I remember my days in India when all my clothes were custom made for my fit and style. I could have a dress with the exact length or neckline I wanted. But over the period of time, with so many brands and easily available off-the-rack clothes, the labels x-small, small, medium etc became the norm of our sizes. Yes, we all fit in one of these sizes but most of the time we wish if we could customize the piece to be little more specific to our style and measurements.
Well, there is one clothing brand that does believe in liberation from the size tag – eShakti, a women’s fashion clothing brand. Their philosophy says it all “It is not enough that clothes look good on mannequins. They need to look good on you. We make clothes just for you, not to just fit well, but also to have the neckline, sleeve and length work for you. We also make every garment to your exact height. At eShakti, you can, of course, also buy clothes as shown in the standard sizes from 0-36W – or you can have them customized to your specific size with your selection of neckline, sleeve and length. It is your choice and it is easy, fast and affordable.“
I recently got the opportunity to work with eShakti where I was offered to try and review a product of my choice from their huge collection. With so many options to select from, it took me a long time to decide what I wanted. I finally decided to go with a jumpsuit. I’ve never been able to wear a jumpsuit before as most of the jumpsuit I’ve tried in store were either too lose or too tall for me. So getting a jumpsuit of my custom fit sounded like a perfect idea. I decided to go with this split neck leaf print jumpsuit. I loved the style and neckline so didn’t make any modification there but I did customize it for my size. I was surprised to see that they do give an option to add/remove pockets in your dress. Seriously, who doesn’t like pocket in their dress?
My jumpsuit was shipped a week after I placed the order and it took another 10 days for delivery. The fabric quality is great and it fits me perfectly. I love the neckline so much. The only thing which disappoints me is the pockets. What an irony, right? Well, the pockets are a little big and make my hip look little wider than they actually are. But I still love my jumpsuit and those pocket does make it a little more special for me 🙂
I do want to mention that I had to struggle a little to finalize what I wanted as few of the fabrics were running low on stock. It might just be the time while I was making the selection but it would have been ideal if those items were not available for selection on the website at first place. Overall,I’m very impressed with the concept of online custom clothing and love how easy they have made it for all of us. The great quality of clothes is a cherry on top. I would definitely recommend you to check them out and give them a try.
