The number doesn’t matter


Product received

It’s taken me a while and lots of body shape changes (fat kid, in-shape kid, in-shape adult, pregnant mama, breastfeeding mama, repeat a lot of times), but I think I’ve finally figured it out. Those numbers and letters on clothes tags? They don’t mean a darn thing.

I can grab a 5 pairs of size 6 jeans at a store and the can range from, I.can’ to woah, I can put another person in here with me. Which means, in theory, I could grab one lucky size 2 and it will fit, or I might need a size 12.

So yeah, those numbers don’t mean a thing. The more I try on clothes, the more I realize it. And, I’m happier, too because I’m not stressing about fitting into a certain size. Instead, it’s about how it fits, how it looks on me, and most importantly, how I feel.

I was recently introduced to eShakti, the only online women’s fashion apparel company offering size 0-36W and custom clothing. They cover all of the bases with their sizing and put all of the measurements on there for you. Even better? They allow for customizations of all of their clothes. So, you start with a size, and then get a ton of options to make it your own. You can change sleeve lengths and styles, dress lengths, swap out hemlines and necklines, and a myriad of other options. So even though you start with that number, you can really make sure that your clothes are going to fit.

I lucked out with my awesomely bright pink jacket. The measurements were just so that I didn’t need to tweak it at all! The girls are still bigger than normal thanks to feeding Miss B and I still like the fit.

  4. I was out shopping a few weeks ago and grabbed a pair of jeans in my size and well, let’s just say their idea of what a size 4 is and an actual size 4 are two completely different things! Theirs was like a size negative 2.

  8. I love the coat! And the color.

    I’ve seen the same thing with size going on with my daughter. She can wear a size 1, 2, or 3. And sometimes a size 5. She’s 15 though, so the numbers don’t mean a thing to her. The numbers on the scale do though. -_- But that’s another story. 😉

  16. I’ve never heard of this company before, but I love the concept! I don’t care about the size either – as long as it looks good and makes me feel good, it doesn’t matter!

  17. Love that jacket! You’re right… size mean nothing. I have a size 12 pair of jeans and a size 6 – both fit the same. Shrugs…

    I have heard and seen so much about eShakti and I have yet to try it out. Must do!
