My Love Affair with eShakti

My Love Affair with eShakti

*This is an unpaid review*

If you have followed my blog or my Instagram account for any amount of time, you’ll know that I hold a deep love and appreciation of eShakti garments. I’ve been buying from them and wearing their garments for many years now. I’ve watched the company change and grow and have very much enjoyed seeing the different concepts they have come up with.

Although they aren’t a traditional vintage reproduction clothing company, they do offer many vintage-inspired items with beautiful details and fabrics that are very reminisent of styles from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.

In a moment I will run down the list of why I love eShakti so much, but first I want to talk about a feature that I’ve recently tried and want to tell you all about it. It’s called Fabric Customization. They’ve had this option for a while now, but I’ve just come around to using it. You can choose a style of garment and change the fabric of that garment to something that suits you best.

Here’s an example. I love the style of the dress on the left, but I’m not keen on the cotton poplin fabric. So I had it made with the crepe fabric on the right.

And here’s the result.

And the second dress I customized.


When I first decided to buy a dress from eShakti, I have to admit that pockets were my main objective. I am a staunch proponent of proper pockets in dresses and skirts. For far too long clothing companies have reduced the size of pockets in women’s clothing or have eliminated them all together. So when I heard that a clothing company made dresses and skirts with pockets STANDARD, I was ecstatic! And the pocket sizes are deep, you can hold just about everything you need in there. And most of the pockets are placed so well, that you don’t even know that they are there, so what you carry in your pockets are safe and secure.

So let’s run down some other of the reasons I love eShakti.

It’s all in the details

Sometimes you don’t realize how important certain garment details are until they are presented to you. eShakti is always adding new details that come standard that I never knew I was missing. Such as bra loops (or bra keeps). I hate it when you have a lovely boat neck or sleeveless dress and your bra keeps showing! That’s where a bra loop comes in handy. This little detail can really make you so much more comfortable in your outfit. It’s just a few snaps and a bit of fabric sewn into the shoulder seam, but it really makes a difference.

Another detail that seems to be a fairly recent (in the last few years or so) addition to button-down shirts and shirtdresses are extra hidden buttons that help keep gapping from happening. As a curvy gal with a larger bust, button-down shirts have always been an issue for me and I typically sew up the front to stop gapping from happening. But eShakti has added these small clear hidden buttons on the inside to help with this modesty issue.

Of course eShakti is known for its customization options. You can change the neckline, hem length and sleeve length on every garment. You can even put in your measurements and have the garment customized to your size if you don’t fall into their standard sizing. I highly recomed you use this option. You really get to “create” your very own custom garment. Their standard sizing fits me well for almost all items. I use the custom measurements for items like trousers, sheath dresses or anything that might be a bit more form-fitting. But I always customize my garment by changing either the neckline, sleeves or hem to suit my preferences.

    Thank you so much for this review! I have stalked eShakti for the last few years but just couldn’t make a purchase. If I liked the style I wouldn’t like the fabric, or I was afraid of the quality, or I just didn’t want to measure myself. I’ve decided to take the plunge this fall, I just wish I had your eye for design, you totally made their dresses better!

    One question, what kind of foundation garments do you wear? I haven’t worn a crepe dress in years and I’m a little nervous about that.
