Forever21 Global Store EMS Shipping to Philippines

1

As a plus size person, shopping is hard although I admit it has gotten easier during the past few years. It's still somewhat hard to find clothes that aren't matronly or too professional. T-shirts and shorts compromise 95% of my wardrobe, and it's not easy looking for cute, casual clothes locally.

Forever21 has a local store but the price difference from the online store is a lot (considering their online store frequently does sales). I normally use a forwarder but sometime back, Forever21 launched a global online store so customers from can have the items shipped to them directly.

On a side note, if anyone out there wants to lecture me about the harmful impact of fast fashion just gtfo. Poor people also deserve things and it's not realistic to get just one or two fair priced quality item considering we all need to wear clothes everyday (and no matter how high quality an item is, it will wear out if you use it day in and out). 

Anyway, the selection on the global store is less than the US one, but I still wanted to give it a try since I would save some money on shipping (shipping is free for orders over $100 plus I would get the items much faster). That is until I learned that the only shipping method available is EMS, which I avoid because there's a chance that I'll have to pick up the items at the main office in Pasay. Fast forward to many months later, my clothes are either too beat up or too big (I actually lost a little weight lmao), and with my limited budget and a big sale going on, I decided to go ahead.

Delays often happen in the mail, but you can look at the table below to estimate when your EMS parcel will arrive

I'm in Zone 2, and true enough my order arrived on Wednesday! I received my order in less than 10 working days




Here is the timeline:
23rd March - Placed the order
26th March - Got an email that the says my order was shipped
29th March - According to the tracking, it departed from Incheon and arrived some hours later at Manila
31st March - The item arrived at the inward office of exchange
4th April - The parcel was delivered to me
