My mom wanted to wear a qipao for a ceremony but a lot of the local qipao stores closed down due to the pandemic. We stumbled upon East Meets Dress and were thrilled that the Melinda Dress could be custom tailored to her size! We did the measurements at home. Dress arrived very quickly and it was a gorgeous fit. Thank you so much for making one of my mom's dreams come true!
I'm a Korean 2023 bride marrying into a Chinese family so for our wedding day, my fiance's family wanted to do a Tea Ceremony. While they said I don't need to buy a whole new Qi Pao for the occasion, I wanted to make it special and memorable. I came across East Meets Dress on a quick Google search. After watching a few YouTube videos, reading some additional reviews online, and coming across a helpful Reddit post, I felt confident that this was the right choice - and it was!
I didn't order the custom sizing - just simply looked at the size chart and ordered the standard sizing according to my measurements. For reference, I'm 5'0 and my measurements are bust 39", waist 32-33", hips 40.5" - ordered 3XL. I can probably get away with 2XL but I wanted it to feel comfortable enough for me to move/dance/eat in. It took just about 3.5-4 weeks to arrive from order to delivery.
It just arrived in the mail last night and it fits wonderfully! I have some wiggle room in case I need to get it altered a bit if I happen to lose more weight, but it fits fine as is!
10/10 recommend this dress by East Meets Dress. It arrived right on time in wonderful condition. Great attention to detail - the seams are even, and the panels of fabric were perfectly sewn together so that the entire pattern lines up. Customer service was responsive and made sure the dress was made to my measurements. It fits so well that it looks custom-made and needs no alterations. I'm excited to wear this for my wedding tea ceremony!
I like this dress ,do you have different color?
The dress is so beautiful in person. Customer service was amazing and quick to reply to my questions that I had. It was so easy to choose the dress for my special day.
We were tired of browsing sketchy sites with no customer support so we started EMD.
