Hope this post fits here...anyway:

So this magician from the UK, Paul Zenon, in his special 'Turning tricks', has this sequence/montage thing where he divines the bra-sizes of different girls. Is this a trick? I would love to know how he does it...don't get me wrong, I just think it could be some excellent relief (comedy relief) as a running gag in a high-tension close-up or parlour act.

Does any-one know where he might have come up with this? Or is it just practise?

Maybe he's just a conasseaur of sorts. Smile

Spend some time in Victoria's Secret, and get yourself a Swami (boon tip) gimmick.
Just my suggestions...

It's a trick - he uses a palm Smile
I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I only lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three. Elayne Boosler

Ba-Dum-Chhhhh! You could pull a "Larry the Cable Guy" and set up a stool with some keychains and guess their age by feeling their breasts. Or in your case, guessing bra size.

I have an effect in the Off-Color Series of Mentalism (also in the new Prisn book) where I mentally devine the measurements of an attractive lady from the audience. Check this month's Genii magazine for how how to order the books.

I have to say ...

Paul Zenon is my favorite magician, above Derren Brown. His bra-size divination is my favorite effect of his or anyone else's. How's it done?

Dunno ... But I discussed it with my girlfriend and she said it was easy to estimate a woman's statistics. I asked her to teach me ... but we never got round to it for some reason...

Still, it is possible that as men, most of us have little or no experience of wearing bra's or understanding their sizes and fittings. It is possible with daily experience, practice, and with a woman's eye, it could actually be quite easy to do this effect. So if anyone gets lessons from their girlfriends on divining/guessing bra sizes and then finds it easy to do, then please let us all know on this thread, so a) we can all get lessons and have a crack at it and b) so we know that we've cracked it!

If anyone ever finds out please PM me. Zenon was not using any swami gimmicks, nothing was written down on camera ... it looked very clean. I dearly wish I could do that effect ...

So in answer, yes I think it could be just practice - developing expert knowledge, perhaps with a little tuition.

PS That was my first post! I hope it was worthwhile(ish)

Okay the size...32...34...36..and so on, is measurement which includes her back to the breast. The more slender a girl is it makes sense that they will have a smaller measurement. Think of waist sizes in perspective, and it will give you an idea if you were to wrap a measuring tape around someone in that area. The cup size is what describes the fullness..or shape. B would be fairly proportioned and round while DD would be quite huge.

There now I've gone and educated you guys on the birds and the bees.

How about the famous knicker size devining trick?

Obviously not 'cold reading'...are we aiming for 'warm reading'?

Expereince helps! One of teh most famous bra-shops in London take pride in knowing the exact number as the customer walks in. Guess it would take some field work to get to that level!
Could you manage to get assistance from friend(s) in the audience if the athmosphere was right?

Posted by daffydoug in the some corny jokes....it should help! Smile

Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, and H are the letters used to define bra sizes?



If you have wondered why, but couldn't figure out what the letters stood for, it is about time you became informed!
(A} Almost Boobs...



{B} Barely there.



{C} Can't Complain!



{D} Dang!



{DD} Double dang!



{E} Enormous!



{F} Fake.



{G} Get a Reduction.
Double posters should be shot!

No really!!

From what I understand that is so far off the mark! Smile

Just a thought....obviously they only show him when he gets it right. They didn't show the times he messed up. Don't get me wrong, he might not have messed it up, I'm not sure of how he did it!
