Oasis Midi Dress


Size Guide

The Oasis Dress truly embodies our desire to make clothing that fluctuates with you and adapts to your body's ever changing shape. With a shirred bust and elastic arm holes, this dress is designed to love your curves and move with you. Three tiers on the skirt give the perfect midi length. 

We love it styled off the shoulder for a fun summer look, or with the sleeves up for a more sophisticated square neckline. 

The Oasis Dress is available with short sleeves and 3/4 length sleeves.

Material and Care 

1. Fabric: Organic Cotton Double Gauze

Fiber Content: 100% Organic Cotton 

Description: This double gauze fabric is incredibly soft and flowy. It is lightweight and breathable, a light breeze will give this fabric movement. Double gauze is made up of two layers of fine gauze seamlessly tacked together making it opaque. We recommend wearing skin colored undergarments with the white double gauze.

Care: Hand wash and hang dry as the elastic shirring can be delicate!

Love it!

This is one of my favorite dresses! The fabric feels so nice and breathable and I love how amazing I feel wearing this dress. I love it and receive so many compliments when I wear it!

Beautiful dress!

I absolutely love this dress. It is comfortable and beautiful and fits incredibly well. I went with the same size I wear in Sotela shirts, which worked perfectly. Highly recommend.

Beautiful and comfortable!

The perfect dress

I'm obsessed with this dress. It's so beautiful, and easy to dress up or down. I love the versatility of the sleeves (off-the shoulder, or fully covered), and the colour (Agave) is absolutely stunning!!

I wasn't sure which size to go with, so I emailed Becca, who suggested a size 1 for me, and it's perfect. Obviously, there's a fair amount of stretch, but I still think this was the best size for me! For reference, my measurements are 34-29-41

Marlise F.
Versatile and great finish!

I bought my Oasis Midi a few weeks back and absolutely love it. The fabric is a lovely weight (not too heavy, but still provides all the coverage you need), and the fit is perfect. I have quite a large chest and the top piece is wide enough to actually cover the bust and create a waist, which isn't always a given! Lastly, the dress is great for travelling because the gauze doesn't wrinkle. Throw it in your bag or suitcase and you're good to go at your destination!

 Sotela's approach to sizing is a little different. Instead of using the conventional small, medium and large, we've decided to change our wording because why not! We want to keep things simple and offer the most out of your clothing. 




Here's a step by step of how to choose your Sotela size:

  1. Measure yourself – This one is very important if you shop online, which as of now, I think we all are! Check out our tutorial to measure yourself because we use low hip measurements with our clothing. 
  2. Once you have your measurements, go to the product page for the garment you are interested in and click on the “Sizing and fit” tab or “Garment Measurements for Petite, etc.”
  3. The garment measurements on the product page will tell you the actual width and length of the garment. For example: the Ryan Trouser measures 26″ with an unstretched waistband and 42″ in the hip for the size 1.
  4. Based on your measurements, choose a size that is about 2″ more than your largest measurement. For example: I have a 39″ hip. The size 1 hip measures 42″ which gives me about 3″ of ease. The size 0 measures 40″ in the hip making it too small for me.
  5. Make sure to use your largest measurement when choosing a size, especially if you are looking at a jumpsuit or dress. If your bust is larger than your hip, I’d recommend choosing a size based on your bust because that ensures it will give sufficient ease for the rest of your body.
  6. Lastly, if you are still unsure, email us hello (at) with your measurements! We are happy to recommend a size.
