Developed in collaboration with a lactation consultant, this hands-free pumping bra was meticulously designed for parents on the go who need to be able to pump, nurse and stay active. Not only does the smooth, soft and stretchy OEKO-TEX certified fabric feel incredible to wear, but it’s also supportive enough to hold pumping parts and milk.

FAQ

How to wear it in Stage 1-2 (0-6 months): 

During the first 6 months of breastfeeding, we recommend you loosen the Do Anything Bra when you’re not pumping so it offers no lifting or acute points of compression.

  • When pumping: Tighten the straps and the hook & eye in the back to tighten the bra and maximize the pump parts suction with your breast
  • When done pumping: Loosen the straps as much as possible and loosen the hook & eye in the back so that the bra no longer offers any compression or lift.
  • If for some reason you are prone to overproduction and engorgement and you happen to get a clogged duct (even while doing all of this), we’d recommend that you reduce all-day wear until you reach the 6-month threshold.

How to insert your flanges:  

Option 1: placing your fingers closest to the clasp, pull the Do Anything Bra away from your body and slide the flange in through the slits in the front of the bra. Then, position over your nipple.

Option 2 (for silicone or extra-large flanges): unclip the nursing clip and insert the flange through the backdoor "bottoms first". Then position over your nipple.

Best pumping pro-tip: Do breast compressions to maximize your time and milk output while you pump. While pumping, gently compress for 10-15 seconds, rotate your hands and gently compress again.

We recommend:  

If you’re using nipple creams, we encourage you to use breast pads to protect your bra from oil stains. Oil based products, such as nipple creams and even breast milk have the potential to seep into clothing. We carry our breast pads in a 4-pack and as a 6-pack if you want to stock up.

How to choose a bra that optimizes your breast health.

Months 0-3 Postpartum

In Stage 1, you will likely experience major fluctuations as your body adapts to increasing levels of milk production. This is when breasts are most likely to get engorged and the associated risks of clogged ducts and mastitis is highest.

WE RECOMMEND

All-day and sleeping:
No bra or a super stretchy, non-compressive bra, like The Everything Bra or The Effortless Bra

For pumping or more support:
You can wear a more structured bra—like The So Easy Bra, The Back At It Bra, or The Do Anything Bra—for 3 hours or less. In Stage 1 you’re at greater risk for complications like plugged ducts and mastitis, which is why we recommend wearing more compressive bras – like pump bras – for only a few hours. The idea is that you want to avoid becoming engorged, or even full of milk, while wearing a compressive bra. In Stage 1, that happens more frequently, hence the 3-hour limit for wearing compressive bras during this period.

Months 3-6 Postpartum

In Stage 2, your breasts are still adjusting to lactation, but fluctuations are less extreme. This means the frequency of engorgement decreases so you can introduce a bit of support in your all-day bra.

WE RECOMMEND

All-day:
You can introduce more shape and support as long as it still stretches with fluctuations — like The So Easy Bra or Back At It Bra.

For sleeping:
If you are lactating, you should always go back to a Stage 1 Bra — like The Everything Bra or The Effortless Bra — or no bra at night when breasts are most full.

For pumping or more support:
You can wear a more structured bra — like The Do Anything Bra — for 4 hours or less. In Stage 2 you’re still at increased risk for complications like plugged ducts and mastitis, so we recommend wearing more compressive bras – like pump bras – for several hours at most. The idea is that you want to avoid becoming engorged, or even full of milk, while wearing a compressive bra. In Stage 2 that happens more frequently, hence the 4-hour limit for wearing compressive bras during this period.

Months 6+ Postpartum

In Stage 3, your breasts have adjusted more and fluctuate less. The fat content of your milk also increases and the rate of your baby's growth slows, so feeding may be less frequent. With that, the risk of complications is much lower (but not zero), so it's safe to wear a bra with more support during the day.

WE RECOMMEND

All-day:
You can wear a more structured bra — like The Do Anything Bra — as long as you pump or nurse every 3-4 hours to avoid engorgement.

For sleeping:
If you are lactating, you should always go back to a Stage 1 bra — like The Everything Bra or The Effortless Bra — or no bra at night when breasts are most full.

Pre-Lactation

While pregnant, the bra you wear comes down to comfort. Only once you are lactating does your bra impact breast health. Until birth, wear what feels good.

Bodily Tip: During pregnancy, the balance of support and stretch in our Stage 2 bra — The So Easy Bra — is an ideal combination to maximize comfort through your bodily changes.

Did You Know?

Most common breastfeeding issues are linked to the bras we wear. But wearing a bra that you like shouldn't expose you to features that can negatively impact milk supply, or potentially increase risk of clogged ducts and mastitis. That's why we created a system for selecting bras that makes it easy to optimize for breast health (check out The Stages of Breastfeeding for choosing a nursing bra that's right for you), and designed all of our bras together with a lactation consultant.
