Suburban Obsessions #30 -- Yummie Tummie

I know all of you are aware of body shapers and some of you might even own another brand that I won't mention, but rhymes with "thanks". As in, "thanks for rolling up on me when I bend over and reinforcing the magnitude of my muffin top, rather than minimizing it". Or "thanks for giving me a uniboob, because I don't have enough body image issues as it is, and I've always wanted to look like I was smuggling a stale loaf of sourdough bread in my bra".

Yummie Tummie is not that. For starters, it's longer than your average body shaper, which eliminates that problem of it rolling up every time you blink. But even better, it's meant to be seen. It looks like a normal tank top or t-shirt to any outsider, but the secret midsection panel smooths and shapes your rolls instantly transforming you into Kate Moss*. I ordered their nursing tank, and while you can't see it in these pictures, you can definitely spot the benefits:


Before (I want to read a few "that's pretty good for five weeks, Deb" comments in the comment section, by the way)




After




Notice the fabulous flat-like** shape of my jelly belly? Notice that I still have boobs, plural? No? Well, you can't see them from that angle, but maybe if you're nice to me in the comments, I'll send you a picture of the sisters***.

I'm still going to exercise once I get the nod. But in the meantime, I'm digging the extra help I'm getting from Yummie Tummie. Want one of your very own? Well, this is where sucking up to me in the comment section might benefit you. Leave a comment, and I'll enter you for a chance to win a $100 to spend on the Yummie Tummie web site. Get that? You leave a comment, and I make you look five pounds thinner like this:



How cool is that?

Hurry! The giveaway ends Friday night. Get your comments in by 5pm Eastern.









*Well, okay, maybe not Kate Moss. But a sleeker you, that's for sure.

**Flat-like. As in, not really flat, but appearing that way.

***But probably not.

Me, me, me!!!! This "healthy lifestyle" crap takes forever to work - I need some help NOW! I won't even make you show me your boobs.

Julia said...

ooooh, count me in! I'm gonna need it big time in a few months!

Julia said...

oh of course you KNOW you look great w/out that thing!!

Debbie said...

I'm totally in!!
You look hot by the way.... ;)

Lindsay said...

I don't think that you realize how much I freaking need this.... I got asked the other day whether I thought that I should have spaced the third kid a bit farther apart from the first two....

And have I mentioned how freaking amazing you look???

Pick me and give my poor abs a break from trying to suck in my enormous pp gut left over from 2 c-sections...

pick me!!! Pick me!!

Jamie said...

I still look 5 months pregnant at 1 year post partum. Yeah, I SO need this!

Kim said...

Pick me, pick me!!!

You look awesome

Christy Gray said...

Oooh! Oooh! You know I need this! Come on hot mama, pick me!

Marcie said...

Your "Before" Yummie Tummie was amazing. The "After" is unbelievable. Pregnancy is very kind to you... me, notsomuch. Any help I can get with my squishy belly would be much appreciated :)

jilly said...

You are rocking in the before picture, and I did take a few minutes to wallow in my jealousy hearing you have no stretch marks either.

Pick me, a gal much less lucky in midsection genetics.

carley said...

I SO SO NEED this Deb. And you DO look freaking awesome before. Shit. I don't look that good 6 MONTHS later. Geesh.

PLLLLEEEAAASSSEEE pick ME!

Crazy Momma said...

Me..come on I have flab from two babies and a serious oreo habit. I promise if I get this thing I would go the 12 steps to get rid of my oreo/Little Debbie habit and walk the straight and narrow. I will even get a sponsor that will make sure that I eat healthy and do the unthinkable...exercise ..to ensure that my new yummy tummy looks that much better..

Vikki said...

I NEED IT! My tummy is a mess! I think the age thing is catching up with me. You, on the other hand, have 3 years on me and look amazing!!!

April Sample said...

Deb, yummy tummy or not you look incredible. Now share this yummy things with someone like me. Someone who really needs it

Cindybakedababy said...

You look amazing for 5 weeks my dear! I'm 29 months out and don't have that flat of stomach! I would love those Yummy Tummies as well, maybe it could hide the fupa!

StelKel said...

Are flabby Canadians eligible? If so, count me in!!! If you can just get me looking like your before shot, that would be fine!

LJS8888 said...

You look fantastic! I so need this!

Cindybakedababy said...

Ok after looking at their site I need to comment again, those are amazing! I love that they don't look like shapewear like my spanx! Plus you don't have to try to pee through an impossibly small hole in your garment making you feel like Betsy Wetsy.

Haley said...

Oh, my tummy could definitely benefit from that!

Latasha said...

I wanna try it if they make them in my size.. LOL

BTW you look great for 5 weeks deb ; )

Jazz said...

*in the voice of Eddie Murphy* Ohhh pick me, pick me!!! (yeah we watch a lot of Shrek in this house).

I NEED this Deb, so I can wear it next time I come up to visit you, thus avoiding the need for me to blow my brains out because you are older than me and you have TWICE the number of kids as me, yet I will never look as good as you in a pair of jeans!

Deb said...

Jazz, you meant I'm twice as old as you. ;)

The Mad White Woman said...

Okay, regardless of whether I win or not, you look AMAZING. Seriously. I do not have the genetic makeup that apparently runs rampid in your family. I'm going to be 42 years old on Feb. 11th and The Man Thing asked me the other night what I had stuffed under my shirt making me look pregnant.

