After already having 2 kids & breastfeeding for 8+ months with each child, I have spent hours upon hours of pumping. Oh, how I despise pumping! But it's part of it especially when you work full-time. I think part of that is the fact that I am ADD (self-diagnosed) & all I can think about is all of the things I need to be doing while pumping for those 15+ minutes. Oh yes, even at work! And to know that in 3 months I will rejoin that club I must say I dread it. I don't mind the breastfeeding & know that it's what is right for me & my child.
So, I was super excited for the chance to try out Simple Wishes Signature Hands Free Pumping Bra.
They were super kind to send me a pink one in size XS to M (it's adjustable).
Even though I haven't actually pumped with it yet...I have tried it on!
I'm amazed at how well the adjustable sizing fits.
Come on...a bra that fits from XS-M...who would've thought.
But it really fits!
And it's actually comfortable!
(Too bad my "real" bra isn't that comfortable)
They also include an optional center panel to achieve a perfect fit...

The back panel which velcros into place makes it adjustable for sizing (adjusts the band size by 10 inches)
Before trying it out I was a tad worried that the velcro wouldn't stay...but it's VERY secure!
And no worries about which pump you have..because it works with ALL electric pumps.
So, it just 3 months this will be me...
My ADD can handle this...not even to mention that this will be my 3rd baby.
And with Maddox & Emma still being little..they require a lot of attention.
And this picture is a perfect example of how I will look on my break at work. A nurse doesn't have much down time.
Now, the biggest question is why in the world didn't I buy one of these with my first two.
This baby isn't even here yet and I consider it a NECESSITY!
And of course such an awesome thing was created by mother's! People that actually know & understand the necessity of a hands free pump bra.

Simple Wishes isn't just about bra's...they also offer Honey Suckle Breastmilk Storage Bags. which they were so generous to send me to review.
I can't even tell you how many bags I have used in the past. Just imagine
20 + ounces pumped milk a day x a combined 16 months.
Oh yeah, does your brain spin from the math.
I LOVE the fact that their bags are leak proof. I can't even tell you how much precious milk I've lost because of leaky bags.
LOVE the Multi-Ridged bottom to resist cracking & leaking. Once again I have lost countless bags of milk in the past due to splitting/cracking. Anyone that has pumped before understands the pain of losing a bag full of milk.
And of course LOVE that they're BPA Free & Oxo-BioDegradable (just imagine all of those bags I've thrown away with the other two)
You can purchase all of their products directly from their site, Simple Wishes
And they make awesome shower gifts because the Hands Free bra is definitely a necessity!
