Blisslets

Feel-Good Fashion

Blisslets are the stealthy, stylish, anti-nausea bracelet sets from Katherine and Bernardo Aparicio. Back in 2010, Katherine was expecting her first baby and, like lots of women, experiencing bouts of morning sickness. Although acupressure wristbands helped, the only ones available were unsightly, conspicuous, and ultimately blew her cover before she was ready to announce her pregnancy.

Blisslets are the stealthy, stylish, anti-nausea bracelet sets from Katherine and Bernardo Aparicio. Back in 2010, Katherine was expecting her first baby and, like lots of women, experiencing bouts of morning sickness. Although acupressure wristbands helped, the only ones available were unsightly, conspicuous, and ultimately blew her cover before she was ready to announce her pregnancy.

In 2017, when battling morning sickness again, she took the plunge and—in a fitting span of nine months—Blisslets was born. Teaming up with her husband, Katherine turned to medical professionals, scientific literature, and focus groups to test the effectiveness of acupressure. With this background know-how, the duo were able to create a drug-free alternative that’s stylish and comfortable. Pull on a pair to help relieve motion and morning sickness and other types of nausea in as fast as five minutes.
