Customize Your Wardrobe With eShakti

I have always loved to shop for clothes. It seems that as I have become heavier it has become harder to find clothes in plus sizes. Every model out there looks like a Barbie doll and that is very intimidating to me. I am now starting to lose weight and am loving the fact that clothes are fitting me better. Now, I am beginning to shop around for new clothes to fit my thinner figure (and no, I am not skinny at all by the world's definition) and the place that I start to do that is the Internet. My love for clothes is evident by the boxes in my basement and my full closet. I typically find most of my clothing at thrift stores because so many people toss out brand new clothes and I can't see paying full price for something that I can easily find at a second-hand store. Whenever I go to buy something online or at a store though, it is a real treat for me!
Recently, I became acquainted with an online boutique that I have fallen in love with. The reason I love it so much is because you can look at any garment that they have for sale and modify it to fit you! That means you can totally customize ANYTHING to fit you perfectly!! eShakti is a company that makes customizeable, beautiful clothing to fit your style and body. Before I continue, here is a bit more about this company...


 eShakti began as a small website offering basic cottons and modestly embellished pieces. As we grew, we were tasked with providing design and fit solutions to meet our customers' needs. Today, we are an international fashion design company making custom clothing. Offering both style and fit customization for women Size 0 through 36 is the heart of our business. 


To simply put it, custom clothing does not have to be expensive. By keeping up with technology as it is advancing, we are able to provide customization at a modest cost. 

Our design teams are based in New York, California and India which gives us a diverse fashion perspective. Our clothing is made in India in our own factories and in local factories that produce some of the leading brands at retail. We do not stock any sizes. Since each style - whether standard sized, custom styled or custom sized - is cut to order, we do not have to warehouse our merchandise. 

Therefore, you will notice that every style requires your height measurement, whether you are customizing or not. This ensures you a 'truer' fit. We ship directly to you. That helps us to keep our fashion affordable.


The thing that really caught my eye was the fact that the cater to plus-sized women...like me! Finding clothes that fit is difficult enough, but finding clothes that also look beautiful is also a problem. This is why I was excited about reviewing eShakti.
So, for this review I received a custom-made Vintage Collared Top and it is stunning. I chose this particular shirt because it has a high neckline and has length to it. My standards are pretty high when it comes to my necklines and I am very picky. This top looked very promising!

My Vintage Collared Top arrived the other day and when I pulled the shirt out, I was sooo impressed! This is a very beautiful garment. There are tiny white butterflies all over this shirt and I just love the black and white contrasting colors. As you can see in the first picture I posted of this top (the stock photo), the sleeves are slightly capped. Well, I prefer more of a sleeve so when I customized this shirt for me, I had my choice of 5 different sleeve options: As Shown, Cap Sleeve, Short Puffed, Short Length, Sleeveless. I chose to get a short length sleeve.
One of the features I love about this top is the over-sized collar. It adds such a touch of elegance to the whole shirt. I am a fan of large collars so this was a nice touch for me. The collar is anchored by two large fabric-covered buttons that are off to the side of the collar.
I could also choose a length for the top and so I chose the hip-length because I don't like shirts riding up when I bend over. The waist of this top is beautifully gathered with elastic so it fits really nicely to my figure. Typically, I don't prefer fitted waists, but this is super comfortable and adds form to an otherwise straight top.
Friday was my birthday and hubby took me out to dinner. We haven't been on a date in months so this was a very special occasion. Because it was very cold outside, I didn't wear my new top but did put it on for a picture. Isn't it gorgeous? I was worried about the fit but was really pleased to see that it did fit me perfectly! It didn't feel snug at all and was super comfortable. 
I really REALLY felt dressed up when I wore this top...it is so feminine and elegant. I love the sleeve and top length and really would not have wanted either of them to be shorter. I ended up getting a size 22, which was perfect. The fact that I could customize this Vintage Collared Top (for FREE) was such a blessing. I ended up picking a top that I normally would not have picked due to the sleeves that were pictured in the stock photo on the website.

  1. Your top is adorable! I love when blouses have a bit of a flare for someone with an indented waist and hips that are a little wider...I have found that Ann Taylor Loft blouses also have that cut, which works well for me. Thanks for the info on the company, have never heard of eShakti before!
    PS You should have bought the next smaller size also because you are doing so well in eating wisely and will be moving down in sizes of clothing I'm sure in the near future :)
