Compression vest is just a type of garment, a vest which is made of quite elastic material which tightly compresses the area which it covers.. Underarmor is a brand of clothing, and generally speaking is again quite a tight elastic garment - however if you're using this post-operation you'd be better to get a proper garment designed for the job, it'll also more than likely give you more effective compression.

under armor shirt is like a tight fit t-shirt that you wear during workouts, etcs. itstight but not as tight as a compression vest. if you got what ur wearing from ur doctor, i would assume its a compression vest. What are you wearign now? Do you have a picture?
