-minute automatic shut-off function. The only downsides? The Fraupow is a single breast pump, and some say the battery life is limited, only offering 90-100 minutes at full power before needing a recharge.

2. Best budget wearable breast pump: Fverey Wearable Electric Breast Pump

Price on writing: £30 | Buy now from Amazon  

Key specs

Single or double pump: Double | Power source: Rechargeable battery | Number of settings: 3 modes and 9 suction levels | Closed system: Yes | BPA free: Yes | Warranty: 12 months for the unit

What we like

  • Great value for money for a double pump

  • Comes with a variety of flange sizes from 19mm to 28mm

  • Easy pouring after use  

What we don’t like

  • Some say it’s noisy when out and about

  • Not as powerful as hospital-grade pumps

What Mumsnet users say

“I got this cheapy one from Amazon which worked well for me but may not be as powerful as the Medela I suppose.” (Tried and tested by Mumsnet user, tfh)

Our verdict

If you’re looking for a double, electric, wearable breast pump that’s easy to use and offers plenty of helpful features, then the Fverey Wearable Electric Breast Pump won't disappoint. At under £50, it’s super-affordable and Mumsnetters rave about the nifty design that fits comfortably and discreetly in your feeding bra.

The sensitive LED touch panel displays battery status, your working mode and adjustable suction level, plus it has a separate massage button to stimulate milk flow before pumping. On full charge, the Fvevery offers around 80 minutes (or 3-5 pumps), which isn’t bad considering it’s a double breast pump. This breast cups have a capacity of 180ml each that’s marked with a tick mark on the milk container, plus it offers precise pouring for less chance of spillage.

3. Best portable wearable breast pump: Momcozy Double Wearable Breast Pump S12 Pro

Price on writing: £140 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Single or double pump: Double | Power source: Rechargeable battery | Number of settings: 3 modes and 9 suction levels | Closed system: Yes | BPA free: Yes | Warranty: 12 months for the unit

What we like

  • Comfortable fit

  • Time efficient

  • Extended battery life (140 minutes)

What we don’t like

  • Not too discreet (peaks out the top of your shirt)

  • Different flange sizes aren’t included

What Mumsnet users say

“I love my Momcozy S12 Pro. I’ve been using this pump for about two months now and I wish I found it sooner; it does not disappoint! It’s perfect for at work or on-the-go pumping and gets the job done.” (Recommended by Mumsnet user, MargotP18)

“Used it when I went back to work and it worked a treat, used to be able to pump at my desk no problem. If you're wanting to pump more than actually breastfeed, I'd look at a hospital grade pump though.” (Tried and tested by Mumsnet user, DaisyChain16)

Our verdict

Need to express on the go, at your desk or in public? Then, the Momcozy S12 will be your perfect breast pumping companion. A little pricey, we know, but this double wearable has earned its title as “The best portable wearable breast pump” as it’s an all-in-one unit that doesn’t require fancy tech or cables, plus it has an extended battery life, with one charge lasting for 140 minutes or 5-6 sessions before needing a quick recharge.

This simple, yet efficient unit also comes with a new double-sealed flange that snugly fits your breasts, allowing for more efficient pumping and less chance of spillage, plus it has a built-in automatic shut-off function in case you fall asleep or get distracted. We also like the newly upgraded 3-mode functionality which now includes Stimulation – to get your milk flowing, Expression – to improve milk flow and Mixed which is both fast and deep.

4. Best hospital-grade wearable breast pump: Elvie Stride Double Wearable Electric Breast pump

Price on writing: £299 | Buy now from John Lewis

Key specs

Single or double pump: Double | Power source: Rechargeable battery | Number of settings: 2 modes and 10 intensity settings | Closed system: Yes | BPA free: Yes | Warranty: 24 months for the unit

What we like

  • Hospital grade strength of up to -270 mmHG

  • Ultra-quiet

  • Includes smart app features

What we don’t like

  • Pricey (Single available for £167)

  • Battery may not last for longer pumping sessions 

What Mumsnet users say

“I love mine. It works well for me (and I have big boobs). Had to have parts replaced a couple of times as per other posters, but customer service is really good and worth it to be able to pump hands-free.” (Recommended by Mumsnet user, ScheisseMinelli)

Our verdict

Whether you’re a mum of multiples or simply planning on pumping more frequently, then a heavy-duty wearable breast pump like the Elvie Stride is a good option. Built for durability, it can handle extensive use without losing suction power or performance, which is why it’s a popular choice amongst Mumsnetters - despite the hefty price tag! It also stands out as being one of the quietest and most discreet breast pumps on our list thanks to the lightweight, compact design. However, this also means that each cup only holds 150ml of milk, as opposed to 180ml which is the standard cup size on other pumps.

