My Experience with Eshakti + Dress Review

Hi everyone! Today, I'm going to shake things up, and discuss fashion. Now, as a plus sized girl it can be difficult to find quality pieces that are fashionable. Many of the stores either don't carry clothing in my size or make plus size pieces that look like they were made for my grandmother. I am young and want to look fashionable! I was approached by eShakti to review one of their custom made pieces. Of course I jumped at the chance. 

I was able to select which item I would like to try, and I chose this geo print dress*. I loved the pattern, and thought it would be the perfect dress to rock this spring. 

For those of you who don't know, eShakti allows their customers to customize each piece. Yes, you heard me right. You can have it custom made for either size or style. The style options you can add are different length sleeves and different lengths. I chose to customize my dress by adding 3/4 sleeves and making it hit at the knee. I had planned to wear it around the kids I work with, and I wanted to make it a bit more appropriate. Sizing wise, I chose to order a size up from what I normally wear just in case the fabric was a bit clingy.

I did an inspection of the dress when it arrived, and I am quite impressed with the quality. It came lined which I thought was a nice touch. The dress also comes with a concealed elastic waist that adds to the overall comfort. Also, did I mention that the dress has pockets?! There is just something about a dress with pockets that gets me excited.

Now, you may be wondering why I am not wearing the dress in the photo. Unfortunately, the dress did not fit me in the chest area. It was not a pretty sight. Of course, this was my fault. I should have realized that I would need more room in the chest. In the future I will have to make sure to have that aspect customized. 

The good news is that the dress fits my sister, and she loves it. I was so worried that the dress would go unworn, but my sister adores the pattern, and it looks extremely flattering on her. Lucky girl!

Overall, I am very happy with my eShakti experience. I may not be able to wear the dress, but my sister can. The quality was very nice, and their website had a nice variety of items to choose from. You should note that eShakti only ships to the US and Canada. I should also mention how helpful they were through this entire process. It was much appreciated.
