eShakti Review: Black Maxi Dress

I recently had the opportunity to review an item from eShakti an online retailer that allows you to order customized clothing made just for you. Now eShakti offers a huge variety of dresses, tops, jeans, pants, skirts, and jackets. All of which you can order custom made using your own body measurements. As a petite woman,  I really appreciate that eShakti allows you to order clothing made especially for your own customized fit. I try to avoid buying clothing that is too long for my height which limits my options at most stores, because most items are not made for 5’2″ women. But when ordering from eShakti I don’t have to worry about that since everything can be customized to fit me perfectly.

How Does eShakti Work?

I love how easy it is to order customized clothing from eShakti. The eShakti website if very easy to navigate. For example, if you are looking for a dress and you click on the dress tab. You have the option of viewing all dresses or narrowing your search by the type of dress (maxi, sheath, fit & flare, little black dress, solids, prints, etc.).

Once you choose an item, then comes the fun part. Next, you get to customize your item.  You can choose to either order a standard size that is customized for your height. Or you can choose to have your item completely customized and sewed based off your body measurements. I went with the second option and used my body measurements and had a dress made using my own body measurements. If you choose to get the dress made using your body measurements there is a $9.95 fee, but it’s well worth it.

Another great option that you get when shopping at eShakti is that you can also customize items by choosing the sleeve length, neckline, dress/skirt length for items.


Fast Shipping

Another customizing your item to fit your needs you need not worry about having to wait a long time before you can wear your customized item. You can expect to receive your item within 10 to 14 days from the date that you place your order. I placed my order on September 19th and received my order on September 28th. That is a really short time for to get an item custom made and shipped to you.

My Dress

I have to say that it was a lot of fun getting the opportunity to choose an item to review for eShakti. I chose a black maxi dress that is perfect for the Fall. My dress fits me perfectly, eShakti did a great job of using my measurements to create a custom dress for me. I love the quality of the dress, it’s very well made.




This is my second dress from eShakti and both of my dresses that I’ve ordered from them I have really loved. I would definitely order more items from eShakti.

    Cute Dress! I’m 5’2″ as well so I totally can relate…I usually have longer dresses altered, but this is a great option!

    THAT IS SUCH GOOD NEWS FOR A SHORTY LIKE ME!!! I love maxi dresses but they never work for me. I trip over them, I step all over them, I try to tie them up and they fall down, so eShakti sounds perfect for us vertically inclined ladies. 🙂
    Thanks for sharing, and you look lovely, Mama!!!

    Very very cool Sonya! I love this dress on you; I also have a hard time finding clothing to fit me. I’m 5’2 and very shapely, so pants are impossible, dresses are usually too big, or too small, maxi dresses are always too long. eShakti sounds like the perfect solution to my clothing issues

    This is adorable. You look great, Sonya. I love your earrings too :). My daughter needs to try this site out. She’s 4’11” and really struggles to find things that are the right length. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I had an eshaki dress before. I liked the idea that you can custom make but they did a bad job on my dress. Wish it would have worked for me.

    I just love eShakti and their dresses! I have a fall dress from them now that I can’t wait to bust out. Lol. I’m a shorty too, so I’m loving that the dresses can be customized with ease. They make finding the perfect dress so easy for their customers. This dress is so cute on you, Sonya! I love that it has POCKETS! And of course you know I’m loving that lippie too. Hope all is well with you and the fam!

      Me too!!! I love all the dress options that eShakti has too. It’s always fun to pick something out from them.

    This dress has my name written all over it! That is my kind of dress! I love me some maxis! I have heard mixed reviews with eShakti, I’m glad they worked out for you well. #ProductReviewParty

      I wonder if it is measuring errors with the bad eShakti reviews. Because with my first dress I tried to measure myself and then my mom measured me and I measured myself all wrong. But it could be inconsistent quality based off the person sewing the items. I’m just glad both of my dresses from them worked out really good.
