Eshakti Dress Review and $930 Giveaway! (Ends 10/5) U.S./Canada

By Ruth on September 11, 2012 in fashion, giveaway, review

For a couple years now, I have heard of the site called “Eshakti,” but I never really thought much about it.  I remember casually looking through the site, but I decided the site was not for me, so I just stopped looking.  I was even signed up to their e-mails, and I just deleted them without looking at them.

Goodness, I did not know what I was missing!  Eshakti is a phenomenal women’s clothing site with some of the most amazing clothes you will ever find!  Each outfit you order can be uniquely customized to you and your size and height.  They service all women’s sizes: 0-36W.  While customization does incur an additional fee (except on the first order), it is definitely worth it.  Let me tell you a little about my experience.

I jumped at the chance to review a dress from Eshakti, and I even was approved to receive my first choice.  You can see it featured above.  I took my measurements to make sure that I picked the right size.  It was nice to see that I was almost a perfect size 10, and so that is what I ordered.  I figured the dress would be a little on the short side, but as long as it was knee-length, I would be happy.  I also wondered if I wanted a sleeveless dress, but I decided I could easily put a jacket over it if I were cold.

I was contacted to give my height measurements!  I was surprised because since this was my first time ordering from this site, I didn’t know exactly what to expect.  I gave my height measurements, and then I got the notice my dress was being shipped.  And honestly, just a couple days later, it arrived!  All the way from India!

When I opened the package, I was completely blown away!  I loved the picture, but when I saw how beautiful the fabric was and how well-made this dress was, I was very happy.  I tried it on right away, and it was a perfect fit!  Now when I say it was a perfect fit, I mean completely a perfect fit.  The length was exactly what I wanted, and the zipper did not bunch or feel too tight.  What an unbelievable company!

Of course, you may want to see how it looked on me, and I will do so.  I wore the dress to church, and I had my daughter take my picture.  I have two different pictures, and I will explain.

Here is the dress as it came in the package.  Yes, that is our dog in the background.  I had no idea till now she was there!

When the weather turns cooler, you can put a little jacket or sweater, and it still looks nice!  The sweater is mine, but it matches perfectly.

There are little pockets hidden in the flap of the dress.  I think that is ingenious.  How often do dresses ever have pockets?  I got at least one compliment on this dress (outside my family).  I plan to wear it again.  This dress fits so well that my bra straps don’t even show!  That might seem small, but normally when I wear sleeveless dresses, the bra strap always shows!

This dress was provided for me to review by eShakti in collaboration with the Fashionista Blogger group hosted by Still Blonde After All These Years and ModlyChic.
