Do you need a special bra to pump?

Is a hands-free pump worth it?
It is cost-effective since you can interchange a single pump on both breasts. The downside is just that you’d spend more time expressing this way than you would with double pumps. You can control pumping activities via the app. Noiseless to a great degree.
Should I get one or two Elvie pumps?
If it’s within your budget, I recommend getting the Elvie Pump Double, for convenience’s sake. However, a single pump is fast and efficient enough that you could get away with simply switching sides to pump both breasts.
Does the Elvie pump leak?
Does the Elvie pump leak? No, as long as you’re not lying down or working out. It’s worth noting every part of the chamber – like the valves, spouts and seals – must be totally dry after cleaning before you reassemble the pump. Otherwise it loses suction and doesn’t get as much milk out.
