A few weeks back, I was given the opportunity to try out an online store I hadn’t heard of called eShakti. On the surface, it looks much like any other online store for women – dress, pants, tops, skirts and more are all available to browse and order and they go all the way up to size 36!
What makes this site unique, though, is the option to customize your orders – and I mean really customize. I browsed through the site and landed on this dress – a floral print dress with a sash, perfect for summer.
I played with the customization before ordering. First, you enter your height as a starting point (amazing, especially for you tall and petite ladies out there) and then you can make various changes throughout the garment. I opted to keep the length of the dress knee-length, but I had the option to go shorter or longer. I also had the option to tweak the neckline to whatever shape I wanted, and I could also add sleeves which I decided to go for! You can even choose pockets or no pockets on the dress, and OBVIOUSLY I chose pockets (because who wouldn’t)?
The customization adds another $7.50 to the item, which to me is totally worth it to get something that will fit your style perfectly. I’d also recommend following their size guide pretty closely to ensure a perfect fit.
Since eShakti custom makes the item, it takes a little longer to arrive, but when it does you have your own unique piece of clothing to enjoy. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the dress and so happy with the fit. Overall, it was a huge success. I threw on a pair of nude pumps but I can totally see wearing this dress with some wedges for the summer and a cross-body bag for a summer Sunday stroll 🙂
This photo turned out a little blurry but I still love it – I think it captures how whimsical the dress is!
