eShakti: A Custom Made Dress review

Sample. Links.




I was approached by eShankti to see if I want to review a custom made dress from their site as part of their Real Fashion for Real People campaign. I for one jumped at the chance because being a pear shaped body it's so hard to find a dress that fits in BOTH areas top and bottom! Click down below what I think of this dress! 

I'm not the skinniest person out there. Coming in at a size 12 top and 16/18 pant it can be extremely hard to find a one piece clothing item that fits me in both places. Finding a dress that is above the knee and can still pass the bend over test (Does the dress cover your butt even when bending over?) impossible to find. 

When I saw that at eShakti you can make a customized dress I couldn't wait to order! 

I have to say it's really simple to navigate the website. Just find the clothing item you're interested in click it and right on the same page you can put in the custom sizing you need. I measured myself. Picked the above the knee hemline, 3/4 sleeves and submitted my order. I received my items within 3 weeks. 

I have to say I was super impressed as soon as I pulled my dress from the box. The cotton knit is beyond soft and stretchy. The first thing I thought as soon as I put it on was that it was a heavy weight, perfect for winter! 

I ordered this with a winter wedding reception I'm attending in mind. I want something short and fun, but still something that would keep me warm. Also it has to pass the bend over test, which it did is nothing short of a miracle. 

The stitching is amazing, so well made! No short cuts made with this dress  Another great thing is that there is a clip right in the bust area that I can shorten the amount of Vneck showing! I LOVE that! I know I'll be buttoning that up when I wear this to work! 

It has POCKETS! You heard me right! Pockets! I  love it! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I can stash a cell phone and a lipstick in those! 

I also think this is perfect for slipping a suit jacket over and wearing it to work! Perfect business professional outfit! 


I am fully impressed with the quality of this dress. Also how easy it is to customize this dress! As a plus size gal I totally recommend this site for buying dresses and clothing. I know I've been eyeing up another outfit that I can't wait to buy!
