Seems I'm not the only tubby looking for options. I'm giving serious thought to the suspenders myself, hopefully I can wear them under a t-shirt without them sticking out like a sore thumb.

I'm a double extra large petit myself, so I can speak to this. I've not found an IWB holster that I like, because I already got plenty of a$$ in my jeans, if you follow me.
I carry three ways, and carry every day. I use a Desantis Speed Scabbard for my 1911 on my belt. In the colder weather I'll sometime use an old Jackass (Galco Leather these days) Miami Classic shoulder rig, with double mag's on the off side. I've changed the harness from brown to black, only because the black harness disappears against a black tee shirt better than the brown did.
I also carry a Kimber Solo Carry in my right front pocket, sans holster. You just have to ensure you get the dust bunnies and lint out of it every now and again. Doesn't print, and it's easy to stand in a crowded room, with your pistol in your hand, and nobody know it.
Good luck and welcome to our world. Be safe.

As I've gotten somewhat larger in the waist in the last many years. I also carry "K" framed revolvers, and have found that as long as the center of gravity of the revolver is below the wais they are quite comfortable. My 4" 10 my peek out a little below my shirt, but the 2" remains quite concieled. My biggest problem is finding a holster that carries like that.

I carry in a tuckable IWB at 4:00 or so, in a Kydex holster I made (Kydex and Chicago Screws from Knifekits.com). It is quite comfortable except when using chairs with arms. The grip pushes in on my muffin top and there's very little printing with a full-sized duty pistol.
Wishing you the best...

Before I shed the previous 30lbs, I used a Smart Carry SmartCarry - Concealed Gun Holsters holster to carry my LC9. I now use one for my S&W Shield. When I opt to carry my SR9C or others... :), I use a Crossbreed Super Tuck in the 4:30 - 5:00 position.

The cheep pocket holster (Allen $7.99) I have works to conceal but my fingers don't get the best grip so I'm looking for another option there. As soon as I can find a good IWB and belt combination for my Desert Eagle I will try that. Keep the posts coming!
Have a happy new year everyone.

I'm 5'10" and around 260. I have just started my search for a ccw and holster setupand plan on getting my permit shortly. I've about decided on an iwb theis or crossbreed holster. Any other large guys have any input on these holsters for comfort and concealability?

I'm a fatty and use a N82 Tactical Professional at about 4 o'clock position with a S&W M&P9c. No big printing issues wearing normal T-shirts, and comfortable as can be. I recommend it. Pictures will come later.
