When you are looking to carry a concealed gun, then it can be challenging to create a wardrobe that is functional while remaining good-looking. Thankfully there are undercover clothes options that can help you maintain your style while also ensuring you are able to keep yourself and your loved ones safe if the situation calls for it.
Undercover clothes help you look good, be comfortable, and effectively conceal your weapon. Unfortunately, many concealed carry clothing options are tactical by design. That means they don’t fit well in most business or social situations—unless you want to tell the world that you are armed and defeat the purpose of the concealment. So here are some tips to help you when choosing your undercover clothing:
Don’t Buy Fitted Shirt – Fitted dress shirts are usually cut with a taper toward the waist to help you avoid unsightly pleats or folds when it is tucked into your trousers. That doesn’t leave much room for a shirt tuckable inside the waistband holster. You should always opt for standard-cut shirts so you have that extra waist room you need.
Look for Shirts with Longer Tails – The longer the tail on your shirt, the more material there is to tuck into the waistband of your trousers. That makes it easier to keep your shirt tucked, especially when using a tuckable inside the waistband holster.
Wear an Undershirt with a Built-In Holster – One of the best options currently available; several companies make undershirts with concealed carry holsters already built in. These shirts offer you the convenience of a shoulder holster without any of the hassles that can sometimes come with them.
It can be hard to shop for clothing items online, especially when you are searching for concealed carry options for men and women. UnderTech UnderCover, your online source for the best clothes for concealed carry, has put together a handy chart to help you make the right choices. Before you place an order for your shirts, jackets, and more, take a tape measure and make sure you order a selection that fits you. It is important to note that you will want clothing items that fit comfortably, so keep your personal needs in mind before placing an order.
Ordering quality women’s gun apparel or undercover clothing for men has never been easier. Many people trust our clothing when they are seeking items to use in a professional or personal capacity. We are confident that you will find the clothing items you need. Contact our business if you have any questions about our clothing sizes.
We’ve purposely omitted the hip measurement from our sizing chart for our women’s shirts, shorts, and leggings. This is because we find that your hip measurement is not a primary factor in determining your size for our products. Our fabrics have a lot of stretch and you’ll be surprised how well they fit. Our clothing is designed to fit snuggly, but comfortably. It should fit tightly enough to support the weight of your weapon, but not so tight as to be uncomfortable.
For shirts, the most important measurement in determining your correct size is your bust/chest measurement. The shirt should fit snugly around the bust/chest, so that your weapon stays firmly in place and doesn’t bounce around when you move. If you order the shirt to fit your bust/chest, the rest of the shirt will stretch to accommodate a wider mid-section, and lightly hug a smaller midsection.
For shorts and leggings, the most important measurement in determining your size is your true waist measurement. The item should fit snuggly on your natural waist to properly support the weight of your weapon. Once you’ve determined your waist size, you’ll need to measure your hips at their widest point. If your hip measurement is less than 10 inches greater than your waist measurement, you would order the size that corresponds to your waist measurement. If your hip measurement is greater than 10 inches above your waist measurement, then order the next size up. For example, if you have a 30-inch waist and 39-inch hips you would wear size small. If you have a 30-inch waist and 42-inch hips, you would wear size medium.
Something else to consider in choosing the correct size is how you prefer your clothing to fit. We’ve tested our clothing on a variety of people of all shapes and sizes. We find that many can wear a couple of different sizes and still be happy with the fit. If you really can’t stand wearing anything tight, then order the next size up. Your weapon may wiggle a bit when you move, but the retention strap will keep it secured in the holster. If you prefer the fit of a compression garment that really holds you in, then order a size down. If you want the garment to fit as it was designed, then order based on your measurements and our size chart.
Bust/Chest - Start by placing a measuring tape around the largest part of your bust/chest. The tape should be flat but not too snug. This is the most important measurement for determining your shirt size.
Waist - Your natural waist is the smallest point between your bottom ribs and hip bones. This is usually just above your belly button. To measure, relax your stomach and lie the tape measure flat around your waist, allowing for ¼ inch of slack. This is the most important measurement for determining your shorts and/or legging size.
