we've tried a iwb... it prints pretty bad.. she's not a fan of the ankle holster.. and she's afraid the flash bang will be to uncomfy, she doesn't carry a purse ... any ideas??? Thx in advance ..

buy a size larger clothing to help not print.

This could be a statement that forces me to defend myself

Buy clothing sized to fit the need and stop worry'n about vanity. One of the smallest yet adjustable waist line holsters is the desanatis soft tuck. Its very adjustable so she can be moved around her body and lean for and aft to find what ever direction she needs for an easy draw. Cheaper too if you shop around. I have used this holster for several of my girls and there husbands to find a position that works best. 2 of them stay with that holster. One carries the TCP and is 5'-2 and 105ln with well fitted pants and tops. .

If all else fails and she can't find a suitable holster try a clipdraw. Not the best set up. But better than being Un armed. And they run under 20$

Here is the best advice I can give you. Find a gun store with a couple of female employees. Load your wife in the car and take her there. Go look at cars. Be back in an hour.

My daughter is a petite little thing and we ran into the same problems. Based on her experience I can tell you one thing that won't work, and that's buying bigger or baggier clothes. Changing the wardrobe to fit the gun rarely works, especially for the ladies. You will eventually go back to what you are comfortable in and leave the gun home.