If you’re a tech fan who likes to know a little more about your milk supply, then you’ll enjoy the convenience and intuitiveness of the Elvie Stride app companion which includes customisable settings, real-time tracking, guided pump sessions (and reminders), plus pumping history which can help you monitor milk supply and identify patterns.

5. Best manual wearable breast pump: Haakaa Manual Breast Pump

Price on writing: £16 | Buy now from Amazon  

Key specs

Single or double pump: Single | Power source: NA/manual| Number of settings: NA | Closed system: No | BPA free: Yes | Warranty: 90 days

What we like

  • Minimalist design (cord-free)

  • Drop resistant

  • Easy to clean

What we don’t like

  • Not as effective as electric breast pumps

What Mumsnet users say

"Haakaa!! Absolutely amazing invention." (Loved by Mumsnet user, PowPurry)

Our verdict

While the Haaka isn’t a true wearable breast pump (you’ll need a good nursing bra that’s compatible with the Haakaa like this one), this nifty little manual pump still deserves a spot on our list, because according to Mumsnetters – it’s non-invasive, easy to use and works well to extract milk. The soft silicone flange attaches easily to the breast and stays put while you apply gentle pressure to stimulate let down. Another bonus is that it’s a one size fits all and beyond pumping, it’s a great milk collector when breastfeeding on the opposite side. Mums love how simple it is to clean and maintain too as there’s no wires or accessories to faff about with.

For stronger suction, manufacturers suggest folding back the flange and squeezing the bottom whilst attaching the pump to your nipple. The only downside? The pump only has 100ml capacity, so may not be suitable if you need to pump a lot of milk at one time and it can pop off if the suction isn’t secure enough.

6. Best smart wearable breast pump: Medela Freestyle Hands-Free Double Electric Wearable Breast Pump

Medela Freestyle

Price on writing: £300 | Buy now from John Lewis

Key specs

Single or double pump: Double | Power source: Rechargeable battery| Number of settings: 2 modes and 9 suction settings | Closed system: Yes | BPA free: Yes | Warranty: 1 year for the unit and 90 days for the parts  

What we like

  • Super lightweight

  • Transparent design for easy nipple alignment

  • Easy cleaning – with only three parts (dishwasher safe)

What we don’t like

  • Pricey

  • Only comes with 24mm flange size (21mm or 27mm sold separately)

What Mumsnet users say

“I had to exclusively pump for one of mine and I had a Medela Freestyle for that and a very fetching bra thing for hands free! It was great and I lasted till dc was just about to turn a year.” (Recommended by Mumsnet user, TheDogAndTrumpet)

“Highly recommended the Medela Freestyle. It offers great suction and a good battery life. I got some cheap pump bras on Amazon that worked well with it.” (Tried and tested by Mumsnet user, @Isa0975)

“Can highly recommend the Medela. I pumped for a year and it was quick, efficient, easy to clean and use. Worth its weight in gold. I’ve just bought a new one for the next baby!” (Loved by Mumsnet user, SillyBry)

Our verdict

As leaders in breast pump innovation, Medela certainly know a thing or two about what mums need from a high-quality breast pump, and the Medela Freestyle is their latest wearable model. Unlike most other wearables on our list, where the motor (or main unit) is attached to the cup, this pocket-sized pump is a separate unit, allowing the lightweight collection cups, which weigh only 76g each, to fit discreetly inside your bra. The cups are designed to maximise milk flow, with a broader lower half to support the underside of the breast and can be worn vertically or slightly tilted outwards for better visibility of the nipple and milk flow. Mumsnetters also agree that the suction is strong, but smooth and not painful.

