By default custom option is manage qty of variance that means one of a size.

It will better to use configurable products ,if want to managed inventory of each size.

More details on http://www.magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/difference-between-custom-variants-options-and-configurable-product-type

and @Marius post Product Types: custom options vs bundle vs configurable

  • so, i have now more 1000 simple products with custom options, how i can do this for simple products? maybe possible add new field or value and if value = 0, size in frontend is disable or somehow
