When I look at clothing online, I find myself thinking.
I wish that skirt was a little longer. That would be great if it wasn't so low cut. Too bad that's sleeveless. Or worst of all. That is PERFECT but they don't make it/sold out of it in my size.
When I do try things on they fit correctly here but not there, too loose and too tight all at the same time.
I could have all my clothes altered to fit better. But who can afford that?
I could do some alterations myself but it took me three years just to hem my jeans...
Several months ago I was introduced to eShakti
I had never heard of them before so I checked out the website. I was intrigued by what I saw.
eShakti features retro inspired clothing. Dresses, tops, skirts, cardigans, jackets. All customizable.
? According to my computer, that's not even a word. It's a word at eShakti!
At eShakti you have so many options to create the perfect piece for you.
Love that dress but wish it was longer or shorter? Change the hem length.
Wish the sleeves were different? Change them!
Not sure about the neckline? Fix it.
Oh, and... The dresses and skirts come with POCKETS
Have a personal vendetta against pockets? Why don't you like pockets? What did they ever do to you?
Think that embellishment is too busy?
Take it off.
It gets better.
You might be reading this thinking that none of the clothes would work for you because you don't wear plus sizes and I obviously do.
All of their clothing is available in size 0-36!
But wait. It gets even better!
Do I sound like an infomercial yet? Because it's all way too good to be true.
All the clothing can be personally customized to your exact measurements
They don't even cut the pieces until you place your order. That way they can tailor each piece to your exact specifications.
Told you it was too good to be true.
And you are waiting for the catch now.
How much does all this personalization/customization cost? It's really adding up now isn't it?
Not $7.50 per customization.
So, their clothes must be pretty expensive to begin with?
I found the prices extremely reasonable. They even run sales and have an overstock section.
Does all that sound too complicated to you? Don't want to deal with all the measuring?
No problem. Customization is entirely optional. You can just order your size. The only measurement you have
to give is your height.
They even have a
bridesmaid dress collection
All this sounds great in theory. But how well does it really work?
I decided to find out for myself.
After much agonizing over which dress to pick, (I loved them ALL!) I settled on the Cotton Poplin Colorblock Dress in Navy blue/Spring green
I followed the directions on the site and measured myself. Can I tell you how nervous that made me? What if I measured wrong and the dress didn't fit because of my mistake?
I left the cap sleeves and below knee length but changed the deep V-neck to a V-neck.
Then I waited. I figured I would wait a long time. All that customization should take a pretty long time shouldn't it?
7 days later I received a package. Took me a minute to figure out what it was because I was not expecting it so quickly.
