The Belly Bandit and the Mother Tucker are very different products. The Belly Bandit is for intense post pregnancy compression, built specifically to cater to a post pregnant woman and her needs. The Mother Tucker collection is a fabulous collection of every day compression garments! Yes, can be worn with the Belly Bandit or alone, but they do not work like the Belly Bandits. We do advise the Mother Tucker tanks as the next phase after your done with your Belly Bandit.
