theotherlis: I'm also a woman, and I use the bellyband a good bit. there are at least two places a woman can conceal with a BB, you can experiment some. 1) around waist- when I carry this way, the band goes right over my hipbones, and I keep the gun at either 1:30 or 3:00 position. experiment with how high or low you put it for best concealment. I usually keep most of the gun below the waistband of my pants, just enough grip exposed to grab effectively 2) (this may or may not work for you, my body is different from yours)- worn on the chest, just under your bra band, with the keltec-sized gun positioned to one side or the other so that it is concealed where the fabric of the shirt is naturally held away from the body in that spot

As tellico pointed out, every person has a slightly different shape so what works for one, may not work for another. I use a Thunderwear which is practically the same as the Smartcarry but itís not always the best choice. Likeí the belly-band it does tend to ride-up when Iím out at the movie house. Iím constantly shifting the darn thingí around to get comfortable. Itís not uncommon that we have to spend a fortune on carry devices to satisfy our conceal carry needs.

BB didn;t work for me... tried it for several days in a variety of positions. There are several similar varieties which ride under the arm and have a shoulder strap, that might work.. but I am comfortable with pocket and IWB so no more hoslters for me, for now!

I don't think it would matter if you keep it in the wasit area vs higher up. Mine is mostly below the waistband and BB means you can put the gun anywhere that best conceals for you around your waist area. HTH some.

That's how I wear it with 2 of my revolvers and an EMP, and it works great. It is even easier to draw it. And, I don't find myself pulling up my pants because it keeps the weight of the gun off my pants. It feels secure as well. I've had no issues with it moving around... and believe me ... with "my build".... LOL.... that's something.
