When I bought my BG380, I bought a Don Hume pocket holster the same day. This is an excellent holster, but I found that it doesn't conceal as well in some of the pants I wear as I'd like. It is a handsome holster that fits well and is very ruggedly made. It has the hook to catch on your pocket corner and strip the holster off as you draw.

Next I bought a smart carry (or it might be a smart carry knockoff, I'm not certain). This is a good deep-concealment holster that I use on occasion. But the difficulty of putting it on, and the long draw time keep me from using except when necessary. One bonus is that it has two pockets, so I can carry a spare magazine (or two, or pepper spray).

Finally, I came across this great Kusiak leather IWB holster. It fits the gun like a glove and makes it very concealable. I can wear this with most t-shirts. It isn't as rugged as the Hume, more of a medium build quality in both stitching and leather choice, but it has held up perfectly to constant use so far (I think I've had it for about four months). My only complaint is that I can't get a full grip because it sits a bit low -- but it still draws quickly, probably, a bit quicker than the Don Hume and definitely quicker than the smart carry.

I like that first holster. I wouldn't worry too much about its concealability. It will conform to your shape as it breaks in. Besides, no one notices either way. Most people don't look, nobody cares, and as long as you are complying with the law and it is concealed I wouldn't worry.
