The revolvers the OP would be considering would not be 6 shooters, they would likely be 5 shooters making the cylinder smaller and more concealable, I have a J frame Smith and it will print in my normal jeans if I don't use a pocket holster, which I don't think is smart anyway, and IWB its very concealable.
For myself I would choose a J frame Smith or one of the Ruger snubbies, whichever you prefer. I also like the Smith Shield it comes in 9 and 40, it is very thin which makes it nice for cc also it doesn't have a mag safety which is a feature don't want on any gun, the Ruger LC9 has the mag safety so if for some reason you have a malfunction and the magazine falls out, you will not be able to fire the round which is already in the chamber.