This wearable uses a closed system design, where the tubing connects the breast shields to the motor unit, ensuring that milk, moisture and air can’t flow into the tubing. Plus, the unit itself is simple to use with both stimulation and expression phases, where you have full control to adjust your maximum comfort vacuum. Medela users also gain access to the award-winning Medela app - built for ease of use. It offers a breastfeeding tracker, personalised content, community support and more.

7. Best easy-to-use wearable breast pump: Vornn by Vorsprung Wearable Electric Breast Pump

Price on writing: £38.50 | Buy now from Amazon  

Key specs

Single or double pump: Single | Power source: Rechargeable battery| Number of settings: 2 modes and 9 suction settings | Closed system: Yes | BPA free: Yes | Warranty: 1 year for the unit and 90 days for the parts  

What we like

  • Good value for money

  • Simple design

  • Long battery life

What we don’t like

  • Some say it’s noisier than manufacturers claim.

What Mumsnet users say

“I used this one for a good six months or so including when I went back to work. Really easy to use. Got as much as with my Medela Swing if not more. A bit noisy but discreet enough, I even used it at a wedding sat at the table and at my desk at work with a big cardi.” (Recommended by Mumsnet user, Brbreeze)

Our verdict

If you’re looking for a straightforward, easy-to-use wearable breast pump with no fancy frills or fuss, then the Vornn by Vorsprung Wearable electric pump is a good, reliable choice. This single wearable breast pump comes with all the great features of pricier models like soft silicone shields and parts, a USB-C cable, bra adjustment buckle and an easy-to-use LCD touch screen that allows you to switch between different modes and speed levels, but at a fraction of the price.

Plus, it offers a comfortable expressing experience through lightweight suction cups and completely softened contact points, so it won't irritate your nipples or surrounding breast tissue. The extended two-hour battery life and USB-C charger makes it compatible with car charges, power banks and computers, making it super convenient to pump on the go. Another bonus is the silicone valve that prevents milk leakage and milk back-flow, but some reviewers have pointed out that it’s best to pump whilst being in an upright position. In a nutshell, this pump gets a thumbs up for its ease of use, solid pumping strength, and the ability to hold a decent amount of breastmilk (150ml).

8. Quietest wearable breast pump: Elvie Pump Single Wearable Electric Breast Pump

Price on writing: £269 | Buy now from Boots

Key specs

Single or double pump: Single | Power source: Rechargeable battery| Number of settings: 2 modes and 14 intensity settings | Closed system: Yes | BPA free: Yes | Warranty: 2-year warranty on the pump and 90-day warranty on washable components

What we like

  • Ultra-quiet

  • Small and discreet

  • Comes with a smart app that controls the pump and monitors milk flow

What we don’t like

  • Pricey for a single unit

What Mumsnet users say

“I exclusively pumped with the Elvie for three months. Absolutely loved it.” (Recommended by Mumsnet user, gemloving)

I bought a single Elvie unit out of curiosity. I haven't used the MAM ever since. The Elvie is convenient for my needs (exclusively breastfeeding but want to introduce baby to the odd expressed milk feed). The Elvie allows me to be truly hands free, it does need charging after 2/3 uses, but seems to charge quickly (it is a small unit, hence holding a small charge). (Recommended by Mumsnet user, MuddaUdders)

“The Elvie isn't as powerful as other pumps I've used, but for what I use it for it’s fine. It's discreet enough that I pump on the nursery drop-off in the morning and have happily done the food shop with it on under a coat with no funny looks. I also love that I'm not plugged into a wall, as I have three-year-old twins to entertain as well as five-month-old.” (Tried and tested by Mumsnet user, Killeen88)

Our verdict

There’s no doubt that Elvie’s breast pumps are a firm favourite amongst Mumsnetters and their wearable version is proving just as popular – for good reason.  This single unit is by far the quietest and most discreet wearable on our list, with some mums even able to do the grocery shop with it tucked away in a nursing bra (as explained above).  

It’s also simple to use and clean with no cords or tubes and only five parts to clean. Another standout feature is the intuitiveness of the unit - as it automatically switches from Stimulation into Expression mode when it detects letdown and will pause when the bottle is full, so no chance of overfilling, leaks, or spillage. You have the option to store the milk you've just pumped in the refrigerator using the provided lids, eliminating the need to transfer it to a different container.

