Patent Issued for the First Original Snap-on-Bra Mock Camisole

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Naples, FL -- BraNovations, Inc. announces that Michelle De Sousa has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,062,093 for the FIRST and ORIGINAL SNAP TO BRA MOCK CAMISOLE, known as the Cleava®.

Cleava® is a small, innovative bra accessory solution with unique features that snap around the straps and the bridge (between the cups) of most bras, securely creating a simulated dress top or instant camisole look. The bra accessory modestly covers only the cleavage area just as a tank top or a full camisole would without the extra bulk material around the body. Cleava® is backless and strapless, unlike bandeaux or tank tops. Cleava® is a 21st century solution for women as what a man's necktie is for men. Women can go instantly from modesty to sexy in seconds and vice versa.

"If you're comfortable, you're confident."- Michelle De Sousa Inventor of Cleava®

Cleava® is the solution for accent layering, transforming low cut outfits instantly in 3 easy snaps. It adds style and versatility to any woman's wardrobe. Go from corporate to casual in a snap without undressing or redressing. The wearer controls how much cleavage to reveal or cover up when a dress code is enforced at work, school or church. Cooler layering options for hot flushes. Cleava® is lightweight, which makes it great for traveling. It conceals scarring from chemo ports or heart surgery and is a maternity wear companion. One size fits most, successfully tested from sizes A to J cup. Made of high quality soft expandable fabric, machine washable and tumble dryer safe. No worries of it flipping out when bending over due to the snap methods between the cups of the bra and around the bra straps, Cleava® stays securely in place. A must-have fashion accessory invented and designed by a woman for women.

Cleava® has received many great reviews:

"I currently have a black one, bought at a local store. I just love it. It's so much more comfortable than a camisole! I'm looking forward to getting the additional colors!"- Dawn Hoffman, Port Orange, Florida, USA.

"I live in Anchorage, Alaska. I would love to know when your new items come out. Also I am so pleased to have the Cleava®, I can wear clothes that I didn't think I could before. Just love it."- Pennie Barnes, Anchorage, Alaska, USA.

Cleavas® are available in over 35 different colors and styles, priced from $19.95 to $39.95, or a Combo pack for $29.95. Cleavas® are sold online at and in fine retailers around the U.S.A. and Internationally.

Cleava's® got you covered...even when your body changes...or your surroundings change...with Cleava® you're in control!
