I am sure that most western women, who live on or visit Koh Samui, have been frustrated on occasions when they find a stunning outfit and then discover it has been designed to fit our smaller Thai cousins. Even less appealing is finding a dress that does fit but has an unflattering and rather soul destroying XXXL label in it even though it is a UK size 12!
Shopping in Thailand can be great fun but building up a great wardrobe can be very challenging unless of course you shop at Island Girl, a one of a kind boutique that is situated in Bophut, on the ring roads trendy line of boutique shops near to the Peace Resort.
