Loving the 2nd Trimester in My eShakti Dress - Review

I'm coming up this weekend on the 22 week mark in pregnancy for this darling little baby #2! I love feeling the kicks and going on walks regularly now that it is cooling off a bit! I have to say, I really think this baby is super kind. I'm not sure what it is exactly but I keep telling Josh -- this is a sweet baby -- tell me I'm not crazy!

I was given an opportunity to choose and review a dress from eShakti -- Hopefully you'll get a good feel for what they have to offer! The opinions are totally mine and I got to keep the dress in exchange for this review! So fun :)

Straight off the bat I noticed that the site was very user friendly -- I love that you are able to customize and have your dress tailored to your exact measurements! I didn't feel like I had to apologize or feel embarrassed about my changing pregnancy body, I just handed my husband the tape measure and entered in the numbers! eShakti had images for the how-to on various measurements, which was perfect for my husband, who isn't much of a tailor himself :)
The dress I chose to clothe my currently almost 22-weeks-pregnant self was this lovely shirtdress from the eShakti site!
I don't own any structured and tailored dresses, so this was a piece that caught my eye! There were so many customization options possible not only in regards to personal measurements, but also sleeve length, fabric color, overall length and keeping/removing pockets.
My multi-talented husband shot a few pictures for me to share this look with you! I hope you notice the Open Door Traders earrings made by my sister and her hubs -- I just love them so much! In regards to the dress, the coloration of the material was greener than I had thought it would be from the website's picture - thought it would have more of the blue hues in it. In different lights, you can catch different perspectives -- but all in all I do like the color!
I'm so not used to having a tailored dress! I could really tell when I put it on that it wasn't a one-size sort of dress, I knew that they used my measurements -- because they are unique right now, being in my second trimester of pregnancy! I actually scooted up my belt so that it would hit above my baby bump!
The buttons on this dress are really cool and seem durable! I like the sleek and architectural look. The dress came with two extras just in case.
I really love the concept of eShakti because so many times women become self-conscious about their body especially while shopping for clothes. When they don't fit in all of the predetermined "normals" of a particular size, it can become a discouraging experience. eShakti's customization and 0-36W size options are key and beneficial to women!
