FAQ

What’s so great about this bra?

When we were new nursing moms, we tried every pumping bra on the market-- none of them worked right, felt right, or looked right.

So we made our own: the first sleek and stylish sports bra moms can nurse and pump in. We added everything that we WANTED in a bra: top functionality to efficiently produce milk, comfort and breathability, adjustability as our bodies dramatically changed size after birth, moisture-wicking fabric when we embarrassingly leaked, and a sports bra design so that when we were ready to workout, we didn’t have to change bras.

We ELIMINATED all unnecessary bells and whistles like latches for nursing and instead created an innovative design with stretchable seams to allow moms to pull fabric down for easy nursing. We fine tuned our prototypes on dozens and dozens of moms over the years- and we’re absolutely PUMPED with the final design.


Do I really need a multi-pack?

We highly recommend the 2 Bra Pack or 3 Bra Pack because trust us, you will want extras for laundry day, which for new moms is almost every day... No joke, between the breast milk, sweat, and B.O., you will have to wash your Milx bra fairly often (which is easy with the included mesh laundry bag!) and then wait for it to air dry, and during that time you will be missing it. You can always buy a Single Bra Pack to start, but you do get a 9% savings when you purchase a multi-pack from the start.


H
ow does it work?

Milx bras are sports bras you can wear all day, with functionality to seamlessly nurse and pump in. To nurse, simply pull both layers of fabric under one boob. To pump, pull both layers of fabric away from your boob. Place the flange (the Madonna cone part) over your nipple. Push the flange through the hole in the bottom layer of fabric. Connect a bottle to the flange. Pull the top layer of fabric under the bottle for support. See our how-to description for more details. Email info@milx.mom with any questions!

What size should I get if I’m in between sizes?

Start with your regular sports bra size. If you fall in between sizes, size down. Our adjustable band around the rib allows moms to tighten the bra as their bodies shrink after birth, but the bra should fit snugly so that the flanges and pump accessories feel secure. If the straps feel too long, you probably need a size down.

How should I use the adjustable strap?

We provided the adjustable strap around the ribs so that the bra can fit as your body changes shape. Connect the adjustable strap before you put on the bra, and only adjust it every few weeks/months as your body changes shape. No need to connect/disconnect the bra every time you take it on/off!


What if I order the wrong size?

We get it! Your boob and body size is all over the place and it may be hard to tell what size is best. You may return or exchange a re-sellable item in clean and unwashed, unworn, and unused condition (not nursed or pumped in) within 30 days of your order date for a full refund or exchange. Please email info@milx.mom to begin the return/exchange process. We will ask you to please send the bra in perfect condition (not having pumped or nursed in) with box and once received, you will get a full refund. Simultaneously, place a new order for the correct size on site.

Items in not new condition, i.e. soiled with deodorant, perfume, cigarette smoke, breast milk or cooking odors cannot be accepted.  Items that have been exposed to these odors are not resalable and will not be accepted for return. Your returns must be in their original, plastic bag. Feel free to keep the box packaging.

Fall between sizes? Order a 2 Bra Pack with two different sizes- you will likely use them both since your body will shrink as your baby gets older. For example, you may be a Large the day your baby is born, but 3-4 months postpartum, you will likely go down a size, so the M/L pack would be the best option. Or, try on both bras (without using them to nurse or pump) and send us back the one that doesn't fit for a refund!


What pumps are compatible a Milx bra?

Milx bras work with all double electric breast pumps, i.e. Medela, Spectra, and wireless pumps (Freemie, Willow).


What is the return policy?

If you are not happy with your purchase, you may return or exchange a re-sellable item in clean, unworn and unused condition within 30 days of your order date for a full refund or exchange.
