eShakti for all bodies

When you’re not “average” shopping for clothes can be a major challenge.  I know whether every store that ships to my house has tall section.  eShakti is a fun online store that has tons of dresses, tops and bottoms and they are all customizable.  It’s really pretty genius.  You select your size and then add your height.  You can make changes like adding a sleeve, adjusting the hemline, etc.  Here is one of my favorite summer dresses that I first wore at Mom 2.0 in late April and have been loving ever since.




The fact that I have a maxi that’s long enough is, first of all, awesome.  Add in the flattering silhouette and beautiful detail and you have a versatile summer dress.  Here are a few more of the eShakti dresses I’m loving this summer.






What summer dresses are you loving?

Thanks to eShakti for sending me my dress.  All opinions are honest and my own.
