Heather Thomson is the woman behind the successful and innovative Yummie by Heather Thomson brand and now the newest cast member of BRAVOs successful REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK CITY franchise. The upcoming fifth season of RHONY follows Heather along with her cast mates as they juggle family, careers and an ever entertaining social life.
Heather is on a mission to make you forget everything you know about shapewear. She has transformed what America and the world thinks of as the undergarment and has single-handedly revolutionized the shapewear industry with her Yummie Tummie brand. The idea for Yummie was born shortly after Heather had her children. Disappointed by the shapewear products that existed, she set out to create something sexier, comfier and, well, yummier. She came up with the patented 3-panel system that is now Yummie Tummies signature – and nothing was ever the same. With Yummie by Heather Thomson, women can love their bodies, just the way they are because it gives them that added boost of confidence. Pieces flatter and smooth, so that your natural shape becomes the show stopper. They let you look your best all the time, so that the first thing people see is your confidence. Now thats Yummie.
Heathers vision is backed by over 20 years as a successful designer and stylist who has worked with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. She was founding Design Director for the Sean Diddy Combs line and is credited as a major force behind multiple CFDA award nominations. She also worked alongside superstars Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Lopez to create and launch their respective labels. These groundbreaking collaborations and Yummie by Heather Thomson are all bound by Heathers passion for innovation coupled with her sense for knowing what works and what doesnt.
In addition to her work as the Founder/ Chief Creative Officer of Yummie by Heather Thomson, Heather is a valued advocate for multiple philanthropic organizations. She is a Cause Celebrity for Organ Donation and deeply involved in supporting the public education efforts of the New York Organ Donor Network. As a board member of the Kellner Pediatric Liver Foundation, Heather works to reduce the incidence of pediatric liver disease by raising funds and awareness for the foundation. Having personally experienced the impact of these advocacies with her son, she makes every effort to promote and support their initiatives both locally and nationwide. Most recently, Heather was honored with the City of Hopes annual 2010 Spirit of Life Award recognizing her tireless efforts to promote power and self-confidence in women of all ages around the world.
