If you’re like me, you ate way too many carbs and sweets during the Christmas holiday. And with New Year’s fast approaching, there’s still plenty of temptation to eat, drink and be merry. So here’s the conflict. You want to enjoy the rest of the holiday season and still look fabulous. I’ve discovered the solution — Yummie Tummie shapewear.  

The Yummie Tummie Story

Created by fashion designer and celebrity stylist Heather Thomson — the creative force behind P. Diddy’s Sean John line, Beyoncé’s fashion lines, and Jennifer Lopez’s Sweetface brand — Yummie Tummie gives a smoother appearance and is more comfortable than Spanx or a traditional girdle.  When Thomson became frustrated with the existing shapewear options available to her and her clients – all of which compressed the bust, didn’t stay in place, and were horribly uncomfortable and unflattering – she created an innovative way to fight the battle of the tummy bulge.  

How It Works

Yummie Tummie tank tops and t-shirts are made with a patent-pending dual fabric technology, and its extra bonus comes from its same-tone, firm control midsection panel, which smoothes and shapes your stomach and hips, erasing pounds from your frame, and concealing any lumps and bumps. Because that panel is made with a microfiber fabric that actually wicks moisture away, you will always feel cool and comfortable.  And since they’re made with sleek, non-cling yarns, Yummie Tummie tanks and t-shirts never roll or ride up. 

In addition to making you look 5 lbs. slimmer, the body contouring tops provide core stability, a benefit also derived from taking a yoga or Pilates class. No wonder celebs including Tyra Banks, Kimora Lee Simmons, and Jennifer Lopez love their Yummie Tummies.

The Hot Mama Test

I received a long-sleeved black t-shirt ($82) and a white tank top ($62). I wore the white tank around all day today and, unlike a girdle, it didn’t feel constricting.  I didn’t even have to wear a bra because it fits so snugly.  My tummy felt flatter and to my surprise the tank absorbed any moisture.  I plan to wear Yummie Tummie the next time I get dressed up and need extra support. So it gets the Hot Mama thumbs up!
