Can someone explain to me the logic behind buying levis STF jeans one size smaller?

I've read a lot about the STF's and looking to buy a pair. I was thinking of buying my waist size (36) to get a slimmer look after shrinking but I've read people are actually going DOWN a waist size. Wouldn't this be way too tight after shrinking?

The reason I ask is because I can barely put on a 34' ...I would think that a 34' in STF would just worse after letting it shrink..

Or can this denim also stretch?

Get a 35" or should fit comfortably before soak. Just because sizing down works for internet mangina's doesn't mean it would work for you.

Except in the length, so don't fuck that up.

Also, next time please use one of the sticked threads for questions like this.
