If you are bigger than the average Filipino, and most of us westerners are, getting clothing that fits can be difficult if you live in the Philippines. If you are a big westerner, and more and more westerners are quite big, getting clothes that you can even get on your body can be impossible in the Philippines, or so it would seem.
Having lived here for more than 15 years, though, a lot has changed. When we first moved to the Philippines it was literally impossible to find clothes here which I could wear. But, in more recent years it has gotten much easier. In fact, now I can walk into certain stores in Davao and walk out in a new wardrobe. In many parts of the Philippines, though, it still is not nearly that easy.
Recently, I got a question from my good friend, Paul, asking about getting clothes here in the Philippines. Paul is also a big fellow, and he has had this question on his mind for some time now, so he asked me. I thought it was an important enough, and widely asked, question that should be shared with my listeners and readers here on Live in the Philippines Web Magazine. So, I hope you will give it a listen.
Listen in, hopefully you will learn something, or perhaps you have information based on your experience, and you can share that with other readers and listeners! You would be most welcome to do so!
