eShakti Dress Review


Why hello there you visions of loveliness! Today I am showcasing a beautiful dress courtesy of eShakti If you haven't heard of them before, well, where have you been hiding? You need to know about this wonderful company! eShakti is a customizable clothing website where you can find vintage inspired dresses, skirts, tops, and jackets. These pieces are truly special-I would wear every single item on their website! The real treat is, though, that you can customize nearly all of the items you buy by neckline, skirt length, sleeve length, and general measurements. This means that you get an item which truly fits you perfectly instead of taking a gamble on a random internet purchase which may be too big or too small when you receive it in the mail. There is a fee to customize some areas, but if you have ever experienced a garment being way too short/long, etc. you know how worth it it is, especially if you value modesty as I do. 
The quality of eShakti garments is truly exceptional as well. The fabrics used are not the cheap, disposable kind you find at your local retail store. They are made of sturdy cotton and jersey knit fabrics.
Take this red dress that I received for example. My experience with jersey fabrics has not been a good one. They are usually very clingy, unflattering, and all around of cheap quality. I chose a jersey knit dress from eShakti because I was curious how their fabric would compare to the alternatives. I was so pleasantly surprised! The fabric is thick and soft and all around super comfortable, without being extremely casual which was my fear. I can even wear a petticoat under the generous skirt of this beauty!
If I had one critique with the dress (and I'm being nit picky), it would be that perhaps the knit and cotton fabrics fit differently even though they are the same size? I have a cotton poplin dress from eShakti as well and it fits perfectly according to my measurements. I ordered this same size in this red dress and it seems to actually be a bit loose around the waist and bust. Perhaps this is because it is a bit stretchy, and the cotton is not. Just something to be aware of if you decide to peruse the site.


In complete truth, I had the most difficult time deciding which item I should review from eShakti. Every single item is beautiful, and will last ages. Check them out! Just don't blame me if you want to buy every single piece, ok?
Oh, and did I mention nearly every dress is made with pockets? Yep, pretty perfect. 


Have you had any experience with eShakti? What did you think?

Have a great day all!

God Bless,
KJA

aaah, I love eShakti! Aren't their dresses just stunning? This twirly little red number is perfect for you, and I love how you added even more red with your lipstick. And curls were perfect for this look! *___*

I'm glad the jersey worked so well for you, too! It's amazing how higher quality knits of the same material can be so different. I know I've been spending more $$$ on higher quality items opposed to cheaper ones. I think it's been paying off. ;)

You look just stunning in that dress! I love it-- such a vibrant color!

I've never been disappointed with eShakti (and actually *just* bought another dress from them as a part of their spring sale!). They're really high-quality garments and the customization available is tremendous. I recently recommended them to a co-worker, too, so I'm definitely a fan!

Cheers,
Jenny

I love eshakti, their dresses are always gorgeous! I have noticed that the knit and poplin dresses differ in size a bit, the same thing happened to me! You look stunning in this dress, I love the red :)
