The really cool thing about eShakti is that for an additional $7.50 you can get the dress custom-made to your exact measurements. This is perfect for people who struggle with being in between sizes. Of course you can always just go with a standard size too. Another cool feature is having the option to choose the length, sleeve type, and neckline of a dress. There is also an option to remove the pockets or embroideries – though I don't see why I would ever want to remove the cute birdies on this dress but that's just me :).
With the chance to have a dress sized exactly to my proportions, I decided on custom sizing. I also changed the length of my dress to above-knee-length (it was below-knee by default) and kept the neckline, pockets, and embroidery the same.
When I finally received the dress and tried it on, it fit perfectly! The zipper closure on the side was a bit tough to zip up at first, but once I had it closed the dress fit like a glove. Being made of a cotton and poplin blend, it’s sturdy yet light and breezy, which is a good thing when you live in Southern California. I was a bit worried about the white fabric of this dress being see-through but it wasn’t a problem. It’s very comfortable to wear and especially fun to twirl in! I styled the dress with sheer black tights, black-and-white heels, my Sourpuss Floozy purse, and a white flower :).
I’m pretty happy with this dress and it’s likely that I will order from eShakti again. I love that their dresses fit a wide range of women. They offer sizes from 0-36W! In their mission statement, they say: “at eShakti, we never want to tell a woman her size is not available. We believe that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their absolute best.” I wholeheartedly agree that all women should feel beautiful in their clothing!
