A savvy and highly successful businesswoman, Heather Thomson is the creator of Yummie by Heather Thomson, a popular and innovative brand of wardrobe essentials. In more than 20 years as a successful designer and stylist, Heather has worked with some of the biggest names in entertainment including Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, and Sean “Diddy” Combs. As the founding Director of Design for his Sean John label, she is credited as a major force behind multiple CFDA award nominations. A married mother of two children—Jax, 10, and Ella Rae, 8—Heather got the idea for Yummie by Heather Thomson shortly after having her children. Disappointed by existing shapewear, she set out to create something sexier, comfier, and “yummier.” She came up with her patented three-panel system, which is now one of Yummie’s signature designs. Since the launch of Heather’s original Yummie Tummie three-panel tank, Yummie by Heather Thomson has expanded into categories beyond shapewear, with bras and panties, denim, leggings, active, and her newest, loungewear, launching in stores and on yummielife.com in July 2015. In addition to her professional work, Heather supports several charitable initiatives including the Kellner Family Pediatric Liver Disease Foundation, No Barriers, and the Tick Borne Disease Alliance, and she is a continued Organ Donation Advocate. In recognition of her philanthropic work, Heather has been the recipient of several awards including the Champion Award from the American Liver Foundation, the Spirit of Life Award from the City of Hope, and the H.U.G. Award, presented to her by the Intimate Apparel Square Club.
