Embracing a Healthy Family: eShakti Customized Women's Clothing Review

eShakti Customized Women's Clothing Review

"We Design, You Customize" is the motto of eShakti the Dress Shop.  I love how more and more businesses are allowing the consumer to personalize their products and eShakti is one of them.  Another unique feature of eShakti is the fact that they offer a complete range of sizes from size 0 to size 26W on EVERY style as well as custom sizes.

At eShakti, the choices include every type of fashion need or desire along with jewelry and accessories.  Whether you are looking for resort wear, jackets, dresses, lounge wear or more, they have it. For this review, I'm choosing the infamous, little black dress to show how easy it is to customize.

There are multiple options to select from when choosing which dress to customize.  I chose the Crystal Trim Jersey and Crepe Party Maxi.



Details:

Sheer mesh with crystal highlights trims a solid matte jersey bodice topping a fan-pleated skirt of an Empire-seamed dress cut with a double square neckline and wide straps.
  • Slips on over head.
  • Side zip.
  • Floor length.
  • Lined at the skirt.
  • Polyester/cotton spandex; hand wash.
eShakti gives you options categorized by "non-mandatory details" and "mandatory details."  "Non-mandatory details", for this dress, is your bra cup size.  For me, this is a big deal as I can't tell you how many times I had to choose a larger dress to fit the top half.  This is a very welcome feature!

The "mandatory detail" for this dress is your height.  Again, another great feature as when you are short, it's hard to find a dress that fits the top and fits the length where you don't have to buy really high shoes or get it altered.  Your dress should arrive ready to wear!

The "custom detail" is next.  For his particular dress, I can choose the type of neckline I want.  I can go with "as shown" (look at the picture above), or wide straps or halter.  Once you make your selection, a pop up window will show an illustration at what each type of strap looks like.  If you choose to customize this, a small fee ($10) does apply.  I'm choosing the halter neckline.

The next choice is the "tunic length."  I can choose from "above the knee," "knee length," or "below the knee."  A pop up window will show the difference in lengths.

That was it!  All I had to do was add it to my cart!  eShakti will accept returns but if you customize, they will refund the full amount minus the costs for customization.  That is another great feature as many places will not accept returns on customized products.  For the price of $69.95, I was able to create a dress to my exact measurements which will be ready to wear.


If you are looking for a bargain, check out the "overstocked" area.

eShakti also ships in THREE days!  That's unbelievable given that each garment is customized.

The Review:

I received my complimentary sample dress yesterday and I love it!  It's absolutely beautiful, made of high quality material and fits perfectly!  It is so hard finding a dress to fit a short person with a large chest without having to compromise and have one portion either too big or too small but with this dress, it fits me like it was tailored made which if you think about it, it was!

I'm still on the road of losing weight so I made my daughter pose for the picture. By the way, I loved eShakti so much, I ordered one for her.  I'll add more pictures of the style she chose. 



The ordering process was so easy, as I noted above, and the customer service is equally impressive.  I forgot the special offer listed below until 1/31st so after I placed the order, I e-mailed eShakti and they graciouslly took care of it for me.  Another thing to note as some might feel because I was provided a complimentary sample for this post that I might have been treated special.  The customer service representative had no idea that I was receiving a sample for a post when I contacted them about my paid order.  This to me, is testimony as the level of customer service they provide.

Overall, I would recommend eShakti to any woman who likes to take a part in the design of her own clothing.  This is truly a unique experience in that you can get clothing made that is tailored to your body.  The prices are reasonable when you consider the costs of custom made clothing and the high quality in fabrics and workmanship put into the final product.  The dress I received was flawless, beautiful and perfect.


Good news:

eShakti is presently running a special promotion for all their new and first time customers. 'Get $20 OFF $30'

All you have to do is add items worth $30 to your cart and use coupon code 7W3FKE at checkout, to have this fabulous discount applied to their order. This code is valid till 01/31/10 so hurry!

Just mentioned this to my blog (www.hourglassy.com) readers but have never tried it. Thanks for the review. I'm 5'3" and large-busted, so understand how hard it is to find a dress that fits the bottom AND top. Have you had any more experiences with eShakti?

I've tried two dresses to date from eShakti and loved both of them. The one in the picture fit perfect and having large breasts makes it hard finding a dress but since you can customize that aspect, it's worth the $7.50 charge. They also have a lot of overstock sales where you can grab a bargain but you don't get to customize. The customer service is very good too. I really feel they strive to cater to women and their e-mail updates provide you with ideas for outfits which I like too.
