    I need some ideas for my wife.

    She carries a Glock 19 in a Sidearmor OWB holster 15* cant. We are having a hard time finding garments that will hide the gun. What do you ladies use for cover garments? Any ideas?

    I love the twinset for concealment, especially if she needs to look business casual. If you aren't sure what a "twinset" is, go here:

    http://www.breastfeedingwear.com/patricia1.htm

    Although this is a clothing site for women who are breastfeeding, this is the best image of a twinset that I could find. It's essentially two shirts that are made to wear together, one underneath and one on top and buttoned either at the neckline or in the center. Sometimes the twinset is actually only ONE shirt, but made to look like two. Either way, I find it to be a great concealment garmet for me, and I carry at 2:00 mostly. Good luck!

    These work great. Lands End (www.landsend.com) has many different seperates that you can mix and match to create your own twinsets.

    Hi. I know you addressed this to the women here but since the woman I work for is away right now I'd like to point you to our website http://www.concealedcarry.com/vest_womans.shtml The Hidden Advantage vest is also available in our designer fabric series and there is a selection of a number of different patterns other than those shown on the site http://www.concealedcarry.com/vest_batik.shtml We are in the process of redesigning the website right now so the catalog request is not working. If you'd like one, or have any questions, please call 1-888-959-4500 or write to gary@concealedcarry.com. Stay safe, Gary

    thank you all for your replies.

    Shoeless... when you mentioned the "twin set" I didn't think you were talking about clothes!

    I wear polo shirts to work and wear an undershirt underneath. No problem if bloused right. If I wear a suit, I have to buy the jacket 2 sizes larger to accomidate. I rarely go OWB unless wearing a jacket, I usually do IWB

    I wear blazers and vests to work which conceal my G27 just fine. It also helps to wear form-fitting blouses underneath in order to distract the eye.

    She might also want to consider getting a smaller, more easily concealed gun.

    Great idea, SFGrrl. I used to be addicted to the Land's End catalog because when I lived in PA, I couldn't get enough of their great turtlenecks! I'll check out their site. Thanks!
