We're right in the middle of Summer, and that means many of the "standard" clothing options for concealed-carry are just too hot to wear right now. You don't want to sacrifice your safety and stop carrying, so what are you supposed to do?
Good news! There are lots of options available for carrying concealed during the hot summer months, so you don't have to suffer or give yourself heatstroke just to make sure you have your firearm with you!
Purse carry will give you the flexibility to wear just about any outfit of your choice. If you choose this option, there are some critical things you need to know, so make sure to read our article on concealed-carry using a purse.
A Belly band like the Hip Hugger Holster gives you a safe and secure option that works with many different types of clothing. It's great for pairing with shorts, leggings, skirts, or dresses and it will fit many different body types. This style of holster will also work with a wide variety of guns, so if you have multiple carry pistols, you probably won't have to buy another holster.
Both garter and ankle holsters work fantastically with skirts and dresses. An ankle holster works best with long hemlines, while a garter holster can be used with either long or short dresses and skirts. Both of these options work best with compact and sub-compact pistols, and if you're going to be carrying a heavier gun, the garter holster can be used with a specially-designed garter belt for additional support.
Of course, these options work during the other months of the year too! Having a few of these holsters in your personal stash will ensure that you can carry no matter the season, outfit, or style you're wearing!
