How to pack bras for travel

Fashion Tips By Esther Muchene

At one point in your life an opportunity to travel for either business or leisure will present itself. Visiting new locations is an exciting experience that we all enjoy. Before going for any trip, you have to figure out what you’ll wear for the days you are away and start packing in preparation.

For women, we generally need to have extra space in our bags for undergarments especially our bras. When packing items that easily fold such as panties, figuring out where to pack them is relatively easy. For bras however, it’s a bit more complicated. Some are made of wires and other materials that could be damaged if not handled properly.

Before you consider tossing them away altogether, we have some great tips on how to store them during travel.

i. Tuck one cup into the other

This is one of the best ways to pack bras that are weird and structured. In order to do it the right way, twist the bra at the centre so that one cup is able to comfortably collapse into the other. This is more effective in preserving your bras rather than squeezing one cup into the other directly. Once you tuck them cup to cup, you can stack the bras together and place them properly in the suitcase.

ii. Get some bra cases

Bra cases are a brilliant invention that preserve your bras. The cases have been designed in the shape of a bra so they are able to fit easily. You can find them online or at lingerie shops where you will have a variety to pick from. The only downside to this is that they take some extra space in your luggage. If you don’t mind that, always take one case with you when travelling.

iii. Use support underneath the cups

When travelling with wired bras, ensure that you add some extra support underneath the cups using socks or any other preferred filler. This is effective because it prevents the sponge from flattening or the wires from twisting. It can be very annoying to find that your bras have been pressed and disfigured when you arrive at your destination. Avoid this by stuffing the cups as you pack.

iv. Separate them from other items

Bras are very fragile and delicate items. When travelling, your luggage can be searched and handled by different people at security check points. If you let your bras lay in the open, they can get contaminated and you may end up getting infections. Place them in a separate compartment in your suitcase or place them in a zip lock back to prevent them from being exposed. If you wish, store them along with your other intimates in order to preserve them.

v. Roll them up

For bras that are not wired, it’s best to roll them up well and place them in one corner. This will prevent them from getting creased or damaged by other items in your luggage. Avoid scattering the non-wired ones randomly in your luggage. This will likely damage them and other items it will into contact with.
