10 ‘Hand Bra’ Photos That Are Making Instagram Great Again

Give these ladies a hand.

No bra? No problem.

Instagram’s hottest bombshells have been making do without their brassieres, and instead using their hands over their bare breasts to cover up. So-called “hand bra-ing” is just about the sexiest D.I.Y. strategy you’ll ever see.

It sounds simple, but there’s heaps of hand bra techniques floating around on the ‘gram. You can opt for the classic and just cusp your hands over your breasts, as masterfully demonstrated by model Ping Hue below. If you prioritize ease, you can just stick one arm over your entire chest, the most popular method by miles.

Below, here’s your master class in “hand bra-ing” from the women who popularized it:
