Heather Thomson started Yummie in 2008 with the three-panel tank, which is still a bestseller, but the Yummie team, which no longer includes Thomson, wanted to evolve on this idea with the six-in-one shaping tank, which has a patent-pending design.
The tank, which retails from $58 to $68, features built-in compression panels that offer different levels of control depending on the wearers’ preferences. Women are able to wear both panels in the back, to hide love handles, or two in the front to flatten out the stomach, or one on each side to have compression all around. The tank, which comes in black, white and nude, can also be worn with alternating necklines — either a scoop neck or a V-neck — and it’s invisible under clothing. It will range in sizes from small to 3X.

Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for customers, friends, family — and herself — for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
