PrimePick: Getting my shape back

What's a girl to do when she gains 10 lbs - find the best shapewear for women. We field tested some items to try them out.
Yummie shapewear for women is our Prime Pick of the Day

There’s one thing I’m not happy about – I gained 10 lbs this past year. While I’ve never been a skinny minny, this extra means most of my clothes don’t quite fit – or fit right, anyway. Also, since it’s not ten pounds of muscle weight, there are more jiggly parts, especially around my stomach. On top of that, if I wear any kind of binding waist, it creates a muffin top. While I plan to try to lose those excess pounds, I’d like to camouflage them for now. So what do I turn to? Shapewear.

Shaping Tanks Save the Day

Before you groan at the thought (which I did with ALL of the shapewear I previously owned), let me tell you what I found. I started with an amazing tank top that sucks in the gut while also being comfortable, to the point where I didn’t even feel like I was wearing shapewear and found that it never rolled up. This is not my first attempt at wearing a tank of this sort, but previous versions have had a myriad of problems (shiny, weird cuts, rolled up throughout the day, too low cut, etc.). This one blows the others away. It’s made by Yummie, and I love it!

The Lena Shaping Tank is seamless and is available in four colors – almond, black, dapple grey, and nude. The sizing available includes extended sizing, and it’s conveniently dual-sized at S/M….2X/3X. This beautiful tank has a strong level 4 compression with a hidden knit-in tummy panel. Also shown are the fabulous – and seamless – Ultralight Shaping Short (featured in a gorgeous almond color).

Wonderful Waist-Shaping Briefs

Yummie also sent me some fabulous high waist-shaping briefs. The Seamless Solutions High Waist Shaping Brief is available in three colors, almond, black and nude. They’re also available in dual sizing, which is amazing because it takes the guesswork out of what to get: S/M- 1X/ 2X. The seamless solutions group is level 4 smoothing and firm shaping to give you the smoothest look possible. The high waist design sits just below the bra and includes silicone to provide non-slip confidence.

Un-Thunder Your Thighs

Yummie High Waist Thigh Shaper

The Seamless Solutions High Waist Thigh Shaper is also available in three colors – almond, black and nude. The sizing is dual sizing S/M- 2X/3X, and it also features level 4 smoothing and firm shaping. The seamless styling provides complete allover smoothing and includes silicone at the waistband for the non-slip confidence that is inherent in the Seamless Solutions group.  

Overall, I feel like Yummie has advanced shapewear, especially in the comfort department. The tank is one I’m going to either need several of, or I’m going to be doing a lot of laundry because I could wear it pretty much every day. They actually carry many variations with a wide variety of colors which I’ll have to test. If you could use some slimming and shaping, I highly recommend trying one out today.
