Calmer question

I swatched my Calmer and it came out true to gauge. I decided to go ahead and start knitting and my gauge seems off-- 7 stitches to the inch! Maybe this is due to the cables. At any rate, I fall between the XS and S as I need a finished garment that measures about 31 inches. I'm thinking that I'll just go ahead and make the small since my gauge is smaller. This stuff really stretches so I know it will fit, if not be a little big. My question is --for those of you who have used this yarn before--does Calmer stretch out and sag while it's being worn? If not, then I'm okay. I've done cotton things before that fit when you put them on then 6 hours later they appear to be a size or two too big! Will the stretch in this yarn prevent this from happening?
Thanks!

In my experiences, Calmer does not sag at all and holds up amazingly well.

It truly is unique among other cotton yarns, as it seems to have more wool-like properties than cotton-like. It doesn't sag or stretch out while being worn.
