I have been watching eShakti for awhile. It is everywhere in my Facebook Groups. I am thrilled, these buyers had posted their candid photos (I love that they take their own photos with their phones) and they are willing to let me share them. Because of that you will be able to see the range of clothing that eShakti sells, and they look fabulous. And then, fellow blogger XXELLE put up a coupon code up for eShakti that is good until March 10th, (those details are at the end of this post) so I knew it was time to review eShakti.
eShakti carries sizes 0 – 36, they offer customization, they do not keep any clothing in stock, they cut to order and their clothing is made in India. You have two choices, you can order clothing according to their sizing chart, and then have minor customization, or you can order custom sizing specifying all of your measurements. Customization is just $7.50 for both custom sizing and custom styling, and it is free with your first order.
I had never ordered anything from them because my personal experience with custom made clothing has not been very good, I tend to buy online and then have my clothes tailored. But I ordered a dress last week, completely custom and we will see how it goes when it arrives in several weeks.
Per Cat Oake recently:
I had been buying items from eShakti and adding several inches to the bust and waist as well as saying I was 5’11” tall when I’m actually only 5’5″. Well, things were coming larger and larger. I think they have been finally figuring out that they need to add extra ease to the garments for fat people.
Anyway, I recently changed my ordered measurements to be just an inch larger in bust and waist and VOILA! Perfect fits in the last two garments that arrived. No need fix ’em with the sewing machine or just live with the extra volume.
In addition, I loooove the fabric in the dress shown. It’s a eyelet using silver threads. (That is the dress at the top). You can only customize using the options on the customize tab with eShakti and fabric is everything, when you buy their more expensive pieces the fabric is better and they look better.

I pretty much ordered a size larger than I usually wear. I usually wear a size 26 (22/24 top and 26 bottom) but I got a 28. The way it’s cut at the top i could use a little more room but it’s not bad.
Here are some more photos of other fabulous women wearing eShakti:
Cardigan: Annex Woman
Tights: We Love Colors
Necklace: My grandmother’s
Cardi: Old Navy
Jeans: One Stop Plus
Good luck to all of you if you make any purchases. Consistently I saw the suggestion to buy a larger size than you usually wear and to add some inches to your height, the clothing tends to run short. Thanks to everyone on FatToo Anonymous that was willing to share their photos with you and me. They look fabulous don’t they!
