I found that I could very comfortably and effectively carry AIWB at 11:30 with the proper rig. With some fairly extensive tweaking and re-designing, I've gotten it to where it fits and works perfectly, still at the 11:30 carry position. For whatever reason, I can't find that perfect carry spot on the right side.
I have found the foam wedge to be critical for effective, comfortable AIWB carry.
Congratulations on your weight loss.
11:30ish is the only way I've found that I can aiwb comfortably.
But I prefer a lot of cant which gets the slide completely out of the way (for sitting/bending). I also use a small foam wedge (that I whittled out of a yoga block from Walmart) to push the grip in.
And with the soft loops, the holster has enough play that when I go to draw, the gun and holster shifts to the right (zero cant) for a good master grip, and pulls straight up.
I also like my belt to be somewhat loose so the gun can "float" around a little and not dig into my stomach and groin which is extremely uncomfortable to me. My Kore (ratchet) gun belt is very stiff and works great for this.
