Default Looking for Low Ride OWB Holster for 1911

I have discovered with my short frame with short torso, love handles and not the broadest shoulders in the world, make concealed carry difficult for me. The gun I'd like to use is my S&W 1911sc.

I'm looking for an OWB holster that does NOT ride high, trigger guard at belt level, probably neutral cant. I find that 10 works best for me. Want to carry my 1911 commander size 4.25' barrel, not some small gripped plastic gun.

I prefer leather... thanks for any ideas.

Loosen the belt a couple of notches and your problem will be solved.

Oh brother, that is rich LOL. I think part of the problem is my girlish physique and I've run out of notches!!!

Thanks snubbyfan for the offer. I'm looking for neutral cant and a thumb break specifically.

No thumb break, but the Davis Leather 15450 Gunsite Omega holster (with dropped loop) or the Galco Gunsite Training Holster sound like what you are after.
