I think it depends upon the designer and on-line store you buy the clothing from. Seems to me that higher-priced clothes are more true to size, especially with plus-sized clothing. At stores that specialize in plus-size clothing, I actually fit into an average size, whereas the same item at a big-box store may take me into the 2 and 3X's. It's a little humiliating. I try not to focus on the number too much, but how I look in the garment.
Even more humiliating, my husband wears Large sweatshirts, and when held up to my 2X Large sweatshirts, they prove to be bigger. I understand that men's sizes are different, but being smaller than him, I would expect to wear a relative size.
Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!
Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!
Any effort is better than no effort!
