Know About the Different Types of Concealed Carry for Women


A few weeks earlier, I read a beautiful quote about carrying concealed weapon. It goes something like this: carrying a gun isn’t supposed to be comfortable, it is supposed to be a comfort. Yes, knowing the fact that you are protected all the times is comforting in its own ways, but there are certain changes and adjustments that you need to make while carrying a concealed weapon.  There are certain times when carrying a weapon may be uncomfortable or cause a little bit of inconvenience, but it is something that comes with the territory. After a few weeks there would be time, when you would feel naked without your gun pressing against the body and, God forbid, if you have to use it one day to protect yourself, carrying a weapon in a stylish Concealed Women Purse will all be worth it. Now, apart from the concealed carry purses, there are several other options that can be explored. Let us go through them one by one:

  1. Belt or the Waist Carry

One of the most common and most preferred form of concealed carry for women is a belt or waist carry. In this method, the gun is close to you and the grip is in the best position for an easy grasp and smooth draw. Belt carry or waist carry is also comfortable as there isn’t anything extra that you have to wear. With the help of the uniquely designed gun holster, it provides you enhanced security and easy access to the gun. Moreover, this kind of concealed carry can be easily complemented with various attire, such as skirts, shorts and trousers. 

  1. IWB or In the Waistaband Concealed Carry

The IWB concealed carry comes with a clip that can be easily attached to the waistband and the holster simply slips down to the inside your trousers. This method is quite popular among the women shooters as it is only the butt of the gun that needs the coverage and the firearm is easily accessible. The butt of the gun can be easily covered by the regular women’s shirt and the pants can easily stretch to accommodate the weapon. It is better to carry the IWB holster on your strong side so that you can have an easy draw.

  1. Undergarment Holsters

When you are wearing shorts, sweat pants, dress, slacks, skirt or dress pants without a belt, you need a Gun Holster that would allow you to carry your gun without the obvious printing. And in such situations, nothing is better than undergarment holsters. Usually, these kinds of holsters are manufactured from surgical grade elastic that are sewn into the regular undergarments. 


  1. Bra Holsters

Bra holsters are designed in such a way that they can be easily attached to the center of the bra, between the two cups. When you are wearing any blouse, sweater or shirt, these holsters provide easy access to the gun. Now, there are two types of bras holsters; in one method, the holster is clasped in the center, the barrel and the handle is tucked under the underwire of the bra. In the other method, the holster is clipped outside the cup and you get a better draw.

Other than these, there are several other concealed carry as well, such as briefcases and planners, concealed carry purse, fanny pack style, pocket holster, ankle and thigh holster, underarm holster along with belly bands and underwraps. Stay tuned with us if you want to know more about them.
