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.

Flashbang Holster 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!

I have two Flashbang holsters, one for my Ruger LCP and one for my Sig P238. The Flashbang is very comfortable to wear for long periods of time and you cannot see it through a shirt (unless the shirt is maybe see-through or thin). The molded plastic shell holds the firearm firmly in place and keeps the hammer and trigger covered until you are ready to draw, which is very easy. It comes with 3 straps of different lengths, all with several holes to customize to any bra you may have. With women's clothing being so tight and lacking pockets, this really is one of the best concealed carry solutions for women. Both holsters arrived within a week.

I highly recommend the bra holster. It's definitely better hidden than a belt holster & less bulky.
Gun Goddess also has outstanding customer service.

I was nervous to try this product but am glad I did. It's really comfortable and easy to conceal.

I carry a Glock 42 and was a little hesitant to try this holster due to my smaller B cup size. It doesn't work with all my bras but having a smaller bust the holster seems to work best with padded bras with an underwire. It took a little practice getting it in and out of the holster but watching the videos helped tremendously. I have purchased several concealment holsters and wear all of them depending on the outfit and occasion. The snap does seem to make a small clicking sound sometimes but overall I will definitely wear it when I'm wearing more form fitting clothes that my other holsters don't conceal quite as well.

The Flashbang Holster is just what I've been searching for since I purchased my S&W Bodygaurd a few years ago. Since having my son I am even more determined to keep my family safe from harm and having a holster that my nosey one year old can't easily access is wonderful. I was skeptical at first of it being concealed since I still have a lot of baby fluff, but the holster and my weapon are 100% hidden. The snap is a bit stiff, but it's new and it's reassuring that it won't easily come undone. I love that I was sent a few different lengths of straps, now I know I won't have problems with whatever I wear. Thank you for satisfying my concealment needs!

I purchased the flashbang bra holster for my Glock 26. I also carry a smith and wesson m&p shield. I love this holster so much that I actually chose my second firearm purchase based on whether there was a flashbang bra holster for it. It fits well in my bra and I can carry with the majority of my wardrobe including my snug tank tops. I have been carrying for 10 months and the holster holds the firearm very securely and comfortably.
Practice practice practice drawing to make sure you keep your finger out of the trigger guard until you are on target but, I recommend that regardless of the holster you choose. I also have an appendix carry holster (not flashbang) but it is collecting dust as the flashbang bra holster is my preferred EDC holster because of the comfort and concealability. I wear low rise, tight jeans, no problem like i had with appendix carry.
Gun Goddess has the best service and fastest shipping I have encountered.

This holster is totally convenient, comfortable and concealed under normal everyday clothes. Easy to draw from any position. It is my favorite.

I have been carrying my Springfield XDs 3.3" 9mm in this holster for 4 weeks now and I couldn't be happier with the product. I changed the straps (myself) a few times to see what was most comfortable for me. I ended up using the shortest strap it came with. I have practiced with this holster and I am confident it will have my back, if ever needed. I recommend this to all women. I am currently a nursing student and wear this every day to class, I feel secure knowing that it is concealed and also extremely excessive with jeans, scrubs, workout clothes, etc.

When I first tried the flashbang, it felt like I was going to rip my bra clean off. But after some practice I figured out how to make it fit comfortably high and low. Then learned to draw. I believe that it is so different than ate awhile to get used to , but it is nice little item for carrying.

I was skeptical of this product, to be honest, but had to try it out for myself - and it really does work! My firearm was perfectly concealed despite having smaller than average bust, and it is surprisingly comfortable. Drawing the gun just took a couple of practice tries, but not bad. Perfect for concealed carry.

What an amazing, out of the way, out of sight and invisible way to conceal carry! I purchased a Flash Bang Holster, it sits comfortably in the hollow between and under my breasts. It means that if my shirt is short, it isn't seen on my hip. I am a hugger and no one has looked at me as if to say, "what was that?" It is not only comfortable, but truly concealed. The usability is grand! After a couple of practice rounds, with no ammo, I am able to remove my pistol with ease and confidence. The snap that holds the Flash Bang in place has a roll on the inside, making it impossible to "yank" off. I am in love with my "invisible" Flash Bang!!

Really like this since it is very out-of-the way in your day-to-day lifestyle. Easy to get to and light weight.
Posted by Jackie on 24th Aug 2016
Purchased this holster for my Glock 42. I wanted a holster I could conceal no matter what i was wearing and this holster does exactly that! I am petite and small busted and have had no problems carrying concealed. Recommending this holster to all of my friends!

I love my clingy maxi skirts, but they pose an issue with cc. This holster solves nearly all of my cc wardrobe problems. I did have to try a few of my bras to find the ones that work best with this holster, and also changed to the wider position of bra hooks on my tighter bras to keep the grips of my revolver from poking out of the front of my shirt like a weird 3rd boob, so don't give up if the first one you try isn't quite right. I'm 38C and carry Ruger revolver with Crimson trace grips. Best fit for me so far!

Product is good fits gun perfect but it is uncomfortable as I am small busted. It is very concealed though
Posted by Unknown on 19th Jul 2016
Absolutely love this holster! I wear this every day. It is not noticeable under the majority of my clothes and fits well with most bras. I wear a 38 B and it is very comfortable. I thought it would take a while to get used to it but within 15 minutes of wearing it I didn't even feel it there. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a reliable holster!

