I own multiple holsters to use when carrying my handgun concealed: inside-the-waistband paddle holster, soft-sided hip holster, and a plastic hip holster. None of them are “bad” but I dislike all of them because they way they sit on my body. With each holster, the firearm is noticeable under my clothes. This is called “printing.” In fall and winter months when a sweater or jacket can be worn, it isn’t quite as noticeable, but summertime (or even fall in Florida) meant not carrying on my body at all.
Enter the Can Can Concealment Holster Company!
Can Can Concealment offers several different styles of “safe, sexy holstering” including those worn around the hips, a full corset style, and two leg garter styles. You can also choose from several accent colors. I ordered the original Hip Hugger Holster with purple accent.
Carrying concealed on the body can cause issues for women. Using a public restroom or trying on clothes in a store can create a safety problem when wearing traditional holsters. Do you unholster? Remove the holster? Just let it dangle? Good women’s holsters can be tough to find.
Women who wear yoga pants also have difficulties carrying at the hip since the pants are often not sturdy enough to support the firearm and holster. But with the Hip Hugger Holster, the firearm can stay securely in place in each of these situations.
Choosing and Sizing
Be sure to follow the instructions on how to measure and choose the size that would best fit you. I opted to choose a size smaller than suggested but add a “cell pocket extender.” This allowed me to have an extra pocket that fits my iPhone perfectly while being just the right size, and also allowing the holster to fit without the extender as I continue with some weight loss. Multiple rows of hook and eye closures make the holster very adjustable.
There are also options depending on the size of your handgun. The Classic Hip Hugger is made for smaller handguns, while the Big Shebang model will support larger handguns.
Multiple handgun pockets allow for kidney or appendix carry for right or left handers… or the option to carry up to four handguns at once! There are also more pockets to hold extra magazines, pepper spray, a knife or lipstick.
A friend asked a very important question: What about the muffin top?
Definitely something I was a bit concerned about when I purchased the Hip Hugger Holster, because I am not thin and smooth like the woman in the above linked video. But as it turns out that wearing this holster gives me LESS of a muffin top than wearing jeans alone. It’s actually slimming!
Note that these are not just women’s holsters. The Stealth Sport Belt, in particular, is perfect for men who want to carry concealed.
