Lethal Lace

Lethal Lace

Many women have (validly) complained that few concealment holsters are designed with their clothing requirements and body contours in mind. Fortunately, as more women enter the shooting world, there are entrepreneurs jumping into the market with a variety of products designed to meet their needs.

Lethal Lace is a product that is simple in design and seems to work well. It is not a perfect solution for all people, and it does have some drawbacks (such as the ability to reholster.) However, I can see how some people might like the flexibility that this offers.

Take a look at the following two videos to see how to use the product and how well it appears to work.

In this video, a woman shows how easy it is to conceal a firearm using the product. See if you can spot the gun before she shows you where it is:

This is another video the company put together describing the Lethal Lace product:

What do you think? Is this a good design?

    It really like the idea. It allows women to wear a larger variety of clothes while keeping the gun on them, where it should be! It actually seems like a good idea for either sex. I could see a less feminine version being useful for men in light clothing like cyclists etc. Best of luck to them!

      I’m a man, and I’d just wear it lace and all. It would be great for cycling. I’d have to wear a light T-shirt, not just a cycling jersey, but that’s easy.

      • Tassiebush

        haha I can see where you’re coming from. but if that was me I think I’d be trying to conceal my method of concealment too! but part of the genius of this is that it doesn’t look like a holster. if people did catch you out they’d think a lot of things before they’d suspect you were armed! 😉

  • USMC03Vet

    That would be a terrible first date!

    • wetcorps

      That would be an awesome first date 🙂

      • Vhyrus

        I think it honestly depends on which end of the gun you see first….

  • Christopher Stewart

    Add a Kydex clamshell insert for reholstering and you have a winner.

    • Chase Buchanan

      I bet it’d be really easy to make your own insert by just forming a couple of rectangles around your gun. It’d make the thing more bulky, but it might be worth it.

  • echelon

    Simple. Everyone get back to carrying openly then there isn’t a problem.

    Why yes honey, that Smith does look nice with your little black dress…

  • akim h lettner

    guys it is not made for us ok!!!! soo shutup!

    • Chase Buchanan

      Bull! This is made for anybody with a 42″ waist or less! And I, for one, am a man who is very excited about it.

      • akim h lettner

        i’m too. but not my cup of tea for me but my gf nice vday gift.

  • Chase Buchanan

    I cannot remember ever being this excited about a way to carry. I really want one of these for my Kahr CW9. And for full disclosure, I’m a man.

    I checked this out a few weeks ago and I think this is a good option for women who are on a budget. The fact this product can be fitted in a number of ways (ankle, waist, chest, thigh, or calf) is also pretty cool.

  • pftttt

    60 bucks for what is essentially just a strip of stretchy, unsecure lace that WILL drop your piece out on the floor at an inopportune moment.

    I think not.

    • screwtape2713

      Since the “piece” is inserted into a pocket with a completely closed bottom and THEN all the wraps go over to help support it, I’m somewhat at a loss to see how it could possibly “drop out”, any more than if it’s stuck into a pants pocket … Could you enlighten us on this?

  • screwtape2713

    Indian women have worn saris for centuries as their main piece of clothing – and also used some of the wraps as ‘pockets’ or ‘purses’. After all that time, it is an extremely tried and tested method.

    I wouldn’t be too surprised to discover that that is where this lady got her inspiration for this holster, because it is basically the same sort of ‘wrapping’ idea, except on a slightly smaller scale and for a more specific function.

    Alternatively, there have been a great many cultures and times in which long cloth sashes were worn in place of our current leather or webbing belts, with the cloth wrapped several times around the waist. They were used both to hold clothes together and also, again, with a folded part of the wrap used as a pocket or purse, and also to hold things ‘thrust through them’ (such as a brace of flintlock pistols, a dagger or a cutlass if you were a pirate or naval officer).

    So apart from looking closely at the quality of the fabric and the ‘pocket’ construction in this particular holster, I would otherwise consider the design to be extremely well time-tested and proven.
