The design is exceptionally great on hugging each and every curve. I wore a mid torso bra to give more definition to my waist line. On my previous orders I have custom requested above knee and decided to do the same with this cut. Once I put it on I realized that the material doesn’t lie flat on my body and paired it up with my black Spanx just for added piece of mind. I do recommend you order it at least knee length or longer. For my short frame it helped elongate my short legs and was a great unknowing match.
You just can’t go wrong with this dress! I paired it up with a red skinny belt and chandelier earrings. As you can tell from my previous posts, I truly enjoy pieces that I can dress up or down, and this dress is perfect for that.
eShakti is fast becoming one of my favorite staples in my closet. Each dress I have worn has attract many compliments both on line and in person. So much so that I am asked by strangers for information of where I purchased them. Having a site that will custom make a dress for my shortness and curves as an “A+” in my book. Blogs like mine help give more insight on making a more precise choice on sizing and custom lengths.
I just checked and this dress is still available. eShakti also offers AMAZING discounts for “First Time Buyers.” Their site announces the discounts available on their home page. Subscribing to their updates also brings on more info and sales. They usually have a special sale and makes a person like me visit them OFTEN!
Keep in mind that many of their designs do not have stretch and suggest you order a size or two bigger. On the cuts that have an elastic panel on the back I usually order a 2X(22W) but do find that the bodice is a bit loose on me. I usually put in a few stitches or double up my brassiere.

“Chevron Stripe Poplin Dress” from eShakti: Custom Made Dress/Size 3X(24W) with Short Sleeve/Above Knee Length. *Recommend knee length or longer for full coverage as material is “fluffy.” I wear it with my black Spanx for added piece of mind.
Shoes 5″ Sequined Heels: NineWest *These are the most comfortable 5″ heels I’ve EVER worn! (No longer available in their line but will post a blog once I find another pair that pass the comfort test)
Get ready for the slew of pictures my children took of me. This is my longest pictorial on my blogs. Not only do I LOVE this dress, apparently so did my children while behind the camera and my cell phone.
I will add a “Run Way” practice walk that I did during this photo shoot. I’m applying to be a model for the upcoming Fashion Week in Los Angeles. My petite size is always a barrier – but I’m hoping my unique personality will have them want to open the door for the many Petite Plus Size Divas, such as myself. Wish me luck and will upload the clip once I’m finished editing the piece.
