With as small as you are.. You honestly might have a hard time concealing a G19. I'm 6ft and 160lbs and found that the only place I could carry my G19 was IWB in a crossbreed style holster at 4-5 o'clock. Standing straight my G19 disappeared, but any time I ever bent over or sat down, it was fully exposed. My shirt would always just pull up over the grip exposing it. So unless you're planing in wearing extremely long shirts it will print or accidentally expose often.
My G26 was much better with that.
