Very lovely clothes.The staff don't bother you one bit (read: acknowledge you at all). Cheapest dress I saw was 850k, largest size I saw (of which there was one item) was a 12. I wish I could have fit into these lovely dresses!

Found a lovely linen top - modern, loose designs in many colours - mostly dresses though. Happy to see larger sizes for western girls.

Gorgeous clothes, available in Western sizes, including plus-size. The staff was very kind, professional, and they spoke English. Prices are reasonable for quality clothing.
