Blogiversary Celebration – Easy Expression Hands-Free Pumping Bras – CLOSED

Today’s Blogiversary Celebration features Easy Expression Products – the original hands-free pumping bra! Easy Expression Products was founded in 1998 by Gretchen Penny. At that time, she was a new mother getting ready to return back to work after her maternity leave and she found pumping tedious and was looking for something to make it easier. Her idea for Easy Expression Products was born! In 1999 she received her first patent for the Halter design of her hands-free pumping bras and in 2002 she introduced the Bustier style, which quickly became her best-seller. Just like a lot of momtrepreneurs, Gretchen worked out of her home when she started her business. In 2007, her business out-grew her home and she opened an office outside of her home. She is proud to say that all of her products are manufactured in the USA – locally in Houston TX, just a few short blocks from where she lives!

I have been carrying the Easy Expression Bustier and Halter in my boutique since I opened in 2007. A friend of mine exclusively pumped for her baby when my son was little and she had used one. I love them! The styles are great.

Easy Expression Bustier
The bustier is the most popular because it is the easiest to use. It has a zipper up the front so you just put it around you and your bra and zip it up, insert your breast flanges from your pump (it works with most if not all pumps!) and you are ready to pump – completely hands free! This is one of our most popular styles of hands-free pumping bra. Just last month, Easy Expression Products introduced a new black colored bustier which is fabulous! And they have more colors coming in the coming months!

Easy Expression Halter
The halter is great for a few reasons. Firstly, it is very inexpensive, so anyone can afford it. And if you have a larger bust, it is great because it has a halter that goes around your neck and gives added support to hold up those heavy, milk-laden breasts! The only down-side to the halter is that it has to be put on over your head (no zipper) so it is a little bit less convenient. But for moms on a budget or those who need the added support, it is wonderful!!

I pumped and worked until my son was 15 months old and having a hands-free pumping devise was KEY to my success. My son never had to be supplemented and I was able to keep my supply up despite working long hours and traveling for business. I couldn’t have done it without hands-free pumping. If you are a working mom – or even if you just pump a lot, be sure to take a look at my Pumping Tips Article for great pumping and working tips. It also has lots of tips for increasing milk supply – so even if you aren’t pumping at work, take a few minutes to read it over anyway.
