measurement wise i fit into a xs-s PFD. weight wise i was told i should be in a larger PFD. I still have to cinch in the straps on the size i have. If i get to big it will lift up over my head. a bit confusing. Not safe if it it rides up. The size i have still floats me. So am i ok then?

Essentially ALL Type III PFDs have the same amount of flotation - the minimum required by CG regs. 15.5 pounds.

and stays on during rescues, and doesn't float off during roll sessions, then you have achieved pfd nirvana.
