How to pick the right flange size
If you experience any kind of pain when pumping, the wrong size shield is often the culprit. Women are not one size fits all, and it’s no different with breastshields! If you have no idea at all what size you are, then you can try to gauge the size by measuring your nipple circumference. Note – it is irrelevant what bra cup size you are – it is the width of your nipple when you are pumping that determines your flange size. Some women’s nipples change shape more than others do when pumping, so unfortunately the size of your nipples when not pumping is not always an indication of flange size.
Measuring your nipple
To measure your nipple, you need to measure straight across the widest part of the nipple (not including any areola). It is best to measure straight after breastfeeding or expressing. If measuring when your nipples are ‘at rest’, add an extra 2mm.
