I love summery dresses, and when I was contacted by someone from eShakti.com to try out their online boutique I went straight to the dress page and picked out my favorite. It couldn’t be better timing! I always hesitate when ordering things online because you have no idea how it will look on, but I was looking forward to giving this site a try.
I found that the eShakti website had some very great and unique items. Being that I wasn’t very familiar with their clothes I wanted to choose something that looked like it would fit well even though I had never tried it on. I find dresses to be the easiest in that regard, so after searching the entire site I decided to choose this bow tie maxi dress! (I personally think I look rather good in yellow) One really great thing about this site is that you are able to custom order your clothes…from length to size to all different measurements.
A woman can shop for exactly what she wants – no compromise, no premium to pay. She can ask for the fabric, color, body, styling and sizing that she likes. Earlier the information flowed one way: from the manufacturer to the customer. Now, the customer can talk to the manufacturer and easily specify online what she wants and get the clothing made just for her.
You can’t do that many places! I thought there size chart was pretty self explanatory, so I was pretty confident in ordering a regular size they offered.
I was extremely excited when the dress came in. The color was fantastic and I couldn’t wait to put in on. I must admit I was a little nervous because you never know. Anyway…I put it on and loved it! The length was perfect and I thought it looked nice! My only complaint would be the bust size. I ordered the size that fit my bra size and the fit was rather snug, so beware of that. You might want to order a custom measurement there.
All in all I was very happy with the eShakti site. I personally think more sites should focus on customization, because let’s face it…women can’t always fit into one size box. Especially when it comes to ordering online, because it’s just not as easy to get another size if something doesn’t fit. So ordering to fit your body from the start is a wonderful idea. So check it out! There is definitely something for everyone!
eShakti provided me with an outfit of my choice in order to write this review, but all thoughts and opinions are my own….as usual!
I’ve shopped from them before on a couple different occasions a few years back. While their stuff is super cute, I’m not a fan of the fabric – it was just too thin each time for my tastes. Dont remember what type it was. Glad you liked them though. They really have expanded since I first shopped with them.
Funny…I didn’t find the fabric thin at all. I actually thought it was very similar to the dresses made by Victoria Secret…pretty sturdy.
Very pretty! Good to know about the bust sizing; it’s probably a a good idea, depending on the design of the item and the fabric, to go up a band size to allow for some ease in very fitted items.
That’s awesome! The dress is cute, too.
Thanks for the website!! Very cute dresses.
SWEET!!! Love the neckline! I’m new to you! Found your blog on SITS! Love it!
Great choice! I live in dresses during the summer–in fact, I’m taking ONLY dresses on our month-long trip this summer–and the one you chose looks perfect!
When I go on vacation I have learned to do that too. They are easy to pack, easy to wear and best of all comfortable! Great idea!
I ordered 2 dresses (I couldn’t decide-both so cute) and called to be sure that they would arrive in time for my son’s wedding. I was assured that they would. They arrived the day after the wedding, they were way too big and one was damaged (likely by customs opening box). I was assured that I could return them for a FULL refund. I spent 5 days trying to contact eShakti with no success-straight to voice mail and no response to email. I final drove to their US address (I live near-by) – it’s actually a UPS store and dropped off the package.
Yesterday I reached someone at their toll-free number. They say they are crediting back, apologized up and down and will give ma gift certificate for my troubles- but the email mail confirmation shows that they only credited the charge for the dresses- not the postage and the gift certificate for my troubles is actually just the re-issue of the $15.00 gift certificate that I already used as a new customer! Really? This is how you do business?
It’s a shame because the the construction, styling and fabric was lovely and I would be a long time customer if the service was good. I just can’t stand poor customer service.
My items finally arrived today after ordering them on march 30th they came april 24th. The guarantee on their website about shipping time is bullshit.
So my order finally comes im in canada and I had to pay the UPS guy 160$ in brokerage and custom fees.
When my items came I received 2 of the same dresses and one of my dresses was missing.
I ended up returning 5 dresses and keeping 3 and it costs me 21$ to mail the dresses back to WA.
I will never order from this company again.
The dresses fit well because I custom ordered it but they weren’t amazing fabrics or dresses.
I am very disapointed in this company.
