I have seen Neubodi’s shops at shopping malls & had even walked in once or twice. The first impression was prices are high, while the designs are too flowery. Even worst, there are hardly any options for strapless bra, which are the only kind I wear.
It takes education and understanding to change one’s perception. And mine was recently revised when I had a personal session with one of the Neubodi trained consultants. A simple bra shopping session became an hour of educational exercise; both in theory and practical.
I’m glad and thankful to a good friend for arranging this session for me. It was an enlightening affair and I must absolutely share what I learnt with YOU!
Our session started with meeting the Estee, GM of Neubodi Malaysia briefing us on Neubodi philosophy and vision. She also gave us an inkling what lies ahead, which includes having the Neubodi specialist handling your boobs. Yes, you read right.
Estee said “We practice a holistic bra fitting method using the hand-measuring technique to help you find the right bra that best suit your shape.”
Now now, there’s no reason to freak out as yet.
If you’re uncomfortable with the idea of anyone’s hands on your breasts, then just say so. The bra fitting professionals are experienced and you are assured of a warm, genuine and heartfelt fitting service that is geared towards the goal of sharing the methods of wearing and choosing the right bra for oneself.
And it’s not just the bra, a matching panty helps to the keep the other two humps on your body looking perky too! :D
Briefing done, I was assigned a Neubodi fitting specialist and she promptly got to work.
Leann first takes a quick glance at my bosom.
A swift placement of her hands around my bustline and her trained eye enables her to quickly determine the starting bra size to try. From there, a few changes of Neubodi bras may be required before concluding on the perfect one.
I spent quite a long time for my fitting but my consultant wasn’t in any rush, and neither should you. Here at Neubodi, the session is over only when BOTH parties are satisfied with the choice – meaning the correct bra.
Step 1: Buckle up on the bra and ensure 2 fingers mobility as you slide your fingers horizontally over your bustline. Adjust if not.
Step 2 : Adjust the straps. Ensure 1 finger mobility (slide one finger under the straps).
Step 3: Now, the key to good breast shape and posture is to ensure ALL “fats” under the bust, arms and sides are all “pushed” into the bra cup. So bend over, put your hand into the THICK bust band and push all flesh from the bands INTO the bra cup.
Leanna demonstrates it one time and then I’ll have to do it myself.
See where my hand is? EVERYTHING from there goes into the cup.
Step 5: Next is the flesh from around the cup, which is from the armpits and side of the straps. Gather all and place into the bra cups as well.
See where her hand is?
Pull and gather into the cup.
This is how you do it.
Step 6: Lastly, stand tall and hold on to ONE cup (right at where the under-wire is) and use the other hand to “pull” the additional flesh from the bust into the cup.
And my turn to do it myself.
And alright! That’s done! See how suddenly I have boobs?
All those flesh out of the bra cup (sides and underneath) are actually your breasts!
For closure, Estee explained how we should care for our undergarments. If you don’t already know, all undergarments should be handwashed and hung upside down to dry. The detergent shouldn’t be harsh yet does the job of ensuring the hygiene of the undergarment.
Seeing how Neubodi’s items are handsewn and made with delicate quality materials, I decided not to take any chances and bought myself a bottle of Neubodi own manufactured washing liquid for my complimentary set.
I have worn the Neubodi bra for 2 weeks now, though not everyday as I still have to wear my strapless ones for my skimpy tops. But this Neubodi fitting session has ingrained in me the correct way of wearing my bras now; so much so that I made sure that I did all the steps above each morning when I put on my bra.
As advised by Estee, I should be getting another 1 or 2 more Neubodi sets to rotate the usage of my current one. I still need a strapless one so I”m opting for that next. I’m hoping for improved posture and better breast shape after 6 months of continuous use; as assured by Neubodi team.
For those of us who loves our bare-backs and strapless, shorts hours of wearing strapless bras and these stick-ons are fine, as long as you change back to your full cup Neubodi after that as Neubodi brassieres provides the proper support for our breasts.
Here’s a good read about Neubodi brassieres.
What Makes Our Brassieres So Unique?
Shoulder straps are set at least 15mm wide to provide 10-20% support to the breasts.
Soft boning structure
We incorporate each piece with a special boning side structure. This is a ‘keep and lock’ system to enhance your body silhouette.
The under band provides more than 80% of lift and support to the breasts. Our high and broad under bands are constructed to sit firmly around the body and to provide stability to the breasts.
The center gore is thoughtfully constructed to sit firmly against the chest to provide a strong hold to the bra.
Our cups are impressed with a 3D contour design to actualize volume and also to intensify a desirable cleavage.
The underwire is the crucial element to ensure the breast are cupped and held in place perfectly and comfortably.
Why Neubodi is Not Your Ordinary Bra
All Neubodi lingerie is 100% hand-cut and hand-sewn to ensure the right fit for you.
“Our hand-sewn lingerie consists of over 600 sizes, colours and design, available from cup B – I, with band size from 30-44.”
So there’s something for everyone! :DD
So that’s my experience at Neubodi. What do you guys/gals think? :D
