Admittedly I'm a big guy but I can carry a full size Glock 17 IWB with no real problem so I don't see how the Shield is too big. A good quality holster and belt are the key.
If you are looking at it for pocket carry its probably on the large size for that but the same can be said for the Ruger or Kahr single stack subcompacts. It's the trade off for carrying the 9mm. If you want a smaller, more comfortable pocket gun you need to drop to a .380 or even a .32 - .25 cal mouse gun.
