How (and why) to measure your nipple

Not sure which size Milkdrop cushion is right for you? Measuring your nipple is super easy, and getting the right sized cushion will make sure your next pump is as comfy as possible.

Here's how to measure your nipple for fitting a Milkdrop cushion. 

Milkdrop cushions come in four sizes based on the width of your nipple at the base where it meets your areola: 
  • XS - up to 15mm, fits any pump flange size between 15mm and 30mm but fits your pump standard size (usually 24mm) best
  • S - 16 to 20mm, fits any pump flange size between 15mm and 30mm but fits your pump standard size (usually 24mm) best
    • M - 21 to 25mm, fits any pump flange size between 20mm and 30mm but fits your pump standard size (usually 24mm) best
    • L - 26 to 30mm, fits only pump flange sizes 32mm+

     

    Once you have your cushion, check that your nipple fits into the hole and can move freely. If you have pain or discomfort using the cushions, stop using them, and contact us.
