A belly holster is worn on the belly. Shoulder holster is worn on the shoulder. Hope that helps.

If you really wanted to you could wear a belly band in the same general position as a shoulder holster. Is this what you want to compare Gary?

A "Belly Band" holster is usually a large piece of elastic, sort of like an Ace bandage you'd use on your sprained ankle or a blood pressure cuff. They have a velcro closure and holster/pockets sewn into the elastic band. They're generally worn around the waist.

A shoulder holster can be made of any of the common holster materials such as leather or nylon. It hangs suspended from the shoulder by a strap, and has a suspension system that goes across to the opposite shoulder to help hold things in place, and distribute the weight.

Check out youtube vids on both. There are many.
I tried the belly band, it did not agree with my shape.

What works best will depend on which is bigger, your belly or your shoulders!

Not to be confused with "Cumberbun" (look it up)

A belly band is useful when you don't wear a belt or if you need ultra deep concealment. You can put it up high like a shoulder holster or as low as you can carry it. In warm weather it can make me too warm so when I use it I wear it low at or below the waist line. I use mine as a back support more than a holster. I just washed it and it's outside drying now.
