    Help me keep my pants on.

    I am a little overweight and carry my sr9c iwb and have to really tighten up my belt to keep my pants from slipping. I guess my extra weight is taking away my waistline/hipbone connection and allowing the belt to slip down. Any others have this problem and your solution? I know, I know, I'm going to take some jests, so go at it.
    I'd rather not go to suspenders. Actually iwb and owb has the same problem.

    Sorry for your problem but, suspenders will be the best fix.

    Are you using a purpose made gun belt, designed to hold up the weight of a firearm?

    Good quality gun belt may be all that is required. If that doesn't work I see 2 options.

    1. Suspenders
    2. Become friends with Jenny Craig

    Carry at the 6 oclock position and use these hosters. I have the same problem, but the fact that they are non-slip and don't actually hang from your waistband means that instead of pulling your pants down, they actually act as a space taking up some slack in your pants. . . helping keep 'em up!

    Of course, you do need to where pants that have enough room for the holster and weapon to slip into it in the first place.

    here's a link to a shoulder holster that I use from time to time. I works and it's comfortable CCW Ultra Concealment Shoulder Holster | Gunner Security

    I like a belly band that holds the gun independently on it's own without pulling down on the pants.

    Get a good belt designed for carrying a gun such as an Ares Gear Ranger Belt.

    I think what you are describing Is all belly and no butt. I don't have that. Sometimes my wife says I'm all Butt! But that might just be me!
    A shoulder holster might work for you in a couple of ways.
    1 it takes the weight off your belt and hangs it off your shoulders.
    2 it will also hook to your belt like suspenders.

    Another thought might be a Remora holster. it uses traction of your skin to hold it in place not your belt.
    Good luck DR

    When I say the title I thought it was a thread by Slick Willy. Seriously though I am a bit rotund myself but have found that with a good gun belt I have no problem with my pants. I normally wear Wrangler Relaxed Fit jeans with a Wild Bills Concealment gun belt.

    Perry Suspenders are hassle-free when worn with a sweater. Since the hooks are easily detached and reattached to the belt, you can change your pants without having to remove your sweater.

    A gun belt goes a long way helping with that. And though you hesitate suspenders would solve the problem nicely.

    I like to wear my suspenders from time to time..I can wear um and go totally un-noticed and not worry about having to pull my pants up as I walk.

    I was told that it is called the furniture syndrome where your chest falls into your drawers. I got it as well, (for my 50th birthday
    I believe). A fanny pack holster may be another option.
