I was recently contacted by eShakti with an amazing opportunity to pick out a dress from their breathtaking collection to share with you all. I have heard of this fashion company before and since I’m a huge fashion lover and dress-obsessed-collector, I couldn’t resist the chance of customizing my own dress, which is what this brand is notoriously known for. They design the pieces, but customers get to customize the items to their size, height, and style preference; the customization fee is $10 per garment, which is completely understandable since their pieces are custom-made by hand and aren’t produced in advance, and will require more effort to create. They also carry sizes 0 to 36W, so there’s a pretty dress for every body shape!
After deliberately browsing through their selection, I finally found the dress that I wanted! It was this beautiful floral striped dress that I immediately fell in love with! The print just screamed my name and I love that it’s pink because that’s my favorite color! While I adore the elegant midi length of this dress, I decided to alter it to a full length instead. I have so many midi dresses already and thought that owning this particular piece in a maxi version would be amazing! I also changed the boat neckline to a scoop neckline and removed the side pockets because I hate pockets! I ended up getting the dress in a standard size ten since the measurements listed on the website’s size chart matched perfectly to my own body measurements. Prior to ordering, I had already measured my body and saved my measurements on my phone, so that I can go back and use them for reference when needed. I highly recommend that you get measured before ordering (or customizing) any piece of clothing online, so that you get an idea of what your body shape is like (there’s a very helpful “how to measure” guideline that’s link underneath the custom size section of every garment on the website!).
I placed my order on 8/7 and received a shipping confirmation on 8/17 (my dress took ten days to make; I didn’t mind the wait time because I understand that creating any sort of custom piece requires a lot of work and time). My dress arrived in record time on 8/21, which was incredibly fast since the package was coming all the way from India — I was very happy about this and couldn’t wait to rip the shipping box open to finally see the dress!
Here’s what the original dress looks like:
My dress was neatly and securely placed inside the shipping box, within a protective plastic bag. I couldn’t control my excitement when I finally saw how stunning the dress was! It looked just as beautiful in person as in the photos! The fabric is unbelievably stunning — it’s a dupioni material that’s thick with a subtle sheen to it. It looks so luxurious and doesn’t feel heavy on at all. The neckline is exactly how I wanted and the pleated skirt (the underlining is pleated also) gives the dress so much volume with a princess-esque vibe that I absolutely love! The maxi length that I opted for was adjusted perfectly to my height — the dress reaches down to my toes with plenty of inches left for my heels. Most importantly, this dress fits me just how I had hoped it would, true-to-size! It’s not loose or tight — just perfect! I didn’t find one single imperfection with this dress — no loose thread, no messy stitching, nothing! The quality is truly phenomenal and exceeded all of my expectations. It’s safe to say that this is one of the most beautiful dresses in my collection and I can’t wait to show it off at an event in the future!
Here’s my customized dress:
eShakti’s philosophy is all about empowering and making women feel good, and they truly accomplished what they had set out to do because today, I felt like a princess in their creation — beautiful, confident, and superlative. A piece of clothing can change both your appearance and mind — that’s why there’s a saying, “look good, feel good“!
This might sound like a glowing positive review, but I honestly had nothing negative to say. My experience with eShakti was nothing short of wonderful! My dress was perfect and was everything that I wanted, and I look forward to ordering more from this website in the future.
