So, like I said, I knew I wanted to get a nice black dress in a winter weight fashion. After wading through pages of choices, I finally narrowed it down to the "Bow Tied Ponte Knit Sheath" (retail $69.95). As I've already mentioned, eShakti offers customized clothing- all the way up to size 36- and you can tell I made some changes to the original dress.
I entered in my measurements (including height!) and customized the length of the dress- right at the knee- and the sleeve length- three quarter sleeves. And it has pockets! Does it really get any better? The dress arrived within a week, and I am very impressed with the quality of the fabric- wrinkle-free and the perfect thickness, as well as the fit of the dress.
It can be very frustrating for plus-size (and petite women for that matter) to buy clothes "off the rack". Often times clothes I really love aren't available in my size. There is nothing worse that falling in love with a dress, Modcloth, I'm looking at you!, only to discover the largest size it comes in is a measly, microscopic 10! That's not a problem with eShakti since you can completely customize it to your own measurements and personal preferences.
I found the customer service to be quick and friendly, the service fast, and the product perfect. I am already in the process of ordering my next dress from the company. There are tons of reviews and blog posts about eShakti. While I can only offer my own experience, I promise you, I am completely satisfied, and I absolutely will buy from the company again.
