It depends greatly on your weight, Redaria. Are you an Irish land whale or a German walking strudel? Most Chinese women are thin, so it's not sure you can find good clothin that would fit you...

There are some shops that sell clothing for mythical creatures, but they are specifically targeted toward Westerners. So it won't be easy to find something affordable AND XXL.

Tell moar info about your extra pounds and I'm sure i can ask Pedro, the Mexican IT guy, to give me some addresses. His wife packs quite the xtra pounds herself!

Redaria, you should try going to Beijing Zoo Market. Just opposite the zoo you'll see a number of wholesale warehouses. Each one is crammed with stall after stall of clothes vendors. Beijing zoo is probably one of the cheapest places to buy clothes but it always gets extremely crowded and noisy here at the weekends, and you can't try on clothes. Make sure you know your clothes size before you go as there's no returning items after you've bought them. The best way to get there is taking line 4 directly to Beijing Zoo station. Go midweek if possible.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
