You're getting indigo right? Because the black raws do fit a bit smaller, but I don't think they warrent a size change from the indigos.
honestly I like mine a little looser in the thighs, so I usually size down 1 or go true to size for a fit like this:
but if you want a slimmer fit like this:
size down 2. They'll be really tight at first, like to the point you shouldn't be able to button them fully but they stretch about 2 sizes, and fairly quickly(I'd say they stretch about 1 size in the first day, then 1 more size in the next couple weeks.)
And to be completely honest, if they're sold out of the MIJ's I would just wait. In my experience the MII raws just don't have the same quality or fit as the ones MIJ.
let me know if you have any other questions.
