Meet Ava - a leather and thermoplastic hybrid made to be worn inside the waistband. It features a soft, leather back piece that conforms to your shape.
The back piece is lined with a rich, deep purple suede for comfort. It is also cut down to be smaller than the traditional men's style hybrid holsters, to better fit a woman's body- but guys love the Ava too!
The clips are super-strong to hold the holster in place with or without a belt. They are adjustable and can be raised or lowered to create a total of NINE different cant and depth combinations!
Most Ava right-hand models are kept in stock. Check the dropdown options list for updated inventory status.
Left-Hand Draw models - Most left-hand draw models are special orders, and may take up to 20 business days to ship. As soon as your order ships, you will receive an email with tracking number (if you add other items to your order, all items will ship together when your holster is ready).
Out of Stock models: We receive inventory weekly and keep most models in stock, but the Ava sells fast. If your model is out of stock, it will be marked in the options list as a special order. This means you can still place an order for it, just understand that availability could be up to 20 business days after you order. If you add other items to your order, they will all ship together. If you prefer to be notified when a specific model is back in stock, just email us.
Why we love it: It's a holster designed by women, for women. It's sized right. Nine cant and depth options mean you can find the most concealable position for YOU. And we know you love Ava too - this is one of our most popular holsters!

I am impressed with how well this holster distributes the weight of my Kimber Solo CDP. Makes it very comfortable to carry all day. I have very sensitive skin, so it took a few days of wearing it for the leather to soften up enough that it didn't irritate me, but it was well worth sticking it out! I prefer to wear it with a belt. It was easy to adjust to get the perfect fit. I would definitely buy the Ava again!

I received my Ava within a week from when i placed the order. it is very comfortable. it can be worn with or without a belt and it stays in place. I have the LC380 and i really like the adjustability of the ava. i was not used to wearing in the waistband.
my husband has spent alot of money trying to find the perfect ccw in the waist band holester. so i am glad that he found this one for me and did not have to spend alot of $ to do it. i would recommend this holester to my friends and family. a few times, i forgot that i was wearing it and that says alot. great price. i have only had it a few weeks but i hope that it will be durable and last a really long time.

This holster is awesome. I have a Springfield XDS and have a few other holsters and this is by far the best one for a 5'1" gal. Going to order one for my S&W M & P compact!

This holster is well built and works well. It is slightly difficult to place but the more it is used the easier this will be. The service at Gun Goddess is the best. It is definitely 5 stars out of 5, 10 out of 10 or even better than that.

I couldn't be happier with my purchase of the Ava holster! It is super comfortable, right out of the packaging! I can only imagine that it will become more and more comfortable as time goes by! I forget that I have it on me at times :)

This is my second purchase from Gun Goddess. I purchased this, because I was hoping for less shifting. I have an office job, and wore The Betty. I found that the holster and my Ruger LC380 shifted too often, and can become uncomfortable. The Ava is so comfortable that I sometimes forget I have my gun on me. The only bad thing about this holster is the gun sits loosely in the holster and there is no click to secure the weapon. I have considered heating up the Kydex and compressing it a tad more.

My husband bought the Ava for my gun and I love it. It is so comfortable that I sometimes forget I have my gun on me. I am telling everyone I know about this holster.

I was a little skeptical of this, but no longer. I am short and have difficulty concealing my gun. I bought 2 avas, one for my XDs and one for my M&P Shield. I haven't gotten to use the one for my XDs due to the recall, but I love the one for the Shield. My gun is fully concealed without any poking or discomfort. I highly recommend it.
