Fit Issues

I ordered this dress online and provided measurements but asked for it to make it a size bigger to shape it down. The thing with Qipao's is that it requires a lot of measurements, and they are actually missing a ton of detailed measurements for the dress. I had a professional tailor, measure me from head to toe and they've originated with the UK with a royal stamp of approval. The dress when received, like a lot of the other reviews, is very hit or miss and it's recommended to check out your local tailor or studio first before ordering online.

When my dress came, it did not hug or fit in the right places. The shoulders and arm holes were way too tight, and I asked for the sleeveless to be vertical than a slant. It was too tight against the side of my thighs, extremely baggy in the tummy area, too tights for the shoulders and back, it wasn't flattering and super baggy in my lower back, and the collar was choking me. The red color has an orange undertone, and the material of the dress was at par, but the embroidery looks and feels really cheap. The embroidery, like some of the other reviews is very amateur, and not as sleek or professional as you'd want it to be and you can definitely find a beautiful Qipao shop or tailor who can make something for you.

Customized white Maxine Bespoke Dress

I contacted East Meets Dress to help me customize this wedding dress for my wedding in December of 2023.

Color customization: They were so accommodating when I requested this dress in white with blue floral designs. The designers sent me 3 different types of blue florals for me to pick from. And even though the one I originally picked was out of stock, the replacement was close enough. I appreciated that the designers sent me updates throughout the process to make sure that I was absolutely happy with the design and placement of florals.

The fit: I initially thought that going to a tailor to get the measurements was a little over the top, but after I received finished dress in the mail I understood why they were so specific. My tailor only had to make small adjustment to the bust and take in an inch from the waist. Everything else was perfect--neck size, dress length, etc (Note: I wore heels that were the same height as my wedding heels to the measuring appointment)

Quality: Honestly 10/10. There were a couple loose threads, but all the floral designs were sewn on very well. The flowers were a little itchy, but that was to be expected since they weren't silk.

Height: 5'3"
Dress size: 6-8

Hot glued embroidery

I was so excited when I received this dress but when I took a look at the embroidery, I realized it was all hot glued on. There were hot glue threads everywhere, loose threads and they didn't even glue some of the embroidery on properly. I had expected a fully embroidered dress, not an arts and crafts qipao. So disappointed.

Beautiful dress

I purchased this dress for our Chinese Tea Ceremony. I got so many compliments. I felt beautiful in it the whole day. I was surprised how well the measurements fit bring a curvy girl. Best customer service and shipping didn't take too long. Thank you!

Beautiful dress!!!

I love my dress!!! I was a little worried because I ordered it only 4-5 months before my reception, but it came so fast - like only 4-5 weeks! And the dress was absolutely stunning as I imagine! I got it altered with the local tailor since I lost weight, but it already fit me pretty well before that! Everyone on my wedding gave me compliments about me and my dress. I was so happy about it. I’ll have another reception when going back to Taiwan and I’ll definitely bring the dress with me!
The customer service was great as well. I have tons of questions and the team answered me nicely each time. Thank you EMD so much for all the patience and hard work!
