My friend Emerald, who works at Burning Man Headquarters, asked me about my blog a few months ago, and then perused it. She then told me she had ordered from eShakti, here is her story:

With a Burning Man identity of “Emerald” and finding myself blessed with a job at the headquarters in San Francisco I decided to splurge on a dress.   It turned out not to be quite a splurge as this dress was on sale and I had a first-time-buyer discount.  I paid a total of $23.90.

Here are the measurements I provided to eShakti:

  • Lengthofarm:Short
  • Upperarm:15
  • Hip:55
  • Waist:45
  • Underbust:41
  • Bust:45
  • Chest:44
  • Shoulder:17
  • I’m 5 feet tall and weigh ~210.
I get a lot of compliments on this outfit.  It’s comfortable and fun to wear.   The only measurement I have a problem with is shoulder-to-shoulder and I need to go back and re-measure myself.  The dress crosses from front to back too close to my shoulder and you can’t pull it in because of the design.   I wear a blouse under it (most of the time anyway) as it is cut lower than I would wear it during the day.
Overall I am thrilled to get a dress cut to size that I really enjoy.

Thanks Emerald for taking the time to share with us how eShakti worked for you and you look fabulous in your dress.

OMG eShakti Makes a Tulle Skirt in MY Size!

eshakti crinolineAs you probably know if you have visited my blog before, I go to Burning Man and I am the Social Media Coordinator for Burning Man Project, so you might expect that I would love a tutu. I have a couple and wear them as costumes.  But I have been yearning for a tulle skirt for several years.

Not a black one, not a white one, but some lovely color that would be fun and feminine, and yes, a little funky.

Then I was introduced to eShakti, and lo and behold they had crinolines, and on occasion, the Dahlia Crinoline, in burgundy. I could choose the length and the very best part, IT COMES IN MY SIZE.  They custom make their clothing to a size 6X and I am wearing a 4X. I love it and I hope you will too.
