Other breast pumps are often pre-packed with 1 to 2 breast shield sizes. In the best case, it’s a perfect fit – if not, you’ll be off to the store again to find your breast shield. Often times, one side of your breast may require a different size, but many breast pump companies make you buy a pair of breast shields when you really need a different size for each side. All these are a waste of earth’s limited resources, your time and money.
At LoveAmme®, we offer breast shields in 5 sizes to help you achieve your ideal fit, for the most comfortable and efficient pumping experience. LoveAmme® FlexSkin™ Breast Shields are available in 19 / 22 / 24 / 27 / 30mm, and are sold individually so you get the flexibility to select the most suitable size for each breast. Naturally, our breast shields are made using only 100% Food-Grade Silicone. We engage independent labs to certify it to be BPA and Phthalates-Free.
By conforming to your breast contours, the soft silicone facilitates seamless, spill-free sessions and reduces milk wastage. They are so secure you can even use them while you pump in semi-lying position. The FlexSkin™ Breast Shields create a gentle massaging action, which painful breast and nipples would be particularly grateful for. Say goodbye to stiff breast shields and pump in unparalleled comfort!
- Unrivalled Pumping Comfort

Your breast shield size will differ depending on your skin elasticity.
Your shield size could also change over your breast pumping journey with the variation in your milk supply
LoveAmme’s breast shields are sold singly. If you are buying our breast shields pre-partum from a retailer with an extended exchange policy, you may want to consider only testing one side to confirm if you have selected the right size, and the unopened one would still be valid for exchange.
Hard breast shields made of PP is more likely to result in leakages while pumping as it doesn’t conform to your breast contours.
