Heather Thomson Biography

  • Thomson is a fashion designer for her shapewear line YUMMIE TUMMIE. (Sounding a little reminiscent of Jill Zarin?)
  • She was the founding Design Director for Sean “Diddy” Combs’ fashion line and has also worked alongside Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Lopez to create and launch their labels.
  • She has received three CFDA nominations.
  • - Thomson has two kids. Her son was born very sick and was in need of a liver transplant. Since then she created the “Survivor Tank,” which is inpsired by women battling breast cancer and donates 100% of proceeds to research. (Ok, she is definitely Jill’s replacement)- She was honored at the City of Hope’s annual 2010 Spirit of Life Award alongside Kristin Chenoweth and Kathy Lee Gifford.

A savvy and highly successful businesswoman, Heather Thomson is the creator of "Yummie by Heather Thomson," a popular and innovative shapewear line. Fifteen years as a successful designer and stylist, she's worked with some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, and Tina Knowles and Sean "Diddy" Combs. She was the founding Design Director for his Sean John line, and is credited as a major force behind multiple CFDA award nominations. A married mother of two, Jax, 6, and Ella Rae, 4, the idea for Yummie by Heather Thomson was born shortly after having her children. Disappointed by existing shapewear, she set out to create something sexier, comfier, and "yummier." She came up with the patented 3-panel system that is now Yummie Tummie's signature. Since the launch of the original tank, Yummie by Heather Thomson has expanded into ready-to-wear and denim. In addition to her professional work, Heather supports several charitable initiatives including Kelllner Family Pediatric Liver Disease Foundation and City of Hope.
