A few weeks ago Life Size Radio’s Beauty Contributor, Joy Tribble shared some great tips on packing your clothing if you were planning to attend Full Figured Fashion Week™. FFF Week is over, but Joy’s tips for the plus size travelista still apply.
Step 1. Remember this order of operations: Shirts on the bottom, then dresses, then pants.
Step 2. Stack tops, unfolded, by placing wrinkle-prone tops toward the bottom of a pile and less easily wrinkled ones toward the top.
Step 3. Fold the sleeves in toward the shirts’ torsos.
Step 4. Fold the shirts in half from the bottom. You now have a rectangular bundle of shirts; place it in your suitcase.
Step 5. Drape long dresses in the suitcase so that the ends hang over the sides.
Step 6. Place pants and skirts on a flat surface; fold each in half lengthwise.
Step 7. Stack pants and skirts on top of one another, with easily wrinkled ones on the bottom and sturdier ones, such as jeans, on top. Fold the stack over, so that its length is halved.
Step 8. Place your stack of pants and skirts on top of the dresses, and then fold the ends of the dresses over the pants and skirts.
Step 1. Stuff socks in shoes. Pack underies in mesh laundry bags or side pockets to save space.
Step 2. Arrange each pair of shoes so that the heel of one aligns with the toe of the other.
Step 3. Wrap pairs of shoes in separate plastic bags, and place them along the border of your suitcase.
Step 4. Protect clothes from leaks by placing toiletries in a plastic bag.
Step 5. Pack essential toiletries in a carry-on bag. Include your toothbrush, toothpaste, makeup, medication and other important items.
Remember Ladies, challenge yourselves and pack everything you need in one suitcase…
Give it a try…You can do it!
