Chinese Cheongsam

The cheongsam is a body-hugging one-piece Chinese dress for women, maintaining some features of female clothes of Manchu, in Mandarin Chinese, it is called Qipao. Modified in Shanghai in the 1920s, it was made fashionable by socialites and upper class women.
Since it is easy to slip on and comfortable to wear, the cheongsam fits well the female figure. Its neck is high, collar closed, and its sleeves may be either short, medium or full length, depending on season and personal favors. The dress is buttoned on the right side, with a loose chest, a fitting waist, and slits up from the sides, all of which combine to set off the beauty of the female shape. As we've mentioned at Onlinechinatours that now it enjoys a growing popularity in the international world of high fashion. Quite a lot Chines actresses wear cheongsam to participate in important international occasions, helping them attract worldwide attention, and also masses of foreign people like to have a try on Chinese cheongsam.

Beautiful, right?She proves that Chinese cheongsam not only fit Chinese or eastern female figures, western girls are also charming in cheongsam

It seems there is some melancholy shown out from her eyes, in such beautiful cheongsam, what can she think about?

Miss Etiquette in cheongsam:dignified

twin girls in red cheongsam, though they resemble each other in the appearance, they are different in cheongsam, I think, the left one is a little bit shy. Why they  bulge their tripe? Maybe it is right the difference between young girls and mature woman.
