The Real Housewives of New York City's Heather Thomson is getting ready to add to her growing shapewear empire. After launching the original Yummie Tummie to resounding success—followed by a denim collection, a legging line, and lingerie—Heather is about to launch The Yummie by Heather Thomson Active Collection, a fitness and sportswear line.

The new collection will include sports bras, leggings, tanks, tops, yoga pants, and jackets, including some with technology that will regulate the wearer's body temperature as they sweat and work out. "The Yummie by Heather Thomson Active Collection is such an exciting step for my brand," Heather said. "I created this line for the modern woman—we're always on-the-go and need versatile outfits to get from point A to point B while feeling comfortable and confident!"

Heather had previously stated her reasonings for expanding her brand. "I'm constantly searching to fill a void in women's wardrobes by identifying 'problem areas,' both physically and figuratively," she said.

The Yummie by Heather Thomson Active Collection is set to debut online and in stores in September.
