Requirements: a willing participant, breasts enclosed in a bra, dexterous fingers and nerves of steel.

Optional: an agreeable friend to practise on.


Warm your hands. Cold hands are not sexy or subtle.

Slowly place your hand under her top. If you are redirected, take it like a gentleman. If your participant seems willing, linger for a moment at first base, then make a move to locate her bra strap when the mood seems right.


Determine if the bra is back- or front-fastening. A back-fastening bra will have about 10cm of thicker fabric in the centre of the strap. Find the spot where the two layers overlap; this is where it clasps. If you cannot feel anything at the back, then feel between her breasts for a front-fastening clasp.

*If you still haven’t successfully located the fastening, you could possibly have a pullover sports bra on your hands. Do not be discouraged and bare your primary mission in mind. Simply lift
it up and over.


For a back-fastening bra: place fingers on either side of the overlapping fabric and pinch together. This should release the little hooks.
