the one with an eShakti dress

Being on a no shopping surge during my capsule wardrobe is hard, you guys. Like I want to buy all the things . . . even things I know I would never normally buy. I just want to buy them . . . So when I was contacted to review my experiences with eShakti I knew it was heaven sent.

IMG_4345 I’ve seen a few bloggers review an eshakti dress before, and I was always intrigued. I’m a busty, curvy girl so having dresses in a reasonable (but high) price range that were made to fit me seemed like a dream come true. But I never pulled the trigger. Probably because even though I knew the prices were reasonable I hate spending more than $30 or so on a dress if I don’t know the quality.

I went with the bow tie cotton poplin dress – the reasons other than that I liked it were the poplin was going to be a good crisp fabric I could dress up but still be comfortable in, and because I wanted one with sleeves. This started with cap sleeves and I had them add 3/4 sleeves. The dress was also supposed to hit at the knee and I had it made a little longer.


The entire purchasing process was a breeze. I took my measurements, went on a diet, and ordered. I was close to one of their pre-set sizes so I went ahead and ordered that size. I was a little worried about how the chest/arms would fit – that’s the only complain I’ve seen from other bloggers, and I am busty . . . if you didn’t realize. which if you didn’t then that means you’ve never seen any of these posts!

Once the dress arrived, I was so excited I immediately went and tried it on. It fit amazing, looked amazing, and felt amazing! It was exactly what I was looking for – a longer but not maxi, black dress with sleeves!

Have you ever tried eShakti before?

*eShakti sent me this dress to review, but I received no other compensation. All opinions and love of the dress are 100% my own*

    So I got a dress sent to me too and although I LOVED it, the fit on my waist wasn’t great and a button fell off halfway through the day. I sure hope yours holds up better, it looks so great on you!

    Bex! You look gorgeous! I love that dress so much–very Audrey Hepburn! I think the longer sleeves and length are amazing and that little bow detail is so cute! I’ve heard a lot about eShakti and have been intrigued but never pulled the trigger!
