President of Leggings

Gather around Ladies, this post is for you. It contains information crucial to your survival!

As we decide the next leader of our Nation, I have some even more pertinent fashion advice for you. The votes are in and the winner of the BEST LEGGING EVER has been determined!

Winter is coming, we all know what that means, legging season.

Like most other women, I live in my leggings. A world without leggings would be a terrible world to live in, so let’s not pretend like we haven’t all accepted leggings as pants.

If you haven’t incorporated Yummie By Heather Thomson into your everyday wardrobe, I promise I am not steering you wrong here. I am here to declare them the BEST Legging Ever!

I’ve become a bit of a legging connoisseur, trying several brands to see if they can meet my baby got back needs. And these body shaping pair quickly became my favorite after several disappointments.
I first heard of Heather Thomson from Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York. Although she talked about her brand on the show, I never thought to try it out. I haven’t tried any of her other articles of clothing, but I hear great things about the ‘original tank,’ deemed one of Oprah’s favorite things! She added leggings to her Yummie repertoire in 2011 but it wasn’t until my Mom insisted that I try a pair after listening to my non-stop complaints about constantly hiking-up my everyday attire.
As soon as I put on my first pair, I’ve never looked back! 
I own three pairs of the Rachel Legging, I cannot recommend them enough to other legging lovers like myself.
Unless you’re one of thoooose, size -2 girls, whose leggings don’t cause some of the issues the rest of us more endowed girls face, you need these leggings and this information.
As a Mom and a 32-year-old, ahem, I prefer to wear tops that are long enough to cover my booty while sporting leggings. But that doesn’t always happen and I can’t have my leopard print, granny panties pushing through too sheer, over-stretched, black leggings.

You know what I’m talking about!

Not Yummie black leggings! Black as my soul black, not once have I seen a hint of print poking through.

Another issue the common leggings might cause you, the dreaded muffin top. Nobody wants to slip on their favorite pair of “pants,” and not feel good and slender.
Yummie offers what they call a “tummy shaping panel,” on their leggings. Hell to the YES!

The leggings sit high, well above my belly button, keeping it all in and causing no muffins. The top is also tight, cue the ‘tummy shaping panel,’ that puppy sucks it all in making my tummy look and feel flatter!

I buy my Yummie leggings at Nordstrom Rack so they are cheaper than listed on their website!

This post is in NO way sponsored. I’ve literally tried every legging there is and have deemed these my favorite!
Now I’m going to go die of stress from this election.

    I'm 5'4" and 160lbs, so I ordered large alo yoga and they fit great. I usually wear a medium in other activewear brands, but since compression pants tend to be pretty snug, I sized up. Fits very well – excellent price
