Don’t you love the beautiful color and leaf pattern? But my absolute favorite thing about this dress is the high-low hemline. The below-knee-length front actually dips to below mid-calf-length in the back. I just read a fashion column in a magazine saying that this is a really hot style right now. What I didn’t like for me, however, was the no-sleeves feature. First, it’s winter, which means it’s too chilly for sleeveless dresses. Second, I’m getting older, and my arms aren’t as toned as they used to be, so I prefer some coverage. Fortunately, with eShakti’s customization option, I easily changed the sleeve type to elbow length. Perfect! I was also given the option to remove the pockets, which I did because pockets sometimes make me look wider in the hips, where I’m wide enough already. And did I mention that the skirt is fully lined? If you like a shorter hemline, you have the option to change that too, although I elected to keep the longer length. Now, this dress is perfect for my figure ~ and the holidays!
To ensure a good fit, you can measure yourself (bust, waist, hips) to customize the size. They also provide the proportions for the standard sizes so you can choose the best one. I debated between size 8 and 10 because I wear both sizes depending on the cut of the clothing. I finally opted for the 10, and I’m glad I did because it fits just right since the dress has no stretch (helpful information that is also provided in the dress description). I think the smaller size would have been too tight. I also checked the washing instructions because I hate to spend money on dry-cleaning and found that my dress is machine washable. Hurray!
