Yummie began with the idea that women deserve to be comfortable, look good, and feel confident—every day. That’s what founder Heather Thomson had in mind when she created the Original 3-Panel Tank in 2008. Designed to smooth and shape you, Heather wanted women to embrace their curves and be comfortable.
The Idea Behind Yummie
The Tank That Started it All
The Original Yummie Tummie 3-Panel Tank was the first shaping product of its kind—one that focused on the midsection, smoothing from the top down. With simple cotton panels at the top and bottom and a shaping midsection, it looks like a regular everyday tank top. This method of subtle shaping transformed the shapewear industry. Until then, shaping products were typically shapewear bottoms—briefs, thigh shapers, and the like—nothing dedicated to giving women a flatter, smoother middle. And nothing that looked like a regular layering piece. But the Original Yummie Tummie 3-Panel Tank changed all that. Its design was considered revolutionary and has since earned 13 patents.
Oprah's Favorite Things
We have Oprah to thank for introducing Yummie to the world. The Original Yummie Tummie 3-Panel Tank was chosen as one of Oprah’s favorite things and Yummie, the brand, was born. Today, Yummie is an entire collection of modern, everyday, form-flattering shapewear, leggings, and intimates.
The Innovative Design Behind Looking Good
Yummie is all about comfort. Our design team works extensively with fabric mills to develop innovative fabrics. Of course, besides innovative, they have to be deliciously soft and luxurious, too. Every garment goes through an extensive engineering process for fit, as well as extensive wear testing. If it doesn’t feel good, it simply doesn’t make the cut.
The Yummie Hug
It’s not a squeeze. It’s a hug. Yummie is slimming and smoothing, but not to the point of being uncomfortable. From everyday tanks to body shapers that hug you just right, our ultimate goal is for you to feel good about yourself without self-doubt! If you want your clothes to fit better, you’ve come to the right place. If you never want to fear a three-way mirror again, Yummie is definitely for you!
