Ok, bloggers, I just spent a really long time laughing hysterically while trying to take a picture of my chest. The entire world is talking about the Yummie Tummie tank top but I could not find one real review of it so I thought I'd do you a favor and get one and review it for real.
The Yummie Tummie site says:
Your Yummie Tummie will visibly slim, shape and smooth you using unsurpassed design integrity, workmanship and quality standards.
The Yummie Tummie tank top looks like a normal tank top on the top and bottom but the center part is a microfiber panel that is supposed to smooth your rolly poly bits. This idea is really good because you can layer the tank under tees or tops and nobody will know you are wearing a girdle that isn't really a girdle. I got the Strappy T tank* and it is very comfortable and it does smooth the lumps and bumps and is way more comfortable than Spanx. This is definitely good. I wouldn't say it will make you appear thin if you are fat but it does smooth things out so your clothes fit a little better.
My only problem with the Yummie Tummie is the seam where the microfiber meets the normal fabric of the tank at the chest. If you are an A or B cup, this might not be a problem. I am an E and the seam is right in an annoying place and is visible! I drew a gray line on the photo where the seam is. I think the seam should be 2 inches lower and this would be PERFECT! The effects of the Yummie Tummie were not "dramatic" but worth it. I am wearing it. I will, of course, ask everyone I see in the next few days to look at my chest and see if they see the seam. Good times ahead!
UPDATE: It's really hard to get the Yummie Tummie off without dislocating your shoulder or your hip, depending on how you try. Still, not as hard as getting the Spanx version off.
*The Strappy T costs about the same as a tank of gas for a 2005 Honda Accord.
