Where do I begin??
For starters, I ordered the 3 pk. starter set from the actual website. For under $30 you receive a pair of ALL THREE sizes! This was the perfect option for me because I really wasn't sure which size I would need. I actually called a local boutique to see if they could help me decide on a size just by looking at my breasts. They are, after all, a PREGNANCY specialty boutique. They offered their assistance for a $30 fee! YIKES! I figured since I could simply order ALL THREE sizes for the same price as their "fitting consultation" I may as well do that.
Good Deal: check

After conversing with the owner of the company Jon, via email, he sent my order out right away. Seriously...I received these lifesavers, or breastfriends ;p THE NEXT DAY!!!!! Pretty sure that's NEVER happened before. The shipping was something like $5.60 so I certainly didn't pay for the speedy overnight service that I received.
Good Customer Service: check CHECK

I nursed exclusively from my left breast last night. Our son sleeps with us, and I often opt to sideline feed him so that I may fall back to sleep. I ended up "sidelining" him from the SAME breast ALL night! Needless to say I was ENGORGED this morning around 5am when I got up to test my new pumpin' pals. I have an average frame (size 8-10); however, I am very large busted (34G pre pregnancy and currently measuring 34L). I didn't even know Ls existed! Anyway..after boiling these bad boys as directed for about 8min or so, it was time to put them to the test. I started with the XL. Right away, I noticed a HUGE improvement in breast comfort. I read some reviews mentioning an issue with suctioning; however, such was not the case for me. My sister gifted me the Simple Wishes Hands Free Bra at my baby shower, and it works like a charm (even with the XL flange). The pumpin' pal never fell off or lost suction during my session; I tend to pump for 35 plus min. each time. I actually found myself switching to the Large halfway through this morning. I think I was just excited to test the difference between the two. I will say, the Large produced more milk at a faster rate; however, this may have been due to the fact that my milk was already flowing. I will start with the large tomorrow and update if a big difference occurs.
As far as the angled flange design is concerned, WHAT A RELIEF!!!! It makes all the difference in the world being able to RELAX while pumping. I was able to get 5oz in this first session from the ONE boob. Perhaps even more importantly, my neck and back weren't aching during and afterwards. Until I found these super shields, I wasn't sure how I was going to be able to continue to breast feed my son (only 7weeks old at the moment) for the desired year or two. Now, I feel this will be easily attainable.
Good Product: check check check (one for each size!)

In writing this review, I hope to help women like myself, find some relief. It is so special to be able to breastfeed. I truly believe it is a gift, one that I may now enjoy pain FREE.

Overall, I am completely satisfied with my purchase. I wish I had known about these earlier,

I was using the medela flanges for a month before a friend introduced me to pumpin pals. I used the handsfree bra with the medela flanges but found that i still had to lean forward for it to drain out. My shoulders and back were in so much pain. I tried these and it's great! I can situp right and it naturally flows down into the bottle. If you expect to NOT hold the flanges at all, you are wrong in either case. I found to get the right amount of suction in both cases I still had to lightly hold on to them, even with the handsfree bra. it's a big difference though because if you are holding them in hard, you are at risk for wrist injury.

I'm, unfortunately, an exclusive pumper so I consider myself an expert on all things pumping, much to my dismay! Well, I LOVE these flanges. The angle has allowed me to lounge back on the couch, in a laid back position in bed, and even in the car without drenching my simple wishes bra. I've even fallen asleep while pumping a couple times, so I guess I was fairly comfy! They also feel a lot softer to me than the regular medela flanges, but i use both as it's helpful to have extra pairs instead of cleaning all the time! Anyhow, not sure I could've made it without these.

I did a lot of research before purchasing these and I am so glad I did! They were comfortable and they were the perfect size for me!

Really, I have no idea how you could pump on any regular basis without these. I exclusively pumped for my first child and used these and now with kiddo number two I am using them, although much less frequently, again. I did buy an extra set because I was tired of washing them all the time. They do truly enable you to relax while pumping--no more leaning forward. They make the pump seem smoother and not as jarring of your sensitive parts and the milk just seems to come out faster on a lower pump setting. Get them--you wont regret it!

I bought these before I had my baby because I had heard rave reviews. This has been my first time pumping and I wanted to be prepared. I use the Medela pump in style for 4 months and I prefer the Medela flange, they just seem to fit and suction on more efficiently. These flanges fit the medela parts exactly. I do not notice a difference in milk production between the two, so that is good. I just dont think having the angle on the flange made pumping any more efficient or comfortable for me, so I really didn't need these

I switched to these because I found that Medela's 27's were too big but the 24's were too small. These (in size medium) are in between the two sizes. I never noticed that I had to lean forward with medela's standard issue ones, but I had no problems adjusting to the angle of these. They really don't seem all that different from Medelas, frankly, other than the sizing. I think it is good for people to have other options, though.

These are so much more comfortable than the medela flanges! The fit is better and just more comfortable on the breast/ nipple. Additionally since they are angled I don't have to slouch while I'm pumping! My back no longer hurts due to poor posture with pumping! Thanks!

For me, I didn't notice any difference between these and the medela flanges that came with my pump. I experienced pain with both brands so I wish I hadn't spent the extra money for these. They do the job, but aren't worth spending money on in my opinion.

My friend recommended these to me and let me try them out. They are amazing!! So much more comfort than the typical flanges and I think they offer the ability to make more milk as well. If you pump daily, these are a must have.
