Here are Some tips for taking care of your beautiful Qipao dresses.
For Regular Qipao dresses :
If you don’t have time to hand-wash your regular suede fabric, composite lace, velvet, satin, or artificial tea silk Qipao dresses, then please place the regular Qipao into a thick mesh bag ( wash bag) before putting it in a washer. Please make sure the water is tap cold/cold then chose light wash. Finally, please air dry it.
For mulberry silk Qipao dresses :
1) Mulberry silk can’t be washed with soap, washing powder, liquid detergent. Silk will fade when it encounters alkaline chemicals. Avoid soaking. Never use a hard brush or vigorously rub. It is recommended to use shower gel and cold water to hand-wash, and rub gently. It is recommended to air dry.
2) It is okay to dry-clean mulberry silk qipao too.
For Cotton or Linen Qipao dresses / Tang suits:
1) If you don’t have time to hand-wash your cotton and linen Qipao or Tang suits, please place them into thick mesh bags ( wash bags ) before putting it in a washer. It is highly recommended to use tap cold/cold water to wash cotton and linen material items. Avoid prolonged soaking. Never use a hard brush or vigorously rub. Use bleach-free detergent to avoid fading. It is recommended to air dry.
2) It is okay to dry-clean cotton and linen qipao too.
Finally, please make sure to divide the qipao into deep and light colors and wash it separately.
The feeling of a Qipao is dignified, elegant, rich, swaying and full of style. The image of Shanghai women wearing Qipao in the last century has been deeply imprinted in the memory of countless women who pursued elegance, nobility and fashion.

I ordered a size medium and did find the waist part to be a little loose, but of course every body has its own curves. Nothing a tailor can't fix. I love the quality of the qipaos and they look super cute!
Beautiful dress, great quality
The dress arrived much quicker than expected, and it fit really well. Would definitely buy from Beth & Brian again!
Very beautiful, detailed dress. Shipping can use work
The dress is very beautiful and designed well. It doesn’t fit perfect so it does need alterations on the shoulders and bust area. It does have a slight slight give in terms of stretch. I can definitely dance in it. Beth and Brian Qipao customer service were very helpful in getting the right size ordered. They double checked my measurements when I did place my order. Shipping right now is kind of delayed with COVID but I did get express delivery and got it under the 12 day mark which is nice because I have time to get it altered before my event. The customer service they provide is timely, I always got an answer the next day. I just wish the tracking was a little easier because the tracking didn’t upload until about day 8 after the ship, so I went blind on where the dress was for a while. Some of them ship from China so I do understand. I would definitely order another dress from them. They’re very well priced too! I haven’t worn it to my event yet and already got lots of compliments from just the initial try on without alterations.
Great dress, soft material
Got one size up so I could have a tailor sew up the sides. It is a little looser but its a better fit for a tea ceremony with my family. Great quality dress.
This is exactly the cheongsam I have been looking for! I love the rose pattern, deep red color, unique button closures and quality silk material. The length is perfect and it fits like a glove. Delivery time was reasonable given the distance. Tip: definitely go by measurements rather than size label when finding the right size.
