Qipao was originally a kind of dress worn by Manchu women in the Qing Dynasty, with no forks on both sides and about one foot long sleeves. After the Revolution of 1911, cheongsam was gradually accepted by Han women and became popular among Han women around the 1930s through improvement. Qipao is more integrated by introducing western technology, perfectly showing the concave and convex lines of women. At this time, the cheongsam is no longer wearing pants inside, but with silk stockings, exposing the whole leg through opening. The improved cheongsam has gradually become the standard dress for women in modern China. The pictures we see today are the women wearing cheongsams in Beijing during the Republic of China. Under the package of cheongsam, Chinese women's self-confidence and enchantment are more obvious.
