The garment I chose for the review was the Monte Carlo Jacket (no longer available). There were a wonderful selection of dresses and it was hard to choose what I wanted to try, but as I am a blazer and jacket enthusiast, I had to check out this piece.
I ordered this jacket with custom measurements. The order form was easy to fill out, it even showed you where exactly how to measure each part of yourself, making it easy for a novice like me.
Overall I really like the fit of this jacket. The sleeves were long enough, the length of the jacket hit perfectly on the hips. The only thing is that it is a bit big through the waist, but the overall fit is great. I fell in love with the asymmetrical pockets (1 on one side, 2 on the other) and the black fabric on the back of the sleeves. It is a unique, no button jacket that fits my 5'10" frame quite well.

Overall, I was very satisfied with my experience. It took about 9 days from the date of order to delivery and again, this piece was customized. If you have a holiday party coming up, you could definitely have one of the beautiful dresses on the site customized and sent to you on time.
The areas on which I think the company could improve is in the selection of pants and jackets. I would love to see more dress pants and also some denim. It would be amazing to have custom fit jeans! The prices are more than I would normally spend, but they are not unreasonable.
The biggest plus of eShakti is that all customization and tailoring is only $7.50 and if you take your pieces to have them tailored, you know that is a huge savings.
I am a tall girl and I know it was great to have a jacket long enough in the arms and torso. My friend Sarah over at Coming Unstitched is a petite girl and she reviewed a dress, so if you're petite go over there and check out her eShakti review.
