Got small size after reading reviews, but felt extra small would have been better after using the small. It works as advertised, but the breast shields feel loose when attached. Does not give a secure feeling, although shields have never fallen out and milk has never spilled. It is also awkward that the top of the bustier feels looser than the bottom giving the sensation that it could tip over or open up. Idea is great, but I got a much better and much more comfortable result by taking an old sports bra, cutting out nipple holes and securing the breast shields under the bra. It is extremely expensive for what it is, I could have bought 3 sports bras and converted them with a pair of scissors and gotten a better result for the same price! So I if I had the chance to do it over, I would not buy it; and therefore, cannot recommend it.
Ps. A word of advice: if you want to use a sports bra, the tighter the hole you make for the breast shield spouts the better. And for longer use you can sew around the hole to stop it from expanding with numerous uses.
I pumped for 11 days before getting the hands-free bra. I work from home (luckily) and my baby won't nurse, so I have to pump ALL the milk she drinks. I was "wasting" a lot of time sitting and pumping. Holding the cups to my breast was also a big hassle. This hands-free bra cup holder is great - A MUST HAVE if you pump a lot. It frees up my hands to do other things, like typing this review online (yes, I'm pumping right now) or having a cup of coffee. I don't feel like my time pumping is a waste of time anymore. This was pretty critical to my being productive in my job during the day. I wear a 38-B and I bought a size Medium. It's tight at the bottom, but I think the Large would not have stayed on well enough.
The only change I would make, which I HIGHLY recommend they do, is to add bra straps to make it feel more secure.
Along with freeing up my hands, I feel less "exposed" while pumping. Even sitting home along doing it, I felt a bit exposed (neurotic, I know!).
If you will be pumping, you really should get this. Color won't matter since you wont' be wearing it as a real bra. Babies-R-Us carries them in the store if you don't like to order stuff online.

This bra isn't bad but I ended up returning it because I thought that it would get messy. It was hard to take the bra off without getting milk onto the bra. The material is soft and thick and overall the bra is good quality. The packaging is very simple and I think this item is a bit overpriced. Also, there is not enough support once the bottle gets filled with milk. There's no option to add in straps to help support the bottles. I ended up purchasing the Simple Wishes Breast Pump Bustier instead which I like a lot better. The Simple Wishes Breast Pump Bustier is adjustable which is great because your bra size will change as you change.
The Easy Expression Bustier by Medela makes hands-free pumping easy becaause now you have the freedom to do other things while pumping. The bustier is compatible with most electric breastpumps. It is also easy to wash and easy to wear because of its cotton and spandex fabric blend.
