I wear casual cargo shorts with a belt to the gym and the pockets are roomie enough to carry a small howitzer. Not the weight of the gun you have to worry about, but how you are dressing while wearing the gun matters most. And if you are concerned about the .380 pistol cool factor, the Beretta 84F trumps the SIG P238 all day long.
    I completely understand the concept of dressing around the gun and have been carrying for years. However I don't think it's too much to find a pocket option with my most comfortable around the house attire. If it's after dinner and a shower and just watching tv, I don't want to always put on a holster and belt.

    you might also take a look at the Springfield Armory P238 clone, the 911. Basically a P238 but I have seen these as little as $350 which is a bunch cheaper than the SIG. You should be able to stuff one of these in your jammies pocket with little ill effect.

    I'm actually going the cost alternative route on this one.

    I read elsewhere about people hooking their holsters to the drawstring, particularly using Remora with a clip and reinforced top.

    Since its softer, it's easier to draw from on a soft belt line. I've been doing it tonight with my 365 and Vedder LightTuck and it works surprisingly well, even drawing. I placed an order for a clip Remora.

    I'll just keep wearing the 365 despite how much I would love a 238.

    For me, itís a SW 340pd in a Sticky Holster. Gym shorts, sweats, etc. offer no problem when carrying this ultra light little hand cannon.

    Yes sir I do, all the time up to when the temp gets to be 35* and staying there. I use a DeSantis "The Nemesis" pocket holster and have never had an issue with it what so ever.

    P938 in a Remora RFT W/ UltiClip. Works well with sweats for me.
