Considering almost every brand will fit a little differently and even different cardigans from the same brand can be cut differently, it is pretty hard to give a definite answer. If a medium normally gives you a nice fitted look then I'd probably start with that because I doubt you wanna go up a size and sizing down could be too short in the length or sleeve. Just go to the mall and try some on to get a better idea, I'm sure you can find some nice cardigans from big brands like J. Crew or Ralph Lauren (unless you have a certain one in mind).

Pretty sure with RL and J Crew to go with small.
I wear a medium, but when I buy pieces with a fitted look in mind I go with a small.

I honestly wouldn't know, but I can guess that they should run smaller than TTS, if not TTS. Anyone here willing to correct me, please do so.

Comme Des Garcon fits slim. Fitting is kinda like W+H. My friend is like same height and wears a Medium, that fits like M-S. It really depends if u like fitted clothing or loose.

i'd stick tts since i like fitted.
