I cannot wait to wear these shoes at my September wedding! They are even more attractive in-person than on-screen. The gold and red are classy, cheerful and bright without being gaudy in any way. The block heel is elegant and not too chunky. I am a reliable US 7 in shoes normally, and the size 7 here fit me perfectly. Customer service even emailed before shipping my order with a request for me to measure the length of my foot to ensure a good fit. The sticker on the bottom of the sole says size 37, whereas a US 7 usually translates to a 38, so I was worried they might be too small when I saw the sticker, but the sizing was just perfect - I would rely on the website and customer service's guidance on sizing. I have worn these around the house for about 30 mins, and they are very comfy right out of the box. Upon opening, there was a smell (guessing dye and/or glue), but a day of airing out was all it took for the smell to dissipate. Great quality, and a unique shoe from a reputable company; there is really no equivalent anywhere else online if you're in the US (trust me, I looked). My only request of East Meets Dress... when are y'all going to make these as a flat so that I can kick off the heels after the ceremony and dance the night away at the reception in style?
I could not find a mandarin collar dress for myself (to wear as mother of the bride) anywhere until trawling the internet I found East meets Dress. It was my lucky day. East meets Dress could not have been more helpful and created a dress specifically for me - beautiful silk, fits like a glove, beautifully finished, quickly made and delivered to my door here in the UK. A real 5 star performance. Who could ask for more! Huge thanks to the whole team.
Gorgeous style and fits very well! The online sizing directions were very precise and the team was very response!
Very pretty dress! I cannot wait to wear it! Sizing runs on the smaller side. I'm usually a US M, but ordered an L after doing the measurements. True to size though and fit very well!
Not only are the pins absolutely beautiful, my purchase came with small treats! They also shipped pretty fast. Definitely buying some more stuff in the future!
They are beautiful! I ordered 50 as favors for my daughters wedding. They came in the pretty Gold wrapping & were each individually wrapped. Wedding is in 3 days so it was close! Order your items at least a month in advance to be sure to get on time. Staff was great with emailing me & sending me tracking information :)
Thank you so much for such wonderful customer service, prompt responses, and a beautiful gown for our wedding day! The lace is gorgeous and the fabric is so soft. Makes it so easy to move on such a busy day as well.
I ordered it kinda too close my wedding date but they were able to reach out and let me know when to expect it. Also to speed up the process as much as possible to meet my deadline. It turns out awesome looking and can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day!
Gorgeous silk brocade fabric and we'll made garment. Even my mom was impressed! I've been recommending EastMeetsDress to all my friends since.
Great customer service! I placed the order as an XS but also submitted my measurements and they were able to steer me in the right direction with a S! It arrived timely and fits wonderfully! I can't wait to wear it!
Bought these shoes for my tea ceremony that I’ve since postponed. But as far as I can tell from trying the shoes on they seem comfortable and well made. Though I do have to note that there’s quite a strong smoky tar smell when I opened the package but it could be because the shoes are made to order. Nevertheless, there’s plenty of time for them to air out now ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
East Meets Dress has been so quick to respond and help with any issues along the way! I told them I was hoping to have our outfits for an engagement shoot, and they got it to me well before the day! We've tried it on, and everything fits perfectly!! Thank you so much for our outfits, we love the Yuan Jacket and it fits so well!! Now for the photos!! We can't wait!! :)
Dress was so beautiful and so well made. I'm in Australia, and it arrived so much faster than I expected. Would absolutely recommend to others!
This turned out way better than I could imagine! Due to COVID, my wedding plans took a turn and definitely didn’t think i would have enough time to get a cheongsam in time. I gave my measurements, and though they didn’t make it “custom”, it somehow fit perfectly so I am grateful! Everyone was wowed by the fit and the design. Ordering was great and the response time was extremely quick too from going back and forth about the sizing etc. Highly recommend!
The Qipao as absolutely stunning and fit me like a glove! I did have to get it altered just a tiny bit but EMD was able to suggest two tailors in the Bay Area that were phenomenal. At this point I want to buy even more dresses from them because the craftsmanship is beautiful and every dress is so unique. Shipping was faster than expected which made stressing over it non existent. I can't wait to wear it again!
I had a really difficult time finding a cheongsam for multiple reasons.... 1. I have a tiny upper body and wide hips and any off the rack choices either I could not pull down over my hips or were like a giant sack on the top 2. I have red hair (Caucasian marrying into a Chinese family) and look like a tomato in red, and there is a very small selection of cheongsam not in red. I was so happy to find East Meets Dress, I was able to get a custom colour dress (green) and made to measure, so my dress looks amazing! I don't look like a tomato and can pull my dress down over my hips with ease. Very excited to wear it for our tea ceremony :)
I received the dress quickly and it is beautiful! It definitely feels high quality and well made. The dress fits perfectly and I won't need any further alterations. The communication about custom sizing measurements was great. I'd highly recommend getting your dress here!
I was looking for a wedding dress that wasn’t over the top, simple, elegant, and most importantly, traditional. Being a fan of the cheongsam silhouette, I opted for a Chinese traditional dress over the western styles as I don’t prefer them. Living abroad, it was difficult to find a shop that allowed me to our base the dress, rather than just hire one. I was also unable to travel to Asia to obtain one due to the current pandemic. Luckily for me, I came upon East Meets Dress in my research, and knew that this was the store for me! Everyone I corresponded with was extremely helpful, and my dress came even quicker than I expected! It is such a stunning dress, and I cannot be more pleased! Thank you so much for such a fantastic, smooth, and friendly experience!
Thank you East Meets Dress!! I ordered a ready to ship Gemma about three weeks out from the wedding date 😱 I’d taken too long to make up my mind. But the team was amazing! They responded right away and shipped it as soon as I placed the order. I actually received it within 3 days. Crazy!
The fit was a little roomier than expected, and could have been worn without alterations. But it was very easy for my tailor to take it in.
For reference I’m 5’4”, soft hourglass and 155lb when I ordered it. I ordered a 2XL which was a little disheartening 😅 but Asian sizing 🤷🏻♀️
The Melinda dress is absolutely stunning. It catches the light beautifully with its reflective gold lace and the fabric has substantial weight so even though the slit is thigh high, it feels totally secure. Modest and traditional, but modern and sexy! Perfect for so many occasions. Sole was able to ship this to me ahead of their normal shipping schedule so I could get this in time, I am very grateful for her excellent service.
First off, I don't normally go for a form fitting dress but wanted to wear something more traditional for my tea ceremony as I have an a-line dress for my white wedding dress. :) This dress is beautiful and I opted for the dragon/phoenix pattern which is perfect!! I decided to go with the gemma dress after trying the sample kit and get it custom made with my measurements. When I received it on time, it fit perfectly and I'm so happy with it!! No further alterations necessary and I can't wait to wear it for my tea ceremony! Also huge thanks to the customer service team for answering all my questions before placing my order. :)
I got this for my fiance to wear for our tea ceremony and overall it's a good quality jacket! Beautiful brocade and I love that it's half brocade and half just red so that it is a bit more understated. The buttons were so easy to work with which is such a plus! The shoulders fit my fiance perfectly but the lower half needs to be taken in a bit. Luckily it can be altered easily! Also, glad that customer service suggested to size up based on the measurements I provided.
