I am so excited for the dress I ordered. I know it won't arrive for another two weeks, but oh how I want to wear it NOW!!! Let me back up a bit. I have been blessed with a body. My body is a non-traditional standard of beauty, but in my mind, it has a lot to offer. I am about to get REAL here ladies and gents; I am 5 feet 2 inches and 235 pounds. I gained about 100 or so pounds through years of fertility treatments. I have huge breasts and wear a DDD cup bra. My poor mom spent most of my teen years driving my sister and I an hour or so away from the house to purchase bras from an outlet mall for a decent price. (think $50.00 + per) Anyhow I digress. I have a short torso and longer legs, meaning too long for a traditional petite hem, but too short for a regular hem. (I usually just order regular though) I also happen to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which means we aim to dress modestly. (think short sleeves, and knee length, and necklines that do not show a ton of cleavage)
So I stumbled across a website called eShakti which offers a wide variety of tops, skirts, and dresses which can be customized for a flat fee of $7.50; in sizes 0-36W (6x). So you find a dress you totally love, but you need it to fit your wonky body, well you can grab a trusted friend (since they will be measuring you in your unmentionables) and a measuring tape and you can input your measurements and get a dress make just for you!

So let's say you have a promotional event for work (or spouses work) and you need an appropriate frock for the occasion - find a dress you like - click on it and customize away. For me, I would need to add sleeves, and since it is winter time, I may go with an elbow length sleeve.
eShakti is offering 35% off there whole site AND if you register with them, you can get a 25.00 off coupon code in your email - as long as you use the email address you registered with, you can use the coupon.
This is the dress I selected and should arrive to my home mid December. Once it arrives, I will take a few pictures and post them up. Go check out the website and tell me about what you think! eShakti.com
