How can I tell what size I am?

Sizing varies between our items, so we recommend using these tools to better determine your ideal size:

• The Product Measurements and Fit Guide can be found on every product page by selecting the Product Measurements and Fit tab. Measurements are provided in centimetres, while the garment is laying flat. Some measurements (i.e. waist, chest, etc.) have already been doubled, factoring in the full circumference. You can compare these measurements to similar pieces you already own.

• Additional style and fit details are included in the Details tab on each product page.

A design/ size that I like is sold out. Will you be getting more in?

As we source our fabrics and produce each design in small quantities, designs may sell out quickly. We always try to restock our popular styles and re-invent our classics in new colours, shapes and fabrics, so keep a lookout for them.

Due to the nature of online shopping, items may occasionally be restocked after customer returns and exchanges are made, so please keep checking back on our website.

If an item that you like is out of stock, simply leave your details under the ‘Notify me when back in stock’ text on the respective product page or emailing us at We’ll let you know if the piece is due to become available again.

How do I wash and take care of my pieces?

To keep your garments as fresh and pretty as the day they arrived, we recommend washing all pieces in cold water and hanging them dry. If you need a guide, just check out our garment care page.

Will you be offering more sizes?

We offer sizes XXS - XL in select styles. As we continue to grow, we hope to become more size inclusive and offer more size and fit options.

If you’re unsure about the size and fit of a product you love, email us at for advice.

Esse's Values

Creating the best product

We are incessant about improving processes in each stage of our supply chain because we want to make the best product possible.

From working steadily to make all areas of our business more sustainable to developing new ways to do things, we always do our best to move the needle forward.

Love the fit and material!

I always love how comfortable Esse's pieces are and this was no exception! Love how the colour flatters my skin, and the fit is snug but hugs me in all the right areas!

Comfy, flattering, and versatile!

I'm not one for fitted dresses, but I felt really confident in this piece. It's really comfortable, and I like that it can be worn with the two different necklines. A very flattering piece!

Versatility at its best

Tried on this dress at the Boutiques Fair & I loved it the moment I put it on. I love how I can wear it V-neck or Bateau, I love how it can be casual & formal too. I definitely see lotsa milage on this dress.
