Hands-free breast pump supporting bra and system

A hands-free breast pump support bra and system allow simple and effective breast milk expression from a lactating woman's breasts without the need of additional support, such as straps, bands, posts and mounting elements to support the weight of breast pump apparatuses. The support bra independently and as part of the system is made of a material of sufficient elasticity and strength that when worn firmly and frictionally holds against each breast the funnel-like portion of a breast pump during the complete breast milk expression operation. Slits are strategically located in both nipple areas of the bra's cups through which the funnel-like portions of breast pumps engage the breasts. Because of the elastic property of the bra's fabric, the fabric around the slits securely and simultaneously hold against each breast in a hands-free manner a funnel portion with a conventional breast milk bottle filled with milk and attached

Bra with straps for matching clothing

The present invention provides a bra that can be worn under a tank top, tube top, tank dress, tube dress, halter top or any other article of minimal, revealing or skimpy clothing, which would normally expose bra straps. The bra has straps that resemble an article of clothing or match an article of clothing. In one aspect of the invention, a bra has straps that look like an article of clothing. The straps can be formed of a uniform material composition along the entire length, i.e. no portion made entirely of elastic. The straps could be wider or thinner than a normal bra strap. In another aspect of the invention, a bra has straps that match an article of clothing, i.e. have the same color or a color that plays off of the color of an article of clothing, and/or contains a design that is identical to or plays off of the color or design of an article of clothing. Also, the straps may look like an article of clothing as opposed to a conventional bra strap. In another aspect of the invention, a bra is sold as a unit with an article of clothing, and the straps of the bra match the article of clothing. Again, the bra strap may look like an article of clothing as opposed to a conventional bra strap. In another aspect of the invention, a bra is provided with detachable bra straps. Two or more sets of bra straps may be provided which bra straps can be interchanged to match an article of clothing. Articles of clothing can be sold with matching straps, which can be interconnected with the body of the bra so the straps match the article of clothing.

Push-in underwire bra

A lightweight, substantially unpadded, comfortable, push-in underwire bra has, when worn by a female wearer, a front including a pair of cups. Each cup defines upper inner and outer portions, lower inner and outer portions, a top and a bottom, and is configured and dimensioned to hold substantially one breast of a female wearer. Each cup defines an underwire-receiving channel extending downwardly from the cup upper outer portion and then inwardly across the cup bottom to the cup lower inner portion where the channel terminates. A single underwire-free channel extension connects the channels of the cups only at the lower inner portions thereof, the cups being connected at the front only by the channel extension, thereby to provide a deeply plunging cleavage and enable substantial independent motion of the cups relative to one another. For each cup, a thin, arcuate underwire is disposed in the channel and biases the cup upper outer portion inwardly. Thus, the underwires bias the cup upper outer portions inwardly to provide push-in cleavage on the wearer's breasts. Straps are secured to the front for releasably supporting it on a female wearer with the breasts of the female wearer substantially within the cups.

Sports bra with storage pouch

A sports bra has a pair of cups joined by a cleavage portion between the proximate edges of the cups and a back strap portion between the distal edges of the cups. The cups and cleavage portion are made of cloth having substantially universal elasticity so as to provide adequate support. A rectangular panel made of cloth having substantially universal elasticity is fastened along its bottom and side edges to an inside wall of the cleavage portion of the bra to form a storage pouch of approximately credit card dimensions. A plurality of short hook and loop segments extending substantially fully across the upper inside edge of the panel with mating segments of hook and loop material oppositely fixed along the inside wall of the cleavage portion of the bra allows the pouch to be completely sealed while still affording the desired universal elasticity. Preferably, the panel is made of back-to-back pieces of cloth with the inner one being non-absorbent and the cleavage portion is also made of back-to-back pieces of cloth with the inner one being non-absorbent so as to allow the sports bra to be fully absorbent along its body contact surfaces and yet provide a no-absorbent storage pouch to protect its contents. A flat member may be disposed between the panel cloths to stiffen the storage pouch.
