Sometimes the hardest thing about finding dresses, especially ones online. They are too tight in the wrong places. They are too tight in the hips or too tight in the chest. I can go up a size and then they are too big on top and I look like I am drowning in them. It can be very frustrating.
I recently found a way around this problem with eShakti. eShakti is a great company with the prettiest dresses, skirts, and tops. The best part is how customizable they are! They have their dresses at standard sizes but you can also get the items made to fit just you. You can submit your measurements to the company so that they can make your item to fit just you. They ask for many different parts so you can be assured you are getting the BEST fitting dress for YOU! This is exactly what I did. I was afraid the standard size wouldn't fit exactly so I submitted my own measurements. The dress felt like it was made exactly for me, and the best news it was!!
There are way too many adorable options on this site. The patterns and colors are so beautiful. Speaking of customizable, any of the dress patterns can be tweaked. You can change sleeves, change necklines and length. My particular dress I did not change anything, mainly because I preferred the dress the way it was designed. I adore the floral print, the cute waist belt, and the length. The fabric is a perfect thickness but not too thick where it is hot. It is not at all see through. The dress is also super comfortable!
This was probably the easiest way for me to find a dress that actually fits. This beats me going from store to store trying on items, being disappointed that most do not work for my figure and causing a bigger headache than what it is worth. It beat me shopping online to pay too much for shipping to just have to send it back again or take it to my nearest store. Within a few weeks, my dress arrived beautifully in a box. When I tried it on, it felt like magic! It was perfect! No tears shed. No foul language spewed. I was all smiles. I was ready to take my dress to a field of flowers and dance around like I was in a Disney movie. Unfortunately, there aren't any open fields of flowers up by me so I guess the streets of Savannah, GA will have to do...
Seriously though, I brought this dress down with me to South Carolina and Georgia when we were house hunting for our upcoming move. It made it through a 2 1/2 hour car ride to and from. It made it through the heat of the southern sun. It made it through walking around, driving around. It made it through a very early start and a late end to our day and the whole time I felt so comfortable in it. It was roomy but not big. I was able to comfortably get in and out of the car. I was never overly hot or sweaty. It was breezy and the fabric stayed intact. Our luck may not have been there when trying to find a house but at least I felt and looked good in the process!! eShakti has made a fan out of me and I will for sure be ordering more in the future!
Speaking of comfort, I paired the dress with these Target Mules I bought this year. They are probably the most comfortable shoes I own. I love the straw look. They are so versatile with almost any dress, skirt, pants, or even shorts. The color is neutral, although they do come in black, and they are incredibly comfortable. I walked around all day with no foot pain or blisters. This wasn't my first time wearing these shoes but the same has applied with every other time I wore them. l will be living in these cuties all spring and summer. Since they are les than $25, they are really worth every penny!!
