No matter how seasoned of a shopper I become, online and in store, there always will be something that I order which is of my size but fits awkwardly or doesn’t fit at all. Then we have those rare times when we absolutely fall in love with a dress but it’s one element away from being that perfect dress. Still you somehow want to make it work because you want it so much, I’m sure we’ve all been there! Can you already tell that I’ve been through this situation one too many times? Also, there are times when I like a dress but wish I could make a few changes and that it would look so much better with them. Small alterations like adding sleeves if it’s sleeveless, changing the length to slightly longer or shorter, making it a little more fitted at the waist or a little more loose, but because it comes in a standard size you don’t have a say at all.
So, when eShakti contacted me I jumped with joy when I learnt of their unique customizable option. I absolutely admire eShakti for giving us the freedom to choose and customize the size that fits perfectly well on our body. We’re all born unique and definitely come in our own unique shapes/sizes which may or may not fit into the standard size mould. eShakti has liberated women by letting them break away from the standard size label and help them slip into a dress that is truly made for them. I have a special place for brands like eShakti that are thoughtful and go the extra mile to provide such unique solutions to their customers. eShakti offers standard sizes from 0-36W, but again, everything is totally customizable! When I say everything, its not only the size or fit that you can customize but you can also change a few details like the neckline, the length of the sleeves, the length of the dress and much more which is so so cool! Also, based on the design and the fabric there are a few details mentioned about the body type the dress would be most suited for, which is extremely helpful for online shoppers.
If you’re a regular visitor here then you’d already know my love for colors. Strangely this time I was very drawn towards this grey cotton chambray maxi dress. The standard design of the dress was sleeveless and it was slightly longer too, which I then customized to my liking. I chose to add the sleeves and make it an ankle length dress so that my clumsy self is spared of being extra cautious while walking. When I received my dress, I absolutely loved the fit and also noticed the material used was of great quality too. Initially I was concerned about the fitting of the dress, I was wondering if my measurements were accurate enough, especially because the material was thick & without stretch. But I was super delighted to receive it, I’ve never really owned anything in this fit and silouhette, so it’s definitely a great addition and the pockets made it all the more amazing! So if you ask me, I had a hassle free experience while ordering and customizing my dress, it hardly took me a few minutes. The customer service was great and the delivery was super fast too, so my overall encounter with eShakti was a very pleasant one. I definitely urge you guys to check them out, they have beautiful trendy designs and with new ones being added every week you’ll surely love them.
