Yummie Tummie


“If you can’t breathe, it’s probably not good for ya!” Seems obvious, but when it comes to shapewear, many women still aren’t getting it right.

So who made this simple yet brilliant observation? Heather Thomson, the creator of the equally simple yet brilliant Yummie Tummie. After working with Puff Daddy on Sean John, and Beyoncé and Tina Knowles on House of Déreon, Heather now has her own burgeoning brand to manage. Yummie Tummie’s three-panel technology and patent-pending one-of-a-kind tricot fabric, has women all over looking and feeling slimmer and sexier.

The idea is to embrace your body, focus on your assets, and let Yummie Tummie do the nipping and tucking in a comfortable and flattering way. The garments are cut with a curve to allow for your natural shape and cancel out the muffin top.

What’s better is that Heather’s knowledge of ready-to-wear is also coming into play as Yummie Tummie expands into dresses and tops fitted with the same three-panel technology, so it’s all built right in.  There’s even slimming lingerie.

She’s almost making it too easy…What’s the incentive to hit the gym again?
