Evarts' comment about Factory Outlet Stores (F.O.S) in Bangkok, I went online looking. No F.O.S like the ones in Malaysia was found but I did uncover some great finds on real factory outlets. If you are planning on going to Bangkok for shopping, these are definitely the factory outlets to check out.
1 - Crazy Steps Outlet for Shoes
2250 Petchburi Road, (just past Petchburi Soi 40), BTS: Huai Khwang. Open every day from 10am until 7pm.
What's there: Wide range of fashionable men and women’s shoes and accessories. The majority of items are sold at 50–70 percent off the retail price and new stock is available with an immediate 30 percent off store prices.
2 - X Sizes Outlet for Underwear
Sukhumvit 24, Bangkok 10110 (opposite Grandeville House). Open every day from 9.30am until 7pm.
What's there: Good selection of bras and panties in larger sizes, which can come in handy for larger breasted women trying to find a big cup size in the A-dominated markets of Bangkok or those with a little extra in the rear. The majority of bras are padded but there are a few unpadded designs too. Bras are available from 270 baht and panties from 49 baht. Bras can be tried on in one of two good-sized gothic dressing rooms with flattering lights and a mirror.
