eShakti and they offered to send me one of their products to review. I had never heard of eShaktibefore but I looked around their website and saw that they promised to provide customizable clothing for a variety of sizes. I'm petite and often struggle to find clothing that fits me so I jumped at the chance to try something out.
They actually had a lot of cute stuff and many retro inspired things so it was hard to choose. I selected this dress to review as not only is it adorable it looked like it would be very easy to wear both dressed up or down. You can give eShakti your measurements to have your item custom made but since I pretty much matched the guidelines for the XS/0, I didn't. I did however give them my height (5'1") and asked for the dress to be changed from below knee to mini length. They also give you options on the length of sleeves and necklines but I left mine alone.
My dress was sent one week after I placed my order which is pretty fast for a custom made item if you ask me. I think it's worth sharing that my package was sent by DHL from India (I assume straight from their factory) but it only took 2 days. I didn't get charged customs and I assume like most Western countries, Canada & India have a trade agreement since so many products are made in India.
I think this dress is absolutely beautiful and classic. It is made from 100% cotton so it'll be perfect for the summer. The neckline is so pretty and I love the button detail down the back. Lengthwise it is absolutely perfect for a short girl like me. Although I love this dress, it is a tad too big for me. I had to wear a padded bra and a belt for it to fit right but it's not a huge deal.
