My daughter wasn't comfortable, either. She filled a box full of holsters that didn't work for one reason or another before she went to the purse. Of the choices she had with the body she wants, it was the best available for her. We have since put her into a nice 5 shot hammerless revolver and she is even happier yet. She will wear the purse on her strong side, and as she leaves work or the store she will slip her hand into the weapon pocket of her purse. The weapon is in her hand yet still completely concealed. Is it the ideal solution? Far from it, but it is the best compromise we can come up with so far.

Seriously, I wish you a lot of luck. With the difference in skeletal anatomy, plus what society and fashion trends tell you to wear, you're in a mess. Try to find a local gun shop with a female employee and talk to them. They have the same problem you do, plus they have access to a lot of female customers that share your problem.

This is the best advice and I feel stupid for not thinking of it myself :-/

Try corneredkitty.com
Most of the female police officers that I know carry a North American .22 Mag. derringer in their bra as an "Onion Field" gun.

Without my daughter's experience I never would have thought of it. Good luck with your search, and please let us know what you come up with.

By the way, never feel stupid for not coming up with the answer. Only feel stupid if you're too proud to ask the question.

I just ordered the Remora, since I don't like to wear a belt it seemed like my best first choice.

I want a CC holster for inside your waist band. As I am right handed I would need a left handed paddle holster then correct? Need help.

Trying to stay focused on the subject...I am glad that the purse is not your first choice, anything not on your person is easily taken away.

My daughter carries a M&P9C in a N82 IWB holster, she is a slim curvy girly girl, it does print with most of her shirts while sitting, but she is usually cold and almost always has a sweater or jacket in hand.

The wife has a few more curves(I'm so in trouble) and carries in a Sticky holster most of the time. Both of my girls can pull off a hybrid type holster they just complain about having to buy jeans a little bigger and about wearing a belt.

This lady seems to have several good ideas on female carry tips. http://www.youtube.com/user/faliaphotography
