Preparing for a trip involves more than just choosing the right outfits and packing necessities. Read on for tips on how to pack your favourite lingerie and swimwear – and also what to look for in a great travel bra…

When it comes to delicate items like bras and swimwear, proper packing is essential to ensure they arrive at your destination in great, ready-to-wear condition. Here’s how:

Separate and Protect: Keep your delicate bras and swimwear separate from other clothing items. Use individual lingerie bags or wrap them in tissue paper to prevent friction and avoid potential damage.

Use a Travel Organizer: Invest in specialized bra case or travel organizer designed to protect and organize your bras during transit. These handy accessories keep the cups in shape and prevent straps from getting tangled.

Stack Strategically: When packing bras, stack them neatly, one cup inside the other, to retain their shape and maximize space efficiency. For padded bras, avoid folding them in half to prevent creasing.

Roll, Don’t Fold: To save space and prevent creases in your swimwear, roll each piece individually. Rolling not only helps with space optimization but also minimizes the chances of fabric damage or wrinkling.

By following these simple tips, you’ll be able to enjoy your trip with peace of mind, knowing that your bras and swimwear are well-protected and ready for every occasion.

How to choose the perfect travel bra

When it comes to choosing the perfect travel bra, comfort and versatility are key. Opt for a bra made from soft, breathable materials that offer ample support without sacrificing on comfort. Look for features like adjustable straps and a hook-and-eye closure to ensure a customizable fit. Consider a seamless or wire-free design to prevent discomfort during long journeys. If you have to pack light, we recommend packing a dark-coloured bra, a nude t-shirt bra and a strapless bra. And if your travels are going to include some kind of exercise, then don’t forget your sports bra. Lastly, prioritize lightweight and quick-drying options that can be washed and dried easily while on the go.

Bon Voyage!
