Things I Love Thursday- Yummie Tummie Leggings

We had a moment of panic here in the Diaper Diary household as a spring storm took out our electricity. I can live without lights, air conditioning and phone. But suddenly I realized the American Idol would not tape and I HAD NO INTERNET. I knew my Things I Love Thursday peeps needed me. I was about to go knocking door to door until I found me some wireless. Instead I called the power company and said, “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM??” I am like a big deal blogger and need my internet. Well, I would have, but they came and fixed it without me having to name drop. They must have just sensed that the internet needed me.

So crisis averted. Whew. Anywho, it only seems fitting after talking about my weight loss goals yesterday I should let you in on a little secret. If I want to, I can drop a quick 10 pounds in a matter of minutes. I told you about my Yummie Tummie nursing tank a while back. I kid you not, I still wear this thing several times a week. In fact I just feel better when I have it on so I try and wear it as much as I can. Life is better without lumps. You can embroider that on a pillow.

Well, now Yummie Tummie has come up with leggings. So now you get suckage-inage (a very technical term) on both your tummy and your thighs and your derriere. Cause I don’t know if you have noticed, but typically leggings leave you a little lumpy. Well maybe not you, but definitely me. And remember our motto from our cute little pillow? I am no scientist, but it seems like the key is that the leggings seem to have 2 layers. One for sucking-inning and then the legging layer.

Now, in all honesty, I wish these came up a tiny bit higher. Cause at times I am fighting them a bit as they want to roll down. But that could be due to an over ambitious assessment of what size I require. Ahem. Also I got the tricot fabric which has a bit of a sheen to it. Apparently that is all the rage in fashion circles (as you might have noticed watching American Idol tonight), but considering most of my “fashion” as of late consists of spit up stained yoga pants, I am not sure I should have gotten the fashionable fabric. I think I should get the knit ones instead.

As soon as I drop a few more pounds I am squeezing myself into these with some sort of fancy top and hitting the town. Maybe with some of those thigh high boots Carrie Underwood was sporting. I am 17% confident I can pull that look off.

What do you love this week? Besides the thought of me in the previously described outfit for comedic effect. Link up your post below and don’t forget to link back over here so everyone can find our little party. Don’t forget to use the #TILT hashtag to tweet your post so we can hopefully do some retweeting. Thanks as always for participating!!

*I was provided with a pair of Yummie Tummie leggings to facilitate my review. As usual all opinions are mine.


  1. Yummie Tummy Yummie Tummy … my tummie (or legs) need to try those things!! (and psst … I was really hoping there’d be a giveaway link at the end of this post!)

  2. You are funny. Good luck with your leggings ensemble. I’m kind of beyond caring about my lumps. Plus, I’m so hot all the time due to breastfeeding that the only thing I don’t die in is ugly yoga-pants-ish capris. Take that, fashion!

  3. P.S. I’m sorry you didn’t get to tell all your neighbors what a big deal you are.

  5. With nursing, I weigh less now than I did when I got pregnant, but I STILL have a belly! I think the Yummy Tummy stuff sounds awesome.

  9. I had to laugh with the Carrie Underwood bit. My husband was watching it last night and said, “What is that she is wearing?” He wasn’t complaining…just couldn’t identify the types of clothing!

  10. Ooh, I love this idea! My thighs have always irritated me. My tummy is fine, but I could use some suckage-innage on those thighs! ;)

  11. I could really use some good shapewear. I’ve heard good things about the Yummy Tummy tanks, but I didn’t know they also made leggings.

  13. I goofed when I put in my link! Can you delete #42? I think if I have some of those Tummy tanks that maybe I wouldn’t have to do Jullian every morning! How sweet that would be!

  14. I could have used one of those for the wedding I attended this past weekend. I looked preggo, and, well, I’m not. The stares were embarrassing, but alas, it shall be motivation to lose a few…okay, quite a few!
