OMG we look… 5 pounds thinner!
The folks from Yummie Tummie sent us a few of their body shaping pieces to review. What Fun! We were happy to take a break from our marathon work session — strip down and try them on. Sorry to say it didn’t go so well. For the first time after nearly two years of working together, we ended up fighting- not over work, but over the clothes. We both lusted after the compression leggings (guess who won?– Felice has three sisters, Ronna has none.)
We both own plenty of Spanx, but this stuff was dreamy in comparison. With Yummie Tummie, we didn’t feel like stuffed sausages. Looser fitting- but still super compressing–in the choice regions like hips, waist and butt–we admired ourselves and each other in our new shapewear.
We loved it so much we kept it on, dressed it up with some accessories (BA50 Girlfriend bracelets from Nepal, and scarves), and off we went to a Judith Hannon (Motherhood Exaggerated) author reading. We showed it off to the 50 women in the room, then we ate more than our fair share of Brie and crackers…and we were still able to breathe and not feel girdled the whole evening. And we didn’t run home and feel like we had to rip it off to expand to our normal sizes–we went out for dinner and ate more (we were, after all, 5 pounds thinner.)
So, we wanted to share our new find with our BA50 readers…
This is what we tried on and loved —
1. The Tank top — Ronna put it on (because Felice snarfed the leggings) and would not take it off (what’s fair, is fair).
Here is the $48 Girlfriend Tank on the beautiful model (who looks good anyway):
And here is a very human Ronna model (with hidden muffin top and our fabulous bracelets):
2. The Milan Legging ($76): Here it is on a beautiful model (sans tush):
Here it is on Felice (avec tush)- she is also wearing the blue Stephanie 2-way Tank ($34) :
Almost all pieces are under $100 – denim, tanks, cami’s, slips, bottoms, etc.
They’re sold at Bloomingdale’s, Dillard’s, Saks, Nordstrom and boutiques around the world–search for locations here.
