Advice needed for wife on carry options

Ladies, I need some help and advice for my wife. She currently carries a 38 revolver in the apendix carry position. I recently bought her a small 380 which she cannot carry in this location. We bought a cross breed micro clip holster which did not work for her. Yesterday I have her carry my 1911 in the super tuck holster. After a while she was ok with the holster at the 3:30 position.
She asked if other ladies carry in this position. Looking for input on holster and location from ladies that carry on a daily basis.
Thank you in advance.
Rick

Can't get my wife to wear a holster. Wish I could. She
does carry her G19 in a Hobo style purse from Galco. At
home, on our property, she'll put a .38 S&W in a shoulder
rig when walking the dog or working in our food plots or yard.
But she won't wear a holster IWB or OWB at all. At least
she is armed this way even though it's not optimal.

I prefer OWB, 3:30, and do that openly on my own property, and under a coat everywhere else when the weather allows. In warm weather, I go to a purse. I dislike the purse, but it is the only real solution for me, since everything prints everywhere on my body without a fairly heavy jacket. She should go with whatever works for her, since that is far better than not carrying at all.

Try an Uncle Mike's LE soft "suede" holster. I'm worse than a woman when it comes to comfort.

My SO recently gave me a VERY THIN kydex holster for my G26. The belt clip on it is very strong. I've been carrying it IWB at 3:30 and it is very comfortable. I've carried it a couple of times without a belt without any problems.

Other than this IWB, I carry OWB at 3:30 and yes, it limits what you can wear.

Just the other day, in a thread about carry options (I think someone posting about not liking IWB or something), someone posted a 15 minute youtube video some woman had put together showing a whole bunch of carry options. If I find It, I'll post a link to it here. Good stuff for women looking for carry options.

This is the youtube video that someone posted in another thread this week. This may help with some carry options for women.

Why can't she carry the .380 in that same position - is it an access problem? That is my preferred position for my Kahr PM-9.

Thanks everyone for the replies and links.
Her job prevents OWB carry. While not working she might OWB with a vest.
Somewhat of an access problem when she is seated.
