    Holster ideas please for right hand female cross carry under left breast

    Frankly I'm overwhelmed with holster choices so thought those of you knowledgeable could help me put together a short list.
    Glock 19
    Right handed
    Want to cross draw gun located under left breast
    Holster outside of waistband either on belt or clipped onto snug, heavy (as in work style, not designer) jeans waistband
    Set as low as possible and canted fairly extremely.
    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    If this is a working holster and concealment is secondary, get in touch with Rob at Simply Rugged Holsters (simplyrugged.com) and see what he suggests.

    Beyond that, take some time to review what the various site-sponsor holster makers have to offer.

    Concealment is necessary

    Thanks gasmitty,
    I'll keep Rob at simplyrugged.com in mind but I should have said that concealment is also a top priority.

    The Flashbang Bra Holster
    Something like this?

    Don't know if they have them for bigger guns like the G19.

    I'm not sure this is what you're after, from your description, but stumbled across it and it looks as though it performs well,

    If concealment is a priority you may need to rethink crossdraw carry.

    The butt of the G-19 will be harder to conceal then if carried strong side in an outside the waistband holster.

    That said Simply Rugged makes a really good pancake style holster for cross draw.

    Thanks but I have looked at that and I think it is designed to work best with a small gun.

    Thanks ! But.....I can't see how a Glock 19 would fit there ! I think they designed the Bra Holster with very small guns in mind.

    With my 38 revolver, I used an IWB CrossBreed canted to the max and positioned between my waistband and left breast and draw with my right hand. That is very concealed and works good so I am looking for a similar set up for the Glock 19 but outside the waist band - might consider the Fist Driving to Cross Draw sort of thing. Ideas?

    I'm considering this one - I like the extra slot for angle variance. Thanks.

    Sorry, but that shot hit my funny-bone since, from strictly an engineering standpoint, adequate concealment with a bra-holster would greatly depend on the individual's natural assets (e.g. Dolly Parton could probably easily conceal a Thompson sub-machine gun with such )

    I can understand your pursuit of something more comfortable because and IWB holster can be a comfort challenge to anyone regardless of gender. Not knowing how you normally dress, most shoulder holsters (with all the harness involved) have to be worn over a shirt of blouse to keep from quickly becoming even more uncomfortable than an IWB; but that kind of portage always requires wearing a jacket or suit-coat to provide the concealment. Even if you planned on wearing a shoulder holster over your bra and next to your body under a bulky sweater or other loose-fitting top, it would not only become very uncomfortable in a short amount of time, but greatly slow your ability to draw your Glock from having to raise your top much higher than would be necessary to pull it from an IWB.

    Being a lady and depending on your normal routine, have you considered one of the specially-designed purses with a quick-retrieve pistol pocket? I have a number of female aquaintences that prefer using a neck-strap purse (slung across the neck opposite the carry side to prevent purse-snatching) especially while they're out shopping. They find it very easy to unnoticeably walk through parking lots and maintain concealment with their hand in their purse and the pistol's grip already in their hand - hard to beat a potential quick-draw like that.

    There are also specially designed "fanny packs" that women can easily wear without suffering the sissy feeling that many men would endure with such; and there's also the "Sneaky Pete" holster that also provides an external "hidden in plain sight" concealed carry as well. Just other thoughts to possibly consider.

    Thanks for the reply and interesting comments.

    So from an engineering standpoint, then you can see why I'd like to carry between my waist and breast as there is a natural space there which a draping over shirt conceals.

    As for Dolly's particulars.......well, there's enough room here too but the weight of a G19 hanging there would take some getting used to - I've read of the need for specially designed straps to keep from digging into ones shoulders and back problems occurring with regular carrying there of even some of the smaller guns. The bra carry is definitely designed for a lighter weight gun.

    I've never considered a shoulder harness - maybe when I said cross draw, that is what everyone thinks.......I am considering a cross draw belt holster maybe the Fist Drive and Cross Draw.

    I do have a couple of cool little handbags that I've used for my handguns but I'm more of a wallet on a string type of person so I haven't got too far with them. I want the firearm to be on my person, feel a bit uncomfortable with it being in a handbag on any sort.

    The jury is still out on fanny packs even if worn in front - maybe then should be called belly packs.

    With my outdoor lifestyle and dress, I've found shirt tucked in jeans, IWB holster with our without belt, then overshirt with natural drape being provided by the DP endowment has worked well for my revolver but I'm looking for an over the waistband set up for my Glock 19 so am considering, among others, the Drive and Cross Draw by Fist.

    Any other ideas are welcome !

    Check out Shelly Rae's comments on Gun Nuts Media (google them) and then relook at the flashbang holster web site. They have a model for the G26/G27 and they are not much smaller than the G19. They also say that they are working on other fits for more guns. Given the popularity of the G19 I'm guesing it will be on their list soon.

    That Drive and Cross Draw at the Fist website looks pretty neat. (they have a video of it) It does not look very concealable though, with something like a g19. I like the fact that the gun can snap off while still in the holster so you keep that trigger covered for safety.

    No harm trying it though, it would always make a nice holster for long driving trips, even if it does not turn into an everyday holster.

    Do report in if you get it. And welcome to the group!

    Flash Bang not for me

    Thank you, but........My husband has a G26 and I can't see hanging that as a pendant from my bra - no - and the convenience of draw - well you would just have to try to do that, whether male or female, in winter in Colorado going through various layers of clothing.........can't beat the belt position IMHO for all seasons.
