    I'm kind of stuck here on what to do. I'm a large guy weight wise so I'm limited to where I can carry when it comes to IWB. I also have the same issue than many other big guys have. I suffer from NoAssAtAll syndrome. My backside has no curve to it so no matter what kind of belt I wear my pants always sag.

    I was wearing a Uncle Mike's tactical nylon belt with Makenzie IWB holster but wasn't happy. The holster is not smooth on the inside and wasn't pleasant to wear for long periods.

    So I recently bought a Comp Tac Minotaur holster and leather/kydex contour belt. They are both top notch quality but even with 2 layers of leather with kydex in the middle it still sags some.

    So what do I do? It can't be anything that costs money at the moment since I'm still recovering from the $200 I paid for those.

    What about suspenders under my shirt? Are there other deep concealment options for a big guy that would work better?

    Suspenders under the shirt work quite well. If you keep suspenders clean they will be comfortable for a long time. I wear an A shirt (wife beater) year round. I need to wear suspenders when I carry any pistol larger than a Kel Tec P-11, even my Charter 357 that I carry in my pocket.

    I dont have the same problem, but I can never find a comfortable IWB holster, they just do not agree with me for some reason. If it fits comfy, as soon as I get in truck it goes south... cant stand a gun in small of back especially.

    I have tried many and come to find high ride paddles perform the best with me. I am aprox 6 foot and 235 and the paddles just hug to my side. I bought a Springfield XDs .45 last year and it just hugs along daily, sometimes I forget it is there.
