Be aware that when buying T-shirts they will try to tell you that XL Costs more! Normally an extra 50 Baht per piece.

Don't swallow it like I did first up.

Also make sure you try on everything (even if buying multiples of same item). Sometimes we have found that sizes can vary from item to item or that a different size ends up in the bag.

Don't know where you are going to shop but I think it is a problem at most shops. I wear a size large in the western world but always buy XL here. To find bigger than that is usually a problem.

Now, if you go to the malls, you will have better luck finding western sizing and bigger sizes but the prices will also be higher.
