Online Shopping Experience | Review

There's something about the sleek-silhouette produced by wearing a perfectly fitting dress that makes me proud to be a woman. The way the skirt swings when I walk, the way the cut displays my legs, and the way the bodice caters to my curves makes me feel so soft and feminine.

I love wearing dresses, but while running around with my little ones, wearing them on the regular isn't always an option for me. They aren't always as comfortable and as versatile as jeans or pants. And it isn't often that I am able to find a dress that fits perfectly all over, without bunching in certain areas, and ill-fitting in other areas--not to mention options that are sexy without showing too much skin. But when I was presented the opportunity to review a dress from the online women's apparel company eShakti, I was given a whole new perspective. While shopping online, I was able to find a dress that fit me perfectly, is quite comfortable, and makes me feel all kinds of sexy and confident. So today I will be sharing my experience with perusing the eShakti site and choosing a custom dress with you guys.

I had already heard so many great things about eShakti, so when presented with the opportunity to review a product, I was excited! is the only online women's apparel company that caters to sizes 0-36 W and offers customized styling options. Not only that, you have several dresses, skirts and other apparel to choose from. This is great because it's rare to find quality stylish pieces nowadays for women of all shapes and sizes. Then the coolest part? You can have all of these pieces customized to your taste!

I opted for a fit-and-flare cotton knit dress right away. The dress was flared with a pleated boat neck, containing a princess seamed bodice and banded waist. Now this was my kind of dress! After choosing my dress of choice, the options to customize my dress for fit and style were given. I was able to choose standard sizes or add my own measurements for a custom fit. Once I included my size and height, I was given the option to customize my sleeve type and dress length. I kept the dress as shown, with pockets. Needless to say, I was fascinated by the entire customization process. So I had high expectations for the dress that would soon be shipped to my home.

When I received my order, I smiled from ear to ear as I was peeling my dress from the package. The material was cotton/spandex and jersey knit--so I knew it would be comfortable. I could tell I was holding a quality garment in my hands from the beginning.

I got into the dress and it fit me like a glove! I was worried that it would be unforgiving to my waistline, as I have a little more to love around the midsection nowadays. But this dress was very flattering. It fit nice and comfortably around my bust area, which tends to always be a problem for me when shopping for dresses. The material was, indeed, comfortable. I almost forgot I was wearing a dress throughout the day. And the best part? My husband could not stop staring at me in this dress. He complimented me over and over about how great I looked in it.
