Mother Tuckers

Happy Monday Dear Readers!

Funny that I'm able to blog a lot when I don't have a yaya! :p Thank you go Gmail!

These past few days, I've been looking for a new binder to buy (online and in department stores). When I gave birth the first time, I used the one given to me by the hospital (I want to use it again but I can't find it!). I bought one from a sport's store but it was too hot and smells like rubber/plastic. I also bought one from So-en which I used (and will probably use it again) until about 5 or 6 months postpartum. My tummy got smaller but not to way it used to be before!

Now I'm looking to buy a new one, but the really good ones are SO EXPENSIVE! I'm too cheap! Haha!

Here's a list of choices:
Belly Bandit
- can be bought in Mothercare
- price around Php4,000
- made from Bamboo
*but my sister said it's tough on the skin and matigas.

- can be bought online (Babyland or
- price: Php3,850

Mamaway Extra Strength Bamboo Corset
- can be bought at Mamaway or visit their store
- price: Php2,675
from Mamaway
Persona Abdominal Binder
- can be bought at any Mercury Drug Store
- price around Php800-900
- cheapest of them all

I've been reading mixed reviews of each so I don't really know which one to get. I still have 5 or 6 weeks left to buy, but if anyone wants to gift me with this, I'd gladly accept! Haha


  1. Hey Cai!  I used the DALE binder. Yan ang binibigay (binebenta) ng MMC.  I got it for 1.5K you want one ba?  I'll ask my friend if may binebenta pa siya...

    Feeling ko or psychological lang haha! I was using a body shaping lotion tapus binder. Used it for 7 to 8 months cguro.  It didn't flatten my tummy pero it helped tucked in the gut when i wear fitted shirts haha!
