Who is the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump best for?
The Pumply Wearable Breast Pump is an electric breast pump that comes with a plethora of accessories to make using it easier and more efficient. It's also designed to be easy-going and quiet while still getting the job done and claiming to produce double your old pump's output in minutes. This would make it a wonderful option for on-the-go parents and mum's that need to fit pumping into a busy day.
As it's designed to be more quiet and fast, it will also be a great choice for breastfeeding parents with more than one child in the household. It's designed to be less likely to disturb your little one while they nap, and won't take up too much of you time, giving you the ability to pump while you do other things.
There are a few good deals on if you were wanting to purchase the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump, but it isn't as affordable as other options from brands like Lumina and Pippeta so if you're not wanting to splurge too much on an electric breast pump, this may not be for you. It is cheaper than some other similar breast pumps though.
The Pumply Wearable Breast Pump's design
As it's palm-sized and wireless, the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump's design appears to be compact and easy to use. It promises quick and efficient pumping with minimal fuss and comfortable, massaging suction so, it could be a top pick for mum's that aren't big into overly complicated and tech-heavy electric breast pumps. It can seemingly be assembled in four simple steps so, again, it's one for convenience and simplicity.
It's quiet but not completely silent, which is a design feature that stands out, with many electric breast pumps being a little noisy, causing embarrassment for some parents. Combined with the smaller size, the design is definitely discreet.

It's compact, easy to use, and the quiet operation makes it perfect for use at work. I highly recommend this pump to any working mother"

I would definitely recommend Pumply to any breastfeeding mother!"
On the other hand, Latoya wasn't completely satisfied: "The battery life isn’t as long as I’d like, but it gets the job done. And my breasts are bigger so, I need a bigger size I believe. My baby is eating way more, so I’m trying to keep up with the demand!"
The Pumply Wearable Breast Pump's usability
As previously mentioned, the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump is clearly made to be a more accessible electric breast pump option. It features only two modes, stimulation and expression, with 10 adjustable suction levels split between the two. You can customise it to make it work for you and make the overall user experience easier.
Reviewer, Amber, said: "One really neat function is the massage mode - it's like a vibrate mode to help stimulate milk production. Overall, the pump is really comfortable and has made pumping a little easier for us mums."
Busy mum, Janice, said: "This is my #1 baby purchase. Rather than being tied up to pumps and tubes and a chair, I pump while bottle feeding my baby, walking, driving, cleaning, eating dinner, etc."

Our final verdict
As a middle-of-the-range option when it comes to price, the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump seems to be a good combination of a user-friendly design and reliable results. We really love the lightweight and compact size that fits into a nursing bra easily, plus the adjustable suction levels that stimulate milk flow nicely.
A few users seem to have had issues with breaking the product or it just not working for them, which is where the pricier price tag may become as issue, but there is a 60 day money back guarantee if you still want to give it a go.
The convenience definitely seems to be the main appeal, with many reviewers enjoying how they can pump while doing other things so, if you're looking for that, we would definitely recommend this electric breast pump. We're giving the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump a 4 star rating because of this.
How does the Pumply Breast Pump compare to rival products?
Compared to cheaper electric breast pumps, like Bellababy and CocoBear options, the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump seems to include more adjustability for comfort, plus it's more of a compact option with a lot less fuss. It also seems to focus on more discreet usage too, being more quiet on top of the portable design.
A lot of the pricier options of the market, from Elvie to Medela, actually offer very similar features, like a more quiet design and different modes, but possibly offer more suction power without compromising your comfort. We'd say that the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump isn't the best for power pumping but pricier picks may be.
Does the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump have different flange sizes?
When you purchase this electric breast pump, you'll be give the standard 24mm flange but Pumply does offer other sizes. They have a multipack that includes 17, 19, and 21mm flange sizes, plus you can also get a 27mm option that's sold separately.
How do you sterilise the Pumply Wearable Breast Pump parts?
Sterilising bottles and breast pump components is incredibly important for keeping your little one healthy, so having a convenient way to do so is what a lot of parents are looking for. That's another win for this breast pump, as you can clean and sterilise all the parts (except the motor and charging cable) fairly easily.
You just need to pop all the parts into a large bowl full of boiling water for 3-5 minutes to sterilise, and wash with soap regularly to keep them clean. Unfortunately, Pumply parts are not dishwasher-friendly.
