I’m in my 40’s now and have had 3 kids. There’s no denying that my body has bumps. I will admit that I haven’t done myself any favors. I’m not the healthiest eater and I don’t have a regular exercise routine. My natural metabolism has served me pretty well over the years but I am noticing that once I hit 40 my weight is slowly creeping up. I’m glad that there are products out there that allow me to feel more comfortable with my body and help make my clothes fit better.
One of my favorite products is the Original Yummie Tummie 3 Panel Shaping Tank. The hourglass shaped compression center panel hugs the tummy to smooth out the bumps. This is a problem area for me but this tank really helps give my tummy a smoother, flatter appearance.
The top and bottom panels are made of breathable cotton without any compression. This helps prevent rolling and won’t compress your breasts. The middle panel is where all the magic happens. It’s a 2-ply tricot with level 3 medium compression. It is comfortable, not smothering. I love the length of this tank that comes down over my hips and stays put. I wear it under everything from blouses to sweatshirts. While I don’t wear dresses often, it would be great under a dress as well! It has narrow straps so it would even work under a sleeveless top or dress.
I was excited to find out that Yummie Tummie also makes jeans! I picked the Skinny Jean in Two Year Fade to try out. It’s a mid-rise jean with a skinny leg. The fabric is stretchy yet designed to retain its shape and support your curves. The back pocket is strategically placed to make your butt look lifted.
I like the mid-rise of these jeans. Until recently, low-rise was my jam but my body is changing and now that just creates the undesirable “muffin top”. The mid-rise design comes up higher and smooths out that area. These jeans have a really skinny leg. The leg opening is 10″ according to the website’s measurements. I don’t have large legs at all but these jeans fit pretty tight to my legs. In my opinion these jeans run small. I’d order a size up next time.
The 9.5 oz stretch denim is the perfect weight for wear year round as it’s neither too heavy or too light. The front rise is 9.5″ with a short zipper for a modern look. The back has a 14″ rise to keep your booty covered so you can bend and move without having to yank your britches up. This is something I really appreciate in a pair of jeans!
These are just two great products that Yummie Tummie offers. You can find out more about these items and the rest of the Yummie Tummie products at www.yummie.com.
