eShakti Dress review.

Recently we were contacted by a company called eShakti to do a review on a sample dress from their site. eShakti is a company that offers customized dresses (not only dresses) to suit your standards offering a wider range of sizes, from 0-36W, and different alterations including knee-length and sleeve length. Kenecha and myself picked out this lovely red dress together to review. Of course when it arrived, just over a week later, Kenecha was out of town so I was left to review it myself. 
The dress was much longer than what I usually wear but it works since we’re still experiencing winter here where I live. When customizing your dress, they ask you for your height and the dress length you prefer. I think that’s really great because dress lengths may vary from person to person depending on your height. It may end up longer on a short person than a taller person so it’s nice that they take your height to customize your dress. You can choose your sleeve length as well. Have you ever seen a dress you liked but the sleeves weren’t right for you? Maybe you liked your shoulders covered but the dress was sleeveless. I love that you change choose a dress in your style but also get to change the sleeve length. I mean, how neat is that?
To be honest, I didn’t take any measurements while ordering my dress. I thought for sure i’d be a size small. But, when I tried on the dress it was too big for me. It’s possible that the sizes may run a little bigger. Or, maybe I should have properly taken my measurements. Besides the sizes to choose from, you can also give them your exact measurements to have a dress perfectly fitted to your body. 
Once I got the dress to fit me, I actually really loved it. The style is so lovely and the little bit detail in this dress is perfect.  I also discovered that it has pockets!! I almost didn't even notice, it was hidden so well. The buttons down the front are very cute and the “v" shape around the waist is just perfect. It gives such a cute vintage look and reminds me of medieval times which I am obsessed with. It has a very casual look but I feel like it can also be dressed up. I kept it casual, of course. The colour is very nice and the material is fine. It looks really nice with a cardigan or coat. I wore it with my white coat and I really liked how the whole outfit looked. 
(Check out those pockets!)

Overall I’m pleased with my experience with eShakti minus the size issue which is really my own fault. The dress only took just over a week, and the quality was nice. If you like vintage looking dresses than I would recommend checking out their site. We were also given a 10% discount code for you to use on your order.

  75. This sounds so cool! I normally don't have a hard time finding well-fitting dresses, but with jeans it's a completely different story - they are always too long, too wide around the waist or too tight around the hips, so it takes ages for me to find a well-fitting pair of pants or jeans! Very good review and great pictures!
