Bracli Pearl Bodysuit is a lingerie item designed and marketed by the brand name “Bracli”. A bodysuit is a type of lingerie similar to a leotard, consisting of a single-piece form fitting garment that clothes the breasts, torso, and crotch. Bracli is a brand name associated with a line of luxury undergarments marketed primarily to women. It was patented by Luis Alvarez in 1996. Originating in Spain, the Bracli line was first imported into the United States by Rebecca Apsan, owner of La Petite Coquette. Apsan was responsible for selecting intimate apparel for the television series “Sex and the City”. It was on this show that Bracli products were introduced to the American public. The name “Bracli” was created by combining the the first three letters of two words: “Braga”, which is Spanish for “brassiere”, and “clitoris” – “Bra” “Cli”. The brand name is intended to elude to the sensuality and pleasurable nature of wearing this particular line of lingerie. Bracli boasts the invention of the “Original Pearl Thong”, a thong adorned with a string of pearls that rests along the crotch. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, this string of pearls is supposed to provide sexual stimulation to the wearer’s nether regions.
The Bracli Pearl Bodysuit is a variation of the Bracli Original Pearl Thong. This bodysuit consists of a brassiere joined to a thong by two panels of material, one on either side of the torso. The garment is composed primarily of a stretchable Spanish lace, accented by the trademark string of Mallorca pearls along the crotch region of the thong and a modest pearl embellishment on the bust. The makeup of the material is 85% Polyamide and 15% Spandex. The Bracli Pearl Bodysuit is available in the a variety of colors, including black, white, red, and ivory.
