I've heard of some people buying APC's true to size and being happy with them. It's just a rare sight is all, since it has been accepted by most to size down a bit. Usually, people that stay true to size are looking for a more relaxed fit and just wear a belt to take care of waist stretch. Is that what you're doing?
They fit perfectly in my opinion, I have a pair sized down 1 and they've stretched past my waist size (29) oddly enough.
I just prefer them true to size
That is very strange. Glad to hear that the tts worked out for you, though!
petit standard sz 28 i like the fit , but i am worried from stretching, size down one more? they are tight at waist. i barely can button the top one.
I would say keep them. In my opinion, just barely being able to button the top button is a perfect fit for APC's. Not to mention, your fit looks nice in that picture. If you go any tighter, you're looking at something closer to a skin-tight fit, which I don't think looks as nice as a clean skinny fit (which is what you have there).
