- What is the difference between a qipao and a cheongsam?  

Although both Qipao and Cheongsam refer to the Chinese-designed garment that features a mandarin collar, these two terms are often used interchangeably. However, they stem from different origins.  


This is a Mandarin name for “banner robe”. It was used to define the robes worn by Manchurians. On that note, the Qipao is actually related to the Manchu robe called, ‘changpao’, which was worn by the Han Chinese men and women in the early Qing Dynasty. 

The Manchu qipao is not form-fitting, and they were loose-fitting to hide a woman’s figure. As years passed, the qipao evolved to feature a Chinese collar, body-hugging silhouette and a sexy slit. 


On the other hand, Cheongsam derives from Cantonese which translates to “long gown”.  It was initially used to describe loose-fitting ‘dress shirts’ that were worn by Chinese men in the early 1900s. 

These days, the Cantonese word now describes it as the Chinese national dress worn by women.
