The Bracli -- Sisqo's ''Thong Song'' boosted sales of this pearl-and-lace version
Don’t be fooled by the name. The Bracli, a lace thong made with Manacor pearls, is the perfect accessory for your Brazilian bikini wax. Available at New York City’s La Petite Coquette — whose clientele includes Cindy Crawford, Winona Ryder, Anjelica Huston, Sarah Jessica Parker, Marisa Tomei, and Naomi Campbell — this thong suffers from a ”very very yucky name,” says store owner Rebecca Apsan, who has sold at least 500 red, black, and white Braclis in her shop and on her website (lapetitecoquette.com) this month alone. ”But it was created by combining the Spanish word for panty — bragas — and…” well, just think of that female body part Seinfeld’s date’s name rhymed with. Ah-ha. How comfortable is the lingerie, which sells for $69 a pop? It’s not an everyday item, stresses Apsan, whose sales likely got a boost by Sisqo’s unforgettable ode. ”It’s for special occasions.” Proceed with caution.
