The previous winners were the highlight of the morning with stories of their transformationand journey at Curves Malaysia. This served as a run up to the Curvette of the Year
Campaign 2016 , which was launched in early May this year. Following the huge success of
its 2015 campaign, with its 6 finalists getting a makeover, a photoshoot and a Facebook
voting contest that went viral, Curves Malaysia plans a bigger and bolder campaign this
year. Finalists will document their journey on social media and as a lead up, several
workshops on healthy eating, dressing right, talks on women’s health and fitness activities
will be organised by Curves Malaysia. The “Morning of Empowerment” is one such workshop that has started the ball rolling for this exciting campaign.

The morning also focused on dressing right for an individual’s body type, in partnership with
Flow and Neubodi. Flow, the fashion line for curvy women, showed guests how to dress right by defining the norm and pushing the bar higher encompassing all body types . Whilst
Neubodi, the lingerie brand addressed the need for women to be fitted right to feel confident
about their inner beauty.

Four members from Curves centres around Klang Valley were handpicked to be part of a
makeover by Flow and Neubodi.Tengku Faira Edna Iskandariah, Eshwari Vasuthewan,
Cindy Lim Sew Li and Diviya Mohan, had a before and after session, and at the reveal, each
saw an immediate difference of how they looked and felt.

Eshwari Vasuthewan quoted, “ I have worked hard at Curves to gain a new body that I
simply love, and I’m pleased that Neubodi’s innerwear further enhances my posture, and I
walk with more confidence.”

Tengku Faira Edna added, “I wanted to look more stylish even though I wear a hijab, as
Curves has certainly given me a healthier body and outlook to life. At the makeover, Flow
urged me to try on bolder colours, and to my surprise, at the reveal, I looked younger and
felt more vibrant.”

Healthy breakfast, lots of exciting success stories, encouragement and countless photo
snaps continued well after the workshops at The Society in Bangsar South.
