Breast shields play a key role in pumping comfort and efficiency. That’s why Medela incorporated the new Flex™ technology that’s shaped around you with the PersonalFit Flex™ Breast Shields. Its unique oval shape can be rotated 360°, allowing you to adjust the breast shield to find the most comfortable pumping position for you.
It’s available in 4 different sizes; choose the right size for maximum comfort and pumping efficiency.
The rim of the breast shield is made with a soft, natural-feeling material that lays smoothly on the breast for comfort.

The PersonalFit Flex Breast Shields should be washed and sanitized prior to first use. They should continue to be washed after each use and sanitized once daily.

How does the PersonalFit Flex™ Breast Shield yield more milk vs the traditional, 90 degree shields?
The new 105° opening angle and oval shape of the PersonalFit Flex breast shields allows more flexibility for mom to position the shield in different ways while she pumps, based on what’s comfortable for her. When let-down occurs, mom’s milk ducts get bigger – the new shape and angle allows the milk to flow more freely. Changing the opening angle of the flange from 90 degrees to 105 degrees made a difference; it better matched the contour of the breast and reduced compression of the milk ducts, which allows milk to flow more freely through them. This change resulted in increased volume of milk expressed during a pump session - 11.8 percent more overall on average. The 11.8 percent is the average but every mom’s personal experience will differ.
