I'm pretty big and i find it makes it easier. I am 5'11" @260(i think im dropoping, but anyway) and i carry IWB at 8-8:30(left handed). My big a$$ makes for excellent cover lol.
If i carry in front of my waistband my gut hangs out enough to push my shirt away from printing. This is not comfortable when sitting, but it covers well.

Big guys usually have a good little pocket in the small of thier back where you can easily fit a IWB holster, thats what I do ant it works well.

im a big guy (5'9 290 ish) and i carry OWB with a Galco Matrix holster at the 4 oclock position apprx. (right handed). im a lefty but shoot right. This holster rides real nice and close but not to the point of rubbing, it also is WAAAY more comfy than IWB, from a big guys point of view.

The Crossbreed SOB is a good choice. It's pretty comfortable.

being a chubby fella myself, I go with a Galco IWB Stow-N-Go with my XD Subbie at 3:00. Very comfy, and still easy to draw from.

I have been tempted to go with OWB and some sort of vest, but that just screams "Hi! I have a Firearm!" to me...

At 5'11'' 205 lbs, me likes the bellyband. Although it's only practical for about half the year because of weather. I also keep a knife in one of the two mag pockets. Unfortunately, I can't stand anything stuck inside my waistband, so the warmer months are a bit more tricky for me.
