This holster is slim, comfortable and adjustable in so many ways!

The first in my designer series I have named “Empowered”.  As I considered what this word means to you and to me, it was clear that our empowerment is reflected on many levels of who we are. It manifests itself in so many different ways, both large and small, obvious and subtle. The intricacy of my Paisley inspired pattern and its gorgeous colors reflects this. It is complex, just as we are but all of the intricate details, shapes, and colors come together to create something more beautiful! And the Tiffany Blue color? Gorgeous! Did you know this color represents the feminine, sophistication, energy, wisdom, and wholeness. The perfect color for the Empowered Design.

I hope that as you wear these holsters, you remember what the design represents and that somehow, it affirms you. As you holster your firearm, your partner in your self-protection to your clothing or body, you are reminded of just how beautiful you are!  Be safe and be Empowered! ~ Carrie Lightfoot

Key functional features:

  • No Bulge Ultra-Slim Profile: Our slim and minimalist designs means only you will know it’s there! Our recessed clip makes this holster lay flatter than any other and minimizes the bulge! This also prevents scratches to your barrel that are common with traditional clips or screws.
  • Smooth comfort: We don’t need anymore plastic in our pants than is necessary! Our holster is trimmed to remove any extra kydex and smoothed to perfection so no irritating sharp or protruding edges!
  • Our Double Sweat Shield protects both your gun and your clothes from moisture and dirt.
  • Wear any shirt you want! Our deep tuckable clip works on any type of waistband (with or without a belt -will fit a 1 1/2 or 1 3/4 inch belt) so you can tuck in ANY shirt
  • Decide How Low: our Low Ride Adjustable Clip lets you raise or lower the ride height to fit your body and clothing best. This keeps the grip low to the waistband for a woman’s shorter waist. (smaller gun holsters have less adjustability)
  • You can adjust the cant to just the perfect angle for the perfect draw for you. We include Vibra-Tite VC-3 Threadmate FREE to help you keep cant adjustment tight.
  • It’s even Ambidextrous!
  • Holds your gun securely so it stays put! Made of .080 Kydex to give you the ultimate retention.

Don’t wear a belt? Problem solved!

Designer Series IWB Holsters-Empowered ulticlip

Add The Ultimate Clip for even more versatility

Don’t wear a belt? Problem solved! This ultimate holster clip changes in the waistband carry forever! Its revolutionary clamp design has no need for a belt or any other secondary means of support to provide its retention. Now you can wear just about any in the waistband holster that currently has a clip (Screw on or retention holster clips) with ANY WAISTBAND, regardless of it’s thickness. (Note: a heavier firearm clipped onto a thinner waistband, may sag and not provide proper retention) It offers over 10 times the retention and can clip while increasing conceal-ability with it’s short clip lever so less clip is showing on your waistband.

    I got the entire Empowered Designer holster set, and it is beautiful!! Plus, the holsters are all comfortable and functional. I admit that I am petite and chubby, which is not a good combination for on body concealed carry. Most holsters do not fit me well, and they are very uncomfortable. But I loved these the minute I put them on. I canted the IWB firearm and magazine holsters forward so they fit perfectly, and they don’t dig into my skin. They allow me to get a combat grip on my Glock 43 during a draw, plus I can re-holster safely, which a lot of holsters do not allow me to do. These holsters also have a pretty good level of retention on the firearm. I turned mine upside down in the holster and shook it, which I don’t recommend that anyone do, but the firearm did not fall out. This is everything you would want in a holster: beauty, comfort, function and safety. Finally, incredibly beautiful holsters for women. Buy this as a gift for yourself or for someone else. You will not regret it! Well done, TWAW!
