Eshakti is Perfect For All Occassion ~ #Review

I had never shopped for clothes online until I saw what eshakti had to offer.  They make clothing for women that changes all the time to keep up with today's fashion.  They have affordable dresses, skirts, and tops for all occasions like weddings, office wear and everyday wear.  I spent hours trying to pick which dress I liked.  First there were so many selections and I was not sure which one would actually fit me.  I find the same size from one company is different from another.  I just don't get it.  I bought a same "size" skirt from Ann Taylor and H&M and H&M does not fit me.  Go figure - and I couldn't return the skirt.

The dress I've ordered from the site over a month ago is no longer there.  Wait...found it!  It being discontinued.  So if you hesitate too long it wont be there anymore.  What is interesting about this site is that your dress could be customized to your proportions (chest, hip, and waist) with a small fee of $7.50 that could make your dress fit you perfectly.    With an additional $7.50 you can change the length of the dress and/or the sleeve type you prefer.  It took my dress approximately 3 weeks to arrive because it is coming from India.  Can you believe it?  An affordable, customization dress without the big price tag.

The dress I picked was prefect for Spring.  It was green, which is the colour for this season with pretty embroideries on it.  The dress also has a elastic smocked back waist that stretches with my proportions easily which was perfect on me.  Would I shop at this site again?  Most definitely.

  1. Hello, HC.
    Love this post and really happy to hear that you can customize the item you buy to fit your style and your body.
    I wish many more online stores offered this service. What a great idea. As you had mentioned it is often hard to exchange or return clothing bought online. Thank you for this post, Happy Chinadoll.

  2. Thanks for sharing this info. I will actually be looking into this website because customizing size is something greatly useful for me.

  3. I have the same issue with online shopping as you, and I tend to stick to store where I have shopped in-store before, and generally have a good idea how their sizes fit. I love the idea of &7.50 customizations, and that might be more than enough for me to give eshakti a try! WHen you bought your dress, did you pay for it to be customized?

    1. Nope, the dress was perfect on its own. :)

  4. I love the idea of being able to customize my choice for such a relatively low price! Its very cool and I look forward to purchasing a dress from them soon!

    RAFFLECOPTER NAME is Anne Taylor

  5. Loved the dress, what a super deal to get one customized for such a low price, doubt you could even get trousers turned up for that here.

  6. i'm always scared to order online and getting clothes that don't fit :(

  7. Haven't ordered clothes on line before but this dress is quite beautiful

  8. I have only ordered clothes once on line, a pullover that I found to have one sleeve shorter than the other!
