I'm also a girl and I've been looking at those small-of-your-back-inside-the-waistband holsters. Of course, you can wear it out of your waistband or inside. I prefer inside.

I found one so far; Kramer Gunleather. I'll keep checking for other makers. But in the meantime, here's a link: Kramer Handgun Leather: Revolver holsters, concealment holsters, paddle holster, 1911 holster, ankle holster

Not to discourage you themyst but the general consensus is the MOB (Middle Of Back) carry location presents many negivities. Here are two:
  1. The location provides issues with any body position other than standing. Specifically sitting and driving. Also the potential for back injury from a fall.
  2. The gun location does not provide an easy access and once you make purchase of the weapon you are required to sweep it in a large arch to bring it to target.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Thanks for the information. I haven't been around here long enough to know that. However, I'll probably go out and buy one anyway because I've considered this for so long and it seems like the MOB is the best place at least for me. I'll be sure to post my opinion on it after I try it out for a while.

Check out the Kramer link I posted and do an internet search too. They're out there. Why be uncomfortable?

I drive a 10 yo Eldorado and love it. A decision I'm sure 99% of our members would not make!

Bravo on getting what you want! Please follow-up with your experience. Many people use the MOB form of carry and like it. (Like my caddy)

I wish you a good outcome!

I used to carry a J frame Smith inside wait band of surgical scrubs
with the scrub top not tucked in, using a Barami Hip grip:

Barami Hip Grip Concealed Pistol Revolver

I did that for years and no one ever caught on. I know a nurse that
also carries that way in her scrubs.

Do check out the 1:00 or Mexican options. I'm not what you'd call "hippy", but this time of year I have a 34" waist and even with a cover shirt I print if I try to carry inside or outside anywhere else. That, and you can actually get into a car without a lot of adjustments with it up front. I have found that hats and funny tee-shirts tend to draw the eye away from the waist line, also.
