I'm also a guy so take this for what it is worth. I think the trade off here is that a woman's (generally) tighter / lighter clothing makes it tougher to carry without printing, but if you carry a purse or handbag, then you have a lot more options than most guys (not judging any guys out there who carry a man bag).
As far as the gun, the G19 is a great choice. The G43 is smaller and a lot easier to conceal. The Kahr CM9 is in the same price range and is another great choice. I'd also throw out the Taurus PT 709, which is smaller and also cheaper. For the same bulk and price range as the G19, you could also look at the offerings from CZ, especially the CZ-75. For me, personally, that gun is a lot easier to shoot, and more accurate, than the G19. Point being, take some time to get to a range and try out a variety of guns before making a final decision. If nothing else, even if you decide that the G19 is the best gun for you, this exercise will result in more confidence that you made the right decision, and you will probably enjoy the process. Most ranges have rentals, or you may be able to borrow a few guns from a friend.
If you are in Houston, I would be more than happy to meet up at the range and let you try a few of my guns, assuming we can find a time that works. Feel free to PM me if you are interested.
Lastly, don't stress all that much about printing. It's not illegal to print like crazy, even if there is a 30.07 sign present, and frankly most people wouldn't notice even the most egregious case of printing. People tend to be too focused on their phones or other distractions.
