Helmet Size: Size down or up?

So I have a rather large head and have a tough time buying hats and now helmets. I'm usually in between sizes (7 1/2). I was wondering what is better: getting a helmet that fits snug at the largest setting or getting one that you size down (almost) all the way?

I wear a skull cap which makes a perfectly fitted helmet at the largest setting fit a lot tighter. When I go a size up and fit it down, it's slightly more comfortable but feels looser.

Any safety benefits/disadvantages to either? I play in a beginners roller hockey league. It's non checking but guys can't skate and crash into one another.
