Gone are the days of hideous hold-you-in undies that must be kept under wraps. A new range of shapewear has landed in the UK, consisting solely of items designed to be seen and sexy enough to be shown off.
Underwear as outerwear has been one of the biggest stories for spring/summer 2010 and now we have stumbled across a whole new inspired take on the trend.
Yummie Tummie is a genius range of tops and dresses designed to pull you in and smooth you out in all those crucial places. Their USP is that their little numbers are a whole lot sexier than your typical shapewear ranges (which let’s face it, must be kept strictly for your eyes only) and are designed to be worn as outerwear.
Check out the range online at www.yummietummie.com. We love this seriously hot black corset, which holds its own as a sexy addition to your wardrobe but is made just a tad more covetable by its ability (which is as good as magical) to appear to shave off inches. We’re all over a bit of help in that department.
With the range now available in Selfridges, John Lewis, Harrods and Harvey Nics, our prediction is it won’t be long before us style-savvy, body-conscious Brits are making these pieces our new (highly flattering) wardrobe staples.
