Chances are, if you’re shopping for baby products, you’ve likely heard of the Elvie breast pump. The Elvie is a hands-free wearable breast pump designed to be discreet enough to pump anywhere and everywhere.
Although the Elvie certainly has its benefits and a loyal following that sings its praises online, its $549.99 price tag for a double pump begs the question of whether the mommy-influencer favorite is really worth the investment.
What Is the Elvie Breast Pump?
Elvie is a hospital-grade, smart pump that prides itself on being the “world’s first silent wearable breast pump.” It fits inside a nursing bra without any restrictive wires, meaning you can go about your day without being confined to a space near an outlet.
Elvie’s simple design makes it easy to clean and assemble in minutes. It has built-in responsive technology that will automatically switch between modes and shut off when the bottle is full.
Elvie partners with medical suppliers, so you can save as much as 40% on some Elvie products through your health insurance. Products may even be fully covered or partially covered, depending on your insurance. So, check with your provider to find out.
These are some of the best Elvie dupes and hands-free pump alternatives that cost less than Elvie:
