Good news! I'm working on a devotional this quarter called the Proverbs 31 Police Wife. If you want to be the first to receive updates about it (plus get a special discount when it's available), sign up here!
When I first found LuLaRoe, I fell in love. Their clothes are so comfortable, and I love knowing that by purchasing from consultants, I’m helping support the families of other women. But most of all, I love that I feel confident and beautiful in them.
After my daughter was born, I never wanted to wear jeans again. I was a total leggings convert. Let’s put it this way, I was familiar enough with LuLaRoe’s line that I could (and still can) tell whether someone is wearing LLR leggings just by looking.
There was one big issue, though.
I couldn’t figure out how to wear those buttery-soft leggings while also carrying a firearm.
The holsters I was finding were too bulky. They actually accentuated the size of my firearm, and most are just made to be worn in more structured pants. While most of the LLR tops are not so fitted and hide a concealed weapon fairly well, I just didn’t want to have to go back to jeans!
I tried the Belly Band thinking it might be a good alternative, but I didn’t like the Velcro. It either scratched my skin or caught my clothes and ruined them (no bueno!)
Enter CanCan Concealment.
My absolute favorite holster for carrying in leggings is the Hip Hugger from Can Can Concealment. It’s amazing! It’s comfortable, conceals my firearm well, and the bra-style hook closure doesn’t catch on my skin or clothes.
It also accommodates a lot of different wearers, since there are 4 different places on the band to carry. I personally carry on the front because I find it more comfortable and easier to access, but that’s personal preference.
With the Can Can, you can carry back or front and on the left or right side. And those unused pockets can hold whatever else you might want – lipstick, money, maybe even a cell phone! There are also two extra pockets (one on each hip) for extra magazines.
The Can Can is also great because it’s easy to alter if you lose or gain weight. It has a lot of different settings you can put the hooks on to tighten it if you lose weight. If you gain weight, they sell an extender. I know as a mom, my weight fluctuates a ton, so the flexibility is great. For reference, I’m a size 14 and ordered an extra large holster.
Want a better idea of how I carry with LuLaRoe?
To help you guys get a feel for how I carry with LLR and the Can Can, I made a video! I like to watch videos because then I can see exactly how others make things work for them.
In the video, I am wearing my favorite lipstick leggings and an XL Randy. Later in the video, I’m wearing an Irma and one of our shawls over the top to show how it helps better conceal a pistol. I usually wear the holster over my leggings, but I also show how it looks when worn underneath. It’s all personal preference ladies!
As a woman, it can be difficult to find a way to conceal carry that we feel comfortable and without sacrificing fashion. I have found this holster helps me do just that! I feel confident and beautiful in my LuLaRoe clothing while also having the piece of mind of conceal carrying my firearm for safety.