I conceal carry every morning and treat my gun like any other accessory. Love this product.
Posted by Priscilla on 29th Jun 2016
I'm barely a B cup and was hesitant to get this holster because I felt my girls would not be big enough to help keep the grip hidden. After doing some research I noticed that most ladies modeling the holster had bigger girls than me but I decided to still purchase it, I can always send it back.
I was pleasantly surprised that I can still wear most of my tops ( not the super body hugging tops) with this holster and there is NOTHING indicating I am carrying! I love it!
Posted by Unknown on 1st Jun 2016
Love this option for conceal carry. It takes a little work to find the best bra to work with it but once you do and get the re holstering down it is a wonderful option.
Posted by Sarah on 4th May 2016
I love it! My bra holster is so comfortable and absolutely a perfect fit for my gun!!!
Posted by MamaBear on 29th Mar 2016
This holster is perfect for concealed carry when I'm not wearing jeans! I can access my gun easily and it stays put when I don't need it. I have a Sig P238 and it fits perfectly.
Posted by Brianna Barber on 21st Mar 2016
I have heard mixed emotions on this product and was very hesitant how it would work for me. I have a glock 42 and this holster is perfect. I have worn it under all types of tops and you can not even notice it's there. Very comfortable and works with every bra I have!
Posted by Unknown on 5th Mar 2016
I have been wearing this holster as my main method of carrying for about 2 years now. I wear size 36C. I carry the Ruger LCP.
It stays hidden under most shirts, as long as they aren't too tight or thin. Often if I can't wear it with a particular shirt, I can get away with it if I have a tank top underneath it. I can wear it with most outfits, even when the shirt is too short, or my pants are too tight, for other carry options. No one has a clue it is there!
Over time it stretched out the band on my bra (I do buy cheap bras, not sure if the same thing would happen with more sturdy bras). Sometimes it is squeaky, in a quiet room you can hear my holster when I move. Of course you can't tell what it is, it sounds like my bra is squeaking. But loud nonetheless. Also, if I get sweaty, the holster starts to stink! I can avoid this by occasionally putting deodorant on the part that touches my body. Also, if the shirt is a little tight, you can see a big dot (the snap) between my boobs. I think a small piece of Velcro would be less conspicuous, but also maybe less secure.
Overall, this is a good holster, but you need different options, because it won't work with everything.

I found this to be the the most comfortable and convenient holster for a women. especially one that has to dress professionally. I highly recommend. You don't even notice it's there.

Freakin amazing!!! I ordered the left handed flash bang bra holster, and honestly couldn't have been happier. I did my reviews and my research and when I finally came across this page I couldn't wait to get it in the mail. I had my concerns and worries but I put it to the unlimite test when I wrore it to my daughters softball practice. I'm totally involved with the exercises and the conditioning I put the girls thu and not once did I ever feel like it was about to fall out. I even forgot I had it on. That's how comfortable it is!! I'm also happy it came with the different size straps. The buttons are super heavy duty it was even hard at times to take off! Definitely worth every single penny.
Posted by Lin on 2nd Feb 2016
I love this holster!!! It's completely concealed and very comfortable. Rarely use any of my other holsters now that I have the Flashbang. I recommend this holster to all my female friends and recommend purchasing from Gun Goddess :-)
Posted by Nyx on 13th Jan 2016
Depending on the bra I use, this is surprisingly comfortable. It seems like the bras I have that are more fitted work better. I wanted this option available to me in case I am wearing lower riding jeans and cnt conceal well in my waistband. I also got a corset holster, which I really like, but it can be hot in the warmer months. This is the perfect solution and doesn't make me over heat! My Nano clips in and will NOT come out unless I want it to. Very good product. Simple and effective.
Posted by Kelly on 16th Sep 2015
It was very uncomfortable and awkward at first. Once I got used to it I love wearing it. I got really angry at the snap because I could never get it to work right but then I figured out that had a "lock" on it which I love the idea of it. It works perfectly with the holster as well.
The holster fits my gun perfectly as it has an added laser on it and to make things more difficult, I'm a lefty. However, this was the one site that all that wasn't a challenge. I exchanged a few email with the staff and they were very helpful and friendly. The last email exchange was because my holster had taken longer to ship out so I was inquiring about when it will be shipped out. They informed me they were sorry and that it should had been shipped out already. They also told me that they put in a note for the holster to be shipped directly to me instead of it going from Texas to NY then to Cali. She contacted the distributor and then informed me it would be shipped out that day and I would have it a few days later. and I did!
I would highly recommend this holster and this company!

I love this holster! My biggest fear carrying my pistol was imprinting through my clothing. That does not happen with the Flasbang. I also love that i do not have to purse carry to be comfortable sitting down. Fantastic!
Posted by Ellen on 30th Jul 2015
when I first received my Flashbang bra holster I watched the videos because I had read the reviews about how hard the snap was. I thought the snap was a snap! pun intended! I wore the holster around the house (no gun) for the first day and honestly forgot I was even wearing it! Then I wore it (with gun) when I went walking on a public walking path. For walking I wear tight walking shorts and a snug tank and honestly you couldn't tell I was carrying! I have the Flashbang holster for a Ruger LCP .380. I love this holster! It is comfortable, easy, and as far as I can tell, never show imprinting. One thing I did figure out, it doesn't work with all my bras, so I need to work with it and the other straps that come with it to see if by changing the straps/snap it will work with my other bras as well. Love it and highly recommend it! Oh, I love that it is a US product as well!
