FROM “YUMMIE TUMMIE”:
Heather Thomson is on a mission to make you forget everything you know about shape wear. From intimates to ready-to-wear and denim, Heather’s innovative fabrics and designs hug, lift, and smooth your body in all the right places – with unbelievable comfort.
Heather believes that clothes should feel good, look good, and make you love what you see in the mirror. Her versatile styles take you from work to workout, daytime to date time with an added boost of confidence. For women everywhere, Yummie by Heather Thomson is a revelation.
Heather’s vision is backed by 15 years as a successful designer and stylist. She’s worked with some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Sean “Diddy” Combs. She was the founding Design Director for his line, and is credited as a major force behind multiple CFDA award nominations.
She’s also worked alongside superstars Beyoncé Knowles and Jennifer Lopez to create and launch their respective labels. These groundbreaking collaborations and Yummie by Heather Thomson are bound by her passion for innovation and eye for what works in fashion.
The idea for Yummie by Heather Thomson was born shortly after her children. Disappointed by existing shapewear, she set out to create something sexier, comfier, and “yummier.” She came up with the patented 3 section system that is now Yummie Tummie’s signature – and shapewear has never been the same.
Yummie by Heather Thomson brings together fashion and function. Pieces flatter and smooth, so your natural shape becomes the show stopper. They let you look your best all the time, so that the first thing people see is your confidence. Now that’s Yummie.
