Tailor-made qipaos or cheongsams used to be the epitome of haute couture for Chinese women in the early 1900s. Socialites of old Shanghai would anxiously await their turn for the tailor to measure them so that their qipao or cheongsam was a perfect fit for their body. The fitted dress allowed a woman to dress with elegance, grace and modesty while showing off her figure.
