in china, the traditional costume of woman is QiPao, which is a kind of simple skirt without sleeves. newadays, you can see this kind of costume in lots of beauty contests. why do women in beauty contests love QiPao? I guess, that is just because QiPao can make women look great and attractive. If a woman is in a great shape, then QiPao is very suitable to her, but if a woman are overweight, then QiPao will make her look terrible!
many chinese girls wear red QiPao at the day when they get married, oh, the red QiPao will make her look outstanding among people.
