Thanks so much for posting that! I was about to ask a question about why I can never get much pumping even though I have an over supply. Looking at your third link, I think I need a small. That's surprising because I'm a 36DD now, but part of my areola is being pulled into the pump. I just ordered more shields in size small and I can't wait to see if it works!

Shield sizes make a big difference. I'm small chested and even with a full milk supply, I never got bigger than a B cup. still had to try out the different sizes and nursed with a shield for a long time because I got a better latch that way.
