eShakti {Review}

I was recently given the opportunity to review eShakti a unique women’s apparel store online. When it comes to clothes I haven’t actually purchased anything for myself in a LONG time and I’m quite the stickler when it comes to price, which means if I’m going to buy anything for myself it has to be on sale. eShakti’s choices of clothing definitely aren’t in my normal price range but the thing you have to understand about eShakti is that they will make custom changes on any of their items including the style of the garment- sleeve, neckline and length to the customer preference. Which is a HUGE deal for me because I often have a hard time finding modest clothing. So this means that any of their dresses online that are sleeveless can have your choice of sleeve options added to them, and the greatest thing about being custom is that they are never out of stock! Many of their color choices are simple yet beautiful and their patterned fabric is great too! Another great part about being custom is that you can give them your exact measurements and they will custom fit the clothing just for you! This is a big deal for those of us who don’t fit into the standard mold, and their fee for customizing is only $7.50 per garment!

I got a little frustrated with their website because each time I have browsed the site I feel like each pages takes quite a while to load. (Definitely not an internet connection thing either because comparatively other pages were moving quite quickly.)

eShakti offers a full size selection from size 0-26W and custom size too. Every item (even custom made clothing) is shipped within 3 business days across the USA and Canada.

Untitled-1For review I chose one of their tunics in the color black, had short sleeves put on it and the length changed to mid-thigh length to ensure that it was long enough to be modest.

You can click HERE to find the product I reviewed- the Trapunto trim long top. This shirt retails for only $32.95 plus the additional $7.50 for customization. Which is actually a decent department store price of $40.45. Not a sale price by any means but you need to remember for a custom made item that it’s an AWESOME price. I can pretty much guarantee you won’t find anything cheaper for what you get. The garment fit perfectly and was exactly to my specifications. My only complaint about the shirt was the material. It was made out of 100% cotton no stretch material, which I was aware of when purchasing however with the custom fit it is extremely difficult to put on and off without it being stretchy. This item would definitely be better in a knit or material that had a little stretch to it.

Looking for a dress for a wedding or special event or just hate shopping because you can’t find anything that fits right. Just head to eShakti for your custom clothing needs!
