All great accomplishments begin with the right fundamentals. That's why we are always looking for new foundation garments to put the right curves in all the right places. We were recently introduced to Heather Thomson who has been a creative force for two of the most shapely pop-stars turn fashion-stars, Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce Knowles. Her Yummie Tummie shapeware is the perfect foundation for your summer wardrobe.
Heather's Yummie Tummie tanks change the overall look of an outfit by adding a little tuck and pinch here and here. As expected, the snug middle panel smooths away muffin spillage but what we didn't expect is that our overall silhouette became more shapely. Unlike most shapeware these garments have room for your hips so you look tucked in all the right places but there's also room for your hips to allow shape where it belongs.
After trying a few styles, we settled on the Undercover Tank, which can be worn alone without looking like an undergarment. We also like how this tank is extra long and can be tucked into a low riser jean and paired with a variety of blazers to create a chic but casual outfit.
The Undercover retails for $68 and starts at XS and runs into 3X. We could't find the tank for less money but Yummie Tummie is sold at all of our favorite department stores and is the perfect item to pick up at a friends & family sale when you can save between 20% to 25% off.
If you order online go a size smaller than you think because the tighter the better. Also, keep your bra on. The Yummie Tummie tank has a shelf bra but does nothing for adding shape or form to your bosom. Don't forget about doing your crunches because the true foundation of great fashion comes from health and fitness.
