In most helmets, the size of the shell is the same. They just change the padding inside to determine sm. md. and lg. But there are designs where you can choose the size of the shell as well. Check with the vendor which helmets come in smaller shell.

Seems like many lids have only 2 shell sizes. I have noticed that the cheaper lids seem to have big shells

I kind of felt the same way after I dieted to lean my self out. I say who cares as long as you are safe. Also a jacket really helps balance it out, in my case anyways.
