A woman’s contours and features also contribute to the gun printing under their garments. Many holsters require the use of a belt to hold the holster, and many women typically donâ€™t wear a belt. All of these issues leave women with minimal options of how best to conceal carry. So what is the Best Holster for Women?!
One option we have found works well at Just Holster It is a Bellyband holster – not your traditional scratchy fabric bellyband, but your soft neoprene material that is comfortable.

Negatives to Bellybands is in many cases the gun can sit deep making it a little more difficult to get to. Many of the more inexpensive Bellyband holsters are made of cheap rough elastic material. Another issue is that when you draw your handgun, the holster will collapse because it is typically a fabric material and this makes it more difficult to reholster.

In addition to these types of holsters we have the Pistol Wear, which allows the holster to sit deeper and has a strap over the gun that keeps the holster more secure. This results in helping new carriers feel more comfortable carrying a gun.
