While I am definitely in the “curvy girl” headquarters of things, I carry a lot of it up top, making it nearly impossible to find clothes that fit well and that function well. Not to mention that I love to wear dresses, but because of my body size, I end up with an ill-fitting dress that is too tight here, too loose there and just crazy looking over there. It was this that made me even more excited to learn about eShakti, an online women’s clothing retailer that goes beyond just “selling” women’s apparel. The people at eShakti care about their customers, creating beautiful styles available from size 0 to 36W – and even customizing the clothing to your exact measurements if you want! I received a custom dress from eShakti in exchange for my honest opinion.
What did I think?
I am absolutely blown away by the eShakti promise and business. They offer beautiful, classic clothing including dresses, shirts, pants and even bridesmaid dresses! Their designs are stylish, flattering and modern takes on classic beauty. As I browsed the site, I came upon what is likely my favorite feature ever: Real Fashion for Real People. In this feature, you can see actual women wearing their dresses – not stick thin models who look fantastic in everything. Hourglass, pear shape, straight up and down – every body type is represented here – I love it!
After spending literal hours combing the eShakti site and narrowing down the field, I ended up choosing the Pleat Trim Houndstooth Print Dress. This soft woven crepe dress has the perfect mix of hard and soft with the houndstooth print and feminine styling that I knew I could get a lot of wear out of it as it could be worn to work with a blazer, out with friends with a pair of leggings, or out on the town with a sassy pair of heels! I had a friend help me obtain my measurements which were easy to obtain with eShakti’s easy to follow directions and pictures. First, I could not believe how quickly this custom dress arrived – I really thought it would take several weeks – I mean, I have taken a fully completed dress to the tailor and it takes weeks to get back sometimes! Second, I loved the dress in person even more than I did online. It really fits beautifully and is quite flattering with the way it sits just right since it was made just for me! I have not had a custom dress since the last wedding I was in, and that cost me nearly $400 and was worn for just one night! This dress, at under $100 regular price (but check for their amazing deals and specials!), is a steal as I will wear it a ton!
If you are looking for clothing that will actually fit and flatter your body, eShakti is the place to go! Now you can forget uncomfortable fitting rooms with bad lighting in exchange for sitting in the comfort of your own home. Don’t like it when you get it? No problem, eShakti has a no-questions-asked, hassle-free return policy!
Shakti means power in Sanskrit, so their name is a play on representing the power of the internet – but for me, it is the power of bringing beautiful clothing to all women and not just a select group. When you feel like you look good, often times confidence and better self-esteem will follow. You will walk taller, speak with more authority and gain influences. To me, that is powerful and that is eShakti!
