How to get a Yummie Tummie

What is a Yummie Tummie? It kind of sounds like something you could eat but, in fact, it’s something that allows you eat more while maintaining a sleek and smooth silhouette.

Think of it like Spanx, except it’s for your tummy, looks much nicer and is something you can wear for an entire day or every day if you so wish. They are already a massive hit in the States and now they’re here!

So what’s it all about? The ‘Yummie Tummie’ line is made with sleek yarns that do not cling and the exclusive dual fabric strategy provides a modern look and full coverage that stays in place.

And it does. I’ve tested these kinds of things before but most make you look like a granny and feel the complete opposite of sexy despite your sleek shape. Others look good but either roll up or down, stuff you in, wedge you in places you don’t need to be wedged and are just damn uncomfortable. That’s what’s different about the YT. Just like Ronseal Quick Dry and Wood Stain, the Yummie Tummie “does exactly what it says on the tin” and it looks pretty too.

I wore the tank top versions under T-shirts and silk tops and tucked into my jeans it eliminated any sign of the dreaded “muffin top”. They are amazing. Apparently the effects of wearing this are both physical and mental. “You will look better, feel more confident, and stand taller”. Basically it’s the lazy chick cheat to taking yoga or practicing Pilates.

Available in from Belle Blu in Clifden, Co Galway and Brown Thomas for €75.
