Need to see a cheongsam dress in person before you make a purchase? With our sample cheongsam kit, you'll be able to feel our dresses, touch the fabrics, and see the details up close before your wedding day.
How it works:
*Due to the fact that all of our dresses are made-to-order, our sample dresses only come in limited sizes (typically, the size that the model on our product page is wearing).
*The sample dress kit is only valid for U.S. based customers.
*If you choose the Mindy or Xia Bespoke Dress, there is an additional $25 that will be returned back in store credit (becomes $75 store credit in total)
I am looking for my Wedding dress and requested 3 dresses (2 Sample dresses and an additional add on after I spoke with customer service). It was so helpful to see, feel, and try on the dresses. They are heavier than I expected and very good quality. Customer service was very helpful and friendly too.
Given East Meets Dress is online-only, I initially thought the sample dress kit is really great idea to try out the dresses and see the fabric material & color in person before making a decision. But I'm so disappointed. One of the two dresses that sent to me was completely different dress than the one I selected. I was also interested in wine red but got a sample dress in red. While $50 credit goes back toward dress purchase is nice, but the sample dress kit was not helpful especially considering the price of $75 for only two dresses.
I knew I wanted a qipao for my wedding reception but don’t like ordering things blindly online without trying them on. The sample kit was great to try on, particularly for me to see the length I prefer for the dress and also the details like the buttons and trim. If you know you want a traditional Chinese dress, then I definitely recommend doing the sample kit.
I requested two sample dresses to try on. It was packaged very neatly and they provided accessories to check out. Good way to try on the dresses and get a feel for the fabric and color before ordering a custom size!
I think $75 is a steep price to try on 2 dresses that come in random sizes. One dress was probably a size 0 and the other one was probably a 12. This is mentioned under the product description, but only as an asterisk. It was nice to see the quality of the dresses, but very difficult to tell what the dresses would actually look like on my body. It would be better if we could actually pick the sizes and if more dresses were available as options to try on. I appreciate the $50 credit offered if you return within a week, but I do not think it is worth the price since it wasn’t very helpful overall.
We were tired of browsing sketchy sites with no customer support so we started EMD.
