Default Belly Band holster

I received my order today for a belly band holster from The Well Armed Woman website. Its 4 wide and appears to be sturdily made. Im pretty small 52 tall and tip the scales at around 105, so I got the XS.

Ive been experimenting with wearing it low on the hips (a little too snug with the XS), to up high just under the breasts. Up high works pretty well with gun right in the middle. Im planning to use it for my Bersa Thunder .380.

Ill post more comments as I use it in practical situations. Ok, I did mop the floors with it on but how fun is that?

My problem is with finding concealed carry clothes that fit my frame, yet also conceals the gun. Most of the shirts/blouses I have tried on basically scream Gun!.

Do any of you have tips/suggestions to wearing the belly band type of holster?

I found that wearing them below the waist gets uncomfortable after a short while regardless of the size. For me it works best just above the waist; basically over my belly button with the gun in the 4-5 o'clock position. A loose fitting shirt should conceal it nicely, but only if you have a smaller handgun to begin with.. Tight fitting clothes just won't do a good job of concealing, no matter what kind of holster or what size gun..
