From the crease where the top of your thigh meets your torso (panty line), go up 5" and take your measurement there for Classic Hip Hugger or Elite. Go up 6" and take your measurement there for She Bang. Keep in mind that your Hip Hugger has 3 rows of hooks/eyes which gives you 1.5" of adjustment (in 0.5" increments). For additional adjustment, the optional Extender gives you an extra 3.5" to 5".
HIP HUGGER SIZE
29" - 32"
33" - 36"
37" - 40"
41" - 45"
* For size 2X - just order an XL Hip Hugger plus an extender.
Keep in Mind:
Elastic stretches. It is normal to get some stretch. The stretch has already been accounted for in the size chart. Please do not over-tighten the measuring tape.
If you need more room or you want to wear your holster both high and low and need something to span the gap... just extend!
Our customers love the original Hip Hugger - now the brand new Hip Hugger Elite by Can Can Concealment offers a refined design with amazing versatility, concealability and comfort.

6 rows of hooks and eyes to allow half-inch adjustments for a perfect fit
Made in the USA!
The Elite is best for guns with a total length of 4" - 6"/6.5". The smaller your gun, the deeper it will sit inside the holster pocket. The longer your gun, the more grip will protrude from the pocket.
Note for left-handed users:
The Elite is designed as right-handed holster. However, it is perfectly workable as a left-handed holster by swiveling the holster pockets 180 degrees. In doing that, the zippered pocket will not end up at the front of the body. Still, 100% workable!
Main Differences between the original Hip Hugger and the Elite:
Elite is only available in 5" width elastic. Original Hip Hugger available in 4" and 5" widths.
Elite has zippered pocket, Original Hip Hugger does not.
Elite has 2 gun pockets. Original Hip Hugger has 3-4 gun pockets (depending on style). So if you don't need a zippered pocket and you'd rather have more options for gun placement, or if you have a small or large gun, the original Hip Hugger may be a better option for you.
Extend: Need more room? Want to carry lower or higher? Pregnant or have weight fluctuations? The optional Size Extender is the solution that gives you 6 additional rows of eyes (in 0.5" increments) and extends your Hip Hugger by 3".
Sizing: Available in S to XL.Check the Size Guide above the "Add to Cart" button. Need a bigger size? Either use an extender or check the Sport Belt, available up to size 3X.
Why use an optional Size Extender?
Carry high on the waist OR low on the hips! If you want to wear your holster to carry higher on your waist under stretch-top skirts or higher-waisted slacks AND you like to carry under low-rise jeans...the Extender is your answer! No need to buy 2 holsters! ...buy the size that best fits your waist measurement, then extend!
You like to carry on your hip! Even though the holster was designed for front and back carry, the Extender lets you hip carry too! Just choose one size smaller (or 2 sizes smaller if you are on the cusp) than your true size and extend! This will "push" the front pockets to the side allowing you to carry on your hip!
You just need more room! If you are on the larger end of XL or wear a 16+, extend! Perfect for temporary weight fluctuations or pregnancy.
I ordered the Elite after having a can can classic sized holster. I had my most recent Elite belly band custom made, Gun Goddess worked with Can Can to coordinate my custom order. I am one happy customer! For reference, I carry 2 different sizes of firearms, in the classic sized holster, S & W MP 2.0 subcompact. In the Elite, the I carry a full size S&W MP 2.0, or my 2.0 subcompact with a kydex shell holster insert, my custom made Elite can actually accommodate a kydex holster for my full size MP 2.0 as well if I choose to carry with a kydex shell insert. I love both sizes, and I'm glad I have 2 sizes of belly band holsters, as they both offer versatility that I need to carry in whatever I choose to wear on any given day. Overall, I find it hard to conceal carry and not print. However this belly band does a great job at making conceal carry a lot easier for women. It is very comfortable, I usually forget I am wearing it, until I have to bend down to pick up something. I would recommend this belly band to anyone looking for a different way to carry. Gun Goddess patiently provided answers to lots of my questions and they helped me order the correct products for my needs, they even fixed my order after I placed an incorrect order, what can I say they are a great company. And of course, Can Can came through to deliver and awesome product.
Gets the job done
This material is sturdy and comfortable. I rock both high waist and upper hips carry. Note, if you wear around your hips you will definitely need to adjust as you sit and drive so be aware. Carrying lower is less noticeable and under shirts you can see it isn't totally flat. I bought two holsters for myself and one for mom.
New friend - HipHugger
I love it and wear it all the time. It makes me feel a bit extra safe and "my tummy is tucked in!" - an added benefit :-)
Best concealed holster I’ve ever used!
I love it!
I’ve worn my hip hugger elite daily since I received it. It’s SO comfortable and versatile! And no printing! Now I just need one for my thigh for the odd times I wear a dress!
Comfortable and concealable
Best holster I’ve tried. Can wear with anything. No need for additional cover garments. Comfortable to wear for long stretches at a time. Will be buying another in the near future.

Not for double stack
I’m small and slight. The band is great but a double stack grip/magazine, P365, is hard to conceal.
It works fine in my single stack grip/magazine guns.
