After baby’s born, there’s a lot of extra stuff hanging out in your middle — you know what I’m talking about new mama. And shape wear is your best friend if you’re invited to a wedding or some other event where you’re expected to squeeze into something you don’t feel quite ready to squeeze into just yet.

That’s why the new Mother Tucker (yes, that’s the real name) Nursing Tank by Belly Bandit is pretty smart. It’s both shape wear and nursing tank combined, so you don’t need to mess around with a bunch of different undergarments. (Because you know breastfeeding mamas have to keep feeding baby — no matter what else is going on — so you live in nursing bras.)

Note that the Belly Bandit also claims to help flatten your tummy and get rid of your muffin top forever. Now, I haven’t tested that, so I don’t know for sure (and I’m always skeptical of those types of claims). But celebs like Kourtney Kardashian, Julie Bowen, Minnie Driver, Melissa Joan Hart and Christina Applegate swear Belly Bandit products have helped them get their bodies back post-baby. So hey. You never know.

The Mother Tucker Nursing Tank is $80 at

Did you use shape wear or a belly binder after baby was born?
