Have you seen Yummie Tummie's 2010 Spring Collection yet? My two favorite items are the Ruffle Top and the Cowlneck Tank . Unfortunately the Cowlneck Tank is all sold out but the Yummie Tummie folks must have read about how I'm slobbering all over the Ruffle Top, because they sent me one to review!
Here's my attempt to recreate the photo of the Yummie Tummie model:
Not bad considering the location was my bedroom, not some hi-tech studio, and my six-year old son was the photographer, using a point-and-shoot camera that's older than he is.
It's a really adorable top! The ruffle is flirty and fun, and makes me feel like I should be heading off to Vegas and partying at The Palms for Spring Break.
But, pssssst! I'll let you in on a little secret.
I'm not a college student anymore.
Which means I have a bit more flab and a bit less fab than when I was actually young enough to go on Spring Break. But never fear, this is a Yummie Tummie top, so it smooths out all the flabby bits without making you feel like you can't breath, or make you look like some burrito bursting at the seams because it's got a little too much filling. The material is more cotton-y, not shiny and Lycra-ish like underwear, so you can wear it on its own. Truth be told, I wouldn't have the guts to wear this top if it weren't a Yummie Tummie.
One thing to note: the ruffle badly needed ironing after I put it in the wash -- but the care instruction tag had a big NO IRON symbol on it. I ironed it anyway (just the ruffle, not the tank itself) on a cooler setting, using a cotton napkin to shield the fabric because I was terrified I'd scorch it and ruin my cute new top. It turned out fine.
One other tip I'd give is to order your Yummie Tummies true to size so you take full advantage of its Slimming Superpowers. Against my fellow Yummie Tummie Brand Ambassador Cat's advice, I ordered a size larger than I usually do (I haven't been exercising and I thought I had moved up a size), and as a result, the neckline is a bit looser and the material wrinkles a bit at the waist. My fault, not theirs.
So ladies, the moral of the story is, Trust in
Maybe I should book a room at The Palms after all.
