Why PersonalFit™ PLUS Breast Shield
  • More milk

  • More comfort

  • Optimal fit with range of sizes

PersonalFit™ PLUS breast shields are the new standard in breast shield design. They are based on Medela’s ground-breaking research and clinically proven benefits resulting from more than 1,000 pumping sessions. We used 3D scans of lactating breasts with modelling software to find the best angle for optimal fit. The result is a new 105° opening angle improve its fit to support gentle pumping3.

A research team, coordinated by Medela Research Associate Dr. Danielle Prime assessed the performance of the 105° breast shield. The findings showed the PersonalFit™ PLUS breast shields provided more milk and more comfort1,2.

On the subject of fit, it is important that mothers measure their nipple diameter. This is because the PersonalFit™ PLUS breast shield comes in a range of tunnel sizes to help optimise nipple fit. Our breast shield sizing guide for mothers explains how to do this.

The PersonalFit™ PLUS Breast Shield is oval. Does this mean it should be positioned a certain way to be most effective?

No, the oval shape can be rotated 360o for whatever position is most comfortable.
