^^ So if (like me), you wear 28 pants in everything, then you have an actual 30'' waist. The sizing down is automatically 2 (for vanity adjustment), plus 1-3, depending on your preferences. If you only go one more, then you'll get a 27, which will stretch to a 28-29 by the end, so a bit loose. If you get a 26, they'll be super tight at first but will eventually stretch to a slim 28. ("Total" of 4 down)
Sizing down 1 more is done, but will be maybe not so slim, many regret this. Most people would go for the 26 in your position. A few daring people go for the 25, but I wouldn't recomend it and most wouldn't either.
I'm in exactly the same boat and will get a 26. I tried them on and could just
get them buttoned up so they should stretch out to be like a normal slim 28 pants within a few weeks.
