The cheongsam - the traditional Chinese dress most often associated with that culture - can be fitted so that it is a slimming sheath. We often see the skin-tight version in Hollywood depictions. It is not necessary to wear a cheongsam dress like a sausage skin and is not even authentic. Chinese women have lived and worked in this simple, elegant dress for centuries.
Mini cheongsam dresses have always been an alluring and chic clothing item. Found in a variety of styles and colours, mini cheongsam dresses make for ideal clothing especially in the months of summer. Their versatility comes from the ability to be worn either for casual and informal gatherings or more serious business affairs.
