I wore the holster on my thigh, as well as under my arm, my hip, and my lower back. In all of the locations that I placed it, it was comfortable to wear and I had no issues concealing my firearm of choice in each place. I especially liked the fact that I had little to no issues with printing, regardless of which firearm I chose. I like the fact that this particular holster is so versatile and works for a variety of different body types. As stated in the initial review, I am not a thin person, rather, I consider myself to be an average mom, with post baby mom bod.
In wearing it on my thigh, I would definitely suggest a smaller framed gun or pocket pistol, like a .380. Mostly for comfort of it being on/between your leg(s). There were no issues with it slipping during wear. While the guns that I tried out were comfortable enough in the holster, it was a bit awkward adjusting my stride so as not to continuously be bumping it. However, I did like the fact that it is versatile enough of a holster that I am able to wear a skirt or dress if I so choose, and not lose the ability to carry. Which is great during the hot summer!
When worn under my arm, it was again comfortable and I was pleased that printing was not an issue. While the 1911 did print more than the other two this did not surprise me as it is a larger full frame gun. I had no issues with it slipping here either. The gun remained secure throughout the period of time that I wore. I would not recommend wearing a tighter fitting shirt if you choose to carry in this position, unless with a pocket pistol. I wore a looser shirt/sweatshirt while wearing it this way.
With hip carry it was great, and had no issues with it remaining in place or being in the way when using the restroom. Which was great and a definite positive aspect. When it came to back carrying once I had it situated, it was comfortable, even to the point that I barely felt it there. Which surprised me as I have never really carried a gun there, mostly due to the thought that it would be awkward/uncomfortable for sitting.
One of the things that I really liked about it is that despite repetitive use, the elasticity of it did not decrease like many things that have an elastic band in them do over time/repeat use. While it is not AS elastic/stretchy as when I first received it, it has still held its elasticity well over time.
I also liked that there were numerous occasions during the testing period, that I had it on and had asked my husband how it looked. He had a confused look on his face and asked me what I was talking about. It wasn't until I showed him that I was wearing it that he knew what I was talking about. There were even times that he was standing next to me with an arm around me and had no clue that I had it on. This is a HUGE plus in my opinion as that means that it does an effective job of concealing and not imprinting.
I will say the one downside that I found with this holster is that re-holstering it is as challenge. However, if you are going to be drawing your firearm for defensive use, you will not be re-holstering until your surroundings are once again safe. So, that a being said, it is up to each individual as to how much of a drawback this aspect is.
Throughout my period of testing, I preformed normal activities to see how it would withstand them, and it passed with flying colors. I had no issues with it slipping or becoming uncomfortable for the duration that I wore it. While I was skeptical at first that this holster would hold up to its claims, I am definitely a believer at this point.
Overall, I think that the Lethal Lace holster is a feminine, versatile, and functional holster. I would recommend this holster to women who are looking for something that meets that criteria. The standard holster is one size fits all up to 43 inch waist size, but is available for custom order for those who have a larger waist. I love that it is basically 5 holsters in 1 and that as a woman you don't have to base your outfit on carrying your gun with this particular holster. According to their website, they will have men's holsters coming later this year.
