I wear a gun belt for all carry. Makes a huge difference even with IWB.
A regular belt will sag with IWB; it will sag and flop with OWB

I can see the value of a good gun belt when I carry OWB (normal belts let it sag) but when I wear my Galco King Tuck it doesn't seem to be as much an issue.
So should I consider a gun belt for IWB carry too?
no i use a harness thick belt from local boot shop. way cheaper than a gun belt also looks like a reg belt. remember ccw meanes concealed not adv.with a gun belt.
Try a true gun belt with all carry and you be the judge.

I use the specops Better BDU belt and it works great. I never tuck my shirt in so it does not show and it is very thin. It holds up IWB and OWB very well and it is cheap. I bought a blackhawk CQC belt for dressier occasions and it is also very good but it was much more expensive.

I don't even wear a gun belt for OWB carry. Don't see were the sagging come in. My gun still stays nice and tight in my body.

It's all fine and dandy with many belts for iwb carry (for me) until nature calls. Moving the trousers downward for this task is when the belt stiffness really keeps it all situated correctly and stable.
A good gun belt is a necessity, it prevents your IWB from becoming an ankle holster. Yes I always wear a belt.

I pretty much only wear gun belts. But from time to time when carrying a lighter weight gun I use a rugular belt. I have some reversiable dress belts and Levi belts and Carhett belts that carry light weight guns as well as gun belts. I just don't carry light weight guns verty often.
