Not all the same, runs large

I find NYDJ sizing to be inconsistent. Ordered this dress initially in both black and the Paintsplash print in size L. Both were way too big, but looked promising enough so that I reordered in size M. Paintsplash has wonderful bright colors but the fabric is so slippery that waist tie won't stay cinched. Black fabric has a more crepe-like texture so the tie stays tied and dress is flattering. I'm 5'9" and the hem hits just above my knees - longer than it appears in the illustration on the website. I'm somewhere between a size 10 and a size 12 and the "shapewear" included with this size M dress is too loose to be of any effect. I recommend that anyone ordering this dress consider sizing down.
