Default Suggestions for AIWB holster only using UltiClips, no belt?

I hate wearing a belt unless I really have to. I have tried a few belts to try and get AIWB feeling comfortable but no dice. I normally wear shots and a regular tshirt. I have tried a Vedder light tuck with and without the claw. So far the most comfortable is with no belt just throw it in the shorts the problem is the weight drags down my shorts and you can see the clip. There is also not good retention on the clip.

UltiClips seem like a good solution but need them paired with a comfortable holster. I tried 4 o clock which felt better but then when I bend down/over it shows.

I'm new to carrying so trying to find the right thing like probably most of you have already gone through. Also tried a hybrid leather/kydex holster with 2 clips but that was even worse.

I don't know if this helps you or not. But Phlster has a new...contraption...coming out for wearing holsters without a belt...sort of.

I’ve been interested in the Enigma since I first heard about it. It looks like it’s going to be a great option for “tuckable” concealed carry.

You can replace your Vedder clips with these. https://discreetcarryconcepts.com/HL...ips™-c26960683 They have more options than UltiClip.

Won’t help with the weight problem though. Kind of need a belt for that, or suspenders I guess.

Tier1 makes good AIWB holsters with the option of getting the utiliclips on them.

They're really only recommended for smaller guns otherwise your pants start to sag.

I really have to question whether a holster help only by the waistband of a pair of shorts is going to work when you draw.

A real gunbelt is needed to support the holster for both carry and the draw.

Summer time, I usually AIWB because I'm in shorts and a t-shirt most of the time and it's easier for me to conceal. I found the trick is finding the right belt. I use one of these ratchet belts to get the right fit. They're pretty thick and rigid, so it'll hold the holster in the right spot, but they're still comfortable.

Most of your non belt carriers are ex NFL players who wear sweatpants with Glocks. I say ex because many of them dropped the gun while partying in a club.

Guess you have never visited a Woman's CCW Facebook group.
Seems 90% of them don't wear anything but leggings!!
No belts, no pants, bunch of bedazzled guns and holsters, guns carried in their boob area.
Makes me cringe as a Woman to see that crap.

I have not tried this belt, but we have other belts by this company and they are good. This one is meant to be worn without going through belt loops.
