Sizing

 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 we can! We want to keep things positive and simple. 

 


Based on the guide above, measure yourself to compare with the garment's measurements under the 'sizing and fit' tab. Use the garment's measurements to see which size you fall into. 
For example, if you have a 38" bust, 31" waist and 41" hip, you would be a size 2 in most items. 

Size 0 fits traditional sizes 0-2
Size 1 fits traditional sizes 2-6
Size 2 fits traditional sizes 6-8
Size 3 fits traditional sizes 8-10
Size 4 fits traditional sizes 10-12
Size 5 fits traditional sizes 12-14
Size 6 fits traditional 14-16
Size 7 fits traditional 18-22
Size 8 fits traditional 24-26
Size 9 fits traditional 26-28
Size 10 fits traditional 28-30
