Shape-wear firms continue to work their way into clothing, and there's some especially great-looking stuff from Heather Thomson at Yummie Tummie (or just Yummie, as her clothing line is known). We especially love the denim designs, with just enough hold and ingenious stitching that gives you a little bit of lift. They come in blue, gray and jet black; $168 to $178 at yummielife.com.
Come spring, grooms will be able to choose Vera Wang as their designer, too. The bridal big announced recently that she would produce a line for The Men's Wearhouse, according to Women's Wear Daily. The first collection is said to focus on two styles -- one black, one gray (as always, not a lot of choices in the grooms' market).
