I received my NuBra last week and I finally got a chance to do a review this weekend! As a reference, my bra size is 30A. However, the NuBra is made for people with band sizes 32-36, and according to bra size conversions, to get an equivalent size in a different cup you must increase your band size and decrease your cup size. Thus, a 30A is equivalent to a 32AA so I purchased the NuBra 'Super Padded' in AA.
OK! Now that we're done with all that mumbo-jumbo, I'll keep this short and sweet for you guys :)
PS. Click to enlarge the photos.
Pretty simple packaging- just a small box which included the NuBra itself in a plastic cradle (doubling as an awesome travel case), cleaning instructions, and other product styles. Nothing too shnazzy- just the way I like it.
The NuBra 'Super Padded' is made out of 30% Polyester, 30% Polyurethane Foam, and 40% Silicone Adhesive. Compared to my silicone bra, this one feels like nothing. It really is very light weight, and this colour (mocha) matches my skin tone almost perfectly. Inspecting it closely, I can see no flaws in the adhesive, and both cups are smooth and symmetrical. There is a clip in the middle to keep the cups together.
The adhesive on the NuBra is quite sticky. It's not as sticky as double-sided 3M industrial tape, but pretty sticky. For best results, you really have to attach them to your boobs in only one or two tries. Otherwise, your skin cells adhere to the adhesive and the bra looses stickiness. It takes about 5 peel-offs for it to lose optimal stickiness, and you have to wash it for it to be sticky again.
You really have to practise to see which position looks best on your boobs. Took me about 5 tries to figure out where I should put it, but once you remember, the next time is easy. It stays really well even with a lot of movement. I've jumped, twirled, stretched, did jumping jacks, jiggled upside down, you name it. These bad boys stayed where they're supposed to. It also gives me a fuller look which is a pleasant result. The clip in the middle can definitely help in giving you more cleavage, but it would be better if you already have say, a B cup- for me, I didn't get much cleavage since my breast tissue is already lacking.
I can barely feel the cups on my skin. There is no tightness and no stretching when move around every which way. When I peel them off, it didn't hurt at all, and there was no adhesive residue stuck onto my skin.
I've seen the NuBra retail over $90 here in Canada, so at msrp they do not come cheap. However, there are various places online where you can get it for less than half that price! For example, Drugstore.com is selling the featerlite version for only $30! in cupsizes A/B/C/D. Nubra.net (not sure if it's official store) is selling the Super Padded (same as featherlite but more padded, the one that I got) for $39.99 in AA/A/B but I got mine off eBay for $31.95 from this seller (bengc) who has great feedback and reviews. So all in all, if you do your research, this bra is quite affordable.

Overall: I really like it! I would definitely recommend this NuBra 'Super Padded'. It sticks well, looks great and feels like nothing. On top of that, it it makes my boobs look bigger. Now who on the itty bitty titty committee doesn't want that? ;)
