Press SampleProduct given for Testing and Review Purposes 

Growing up, I had owned a few oriental style dresses so I have always been drawn to that style because it looked unique, traditional, chic and elegant and the same goes for this Cheongsam (Qipao) which is very delicate and beautiful.
This cream colored beige linen dress in the size XL, fit me just right because it was loose fitting and not tight at all. I'm 5'2 and I weigh 107 pounds, my bust size is 34-35 B and my waist size is 27 inches for reference. The XL is supposed to be a Small in USA sizing so sizing needs to be accurate in order for the dress to fit correctly and the length of the dress is long, a little above the ankles.
I love how the linen feels and how flowy it looks, I felt very cool and breezy wearing it on a hot day and I felt very unique and confident in it.
The design is simply beautiful with the mandarin collar, Chinese knotted buttons, the colorful gorgeous art work painting or print of a lotus flower and dragonfly and the two slits on the hem revealing the inner slip. The dress is a bit sheer on the back although it has a slip, but I wore it with some beige underwear even with that the panty line showed a bit but it depends on what type of undergarment you wear, a brief style worked better for me on coverage but luckily the dress is fully lined.
This is my first linen dress so I didn't know what to expect and when the dress came in the package and I took it out, it was wrinkle on the bottom, so I put in the dryer on low setting to see if it would be wrinkle free but no luck I had to iron it the old fashioned way. LOL Unfortunately, the dress does not have a care tag on it, so I had to research on how to care for it, which is to hand wash if it's not soiled and then lay flat to dry or machine wash on delicate with similar clothing and air dry but yes it wrinkles very easily.
Overall, this is a beautiful, well sewn, well made dress and it looks great with heels, flats or sandals and in the picture, I wanted to be as comfy as I could be and just wore my black flip flop sandals and it still looked cute. You can make this dress look casual or dressy depending on the accessories and shoes you wear with it.
