There’s A Party in My Tummie (So Yummie, So Yummie)

tank-illustration-white-largeJust before Christmas, I was asked to take a look at and try out something from their extensive line of body shapers.

.. And with the numerous holiday parties and get-togethers and whatnots ahead (not to mention the extra “puffiness” still lingering from the Thanksgiving festivities, yuck), I leapt at the chance.

After all, taking into account the various “shapers”, “granny panties”, and other “fat-squish-er-mer-uppers” stuffing my lingerie drawer, I’m a huge fan of anything that makes me look… well… less.

Browsing through their adorable website, I quickly realized that Yummie Tummie products would not only excel at that “making me look less” business (patent pending dual fabric technology), but, due to the fact that the pieces (ranging from tanks to camis) are made to actually be seen and not shamefully hid beneath many layers of cloth, they would rate pretty high on the “fabulousness” factor as well.

Yes, you read that right:

The pieces are actually meant to be seen.

No, seriously… While the middle part of the tops are made of secret minimizing panels  that shape from the bust to the hips, the bust and bottom pieces are made of regular cotton.  Ingenious, I tell ‘ya.


I decided to start off with their basic black tank in the longer size ($62), thinking that it would be perfect for layering. And I couldn’t have been more right! Service through the website was excellent, and I received my order just in time for  pre-Christmas Eve shopping with my sister.

Layered beneath with a purple v-neck top, the Yummie Tummie appeared to be nothing more than a cute tank,  but I knew better! Everything was noticeably smoother through my mid-section… So much so that my sister even noted it (out loud. booyah.). There was no riding-up, bunching, or that annoying “rolling” that usually accompanies body shapers (even the really popular ones), and I was more than comfortable throughout the entire day of pushing my way through checkout line after checkout line.

Needless to say, I’ve basically lived in it ever since and am saving my pennies in order to buy everything else on their site.  (Yes, the price tag seems a little expensive at first… But you’ll quickly be thinking of Yummie Tummies as everyday wardrobe staples that you simply can’t be without. That kind of love more than justifies the cost, I assure you.)

So what are you waiting for…

Doesn’t your tummie deserve a little party of its own?

It’ll thank you for it!
