 Body Bark Revolutionizes Underpinnings for Women

Latest trend in women’s lingerie protects clothing and skin in elegant comfort  

Denver, CO, December 8, 2008 – Body Bark™, the latest must-have in women’s apparel, today announced the launch of its signature line of women’s underpinnings. Body Bark is a soft, form-fitting, scoop-necked long- or short-sleeved underpinnings worn beneath clothing to protect the skin from rough fabric and knits and clothing from body oils and deodorant. Designed for every woman and every wardrobe, a Body Bark shirt adds comfort, protection and fashion to any outfit. Body Bark has revolutionized underpinnings by offering women:

  • Quality: made with the highest quality fabric
  • Protection for you and your clothing 
  • Cost savings: Body Bark gives sweaters two or three additional wearings before dry cleaning or washing
  • Luxurious comfort
  • High fashion
  • Versatility: Body Bark can be worn as an invisible undergarment, layered with other clothing or as an elegant stand alone top 

No longer confined to wearing conventional tanks, camisoles or undershirts, women can don invisible Body Bark shells that not only protect but feel wonderful against the skin. Body Bark underpinnings are made in the United States from a sustainable fabric derived from beech wood fiber that retains its color brilliance and softness. The micro modal fabric offers consumers pure luxury and softness, the ultimate sensual feeling next to the skin.  Body Bark comes in a variety of styles and colors to fit multiple wardrobe needs: deep scoop, modest scoop, and v-neck all available in long and short sleeve.  

Catherine Poirier, creator of Body Bark, was looking for a comfortable yet stylish undershirt to wear under her sweaters, but couldn’t find any with necklines that could be invisibly worn beneath a deep cut or v-neck sweater. Her vision for Body Bark was to create a comfortable, luxurious barrier protecting you from your clothing, and perhaps more importantly, your clothing from you. “Body Bark is the Lexus of undergarments for women” said Poirier. “Body Bark underpinnings offer amazing comfort against your skin and provide invisible coverage and protection under favorite sweaters.  Body Bark also gives clean lines under trendy vests and short-sleeved sweaters. Body Bark is so comfortable people will want to wear it with everything.”  

Body Bark is carried in specialty stores across the U.S. in major markets such as Chicago, Houston, Denver and Atlanta.
