If you are going to wear t-shirt and shorts most of the time the Remora is the way to go.
I have one for my S&W 442 and Glock 19. They really do work as advertised. The Glock in the Remora benefits from a heavier belt, but the J frame is fine with just sweatpants or shorts.
I used the Remora and J frame as my carry gun on a 2000 mile cross country trip, and it worked out perfectly, even IWB for 8 hours a day on the road.
I have a N8² Tactical Professional for my Glock 23 and love love love it! I'd highly recommend you consider it.
Remora, id say get the ART cut since the grip is a little smaller on the shield.
I had a PJ Holster kydex iwb when I had my shield that I liked a lot.
