The shells have vented fronts that allow air to circulate around the nipple to also help healing. Soft, flexible silicone backs for maximum comfort. Contoured fronts for discreet appearance. Highly absorbent, washable foam inserts.

These are really an amazing product, and they absolutely saved me. I developed a fissure on one side, and breastfeeding was excruciating on that side. I finally bought these, thinking even if they helped a little, they'd be worth it. But I completely underestimated them! The first time I wore them, I noticed improvement. In less than three days wearing them (during the daytime only, in between feedings), the fissure healed completely, and feedings became painless again!

They are quite large and noticeable under clothing, and once healed, my nipples became too soft when I continued to wear them for the majority of the day. Now I wear them for an hour or two every day, just to give my nipples a rest, and they work perfectly for that, as well. I have noticed that if I start to leak and am wearing them, when I lean over, the excess milk will sometimes spill out the holes in the top - so keep an eye out for that, but, again, I wouldn't wear them in public, anyway.

Despite the minimal cons, I gave these five stars because the difference they made for me in such a short period of time was absolutely unbelievable. I would highly recommend these to any woman with even slightly sore nipples - they're incredible!

I was instructed to use these by my lactation consultation to help draw out my inverted nipples. They are uncomfortable to wear and look un-natural under your clothing. They pull out so much milk, I was having to change out the cotton in them every few hours, otherwise it would overflow and get onto my clothing. Not really worth it. Use a nipple shield instead.

    Comments about Medela SoftShells:

    These shields are very useful to protect sore nipples. It really hurts when baby squirms and grabs your sore chest so I purchased these shields and they work as described on the cover. There's a hole about an inch to inch and a half in diameter to place your nipple area and the dome is about an inch from the hole. If you put it in your bra then others would have to look closely to figure out something is there. It's a great useful product.

      Comments about Medela SoftShells:

      I used this toward the end of my hospital stay and shortly after my milk came in. It was great to have to let my sore nipples heal untouched by fabrics and anything else. After my milk came in I leaked into them so much that the foam was saturated (I didn't realize it) and I ended up spilling milk on the kitchen floor through the holes in the top when I bent over at one point- opps. Overall they were a good size, easy to use (just place inside a bra/ tank top)and clean, I was able to sleep on my stomach a few times (although I spilled onto the bed one night too) they're a little bulky if you're shy in public (but I doubt you'll be going out much in the short time you'll need these) otherwise they're a wonderful product that I highly recommend for anyone thinking of breastfeeding.

          Found this product helpful. My only complaint is that it isnt very discrete. Wish there was a way for it to be more sleek under clothing. They are comfortable enough that I forgot I was wearing them...

            These would be better if the hole in the inside ring was bigger. They just made me hurt more due to the pressure. Had to return.

            Comments about Medela SoftShells:

            I bought these because I needed help with sore nipples and have to be dressed when I leave the house. Since air drying helps with sore nipples these work great since air can still circulate but I can still wear clothes. My husband likes to make fun of my falsies when I put them on! If you really look you can see that maybe my breasts look a little funny but they are very discrete! My only complaint is that because of the way they sit I sometimes have a little discomfort from the back where it presses into my skin.
