Products I Love: Rumina Seamless Pump and Nurse bra

April 14, 2017 2 Comments


Okay mamas, Lets get real, finding a comfortable and supportive nursing bra is nearly impossible. Add to that being large chested and plus size, you can seriously just forget about it. Sure, there are some options, but be prepared to spend upwards of $70-90. I don’t know about you guys, but that is just not in my budget.
I already loved Rumina’s pump and nurse bra, so when I had an opportunity to try they seamless version, I jumped on it.

You guys, this bra is seriously SO comfortable. The fabric is so soft and has just enough stretch. But not so much that the girls are sagging by the end of the day. It really is very supportive and feels like a “real” bra. I was worried that it might roll up at the bottom. That’s a struggle all my plus size mamas know too well, but I was very pleasantly surprised that it pretty well stayed where I put it. And it retails for just $38-42, a much more realistic price for someone like me.
Here is the size guide, they truly have something for everyone. For reference, I wear a 44/46 DDD and the 3XL fits me perfectly.

It also has a traditional clap style closure in the back, which allows for adjustment in sizing as you go from the end of pregnancy, to those super full early weeks, and after your supply has regulated.
A new feature in this bra, is padding in the cups. Its not so much that it gives you a push up, but enough for some nipple coverage. I always hate feeling like i’m showing a little extra, even through a bra or tank, right after I nurse or pump. The padding completely takes care of that anxiety. It also helps the bra to look much smoother under tshirts, which is a major plus.
One of my favorite features about Rumina’s bras and tanks, is that you can nurse AND pump in them. Yep, that means no more zip on holster style top or fiddling with some old sports bra you cut holes in (come on, we’ve all done it).
It’s also really handy if you want to pump while your baby nurses. That comes in so handy if you are like me, and don’t have a ton of “extra” time to pump or say for a mom trying to work on her supply, and needing the extra stimulation. Its also great for moms that exclusively pump (which is STILL breastfeeding, by the way), because it allows you to pump and hold or feed your baby.
I use it to pump and work, and love that I can get stuff done while I am pumping. It also helps with my output, because I stay distracted with other things, rather than focus and obsess over that darn milk I’m expressing.

I found that after putting my breast-shields in the flaps made to hold them, if I tightened my straps or clipped the bra back up, I got a little more support as I pumped.

The one and only issue I had with this bra, is that the removable padding tends to roll when I pull the flap down to nurse. But I just fix it the times it does it, its not a huge deal and definitely not anything that would make me want to ditch the bra all together. If it really bothered you, you could easily just take it out
I have been wearing this bra for a couple weeks now, and it is seriously love. I will be ordering more and may even continue to wear them when I am done nursing.
I also have to give a shout out to the absolutely amazing women that run Rumina. They are moms, just like us, so they know whats up. That’s why they have designed such a perfect bra. Their customer service skills are great as well, so don’t be afraid to contact them if you run into any problems with their products. Tell them I sent you, and they’ll take extra good care of you!
Don’t wait one more second! You can buy yours here

    I so needed this post about one year ago! I just started weaning my son but the battle to find a good nursing bra was awful. I will need to keep this in mind for next time!

  • 5 ways to make pumping easier June 28, 2017 at 10:30 pm

    […] By doing “Hands On” pumping, you can help encourage more expression. Before you start pumping, with clean, warm hands, do some gentle breast massage. This step lets your body know its time to get that milk flowing, kind of “primes” the milk ducts. After you are hooked up and  have started pumping, whenever your letdown or expression starts to slow, you can do some gentle compression, to keep the flow going a little bit longer. A good hands free pumping bra makes this a lot easier, I personally love Rumina’s Nurse and pump bras. You can read my review of their newest bra here […]

    • When I picked "Be Brave" as my word for this year, I didn't realize I was asking the universe for an actual challenge. (And based on what I've gathered from many friends, I wasn't alone)  But, as the year comes to a close, I feel like I met my goal. And while there were some wonderful moments of this year, like starting a new job, growing my breastfeeding support group, and becoming an aunty twice more. But my anxiety was worse than it's ever been (admitting that isn't fun) and watching my mother in law battle brain cancer and Grandpa fight through a massive heart attack, has been hard. Needless to say, I'm ready for a new start with these little humans and their daddy.  See ya later 2018 👋

2019, please be kind to us 🙏

    • My top 9 of 2018 was an honest look at Motherhood. This was the year I found my voice, took opportunities outside of my comfort zone, and truly met my goal of being brave. I'm so glad and grateful you are all following along. Excited to see what 2019 has in store. Happy New Year!

    • I have been pretty open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. It's not fun or easy, and I often wish it wasn't part of my story, but it is. And through sharing, I can only hope that even one of you feels less alone. If you need a little extra support, I share daily affirmations in my stories every morning, I hope you'll follow along. 
Here's to today being a good day, even in it's imperfections ❤️ #musingsonmotherhood #thisismotherhood #this_is_postpartum #dailyaffirmations

    • Back to reality today and totally experiencing a holiday "hangover" We will be cleaning out and choosing toys and clothes to donate, since the kids got new stuff for Christmas. It's important to me that my kids be involved in this process, as it is their stuff and I want them to learn the value of service. Not taking our decorations down yet, I'm not ready to let the twinkle lights go ✨✨ #musingsonmotherhood #lighttheworld
    • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. May your heart and home be full of love ❤️🎄