Elvie manufacturers have made sure not to miss the finer details like brightness control settings on the hub, a side selector function which allows you to track which breast you're pumping from and default intensity settings so you can save your preferred pumping settings. It’s also worth mentioning that this breast pump comes with a carry bag, two bottles and two sets of breast shields (24mm and 28mm).

9. Best wearable breast pump for large breasts: BellaBaby Wearable Breast Pump

Price on writing: £31 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Single or double pump: Double | Power source: Rechargeable battery| Number of settings: 4 modes and 6 suction levels | Closed system: Yes | BPA free: Yes | Warranty: 1 year warranty

What we like

  • Great value for money

  • Comfortable for larger breasts

  • Effective, powerful suction

What we don’t like

  • Battery doesn’t last that long

  • Cups aren’t entirely translucent so difficult to judge nipple placement

 What Mumsnet users say

“Bellababy from Amazon and get a pumping bra. I used to pump while getting on with things at home- had the pump in my pocket- charge lasts ages. It can be loud, but you get clips that attach to the pump and connect to a milk bag if needed.” (Recommended by Mumsnet user, Danikm151)

Our verdict

For mums with larger breasts, a suitable wearable breast pump should offer adjustable flange sizes, have a range of customisable mode and suction levels to tweak for comfort and be lightweight enough not to put further strain on the chest. The BellaBaby Wearable breast pump delivers on all these points and more as it comes with 24mm and 28mm flanges/breast shields and is made from food-grade silicone with a soft edge and comfortable seal, making it skin-friendly for sensitive breasts. It’s quiet too, with manufacturers claiming that it’s vibration sound is lower than 40dB, or the equivalent of a gentle whisper.

BellaBaby’s cups can take 180ml of breast milk as opposed to 150ml that you’ll find with most other brands, so if you produce a lot of breast milk with each pump, this is a good choice. We also appreciated the stable design and easy pouring spout, so the milk won’t spill if you have to set the cup down or pour in a hurry.

What is a wearable breast pump?

A wearable breast pump is similar to other types of breast pump in how it extracts milk, but this nifty device lets you pump milk hands-free while you're out and about or doing chores around the house. Most models fit right into your bra without any cords or attachments getting in the way. So, you can go about your day and still take care of your milk supply effortlessly. Plus, many wearable breast pumps come with adjustable settings, allowing you to find your perfect pumping rhythm and comfort level.

How do I choose the best type of breast pump for me?

When choosing the right wearable breast pump for your lifestyle and needs, there are a few factors to consider before you buy:  

The hands-free design: The wearable pump's design should be sleek, yet solid allowing you to move freely and multitask while pumping. Some pumps like the Medela Freestyle Breast Pump have a separate hub or unit that fits seamlessly into your pocket, with just the cups attached to your breast, whilst most others have the hub and cups attached as a single unit that fits into your nursing bra.

Budget: Compare the features and prices of different pumps within your budget. Luckily, we’ve included a variety of wearable breast pumps on our list ranging from £30 to £300.

Suction strength and modes: Look for a wearable pump with adjustable suction levels and modes that suit your comfort and milk expression needs. For instance, some pumps like the Fraupow Wearable Breast Pump has a gentle massage function to stimulate the letdown reflex before pumping.

Flange size options: Opt for pumps that offer different flange sizes to ensure a comfortable fit for your breast shape and size. Some pumps come with more than one flange size, whilst others indicate that you need to buy them separately. Regardless, it’s important to find the right size flange for you, as this will affect your comfort level as well as how much milk you get to extract.

According to feeding experts at Medela, you’ll need to re-evaluate your flange size if you find that one or more of the following are happening while you’re pumping:

  • Discomfort is caused by your nipple rubbing against the sides of the breast shield tunnel.

  • Excessive areola is being drawn into the breast shield tunnel.

  • Redness appears on or near the nipple during and/or after pumping.

  • Nipples or areola turn white during and/or after pumping.

  • Your breasts remain full after pumping.

Battery life: Consider how long the pump's battery lasts to ensure it can support your typical pumping sessions without frequent recharging, especially if you’re using the pump on the go.

