Ladies' Belt/Waist Holsters?

    Recently, out of the blue, my wife asked me to start researching holster options for her. As background, she has her Texas CHL and carries a 2" Ruger SP101--in a little red L.L. Bean ditty bag. I've kept up the drumbeat for on-body carry options (although I don't always practice what I preach) and I think it's struck home.

    She doesn't typically wear belts, although she understands the value for concealed carry. Her attire is usually jeans and an untucked polo, or variations. My lady is very pleasantly "hippy", so this is a critical design element.

    I know about the DeSantis offset paddle. Suggestions for belt/paddle hosters to meet this need much appreciated.

    SAD, I have seen the Galco Lady Gunsite and the Kramer belt holster used in skul to good effect. TFLer Glock-o-matic's lovely young bride has used the Kramer while carrying concealed when visiting me (they live in Illinois where defending yourself is frowned upon). For everyday, I would think that a paddle would be more practical for a female. IMLTKO, of course.

    There are lots of gun orientated ladies bags on the market today that have great accessibility and very discrete.

    I'd carry a handbag if it weren't for the guys saying lewd comments about my legs. :D

    In my experience

    at DTI classes, Vicki Farnam has the women in the classes use their holsters forward of their hips, in the appendix position. This seems to work great for the ladies. Since your wife doesn't wear a belt, how about the quality Alessi Talon or APX, in muzzle forward cant(made for crossdraw), clipped IWB in the appendix position. Works sans belt.
