Welcome from Missouri. I am not sure I can help you because I am sure we are two different ages and difference in abilities, but check out the sites that have been recommended. A carry method for a woman depends on several points. Physical abilities, body shape, type of clothes worn are three.
I carry a Ruger LCP for shopping, because it fits well in my front jeans pocket. When I am dressed different...I carry in my purse....a Ruger SP101. I have the tactics for purse carry well worked out on type of purse. I have a very nice Coronado purse with a separate compartment that is zippered and has a lock.
When carrying the purse....I put it over my head, not just on the shoulder. When walking out to the car, I unzip the compartment and keep my right hand on it....but not on the trigger. I have rehearsed it and it works well.
I am Nana aged with arthritis so many holsters are not suited for me. I believe you are younger and are very lucky that there are many options available to you. I have been carrying for a couple of decades now and there were not the options for woman when I started. Good luck on your search.
A woman must not depend on protection by men. A woman must learn to protect herself.
