Can I wear a regular corset after tummy tuck?

I had a full TT on March 24 and feeling pretty good. Still swelling obviously, but I am happy so far. I am wearing the binder provided by my doctor 24/7 as instructed. It is so bulky and I am concerned about co-workers noticing. Can I wear a corset during the work day that I bought from Kohl's Department Store? It is a waist corset and it very supportive, however, I am concerned about the bendable thin panels creating indentations and impeding proper healing.

Can a patient go and by a store brand compress post t/t? My skin is very sensative. I was wondering if it was okay, to go out and by my own body compress for my tummy tuck.
