eShakti has a new customization service that I think will be a hit with plus size fashionista’s. These days I am all about having the ability to customize things that I need. If you’ve ever found yourself shopping online, then you are familiar with the fact that finding the perfect dress isn’t easy. Just before purchasing items in your shopping cart, many concerns may arise: “What if the sleeves are too tight?” “Is the neckline inappropriate for work?”

How to Measure Yourself for a Custom fit
- Measure over undergarments
- Keep tape measure level and close, not tight
- If possible, have someone else measure you to ensure accuracy
- Shoulder: This one will be totally easier with the help of a friend. Measure across your upper back from the tip of one shoulder to the tip of the other.
- Chest: With your arms relaxed at your sides, measure above the bust at the armhole, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, and around your back over your shoulder blades.
- Bust: Wearing your usual bra, with arms relaxed at your sides, measure the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, under the armhole and around your back about where your bra strap is.
- Under Bust: Measure all the way around your torso immediately beneath your breast.
- Waist: Measure around the narrowest part of your torso at your natural waistline. FYI: To find your natural waistline, bend to one side. There will usually be a crease where you bend. Often it is just below your ribcage. That’s your natural waistline. Don’t worry since this may seem higher than where you actually wear your pants and jeans.
- Hips: Standing with your heels together, measure around your body at the broadest part of your hips. This will include the fullest part of your backside too and should be just about where your legs meets your torso. (approximately 8″ below natural waistline.)
- Upper Arm: Place the tape measure around the widest part of your upper arm, your bicep. Then bend your arm slightly at the elbow.
- Height: Standing with your feet slightly apart and your back to a wall, measure straight from the floor to the top of your head.
- Bra Cup Size: Check the tag on your favorite bra and enter the Bra and Cup Size.
This may seem like alot to go through when all you want to do is shop but if you have all of these measurements when you go shopping at eShakti or anyplace else you will know instantly what designers will work for you and who will not.
