For someone unfamiliar with Rumina Nursingwear, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Rumina Nursingwear is a hands-free pumping and nursing apparel company designing bras and tank tops to help support moms throughout their breastfeeding journey. All of Rumina’s products offer moms the ability to wear all day, hands-free pump, nurse, or pump and nurse at the same time. Rumina is completely different from every other pumping product on the market, in the fact that we don’t have any holes directly over the nipples. Moms can wear all of Rumina’s products confidently all day because Rumina uses it’s unique patented design to hold the breast pumps securely in place.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Rumina was inspired by a mom’s struggle to find a pumping product that would fit her body and needs. In 2008 Dawn Alva, Founder and CEO was a first-time mom, wanting to breastfeed but had difficulty keeping her breastfeeding relationship going when she had to go back to work full-time. There wasn’t any pumping apparel on the market that fit her body, her needs and had the ability to wear all day. So she put pen to paper and started to sketch out Rumina’s first design, the Pump&Nurse Tank. Launching on the market in 2011 Rumina’s Classic Coverage Pump&Nurse Tank was the foundation for all Rumina’s pumping products, in that it was meant to help make pumping and nursing Simple, Comfortable, and Convenient for all moms.
What are the most popular and newest products from Rumina Nursingwear?
Rumina’s most popular product is the Relaxed Pump&Nurse Bra. The Relaxed Bra is made with a soft jersey knit cotton that moms can comfortably wear in their 3rd trimester, into the birthing room, and transitions with them beautifully into motherhood. With a pull-down nursing style, the Relaxed Pump&Nurse Bra gives full skin-to-skin contact while nursing but also has Rumina’s ‘no-hole’ pumping design. Rumina’s newest product, that has been a huge sensation with moms since releasing in March of this year, is the Seamless Pump&Nurse Bra. The Seamless Bra has the look, feel, and comfort moms expect in a seamless bra but also offers extra features like removable soft pad insert for complete coverage and contouring, one-handed drop-down nursing cups for full skin-to-skin nursing, and hands-free pumping that gives superior comfort and support.
What sets Rumina Nursingwear apart in the nursing marketplace?
The main difference that sets Rumina apart from every other pumping garment on the market is our ‘no-hole’ design. Every other pumping garment on the market has a hole directly over the nipple which means trouble: a mom could show through the opening, there’s a seam rubbing on a sensitive part of the breast and a mom has to possibly move her breast around to line up with the hole. Rumina’s patented pumping designs, allows moms to position the flange to her unique body and nipple location for the best fit possible and no-holes means she can wear it all day, confidently. Rumina offers 5 different styles of bras and 2 different styles of tanks to give moms options to find the perfect bra for her breastfeeding journey.
