Whittle your middle

It sounds like a dream come true. I'm talking about Heather Thomson's Yummie Tummie shaper tank, $62, barenecessities.com. Here's what it's got going—the top half of the garment is cotton and looks just like a normal layering piece (that doesn't compress your bust—bonus!), the middle panel is the "suck-you-in" part and the bottom is, again, normal looking cotton (perfect to peek from under your favorite t-shirt).

And here's what one tester (me!) thought, I didn't feel (or look) that much slimmer standing up but when I sat down, that's when the magic happened. The Yummie Tummie reduced or eliminated any muffin top roll over my jeans. My only complaint was that it seemed to ride up a bit during normal activity. Perhaps mine was the wrong size. Anyway, it's something to think about when you're planning your wedding-related wardrobe. —from our Local Scout Chicago blogger Beth Wilson
