House of Blouse Review


A few weeks ago, I purchased a blouse online from one of the coolest new internet startups yet – House of Blouse, and I thought, why not review them for the blog?

So first things first, HoB is a website where you can design saree blouses online – like, I know right, it’s literally every girl’s saree dream come true! They’ve a wide array of fabrics and predesigned styles for you to choose from. Trust me when I tell you that the blouse designer applet that they’ve in their website is a great way to while away free time at work!

Now having said all that, playing around with an applet is one thing, but giving an order for a blouse without meeting a tailor, and this is when tailors whose shops you spend good time in screw up with their measurements, is daunting. I took my time to try this website out, and boy, am I glad that I did! 

So, I ordered a closed ‘U’ neck blouse with elbow length sleeves and an open back in the prettiest turquoise, floral printed blue raw silk fabric, ever! As for sizing, I picked standard sizing (my body was just made for readymade clothes – strange, but I’ve found that clothes standard measurements have always fit me like a glove in comparison to even tailored clothes). However, HOB has options where they’ll pick your blouse up/you can enter in your measurements based on the handy measuring guide that they have on their website. They’ve really thought of everything.

The price of the blouse came up to Rs. 2,300/- which didn’t seem too bad considering I had to factor in fabric cost, and once I completed the order, the wait began.

My order came in one week (thanks to a one time coupon I had had for express shipping), and here’s how it looked!

The fit was great (HoB also offers free alteration within 30 days in case the fit isn’t up to your expectation, which is awesome), and this blouse got me a ton of compliments too!

One small note though – although the description of the fabric was “raw silk”, the fabric wasn’t pure raw silk, it was a blend. They do have pure fabrics though, so look out for the “pure” tag when you pick your fabric.

Overall, it was a very new, very cool and very hassle free experience shopping at house of blouse! I would definitely recommend this website, especially to brides/wedding guests abroad because they’ve international shipping too!
