Which size would you buy?

I need a suit and decided on one from Ann Taylor. The closest Ann Taylor is 45 minutes away and I have spent a small fortune returning things in the mail lately (although still cheaper than paying the gas to drive there and back). I have a 25 in waist: a zero has a 24.5 in waist and a 2 has a 25.5 in waist according to their website. I am wearing Eddie Bauer pants today that say they have a 25 in. waist for a size 2, but the behind is huge on me (I guess the waist is OK). Should I order the 2 knowing they will be slightly too big or should I go with the zero? I'd need a 2 for the jacket.

Thanks!

I guess if a zero could be snug around the waist you should get the 2. Usually you can exchange for free if it doesn't fit.

Another confirmation that 0 would be better and that their items run large. I'm a 25, too, and their 00 dresses fit me perfectly.

You should buy larger and take it to the tailors for your perfect fit. I recently took a bunch of stuff to the tailors and was so happy with the outcome. The cost of alterations outweighs clothes just sitting in the closet because of an ill fit.
