Q

WHAT IS NUBRA?

A

NuBra is the original strapless, backless, adhesive bra. It delivers all-day everyday comfort and freedom. 

Q

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NUBRA?

A

NuBra can replace your regular bra. It’s perfect for all-day everyday wear, as well as strapless, backless, sheer, and halter dresses and tops. The patented clip gives you total cleavage control, delivering coverage and support without the binding straps found on traditional bras.

Q

HOW DO I PUT A NUBRA ON?

A

It’s really easy. To get the best out of your NuBra, just follow the steps below. To ensure that your NuBra’s adhesive stays effective, avoid the following: moisturizers, powders, perfumes, or other skin-care products.

IMPORTANT: CLEAN YOUR SKIN

 Gently clean your chest with mild soap and water to remove body oil or residue from your skin.

 Dry your skin with a soft towel.

 We recommend using Nu Skin Wipes to prepare your skin with a protective film before applying your NuBra.

PLACE ONE SIDE AT A TIME

 In front of a mirror, take one bra cup carefully by the edges and set it to the desired position on your breast. It’s best to place the cup on the outside of your breast with the clasp pointing to your belly button.

 Smooth the edges onto your breast, leaving 2 to 3 finger widths from the bottom.

 Repeat the application with the other bra cup.

CONNECT THE FRONT CLASP

 Slide the end of the right-side clasp into the left-side and snap into the locked position.

 With both hands on the bra cups, press firmly for a few seconds for a secure hold. Enjoy!

Q

HOW DO I DETERMINE THE CORRECT NUBRA SIZE FOR ME?

A

We make NuBra in sizes from AA to DD/E. We recommend that you select the correct size of NuBra based on your regular cup size (with no padding).

If you’re between sizes and/or very petite (eg size 6-10 in tops) and want to create cleavage, you may prefer to choose a size down. 

NuBra is unique in that it works differently from regular bras. NuBras are not intended for full coverage, but they can be positioned to provide support and cleavage control. It is important that the entire adhesive surface is in contact with skin.

See our video and size guide for help deciding which NuBra is best for you.

Q

WHAT KIND OF ADHESIVE DOES NUBRA USE?

A

The adhesive on NuBra is a skin friendly adhesive that has been tested and certified to be skin-irritation free by independent labs in the U.S., Japan, and Europe.

Q

IS NUBRA SUPER STICKY? WILL IT FALL OFF?

A

The adhesive on NuBra is sticky enough to stay on throughout the day. NuBra provides support and comfort no matter what your day brings. With proper care, your NuBra will last for many wears.

Q

IS NUBRA DIFFICULT TO REMOVE?

A

The adhesive is very strong, but less tacky than a Band-Aid®. Gently peel off each cup gradually from the top down. 

Q

DOES NUBRA LEAVE A STICKY RESIDUE?

A

If any adhesive residue remains, simply remove it by wiping your skin with a soft tissue.

Q

HOW DO I CLEAN NUBRA?

A

Cleaning is essential after each use. Always wash your NuBra (using only mild soap and water) to remove any body oil or other products that may clog the surface of the adhesive. DO NOT MACHINE WASH OR DRY.

HOW TO CLEAN

 Hold one bra cup in the palm of your hand and wet the adhesive surface with warm water.

 Add 2 or 3 drops of mild, non-moisturizing liquid soap. We recommend Nu Wash, our cleanser.

 Using your fingertips in a circular motion gently lather the soap. AVOID USING your fingernails, as they can tear the adhesive.

RINSING

 Use warm water to remove all residue.

 Shake off excess water and let the bra cups air dry.

 DO NOT USE A TOWEL.

STORAGE

 When your NuBra is completely dry, place it in its original case to prevent dust or lint from gathering on the adhesive.

 Keep in a cool, dry place and avoid direct sunlight.

 With proper care, your NuBra will last for many wears.

See our video for details.

Q

HOW DO I STORE MY NUBRA?

A

Storing your NuBra is just as important as cleaning it. Each package comes with a protective plastic shell that doubles as storage, and keeps your NuBra safe until the next time you wish to wear it.

 After cleaning your NuBra, make sure that it is completely dry. Air drying is recommended (DO NOT MACHINE OR BLOW DRY).

 Place it in its original plastic case to prevent dust or lint from gathering on the adhesive.

 Keep in a cool, dry place and avoid direct sunlight.

 With proper care, your NuBra will last for many wears.

See our video for details.

Q

HOW MANY WEARS CAN I GET OUT OF EACH NUBRA?

A

NuBra is intended to be used over and over. The life of the adhesive depends on your skin type, how well you prepare before wearing NuBra, how you store it, and how well the adhesive is maintained. But with the right care your NuBra should last as long as a regular bra.

Q

HOW DO I MAKE SURE MY NUBRA IS AUTHENTIC?

A

NuBra is the patented, original strapless, adhesive bra since 2002 — but with all the generic copycats out there, how do you know it's an authentic NuBra product? Here are a few key things to look for:

 THE PACKAGE: Authentic NuBra products have distinctive boxes that are colour-coded to help you find the product that will give you the support and coverage you need.

 THE TRADEMARK: Every genuine NuBra product has the logo stamped on it. For example, our bras have the logo on the inside of each cup.

 THE PATENT NUMBER: Look for the patent number printed on our super-secure clips.

 MADE IN THE USA: NuBras are made in the USA.
