My 2 cents is this: If your carry method makes you nervous that you may accidentally show, then adjust your method. You want to be completely self confident in your carry method so you can enjoy yourself and not be nervous or self conscious all the time.
I have two methods depending on what I'm wearing. Either OWB strong side carry, or IWB strong side carry. OWB is a little more comfortable for me and is the way I prefer, but the IWB pulls my firearm in more and allows for shorter cover shirts.
I carry a Kimber .45 Eclipse and am completely confident in my two methods of carry.
The advice of adjusting how you crouch down and reach up are also well said. It's also better for you anyway to use your legs rather than bending over at the waist.
I carry the same way all the time. Don’t worry as JFL said, even if you accidently expose the bottom of the holster, you’ve not done anything illegal.
And relax… Most citizens are sheep and don’t realize what they are seeing even if they see it. And if they do see a gun on your hip in a holster most citizens presume you’re an off duty LEO.
But as BikerRN said, if you want truly stealth carry IWB.
