Simple Wishes Pumping Bra Review – Hands-Free Bustier

Simple-Wishes-Pumping-Bra-ReviewIf you are a pumping mom and spend any length of time milkin’ the girls, then you know what a pain it can be to sit there and hold the flanges up for 20 plus minutes. Especially if you pump multiple times per day.

One of my greatest discoveries, when I was a working and pumping mom, was a hands-free pumping bra. I do not know how I existed before buying one. I pumped 4-5 times while away from my baby and remember dreading pumping because one, it was boring and two, I felt useless. 

When I finally got a pumping bra, it opened the door to a whole new world of multitasking! I suddenly could do all kinds of things while pumping. Working, typings, reading, texting, eating, entertaining my baby, etc. 

I have used many different brands of pumping bras and Simple Wishes is one of my favorites. 

Simple Wishes Pumping Bra

Simple-Wishes-Pumping-Bra-ReviewThe Simple Wishes pumping bra is not to be confused with the all-in-one bra. This is a bustier style bra which means it is made to only be worn when pumping. It is not an actual bra.

It has a zipper in the front and can be worn over your nursing bra to hold the flanges in place as you pump. Once you are finished, you take it off. 

I like the bustier style pumping bras for a few reasons:

  1. They are easy to adjust and put on so you don’t have to fuss with it.
  2. Some all-in-one pumping bras can be unsupportive or can’t be worn under a tight fitting shirt as you can see the folds of the bra under the shirt. The bustier pumping bras allow you to wear any bra or nursing bra you want.
  3. Can be tightened for a better hold on the flanges when pumping. 


  • Adjustable Fit Options:
    1. The front has two zippers with a 2″ removable panel that allows you to move the flanges closer together for a more custom fit.
    2. The back panel is velcro and allows you to adjust the bustier to fit your ribcage by adjusting up to 10″
  • Includes straps for more support.
  • Machine washable
  • Made of 83% cotton, 17% spandex
  • 2 color choices – Black, pink

This video gives a quick overview of the Simple Wishes bra so you can see how it works:

Versatility of the Simple Wishes Straps

All Simple Wishes bustiers include straps. 

You can choose to wear the straps or leave it strapless. They are simple to put on and take off. I did not always use the straps as I typically used the bustier over my nursing bra (folded the nursing bra down and put the bustier over the top) so I felt I had plenty of support. 

But there were times that I needed the support of the straps. If I wore a less supportive nursing bra or if I was wearing a regular bra that I need to take off to pump then the straps were a great help.

If you are larger chested, then you know trying to put on a strapless bra is not the best fit. You just need a little more support. The straps provide that. This is actually one of the huge differences in why I love the Simple Wishes bra over the Medela pumping bra. It is must more supportive with or without the straps. 

Here are a few options for wearing your Simple Wishes bustier:


Standard Straps


Racerback Straps








 Sizes and Colors

Most bustier type pumping bras are sized in a Small – Large size range. The Simple Wishes is no exception. This can be confusing to figure out what size you should be.

I suggest following Simple Wishes sizing chart:


If you want an even easier way to find out your size, Simple Wishes has a cool calculator on their site that allows you to simply enter your bra size and it tells you what size bustier you should get. Fabulous! You can see that calculator here.

The Simple Wishes D-Lite bustier comes in two colors: Black and Pink.















Simple-Wishes-Pumping-Bra-ReviewSimple Wishes pumping bra is one of my favorites. 

If you want the flexibility to be able to wear different bras rather than just pumping bras but still want to be able to pump hands-free, then the bustier style pumping bra is a great option. 

I used mine a lot and found it held up to being washed and used nearly daily for over a year without issue. 

One of the things I like most about simple wishes is that even though you pick a size, you can still adjust the bra to better fit you and your body shape. You won’t find that with most bustier pump bras. It is very supportive because it fits so well.

The addition of the straps is also a win in my opinion. It gives moms with different body types a lot more options for comfortable hands-free pumping. 

If you want hands-free pumping at an affordable price, this bra is well worth it! I highly recommend Simple Wishes!

Where to Buy

The best price I have found is on Amazon. 

It is about 25% lower there than if you buy it directly from the Simple Wishes site. Every penny counts, right!

    I wish I had found this article back when I was pumping! I went back to work when my daughter was 6 weeks only and pumped at work until she was 15 months old. I literally had 30 minutes to eat and pump at the same time before I had to be back to work. Pumping and working is just not easy, but at least this bra gives you free hands to eat your lunch while you pump! Would have been a life saver for me!

      Being able to multitask while pumping is a must for moms to make breastfeeding and working successful in my opinion. Pumping is hard enough without feeling like you are completely tied down! It is awesome that you pumped until she was 15 months! That is an amazing accomplishment. Working and pumping is a tough journey for some and I love that there are products like this that help make it a bit more bearable. Thank you for your comment!

    🙂 . I feel kind of weird on this page. And I am all smiles. But I love it. Only because I love any idea that is trying to make life better for mommies and babies. Two of my favorite things on Earth. No pun intended. Lol.

    This product looks very nice for the woman who is on the go and who is busy. As a Father and husband of a woman who worked while breast feeding. This is an area where you want to simplify and streamline as much as possible. Cool

    • Heather Grace says:

      It really is a must have for moms who work and pump! Pumping is hard enough (time wise) so any little savings is a huge help. Besides, women are natural-born multitaskers so this puts us back in our natural habitate. haha

    I am happy I stumble on to your site today. I will be expecting baby number 4 soon and have never heard of a hands free pumping bra.

    What a great idea. And they look very comfortable. This bra is going to making pumping several times a day feel like a breeze.

    Thanks for the review

      Congratulations! The Simple Wishes bra is very comfortable. It is one of my favorites because it is so supportive. I am not sure how I would have survived pumping without a hands-free bra! It really is a must have!
