I don’t want to get into a discussion about the American ideal of female beauty and how we all needlessly beat ourselves up for not having the “right” body or whatever. As women in this country we’re basically just hosed. Let’s agree to that, and move on.
That said, I don’t want to be wearing a corset or other mystical contraption designed to make me look better but that cuts off my ability to breathe, you know? I’d rather be a little lumpy but comfortable than smooth and in pain. Heh.
But what’s awesome is that now there’s Yummie Tummie, stealthy lump-concealing layering pieces that look (and feel) like regular clothing. The nice folks at Yummie Tummie hooked me up with a couple of skinny tanks and I love them; I tend to layer tank tops under other shirts, already, but these just kind of… smooth me out. While looking to the naked eye just like all of my other tanks.
Today we’re sharing the love—one lucky Want Not reader is going to win a $100 gift certificate to shop at Yummie Tummie. Want to win it? Of course you do! First go review the contest rules and regulations and then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, September 30th, 2009 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number drawing and generally sassiness. Because you don’t need a Yummie Tummie—you’re already plenty yummy—but their stuff is so cute and comfy, why not?
