    With a lot of holsters having loop Velcro on the back these days, a piece of iron-on Velcro (or stitched-on if youíve got the ability) on the hem of your shirt can lock it to your holster. This is especially handy for training classes and practice sessions that involve lots of draws.

    Key is getting a long enough shirt. I used to wear medium undershirts but switched to large to get sleeves that donít bunch up in my pits, and the extra length doesnít hurt as far as staying tucked. I prefer fruit of the loom based on experience so far. I wear a-shirts/wifebeaters under polos or t-shirts when those are my cover garment.

    I personally canít carry without one. I just got the COVID vaccine and just for a quick and easy concealment solution, I tucked my undershirt in over my gun so it was hidden ďgood enoughĒ when I had to unbutton my button up to get the shot. It was miserable for the short time it took to get in and out. No, the VCD grips didnít help. But I just hate the feeling of whatever material the gun is made of sticking to my skin. Itís only worse in hot weather.

    ETA: the yoga block wedge on my holster does help keep the shirt tucked. In fact, untucking it without removing the holster is difficult.

    This X1000. I use plane Jane Hanes wife beaters. Tuck'em into undies and they dont come up through normal use. Now if I'm working my draw stroke, eventually they will wiggle up. But EDC stuff, even working out and such... no issues.

    I like the ribbed cotton tank tops as an undershirt when itís a bit cold out. But theyíre too hot for me during Texas summers. I just got these rayon undershirts:

    Itís not hot enough yet here in Texas to see how well theyíll do, but I hope theyíll work out for me.

    What do I think about undershirts? Never wore one. Personally I think it is too bulky donít like the feel. I also like not thinking about all the intricacies that come with undershirts.

    Do you need to wear a undershirt? Try without for awhile, just my 2 cents

    You must live where it's warm.

    And/or not have any chest/body hair...trying to draw with any kind of urgency can be painful without an undershirt

    Iíve tried it many times, but I donít like my skinís sweat dripping onto the grip and holster. It gets very hot and humid here in Texas.

    I've worn these Coolmax t-shirts in tan under my armor and tan uniforms. Kept using them when I moved to CID and dress shirts. Feel like cotton but has some kind of moisture wicking properties and no funk. Works well so far.

    I have a couple of those Coolmax tank tops and like them. I also have these bamboo rayon shirts that work really well, too:
