I, like many people in not-so-urban areas, do the majority of my clothing shopping online. I live in an area where we have to drive an hour just to get to Old Navy for goodness sake, so it can be a real struggle to find that certain item when you are looking for it without driving to the city.
Online shopping is wonderful, but it too has it’s drawbacks, mainly ordering clothes in a size you “think” will fit and then you have to just cross your fingers and hope that when it arrives it fit your properly. That is an issue I’ve had so many times. I’ve ordered entire boxes of clothing only to return everything when they didn’t fit my body shape. And I don’t think that my body is that difficult to dress, it’s just hard to know what size to get and how a certain style will look on you until you’ve tried it.
That was until I discovered eShakti, an online retailer that allows you to customize their pieces according to your style and/or measurements. Have you ever found a dress and wished it were a few inches longer? Or that it had a different neckline? Maybe you wished it did (or didn’t) have pockets? These are some of the customizations you can make through eShakti.
same dress, three different looks
I spent hours going through their website trying to choose a piece, there were so many I loved I found it incredibly hard to decide. I nearly ordered this chevron dress (I’m slightly chevron obsessed)
but in the end decided to go with a classic styled black dress. Every girl needs a nice black dress and I didn’t have one, but loved the simple look of the Kayla dress.
I requested that the pockets be removed, submitted my measurements and requested it be made to (my) knee length and waited. I was a little concerned that I’d measured improperly, or that it still wouldn’t fit, but about two weeks later my new dress was at my door and it fit perfectly!
I couldn’t be more happier with my experience shopping with eShakti, and the next time I’m looking for a piece for a special occasion or a button-up shirt that will actually FIT this is going to be my first stop.

Not that this is something I need to concern myself with, but anyone who is planning a wedding, they have a full selection of bridesmaid dresses as really reasonable prices. I know how difficult it can be (and how expensive!) to find one dress that will fit all your bridesmaids without having to go to a seamstress. With eShakti you can have the dresses custom made for your bridesmaids without breaking the bank, and actually get them a dress they will want to wear again!
