Maybe find someone who will custom-make you a cheongsam, and then you can choose whatever fabric you want.  (Since  it sounds like it’s only the fabric that bothers you.)  It’s probably slightly more difficult, but not impossible if you live in a moderate-sized city to find a seamstress who will do this.  I would ask at the same places you buy them at.  When I went shopping, some places would actually tell me that if I didn’t like what I saw, they’d make me whatever I wanted.

I know what you mean about the fabric – some of it is very bright red… and I don’t normally wear red.  I only wore mine for a brief tea ceremony and to great guests as they came into the reception, so I didn’t wear mine for very long.

@tealeaf132:  You should consider getting one made in Hong Kong if you’re going there for your reception.  My Fiance’s grandma went to HK recently was able to get a custom made one done in 2 weeks.  It’s much cheaper and more variety! Hope that helps. =)
