eShakti contacted me to review another one of their dresses on my blog. I have talked about eShakti previously on this post. Anytime I have worn that dress and the other eShakti dress I own, I have received compliments. This time I chose to review a custom made dress.
eShakti offers two ways to order clothes: the traditional size route and custom orders. On the traditional side, you can choose to customize the sleeve length or hem length. With a complete custom order, you need to provide measurements – offering size made just for you. I have a short torso with a small waist and wider hips, so I find that sometimes dresses do not fit well. I went through the catalogue of dresses and picked one I thought would be suitable for school.
It is preferred that you have someone help you with the measurements to have an accurate fit. The dress was delivered in less than a week. After washing my dress and hanging it to dry, I realized it is one of those “must iron” kind of dresses, something that annoys me as I’m not a fan of ironing. My other two dresses are a polyester blend that requires zero ironing.
Unlike my other two dresses, this one fit better in the waist/bust. The dress is at the perfect length for me and has sleeves that make it suitable for work, both with a cardigan and without. I do prefer a different kind of fabric just because of the ironing. Having a custom fit allows you to purchase a dress that fits just right and eliminates the need to visit a seamstress later. The fee for customizing is only $9.95, which is very reasonable. With most dresses you can choose sleeve styles, so if you are like me and work in locations were sleeves are mandatory, eShakti can be a useful website for purchasing work clothes. Or you might have a neckline that works better for you. There are so many choices!
There are many different styles of dresses (and jeans, pants, sweaters) to choose from. If you have a particular style in mind, you can probably find it. I even found one dress with bicycles on it! I love anything with purple/green, so picking this dress was easy.
Thanks to eShakti for another great work outfit!
