I carry mine IWB @ 4:30*, untucked but covered buy a garment about one size larger than I would normally wear if I wasn't carrying e.g. My normal sweatshirt size is Large so I wear an Extra-Large.
It's comfortable and it doesn't print.
*3:00 bulges out too far for my liking.

Slide it back a litte so it blends better. I usually wear mine in the 3:30-4:00 position. Tuck in over it and put your cell phone case/clip over it in the front. The phone helps blend out the bulge. No one will ever notice.

if you move it a little back 330-400 oclock it will help hide the buldge. one thing I have noticed is that people really don't notice (even people who know your carrying) I know concealed means concealed, but as long as you cant actually see the gun many people just assume that any bulge is a cell phone.

There have been a lot of great responses. And all have their points. I remember one thing that the instructor of my CHL class stated about carrying your weapon and I'll paraphrase. (simply 'cause I can't remember it word for word)
In Texas, with concealed carry, the average 'Joe' or 'Jane' aren't trained to look for something out of the ordinary. (Like your gun bulge on your hip.) As long as it doesn't 'print' or 'shadow' the form of your gun, you're good to go. Typically, those that are trained observers, like an LEO, will know that you are carrying a weapon.
Final conclusion, wear something that is comfortable. The bulge shouldn't be a problem unless you're anal like me and it doesn't look that good with your outfit.
