More often than not, it's easier for men to dress around their concealed carry kit than women. Despite the efforts of holster manufacturers to slim down concealed carry rigs, it's always difficult to blend a holster and gun underneath form-fitting pants, shirts and dresses. The Flashbang bra holster gives women another option for concealed carry holster.
The bra holster is a unique design from Flashbang that features a Kydex clamshell that is molded around the slide, upper frame and trigger guard of the carry pistol. The shell is secured to the bra by a wraparound strap that secures the firearm just beneath the bra.
To draw the gun, reach up underneath the shirt, securely grasp the grip of the gun and pull straight down to release the pistol from its clamshell. The strap will retain the Kydex shell to the bra and the gun will be ready to fire.
Due to where the gun sits underneath the bra, the user is never exposed to the barrel of the firearm during a correct draw.
The bra holster is low profile, so it allows women to dress however they want while still offering them a safe and comfortable location for a concealed firearm.
In addition to the Flashbang bra holster, the company also makes what it calls the "Marilyn holster." Instead of sitting in the center of the chest, the Marilyn bra holster is designed to be worn on the side of the bra and drawn through the neckline of a dress or a blouse.
The Marilyn offers an additional holster option for women who tend to wear dresses or exercise apparel and are looking for a safe and secure carry option. The Marilyn works well with both a standard bra or a sports bra.
In addition to the Flashbang and Marilyn bra holsters, Flashbang Holsters also provides a number of waist holsters designed specifically for women, following the Flashbang Holster's motto of "By women, for women." The Flashbang holster retails for $50.
