    A good gun belt will do wonders. Or go for a shoulder holster.

    What kind of belt are you trying to use when you carry? Get a purpose made gun belt, that should help fix your problem, because a lot of store bought belts aren't strong enough. What kind of handguna re you trying to conceal? I carry a full size 1911 and two spare mags on my belt, no problems with the pants falling down. Also, are your pants too big to begin with?

    I have the exact same problem...no butt,no hips. A good gun belt has done wonders for me. I tried using regular belts for a while but my firearm and pants just kept sagging. A good stiff gun belt solved the problem!

    A good belt used in conjuction with suspenders will most likely solve your issue.

    Good belt or no, it might just be time for some Perry Suspenders.

    +1 on the suspenders. Or shoulder harness I guess, because unless you get the weight off your belt or out of your pocket - the pants are coming down. Never seen them before, but those Perry suspenders look pretty neat.

    I have used a pair of Dickie's or Perry's suspenders I got from Wal-Mart that hook directly to the belt in the past. I wore under cover shirt with this setup and it worked with most any belt. I carried a full sized 1911 for awhile with this setup and a OWB holster. Suspenders take weight off belt, suspenders are invisible this way and pants don't sag.

    SOunds like keeping pants up might be tough, even without a gun & holster. The suspenders should solve the problem of keeping your pants up. A good quality gun belt will help keep the gun in place.

    Turn off the hip-hop music, and turn your hat around. Then your pants will stay up.

    Seriously, get a good belt made for carrying a gun.