It was my boobs *w/o bra* and my stomach melding together into one fat blob.

Needless to say he spent the night by himself and I didn't speak to him for two days.

I still look as though I'm about 7 months pregnant and my youngest is going to be 6 in March.

I eat one meal, sometimes two a day, and drink plenty of water. I even got off my ass and went to get the code for the weight room which is about 30 steps from my apartment door.

I'm going to start working out again this year, I swear I am, but boy, this would sure help to motivate me!

Of course, if I don't win I can always lock myself in my room and stock up on the valium and just veg 2009 away... (grins)

Karyn said...

Your a$$ looks hot even after you have a baby...good lord woman, now I really want to be like you!

I would love this prize!

Shannie said...

You look amazing! I want one so I can look just as awesome as you Deb!

Jenn said...

Deb, you look fantastic!! And no thats not a stroke to your ego. Be glad its not a boot to your ass after all those damn excercise classes I do and I sure as hell don't look that good. *pout*

Sign me up girlie.

Trudi said...

You look AMAZING! You look better at 5 weeks post-partum than I did pre-children, my dear. And now that I've squeezed out two of my own, my tummy wants to be hugged by a Yummie Tummie of its very own. *pick me! pick me!*

Destiny said...

You look Fantastic both before and after ~ I need some Yummy Tummy now too!! =)

Renee said...

I found you through Mrs. F...and ironically enough-I SAW you on the Today show-what like a year or more ago? LOVE your blog....and I SO need the Yummie Tummie to hide the muffin top that all jeans seem to create for me. (ugh-why is it tough to find jeans after the age of 35 or is it just me?!?!)

You DO look fantastic and congrats on your 2nd baby-having two is challenging but rewarding all at the same time-makes leaving the house take on a whole new meaning!!!! But, I will say, that in some ways having two is easier-as they get a little older-Ambassador has a built in playmate so that Mommy can have say oh 5 minutes to herself?!?

Kiki said...

How is it possible that you look amazing good in jeans I wouldn't dare try on in a body that has never birthed a baby...you look bananas. (That's awesome in Rachel Zoe speak)

Seriously, sign me up, I want to look like you!

christinaj_g said...

You look great! I'm still sporting more of a muffin top, 2 years after my last child.

Karen said...

Dear Yummie Tummie,

I love you. Marry me.

Love,

Me
P.S. Deb is a freakin' hot chick, damn her!

Sarah said...

You look FANTASTIC in your before shot, you don't need that Tummie Yummie, you should just send it my way ;)

annenahm said...

It would take a lot more than five pounds to make me look like the before picture, much less the after :^). You look great, btw.

Christibear said...

First, you look great. So great I had to go to YummieTummie's website to check this out.
Second, I've only birthed two babies (one at 25 and the other at 31) via C-section and losing the extra "love handles (front and sides) has been harder after 30, adding my "luck" with the Depo shot, I've come to the point where I don't correct strangers telling me I look great after having four children (the other two I'm inheriting from my fiance'). I just let them believe that. Perhaps I could start telling them the truth, or not but get even more compliments, if you were PRETTY PLEASE choose me! They'd come in really handy for my wedding!

Jamie said...

I NEED it! I'm 7 years post baby and still trying to lose the belly flab. I constantly get asked when I am due. I'm losing weight as we speak with exercise and good diet, but the belly is still as big as ever!! I'm convinced it will never go away, well maybe if I had a tummy tuck, but who has $10K to throw around? Not me!

Morgan Blue said...

Sweeet!

Immoral Matriarch said...

I NEED one. Dammit.

Diann M said...

Wow. The chance to win a Yummy Tummy aside, you really do look great Deb. I don't think I look that good 2.5 year after delivering my last child!

Erin said...

I so need this - after 2 c-sections - that loose belly skin (and maybe a little bit of oreo cakesters) just does not want to budge!!!!

lisa said...

you look amazing..i hate you...i love you...i love to hate you.

i hope i win...tummy needs a face lift.

Christa said...

Wow, you look fab for just having a baby! I'm totally jealous!

And I'm totally desperate to try on of those things. I've tried the other kind and get the uni-boob look. So not flattering.

Pick me please!

Tina said...

Did someone say "giveaway"?!

Thanks, Deb! You're a great spokesmodel! :)

Shawna said...

Unfortunately, I can't blame my belly on having kids. But I can blame it on McDonald's. Help me suck it all in!

Tiffany said...

I'd kill for your before shot. You look awesome. And I want that thing!!!

MommyTime said...

First of all, you rock my socks off with your five-weeks self! Second, that shirt is awesome and I really really want one. Third, even if I don't win one, I have to say, Rock on Sister! You are amazing!

Jill said...

Deb - I've said it before and I'll say it again...You do look AWESOME after such a short time after giving birth. I still have 20 something to lose and it is all in my gut. I would LOVE this thing!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!

Trenches of Mommyhood said...

First of, you bee-yotch! (There, I feel better now...)

Second, I'm like the PRIME candidate for that there contraption. Hello? 3 children via 3 c-sections? I'm what you call SCARY NAKED.

*fingers crossed*

Cassie J. said...

You look great Deb!

I defiantly need one of those!

V. said...

Just posting and entering for the hell of it. I have nothing quirky to say...so ....yea.... Hi!

THE LETTS FAMILY said...

Girl, You crack me up. I don't know how I missed the obsession. But I love the "Thanks" commentary.
