Review: eShakti "We Design, You Customize"*

Hi Ladies!
Today I am going to share with you a unique clothing company called eShakti. eShakti is an online custom clothing retailer. They have tons of unique dresses, tops, and skirts that are all custom made to your liking. Their sizes range from 0-36W which I think is awesome. It doesn't matter if you are petite or plus size, any dress, skirt, etc on their site can be custom made to fit you. They prefer to get your exact measurements to ensure that the clothes will fit you like a glove. However, they also have standard sizes.

Next is the customization.  eShakti also gives their customers the option of custom designing their clothing. While you can certainly purchase the dresses and other clothing items as is, you could also change things on the dress such as the length, neckline, and sleeves. I think that is really cool. They also make two piece outfits including crop tops and matching skirts.

I feel like there is some variety of clothing styles on this site. From conservative to more more fun and flirty. There are some trendy pieces as well. They have a pretty large selection of vintage/50's style dresses which I feel is the largest style that they make. Though vintage style clothing is not my style per say, I still think that the dresses and skirts are really pretty.

eShakti offers some greats sales and discounts. They also offer a $25.00 coupon when you register and place your first order on their site.

eShakti was nice enough to send me a sample dress to review. I originally chose the Empire waist graphic cotton dress. I thought that the pattern was fun and that the colors would be a nice transition into the fall. Instead of giving them my measurements, I looked at the sizing chart and assmued that I was a size small (since I am usually a size 6 in dresses). Aside from my bust area, the dress fit me pretty well. I did have an issue with the length. It was very long. One thing I must note, when ordering dresses, do not go by pictures for length. Make sure that you read the details of the dress. I did not do this and just assumed that the dress would fall a little above the knee from the sample picture. It actually came a bit below the knee. If I read this ahead of time, I would have known to ask for it to be customized to fall a few inches above the knee. I told eShakti about the length issue and they offered to send me a new dress that was shorter. When I got the new dress it didn't fit quite like the first though it was the same size. Jane, the Media Relations rep apologized and offered to send me any dress that I would like. I ended up choosing the dress below.
I thought that this dress fit me very well. This time around I sent in my exact measurements which I think is the best way to go. Since you aren't trying the dress on ahead of time, giving your exact measurements will give a more precise fit. This dress was supposed to be "short" but was still a little bit long for my liking. The fabric of the dress was very light and flowy. I thought it was very comfortable. I love the pockets on the dress and think they are a nice touch. The stitching and detailing are well done and you can tell that the dress was made with care.

Overall, I really love the idea of eShakti. I have never heard of or seen anything quite like it before. I do feel that they need to add more trendy/youthful items on the site to broaden their range of customers. If you are looking for unique clothing made to your liking, this is a great site to check out.
