It's true, our sizing is somewhat variable. It's not unusual for many customers to be a a Small in one garment of our line and a Medium in another. This is, in part, due to the fact that our designs vary. Some things are cut roomier for more size range and some things are cut for a more snug fit. Also, we do small batch work and because there are sometimes variations in fabric between shipment and suppliers, we may even have some variation in fabric (black vs. white/dyed) within a specific garment.
All that being said, our things are stretchy and do "give" or relax a bit as you wear them, so there is some room to play within the sizing department. When attempting to figure out your size, we suggest that you look at the description and sizing for each individual garment. We have given each garment a very specific size range in numbers next to the letter for the size. For example, sometimes a Small runs from 2-4, sometimes it's range is more like a 4-6.
When ordering bottoms, we do suggest you go as small as you feel comfortable as bottoms stretch out a bit more when you wear them, and no one wants to have their pants falling down!
If we have any major changes in how a particular garment is running due to fabric variation, we will put that information in the description of the garment as well.
Of course, you can always call us or email us for help with choosing the correct size and we will GLADLY work with you to help you make the best choice.
