eShakti just sent me a survey, which I dutifully filled out in the hopes of getting better options.

However, in a list of13 garments to give feedback on, there were on 3 tops (2 of which were the exact same cowl top in different colors) and 1 pair of trousers -- everything else was dresses.

Considering out of everything I've bought from eShatki over several years, I've bought 1 dress, 1 skirt, and 2 trousers, with everything else being a top - mostly shirts with a smattering of jackets (and if you know me IRL, you know I love jackets).

You'd think they'd be asking me about their shirts and jackets, not dresses. I don't buy dresses.

Basically I suggested the following:

  • More princess seaming

  • Use darker skinned models for some of the items, especially with colors that would look good on them

  • Trousers must have pockets! No pockets, no sale!

  • Trousers should have a length option appropriate for people wearing flats.

  • More blazers

  • The boatneck is not a great neckline

  • Offer the square neckline option more often

  • Less waist seams on tops

  • Given actual fiber percentages for poly/cotton blends

  • How about you actually make a line of pantsuits?


That said, eShakti is still one of the few places doing mass customization of women's clothes at a price point many people can afford, and I've been quite happy with almost everything I've bought from them.
