WIWW - Teal Dress (with review)

I am taking over this whole What I Wore Wednesday post to gush about this new-to-me company that I had a chance to review - Eshakti - - LOVE THEM!!  My new favorite place to buy a dress!  They sent me a dress to try out, but this is my own opinion, and I love them!  The dress I tried out is well made, with a side zipper and cute pipping detail.  The color is amazing and the inside is well-finished (not completely lined, but lined in the top).  The fit is amazing - more on that later.

Why do I love them??

  • prices are great (cheaper than other dresses that you don't get to customize)
  • cute styles
So, what do I mean - - yes, you can pick how you want your dress made.  NO KIDDING!  Like you pick a dress, then pick the sleeve option and the length option and the neckline option.  I started with this dress:

I am a sleeve person, so I knew sleeveless wouldn't work for me - but no problem because you can customize your dress.  I went with tie-ups, but I'm thinking I should have gone with capsleeves.  That's what I'll pick next time.  Then you also pick the length of your dress ( I went knee length) and the neckline (I kept the neckline as shown.  Some dresses only offer some of the custom options, but still, this company is amazing.

On top of customization of the style, you can customize the fit.  This was perfect for me.  I'm not busty - like AT ALL - so I had the dress made in one size and the bust area made in a smaller size - wowza, it fits so great!!  I think this is great if you have a short or long torso because it would be custom to you.  Or if you have the opposite issue as me and need a size up in the bust area.  Anyways, what a great thing!!!

I can't praise this company enough - so amazing that you can add sleeves to dresses and make them just how you'd like them!  Next I might buy this yellow dress - and this green one is calling to me too...

 And here's tons of spring dresses (keep in mind, you can change the hemline, neckline, sleeves, etc - so use your imagination!)

 So I really encourage you to browse around on eShakti - and then try out the customization features - you'll be hooked!!

I love your dress! It's such a great color and it looks really pretty on you. eShakti is one of my favorite places for dress and I'm reviewing them today too! I love my dress so much, I want to wear it all the time.


Thanks for the information. Just got done designing a dress.

I've heard tons about them and they seem AWESOME! I don't do sleeveless either =)

I'm a dress type of girl (obviously) and let me tell you I love those dresses! You are rocking the yours for sure and I love the color!

Hold the phone. This is the most amazing thing I have heard of all day. As someone with a relatively small waist/chest and relatively large boo-tay (I call my body type "The Mullet"), I always struggle with dresses. THANK YOU.

Ooh! LOVE that dress!!! I entered a giveaway with them somewhere recently and that's the exact dress I chose for my entry! :)

Very cute! This company is genius!

I bought the dress in the last photo on the far right - the pink and teal flowered one. I had it lengthened to mid-calf length and now I can sit in church without being self conscious. i love it!
