    Default Larger sized clothing in DR- only ladies to post

    I am not a huge woman but I find that most of the clothing on offer here in the DR is for tiny women. Any suggestions on where to shop (on the North Coast) to find reasonably priced clothing in size 14-16 or 1X? Preferably cotton? I found one shop in Cabarete (Maynard's) but it's a little pricey for everyday wear. Other ideas?

    A friend of mine of mine in Santo Domingo gave up trying to find plus size clothing.  She used to shop in NY on trips home, then stopped flying for many years once her parents passed. She bought cotton fabrics and hired a Dominican seamstress to copy some of her favorite clothes.  The only thing she ordered online was underwear 

    Just maybe something to consider.

    Thanks! I have some favorites so I might just have to do that. I've tried ordering online but it's hit and miss and I feel silly for buying something and then having to give it away. (Although I'm sure the recipient appreciates the gift...)

    I know that a Canadian lady I think had a plus size shop in Puerto Plata but can't for the life of me remember her name.

    Found it!! https://www.facebook.com/My-Plus-Size-794124587355590/. Last post was in 2016 though so not sure it is still around, but there are other useful links to DR Plus size shops on that FB page.

    If I were a plus size or just plain fat, I wouldn't be shopping at stores around
    the beach as they tend to sell the type of clothes made for women with much
    nicer and more preferrable bodies.

    Take a city like Santiago, there are a ton of plus size gorrilla's roaming the streets
    around the center of town. No doubt there are plenty of shops here that will meet
    all of your needs be them BIG or small. My suggestion is to get out, grab a cheese
    burger and do some walking around town to find what you are looking for as opposed
    to asking others to do it for you

    Thank you, CristoRey...Big help. You're obviously undergoing a sex change or you are just a man posing as a woman?? Surely, no woman would write such a thing, but who knows, maybe you are a woman who just acts like a man!
