Armed and Stylish With the Concealed Thigh Holster
Maintaining a sense of fashion can be difficult while carrying a gun. Concealed firearms often leave bulky outlines in clothing like tailored blouses and slim-line skirts. Fortunately, a concealed thigh holster can help you achieve the look you want, but you will need to find the right style and fit.
Styles of Thigh Holster
A hidden carry thigh holster is one that wraps around your upper thigh and resembles an old-fashioned garter. They come in three basic types.
Velcro closure is the most common type. It consists of an elastic band that wraps around your thigh. You can adjust it by tightening or loosening the Velcro closure. This style gives you a range of size options.
The hook closure has eyelet hooks on an elastic band similar to those on some undergarments. It often only has two to four size options and is generally not as adjustable as the Velcro closure types.
The garter holster slips up your leg and stretches to fit. This type can extend considerably and does not need a closure.
No matter what type of band holster you use, you should get a garter belt designed for it. The garter belt keeps it from slipping down.
Each of these types comes in a variety of styles and colors. You can find everything from decorative lace-up corset thigh holsters to basic elastic bands. If you are wearing a peekaboo skirt, you can even find a thigh holster that matches your overall look so it will be less noticeable.
Wearing a Thigh Holster
Wearing a thigh holster requires practice and a bit of patience. Make sure your gun fits snugly and securely on the inside or outside of your thigh. When you try on a hidden thigh holster, move around in it to make sure it does not rub, move or slide.
You can still feel safe wearing your little black dress or that cute summer skirt. With an undetectable thigh holster, you can be armed and still look stylish.
