I had never heard of eShakti before they approached me about giving one of their garments a try for a review, and I can honestly say that they are one I'll keep loving beyond this post. eShakti is an online boutique that provides vintage-inspired, custom-made garments to sizes 0-36W; making these beautiful pieces available to women of all shapes and sizes. On their site, you can chose a pre-selected size (sm, md, lg, etc) using an estimated bust, waist, hip, and height measurement. You can also take it a step further by taking more detailed measurements of yourself for the "custom" option. eShakti also allows you to chose the length, sleeve design, neckline, and other details like pockets so that it truly becomes your garment.
eShakti uses DHL to deliver your custom clothing items in about 7-9 business days after it's complete; which I thought was very reasonable for an item being made specifically from my measurements. If you're going to order from eShakti, I do suggest taking the extra steps by giving more detailed measurements for a custom-fit. In fact, the dress I ordered first with the small, medium, large option, was a white cotton-blended baby doll dress, that was ill-fitting and disproportionate. However, the eShakti representatives quickly offered to return the garment and assist me in choosing another. I was very pleased with how timely and politely they handled the return. And, I was so happy with the result of this dotted illusion-necked beauty. It fits my body perfectly, and is made from high-quality fabric with great movement. The first day I wore it, I received tons of compliments and inquiries about where I got it. This dress meets my all-black dress-code at the bridal shop, too, so I'll get even more use out of it!
If you're looking for something a little special for going to a wedding, work event, or just to wear for every day use, you should definitely visit eShakti's site. The fact that they are working towards making custom clothing more readily available to the masses is such a great approach. Their vintage-flare and customizable options are sure to compliment you no matter what size you may be!
