SUMISSURA CUSTOM DRESS REVIEW

SUMISSURA CUSTOM DRESS REVIEW

 

Similar to eShakti, Sumissura offers clothing that’s made to your measurements. I wanted to give them a try and see if it was better than what I’d find in the petite section. The process was pretty simple, I picked out the style of dress and fabric I wanted. Then they asked me to input several measurements and my dress arrived a few weeks later.

Sumissura Sheath Dress


What I loved...

  • Color - For some reason, I’ve really been feeling navy blue lately.

  • Defined waistline - This feature emphasizes my pear curves :)

  • Nice length - Since this dress was custom tailored to my measurements, it fell just above my knees right where I wanted it to.


What could have been better...

  • Extra fabric in skirt -  While the skirt of the dress fit my hips, it seemed like there was a fabric bubble at widest part of my hips. I was hoping the dress would be form fitting than it was.

  • Slightly roomy in chest - It seemed like there was extra fabric in the chest area. It wasn’t a total deal breaker though. I found the skirt issue to be more annoying.


Verdict: Overall this dress fit my shape, but I found there were certain areas where it didn’t fit so well. I might try going to a tailor to see if I can get the skirt altered. I was happier with my experience shopping at eShakti because the jumpsuit fit me much better and didn't feel like it needed any alterations.
