... flick the lever for release

Am I the only one who finds the one handed bra release a tricky manoevre? [mental note to self : don't ask questions that leave me open to personal ridicule]

The guitar capo is a device that fixes around the neck of a guitar to raise the tone.[insert punchline here]. The beauty of this device is that it holds under a lot of tension (it has to to get a good note), but it's released very quickly via a lever - which is under no tension at all!

Confused - click the link for a bra revelation.

... but with breasts.

I propose that the bra could then be removed by simply flicking the lever with the one hand - leaving the other hand free for other purposes. ;)

Okay, as long as it's comfortable and not liable to undo itself...

Only if I can get a visual "Waah-Waah" effect.

I'm picturing a rollerblade-like fastening system. Zzzzzt click.

Right, of course . . . because we all know that a woman's top priority in buying undergarments is making sure that they can be removed by someone *else* as quickly as possible.

The classic "boys-will-be-boys" sexual harrassment technique of bra strap snapping could also have a lot more serious consequences if the target was wearing one of these.

Anyone tried Velcro?
-- DrCurry, Jun 10 2003

I'm not sure Velcro would be able to hold under tension... the forces may be too great (depending on the cup size of course)

Velcro? This might cause an unexplainable, worldwide increase in the use of the Heimlich maneuver, especially so if used in front-closure bras.

//fixes around the neck//

So, this bra fastens around the neck, does it? Sounds like a great new offering for Boondoggle Industries.

fastens round the upper chest, like a normal bra. The only change I'm suggesting is to the way it fastens.
