When they ask you to "pick on" someone...

Hilarious effect for adult audiences! (This is one of those effects that is meant for a very specific audience and occasion. It is NOT SUITABLE for children, please.)

Ask for a male volunteer from your audience. Two handkerchiefs are tied together, the knot is tucked (discreetly and tastefully) into the front of the volunteer's shirt, and you and your volunteer each hold the tip of a handkerchief. You tell your audience that, on the count of three, you and your volunteer are going to pull on the handkerchiefs, making them pass right through the volunteer's body without harming him a bit. But when you each pull on a handkerchief, a BRASSIERE appears, tied between the handkerchiefs! It's a silly surprise that will make everyone laugh, including your volunteer!

This trick is also funny if you use it on yourself. For example, you could pretend to have trouble handling the tied silks plus other items, and so you tuck the silks into your shirt to get them out of the way while you do something else. When you take the silks out of your shirt, the bra will be seen tied between them.

This trick is also called 20th Century Bra.

Performance Ideas   Performance Ideas:

We STRONGLY recommend that you please use an adult male volunteer. You want the effect to be ridiculous and totally nonoffensive.

You can also do the effect using YOURSELF as the volunteer.

You can also replace the built-in brassiere with a bra you make yourself, a bra with THREE cups, to make the effect even more ridiculous.


What you'll get when you buy this trick   Here's what you'll get:

  • Baffling Bra scarf set with built-in brassiere
  • printed instructions
And that's all you need!
Handkerchiefs are silk, and measure 18" diagonally.


History of this magic effect   History and Trivia:

The Baffling Bra effect was created by Howard Brooks in the 1930s, and is a variation of Frank Ducrot's 20th Century Silks, invented in 1900.

Though bras have been worn by women for thousands of years, the first bra design to be patented was in 1914 by a female American fashion designer named Mary Phelps-Jacobs, who worked under the name Caresse Crosby. Her design was, in fact, two silk handkerchiefs tied together!
