Recently we added a corset holster for sale in The Well Armed Woman Store. We get a lot of questions about them so I thought it would be helpful to share my thoughts.
First, this corset holster is so soft! It is a silky material, yet it has compression characteristics. The slight compression not only provides a solid platform to hold your gun in place, but it also provides some nice shaping in your midsection! Its structure helps to give a feminine shape without being too rigid like other corsets can be.
Of course, you know this holster is there but wow, it truly is comfortable!
One of the things I love about the corset holster is that it allows you to carry your gun in what I call the “sweet spot” or your midsection. This provides the best access, should you need it. It allows you to holster your gun in a sublayer of the compression fabric that presses the gun toward your body, which keeps the grip tight to your body and minimizes bulges.
Don’t be afraid of the hook and eye closure! There are a couple rows for adjusting and, with the give in the material, it creates a great fit. Just make sure to follow the sizing instructions on the website.
Another great feature is that this corset holster has two holster pockets, so carrying a spare magazine couldn’t be easier. This is important as many women find carrying an extra magazine very cumbersome with standard holsters. You can also carry everyday essentials such as a cell phone, money or credit cards.
Not having a holstered gun inside your pants makes everyday tasks a breeze! Best of all you don’t have to think about where your firearm will go when using the bathroom! Hallelujah!
I choose to wear it a little higher to hide the grip a little better under my bust, however, I hear from a lot of women who wear it lower like a belly band. The holster is very generous and can hold a gun up to 7.4″. My Glock 43 fits great!
One final thought: make sure you practice drawing (unloaded) from all of the holsters you use. This holster provides a more “deep concealment” with the grip not fully exposed SO practicing accessing and getting a good firing grip on your gun quickly is important.
I hope this helps answer any questions you may have had!
