Having had prior difficulty in “Little India”/Artesia, CA we elected to go to India to get all of our outfits. My husband is also plus size and taller than the average Indian male.
In SoCal I was given very limited options and custom outfits would be astronomically priced around $8-10k USD. In India, we went to Ahmedabad and went straight to Asopalav. The salesperson assigned to our group was extremely helpful and was showing us a great variety of outfits in the colors and styles we wanted. I stopped him and said, “Please only show me the outfits that are available in my size – I don’t want to be disappointed.” He said that they manufacture all of their outfits, and therefore any fabric can be made to any size and any specification. I was over-joyed! They took my measurements and detailed descriptions of sleeve length, neck line shape/depth, back, and other decorative details.
I was apprehensive at first since it would take several weeks before I would have my outfits to try on and we would be back in America before they would be ready. Aso Palav securely shipped all our outfits and they arrived in great condition. I was pleasantly surprised that each item fit like a glove!! The only alteration I had to do was get the tops taken in as I lost weight between March (when the outfits arrived) and November.
