Such a beautiful piece

I chose the full length crop in Terra and it’s so soft and comfy. It will make a great layering piece through the fall and winter, and when the warmer weather comes, it will go great with a tan.

Comfy and goes with everything!

I only recently got this top and have already worn it multiple times (black gauze). It's the perfect weight for summer days, but still feels chic enough to wear out on summer nights. I love that it's versatile - I've worn it both ways depending on the look. The crop is a great length, especially if you already like high waisted bottoms. I will get so many wears out of this top!

Super comfy and very flattering.

This is super comfortable, breezy and has an amazing fit. I am a 38DD (more of a fuller cup) and the size 4 fits perfectly and is not tight at the chest at all. The material is super good quality, breathable and comfy. The regular length is already a little short and very similar to a crop top, so no need to go shorter if you don’t want to. I paired this with the Lena Pant in the matching color and I get sooo many compliments on how flattering it looks. You won’t find a more flattering top.

I love this top!

I got the tencel gingham and I really love it! The texture is great, so is the boxiness of the cut, and I love that is reversible (I love both ways). I'm always wanting to wear this top!

Lovely top, fit was off for me

I love Sotela fabrics and colors, and this top in both the linen and cotton gauze is gorgeous in cacao. Unfortunately, the fit is off for me—the armholes are too large and the chest just a tad too tight, so going down a size for the armholes wasn’t an option for me. I think this is just an off fit for me, since this top clearly works extremely well for other women. It is one of the few Sotela items that has not worked out for me. The Lena pant, Mariposa and Paloma dresses are items I have and absolutely love!!

 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.
