Not wearing a belt is a big issue when trying to carry. There are some options out there like what neophyte mentioned but IMO, they don't work as well as a holster that is attached to a solid gun belt. The reason for that opinion is that a holster attached to a belt simply offers better control of the weapon. It holds it in the same place which allows for fast draw as well as ease of reholstering. The soft holsters with elastic do not lend themselves at all to reholstering(I don't want to have to take my pants down to reholster my weapon).
The best advice I can give you is try a few. Yes, you spend a little money but it's really the only way to find out what works best for you and very few people prefer the same carry rig, worn in the exact same way.
