So, this is why I’m partial to the belly band and similar elastic wraps for concealment. While they don’t hide all my extra poundage, they typically do a respectable job stashing ounces here and there. Like most things in life, this style of carry is by no means perfect. But depending on where you’re going and what you’re wearing, the pros often outweigh the cons (especially for women).
To help demonstrate this phenomenon, I have enlisted the aid of our lovely concealment model, Random Anonymous Chick With Adorable Dog. RACWAD advises me that in none of these photos is she armed with any less than two full-sized pistols, one spare mag, and two knives. No less than that. She beseeches you all to please pardon her smudgy mirror and inartful selfies.
