eShakti Review

Recently, a company called eShakti contacted me about doing a review of their product. I had never heard of them, so I went to their online store to check them out. Being the cheapskate frugalista that I am, I was a little taken aback by the some of the prices. They weren't expensive, but they weren't super cheap, either. Remember, I'm the one that won't buy any clothes for myself unless it's on the clearance rack.

But as I read through their policies and looked a little closer at how they operate, I noticed something. You can find the dress/shirt/outfit that you like and eShakti will custom size it for you at no extra charge. Wow. I never had anything custom made just for me. So, I thought I'd give it a try.

(Here's me, doing my best depatment-store-catalog-model pose)

I chose a peasant-style dress to review. I've always wanted a dress like this, but could never find one that fit right. My upper arms are on the bigger side compared to the rest of my body. I am forever having issues with them when it comes to my clothes. I'll find the perfect dress or top and it will fit just right except it's way too tight around my arms. So, I'll try on a bigger size and then I just look frumpy. Ugh.

I was surprised by how comfortable this dress was - I could have easily worn it all day (and I'm the type that can't wait to get back home, get my dress clothes off and change into something more comfy). The fabric was very comfortable and attractive. And the best part was that it fit! It fit me just right.....everywhere.....even my arms! Woohoo!

Don't worry, I'm still a clearance rack girl....but whenever I need a nice dress or outfit for a special occasion, eShakti will definitely be one of the first places I check. Having that custom fit made all the difference for me.

Oh, and eShakti has a clearance section, too! ;)


  1. WOW! What a neat item to get to review! I liked some of their dress styles, but their prices weren't exactly the best. The dress looks great on you. Thanks for the post!

  2. Hey cool! i hate buying dresses. So is it all online and how is it custom made? I will have to look!

  3. Yep, it's all online. I had to give my measurements when I ordered. They had an easy form to follow.
