Yummie for my Tummie

No matter how much I exercise (ok I'm not really doing it that much), my middle seems to be the bane of my existence.  I haven't had kids, but those terrible surgeries (myomectomy and hysterectomy) left my once flat stomach looking like a fallen souffle.  UGH.  Occasionally, I think about a tummy tuck and lipo, but then I think about clothes and a remodeling my home (bathroom, kitchen, etc.)...a dream deferred.  So, instead I just buy Spanx and clothes that accentuate the positive.  However, I'm always on the lookout for something to help with my challenge area, especially since I haven't gotten to the gym as much as I would like or started martial arts yet...enter Yummie Tummie.  

They have tanks, t-shirts (long and short) and slips which have a secret midsection panel that smoothes and shapes your middle, eliminating approximately five pounds off your appearance.  They even have a built in shelf bra (I'm wondering if the shelf is big enough for what I'm carrying but that is a different story).  That is just what the doctor ordered!  Now I only need to loose 5 pounds instead of 10!  

Disclaimer: I haven't purchased one yet because they are kind of pricey ($62-$82 for t-shirts up to $132 for slips), but I do intend to get one.  I'll let you know how it works out when I do.  

Has anyone tried Yummie Tummie yet?  Do you have any other slimming apparel to recommend?


  1. Hi Tami! My middle is my 'issue' too! It's so hard to wear jeans with a tee over because I get that damn muffin. So yesterday I tried on different Spanx solutions. The tops weren't tight enough to hold my bulge in; the bottoms were too low in the waist to press down the whole muffin and one model had thick thigh shaping, which, who wants to wear THAT under jeans? The quest goes on...I had a company offer to send me control garments, will let you know. But I will check out your recommendation too and let you know. The quest goes on!

  2. I have used spanx and the target version and love the target verision of the higher power..it goes from breastbone to thighs! and better than the SPANX...sucks my two kids and surgery leftovers right in!

  3. ouch! at those prices the surgery might be cheaper! at least you have something to blame your muffin on - i have no such excuse...
