I’ve been a conceal carry permit holder for over 20 years and recently the designer of the bosumbuddy™ line of holsters.
If you’ve had your permit as long as I have you’ve probably had a similar experience trying to
find a safe, secure, accessible , concealed holster that might be comfortable too!
I’ve tried ankle holsters, bellybands, kydex IWB and others. They are all great holsters, and they
work for lots of women but for me each had its challenges.
The ankle holster required wide leg pants and getting to it wasn’t fast or easy!
The bellyband is great for concealment and accessibility, but I couldn’t wear it in warmer
weather, and it rode up and down my torso.
The traditional Kydex IWB holster requires a belt. I don’t wear belts and visiting the restroom

over many hours or days with my S&W .380 EZ which is almost 7” long and weighs 18.5 ounces.
Slowly but surely it all came together in the bosumbuddy™ Kydex Bra Holster.
