The Flashbang bra holster has definitely changed the way women carry their guns!
How does it secure the gun?
The Flashbang is a thermo-plastic, molded clamshell that snaps into place over small pistols and revolvers. It tucks underneath a bra band, where it is secured in place by both the band itself and a soft suede strap, that snaps around the center portion of the bra between the bra cups. The open-bottom design of the holster allows the gun to be drawn simply by pulling straight down on the grip of the gun, while the suede strap keeps the holster securely attached to the bra.
How do you draw from it?
To draw the gun, use your weak-side hand to pull the hem of your shirt away from your body. Then pull straight down on the firearm with your shooting hand. Because of the way the Flashbang holster is made, the trigger guard is fully covered until the gun is pulled away from the body while at the same time allowing a full combat grip on the firearm. This technique also presents the attacker with a major distraction while allowing you to access and utilize your firearm.
What about different bra sizes?
The Flashbang bra holster comes with three straps of different lengths to accommodate the majority of bras. Each strap has a directional snap that allows you to quickly put the holster on and take it off, but prevents the holster from being forcibly removed or accidentally knocked loose.
Is it concealable?
Because the gun actually rests partially inside the bra cup, the only portion that's visible is the grip. Although a larger bust line improves concealment, a looser shirt with a pattern on it or a bit of fullness can help a woman with a more athletic physique to conceal the firearm. Some bras may also work better than others, which is why the different strap sizes are included, so you can use the one that fits your bra style best. The straps can be easily changed using a Phillips head screwdriver. As with all holster options, whether this type of holster works for you, your circumstances or your body composition or size, is a personal decision.
What about Colored straps?
Your Flashbang bra holster comes with a set of 3 tan-colored straps. You have the option to add colored straps, a pack of 3 different sizes in the following colors: red, pink, black, teal, lime and purple. Get colored straps here.

Why we love it: It's a bra holster! What's not to love?

Frequently Asked Questions/Tips & Tricks!
I don't see my firearm model listed. Can it fit into another holster model?
Unfortunately, no. While some firearms from the same or different manufacturers may appear the same, the holsters are molded for the exact firearm you will be carrying.
Can you make a custom holster for me?
My Flashbang Holster is "riding low" and doesn't stay in place. How can this be resolved?
Please watch the videos under the "Video" tab to see how you can either "high carry" or "low carry".
The snap on my holster is hard to unsnap. How can I resolve this?
The safety snaps on the holsters are directional to keep them from ever coming undone accidentally. They can be a little tricky, especially when new. They do loosen up, so work them a few times. if necessary, use a screw driver to pry on the tab end at first. Make sure you watch the "Snap Tutorial" under the videos tab!

Ruger LCP with Crimson Trace: I had a little bit of trouble with the ordering but Athena helped me out quickly and I got my FlashBang earlier than expected. Very easy to adjust the leather strap and the instructions for fitting it under your bra and breast are very clear. I wish I could carry at work. Taking it off and putting it on before and after work is not a lot of fun but it is easy and well worth it to be the sheepdog and not the sheep. Thank you.

I have carried concealed for over 25 years in my purse/vehicle. The only reason I didn't give the FlashBang Bra Holster 5 stars was because of the sweating factor ... the plastic is a wee bit warm in my climate (NM) during the summertime. I am going to try the moleskin that's been recommended. I carry a revolver and since my hands are quite large for a woman, I have a custom grip on it, so its a little bit harder to conceal, but with the majority of my blouses/jacket combo's NO ONE can tell. I did have to create splices in my dresses & slips so I could reach the weapon without too much trouble. I'm liking "wearing concealed" instead of "carrying concealed", and my purse isn't so dog-gone heavy anymore.

I love it. It's hard to conceal a gun with mostof the clothes I wear but this lets me do just that!

This is my second flashback holster and I continue to think it is a great product. Some have complained about the snap, but once you look at it and see there is only one way that it fits, it works great. Very comfortable and very discreet.

I love my new bra holster! I am new at concealed carry and I was never comfortable carrying in my purse and my firearm was always visible if worn on my hip. I spent several hours wearing my new holster and practicing with no problems. It does slip a bit when I bend over but it is easily adjusted. When my husband came home I tried to get him to see anything different on me and he was shocked when I showed him because he could not see a thing. I have already recommended this to friends and family.

I am finding that I really like this holster! It's weird to get used to though. I have a...um...full chest. It hides my Glock 27 very nicely. The first time I wore it in public, I felt like everyone could see it, and checked my reflection frequently. I'm wearing it to the office now, and no one is the wiser.
There is a downside. If you have a lot of belly, and you sit down a lot, you're going to be very uncomfortable! I don't mean to offend here. I am a shrinking, heavy girl; so I know what I'm talking about. I lost some weight over the past 2 weeks, and it makes a big difference.
Some of the other gals have mentioned discomfort from hotter conditions. I haven't had any issues with that so far.
Overall, I really love this holster. It holds my gun securely, and there's no shifting. I hope this is helpful. Oh, and thank you, Athena for all your help!

I really love this product. I have a G26 and I am a rather petite. I was able to carry and wear a rather fitted tank top without it showing. I refer to wear a lightly padded bra so the firearm doesn't show through the bra itself.

The product appeared to be very easy to use/install and looked like a great idea. However, it doesn't install anywhere near as well as shown and it doesn't sit/stay in any position as shown depending on the size of the bra and breast. Hardware is difficult to use, and installation is not easy to figure out. Overall I was very disappointed with the product.

This product fits very well. No slipping, no bulging or rubbing. I would like to see it in different colors; nude or tan. Also, maybe hide the snap a little better. Athena with customer service was very kind and polite. I ordered the wrong holster and she corrected the problem immediately and sent the correct one promptly For my Ruger LCP with Crimson laser.

I purchased this FlashBang Bra Holster for my S&W m&p Shield. Fits my gun perfectly, but it's difficult to get the whole contraption to stay in place. It conceals the gun well under my clothes, nobody has noticed I'm wearing one and drawing the firearm out is really quick and easy. But there are downfalls. To make it stay in your bra and concealable I find you need a padded bra with a TIGHT waistband/underwire. Otherwise the holster will slip down. I find that i have to wear a tight cami tank top over my bra and holster to keep things "in there" better. You have to cram your boobs up and then tuck your gun under the bra wire, bottom of your boobs rest on the holster and not the bra itself. Also, with the plastic being right up against your skin, that area sweats something terrible. I tried to wear this while on a walk with my dogs and the thing moved all over the place. I definitely do not recommend this holster for joggers or active people. Also, like other women said, the snap is industrial strength. Next to impossible to unsnap and snap! Might be a hidden benefit, my sore thumbs aren't sure yet.
