A traditional /proper Qipao is normally made of 100% silk and normally it should be custom -made. Since the core spirit of Qipao is to show 100% real women's curve, It need to be tailored very tight to your bust and bottom. As it is made of silk, which means "no elasticity"， it is cut on both side up to the upper thigh. While women walking in Qipao, showing part of upper leg become a sexy art.. This cut is so important that it needs to be made by a expert to know exact where to be, based on your body measure, to allow you to walk and sit properly without too much revealing.
So my very first Qipao (the white one shown in below picture) was made in 2006 (Thanks mum!) and my 2nd one in black was made in 2008 and I still wear them today. However I did bring them to tailor 3 times to adjust the size...well, I had gained a lot weight and then lost a lot weight..HAHAHA.
I have carefully selected one Qipao tailor for you. You can see a few sample she made and sample show from other buyers. These Qipao are all custom made to your preference
