    Belly Band Bunching

    I really like belly bands for larger handguns but they have a habit of not staying flat and start to bunch up, what started out as a 5" band around my body ends up 2-3" after wearing it for a while.
    Any suggestions as to how to keep it from doing this?

    I've never had the problem. Mine is a Galco. Yours?

    I guess you could get a garter and remove the hose attachment thingys,then attach the hose attachment thingys to the bottom of the belly band,find a set of hose in a color that compliments your hairy legs.Put the belly band and hose on and then attach the thingys to the hose,that there should keep the belly band from rolling on you ,but everyone else will be "rolling " on the ground

    I am not sure who made it, I bought it at a gun show.

    I've got a "Defender" (a pretty good one for around $30 or so online) band and never have had a problem. It sounds to me like it's your particular band may be the problem. Was it a cheap one?

    You might try wearing a fairly snug "wife beater" under the band. It helps to hold it in place and also helps with sweat and chafing issues etc.

    I've never had a "bunching problem" with my Galco Belly Band either. And I've got plenty of belly to bunch!

    That's the one I use. I sometimes wear a t-shirt under it as the velcro area is a bit stiff and can be irritating at the edges. They now have options for changing the angle of the holster and a thumb break. I might get another one with at least an fbi cant as it conceals well for work

    I looked at the Defender and the Galco online and both look much better than mine. I think I will give the defender a try with the thumb break.
