Today, we're kicking off our series with eShakti.
We discovered the site while bemoaning the difficulty of finding cute cocktail dresses that accommodate our DD chest. This e-tailer offers affordable clothing in sizes ranging from 0 to 26, and states as their top-most mission the goal "to make every customer look her absolute best." How can you not love that?
But here's the best part: everything on the site is customizable. The ethos here is that every woman deserves a good fit. The site states, "One size does not fit all and all sizes are not created equal. For too long women have been forced to conform to standard sizing that too often doesn't fit properly." Amen.
Here's how it works: input your cup size and height, and dresses are made to measure and shipped in three days or less. For an additional $7.95, they'll tailor your ensemble even further to your measurements, which are then saved and available for future orders. You can also change the necklines, shorten or lengthen the hem and add or subtract sleeves. And all this for under $100 per dress. The style owes a bit to the exotic detailing that we love at Anthropologie while also offering great wear-anywhere building block pieces.