Hygiene features: Look for pumps with closed systems that prevent milk from entering the tubing, ensuring hygiene and ease of cleaning. The good news is that all the pumps on our list have closed systems except for the Haakaa which is a manual wearable pump.

Smart features: if you’re tech savvy and like to stay on top of your pumping schedule, choose a wearable pump that has additional app capabilities for real-time monitoring, history tracking, and personalised settings.

Comfort and fit: If you want to learn more about a pump you have in mind, read more reviews on our Mumsnet Forum  for first-hand tips and advice to assess its comfort as well as how well it stays in place.

Noise level: Consider the noise level if you plan to pump discreetly in various settings.

Portability: Check if the pump is lightweight, compact, and easy to carry, especially if you're often out and about.

Return policy: Ensure you understand the return policy in case the pump doesn't meet your expectations.

Do wearable breast pumps actually work?

Yes, wearable breast pumps can be effective tools for expressing milk. They’re designed to provide convenience and flexibility, allowing mums to pump milk hands-free while engaging in other activities. However, the effectiveness of a wearable breast pump depends on factors such as the pump's design, suction strength, fit, and the user's milk supply.

Many women find wearable breast pumps to be helpful in maintaining their milk supply and expressing or pumping milk conveniently, especially when they need to pump on the go or while multitasking. However, individual experiences may vary, and it's important to choose a high-quality pump that suits your needs and comfort.

What to look for when choosing a wearable breast pump

Firstly, it’s important to read reviews like this one so that you have a good idea of the variety of good wearable breast pumps on the market.  If you’re considering a particular one, be sure to follow our guidelines above on how to choose the best type of wearable breast pump for you, plus consider the following:

Compatibility - If you plan to use a wearable breast pump with a specific nursing bra, check if the pump is compatible with your preferred bra style.

Support and accessories - Consider what comes with the pump, such as extra flanges, storage bags, bottles or cooler bags. Availability of replacement parts and customer support can be beneficial.

Additional features - While cost is a consideration, prioritise the features that are most important for your needs. Sometimes, investing in a higher-quality pump can offer better performance and longevity.

Can I wear a hands-free breast pump on the go?

Yes! In fact, one of the primary advantages of wearable breast pumps is their mobility and convenience. These pumps are designed to allow you to pump milk while you're engaged in various activities, such as working, walking or even running errands. However, take note that some manufacturers suggest sitting upright for maximum effect and don’t recommend vigorous activities that require bending down - like vacuuming.

Wearable breast pumps have been cleverly designed to fit discreetly into your bra, allowing you to move freely without being tied down by cords or attachments. This hands-free feature makes it easier to pump in different settings, whether you're at work, travelling, or simply out and about.

What’s the best wearable breast pump to buy?

There are various wearable breast pumps to buy in the UK that’ll undoubtedly suit your needs, but we've picked the Fraupow Wearable Breast Pump as our overall winner. It's affordable, has powerful suction capabilities, comes with 12 different intensity levels and is light enough to pop into your nursing bra with minimal fuss. This model gets a lot of love on our forums too.

Tips for using a wearable breast pump

Find the right fit: Ensure the flange size fits your breasts comfortably to avoid discomfort or improper milk expression. Experiment with different sizes if needed.  According to Motif Medical:

  • If you measured up to 17mm you’ll fit in a 21mm flange.

  •  If you measure up to 22mm use size 24mm.

  • If you measured up to 23mm select size 27mm.

  • If you measured up to 26mm use 30mm.

  •  If you measured up to 32 mm use size 36 mm.

Adjust suction levels Customise suction levels to mimic your baby's nursing rhythm and your comfort level. Gradually increase or decrease suction to find what works best for you.

Position the pump securely in your bra to prevent leaks and ensure efficient milk expression. Make sure it's aligned properly over your nipple and areola.

Stay relaxed as this can enhance milk flow. Find a comfortable and quiet space and consider using relaxation techniques or looking at pictures of your baby to encourage letdown.

Monitor and empty regularly- Keep track of your pumping sessions using an app or timer to maintain a pumping schedule. Regularly emptying your breasts helps maintain milk supply and prevents discomfort.
