Waist Baldrics or Hip Belts be designed to hold a sword or a pistol or both comfortably. Standard belts go around the waist. These here belts or baldrics go from waist to hip. Can be worn by men or women. Specifically designed for wenches in corsets, as we don't want to hide the treasure chest with a shoulder baldric or cut a beautiful corset in half with a standard belt. These designs be exclusive to Pirate Fashions.
