Anything New in Women's Holsters?


March 26, 2014, 11:18 PM
The only thread I could find on women's holsters is several years old... So I'll start a new one...
Is there anything new in women's holsters for concealed carry? Living in Texas, I don't want any kind of print from the grip so I have been using a bulldog for my 380, but I want to move up to my nano and I can't find anything that works for me and fits my nano.... I have tried the flashbang but I look like I have three instead of two... and I'm slender enough that if I wear baggy jeans or slacks it looks weird. I've only had my CHL for a couple of years but still have not found the "right" holster.
I'm thinking about going to cross-carry or SOTB, but since I have a drawerful of discarded (unused) holsters, I don't want to invest in more. Has anyone found a good one? :confused:

If you have tried the flash bang what about one of the others that that company offers such as the Marilyn. You might do a u tube search for channels as I have seen c hannels where ladies show how they carry plus ther are several woment that manufacture holsters specifically for ladies.

My wife is quite fond of her High Noon Double Jeopardy IWB rig for her CZ 2075 RAMI. Pretty customize-able for the perfect cant/height. It is listed for the Nano. (

In Natural with her CZ P-01. Yes, that IS her gun. ;) (

The clips can be set up for standard IWB in the slots, or for Tuckable, many choices for height on both clips. (

That's just my recommendation just from my wife's experience.

Welcome to the forum.

It is generally unadvised to carry a firearm SOB or small of the back. Something relatively heavy and dense on your spinal cord doesn't do well for falls. But anycase.

Carry for women is getting better, still not near the men's market yet though. White Hat holsters came out with a Microtuk line for small firearms and/or smaller people (ie women). You could take a look at those as well.

A snazzy new holster & company for sub compacts like the Beretta Nano & Pico .380acp is .
They are a Florida based business that sells pocket holsters that can be converted to ankle or body armor carry rigs. :D
note; Sticky Holsters are made in the USA & the firm offers a military/sworn LE officer discount. :)

I don't own any at this time but if I were to buy a new Nano or SIG P290RS 9mm, Id consider it. They also sell mag holders that can be pocket or belt style.

I checked the Sticky Holsters website, the nylon rigs can be converted to IWB too.
That's handy. :D

One of the challenges for most women is the flare of the hip vs. the narrow waist for IWB/OWB carry. Most makers don't do anything more than take a product designed for snake hipped guys and put what they think is an appealing color or pattern on it (kinda ignorant of the demographic and condescending as well).

Women and holster makers should read Cathy's information on holsters over on Cornered Cat.

Mitch Rosen makes the "Nancy Special"

Kramer offers some female specific models

My wife actually helps design my holsters. She is always the test subject when it comes to new designs. I know that if I make something that is comfortable and conceals well on her hips, it will work well for just about anyone else.

The last one isn't just for women only. Some of us old boys can't belly band or carry IWB as well as we would like, a shoulder holster is gaining ground as a choice under an untucked shirt. It would mean keeping it buttoned up.

5.11 also has gun shirts, they ain't cheap:

Uncle Mike's has just come out with a convertible IWB, too.

It's not all about leather and kydex.
