My fall wardrobe is all blazers, denim and sweaters – my favorite things to buy. But what about what goes under all of those blazers and (sometimes) clingy knits? Enter my new secret weapon: the 6-in-1 shaping tank with patent-pending technology from Yummie. I’m going to speak to the tank’s specific benefits below (with photos of it without the blazer of course) but first I wanted to talk a little bit about shapewear in general. When Yummie first reached out to me to partner, my first instinct was “damn, I want that tank!!!” But I wasn’t sure about writing about shapewear… I think that there’s a little bit of shame associated with wearing/discussing shapewear which is kind of silly. We all just want to look and feel our best, after all.
Shapewear is one of the things I most frequently forget about or save for black-tie occasions. Frankly, until trying this tank, I thought of it as uncomfortable and something to be avoided (high-waisted briefs and granny panties… things you hide at the bottom of your underwear drawer). It would take me back to that scene in Bridget Jones’ Diary.
Yummie has changed that for me COMPLETELY. Everything I’ve tried from the brand (this tank, workout leggings, and a bodysuit) is supremely comfortable and fashionable. And what I like about the tank is that it’s cute enough to wear out and about – so it’s more of an everyday tank that happens to have magical powers than anything.
Besides my tank, Yummie has a lot of great bodysuits. Bodysuits were a favorite of mine last Fall/Winter as they create such a clean line (they’re so great with high-waisted denim and pants) and I love the idea of a bodysuit with subtle shaping benefits. I got this one and want to scoop up this long sleeved one next.
So let’s talk about this 6-in-1 Shaping Tank! What makes it so effective is it’s patent-pending technology containing two compression panels instead of one.
You can wear it with both panels in front for extra tummie control, with both panels in back for powerful back (and love handles) shaping) or wear one in the front and back for all around shaping.
I’d never tried a shaping tank before but I LOVE mine (it’s really comfortable and also nice and long so it never rides up or comes untucked) and frankly it gives me the confidence to be a little bit more body-con… usually I would layer a blazer over a loose silk cami as I’m a bit self-conscious of my midsection. This is different for me, but I like it! (Also it makes me stand up a bit straighter which is always a good thing.)
