5 Tips for Vacation Garment Packing

Home Improvement
Right after standing in long lines at the airport, packing may just be the least favorite part of taking a vacation. You’ve spent all that time planning the perfect vacation wardrobe only to discover when you pull that dress or suit out of the suitcase that it is full of wrinkles. Don’t spend your vacation ironing clothes. Instead, learn a few garment packing tips for a smoother vacation.

Pack Light

Stop the what-if game. You know the game. It goes a little something like this. “What if I need a jacket? It’s going to be in the 90s the whole time, but what if the forecast is wrong?” When you pack for four seasons and then some, chances are that you’re going to have a suitcase with little room to spare. Jam-packed suitcases only leave room for wrinkles. Pack light and you’ll have fewer wrinkles on your trip.

Roll Your Clothes

One of the best ways to prevent wrinkles is to roll your clothing as much as possible. Why roll instead of fold? Rolling saves space so you can get more clothes in your bag without accidentally wrinkling them. Rolling works best for hardier clothing items like jeans, shorts, and t-shirts, but can also be used for clothing made of linen and silk, too.

Purchase a Garment Bag

If you’re traveling with nice evening attire, you may want to invest a small amount of money into buying a garment bag. Garment bags help you avoid wrinkles because you're hanging the clothing. Opt for a garment bag made of sturdy material such as nylon. Do not use the plastic bags from the dry cleaners. These bags do not provide your clothes the protection they need, especially if you're flying.

Arrange Your Clothing Like a Puzzle

Are you in the habit of adding clothes to your suitcase one by one as you pack? If so, consider a different approach. Consider the jigsaw approach. Here’s how it works.

Lay your suitcase out on the bed, the floor, or a table. Whatever is most comfortable for you works best.

Fold any items that will be packed in this manner and place them down the center of the suitcase.

Place your toiletries bag at what will be the bottom of the suitcase or bag when you stand it upright. You want the heaviest items to be at the bottom so they don’t crush or wrinkle clothing.

Place all rolled clothes around the folded clothes.

Place shoes in the spots between the folded and stacked clothes. Don’t worry about keeping pairs together. For this packing method, it’s better if the shoes are inserted with just a single shoe in one space. Put lingerie in mesh bags and insert in remaining spaces, too, just like you did with the shoes.

Packing for Multiple Stops

If you’re taking a road trip and will be staying overnight at various places, consider packing a suitcase for each stop with the essential clothing you’ll need. Or, if you don’t have the room for several different bags, purchase large plastic bags and fold or roll (as appropriate) the clothing you need for that stop and place it in the bag. Layer the bags in your suitcase according to the order of your stops. Doing this will help you avoid a messy suitcase and wrinkly garments. In a case like this, keeping toiletries and shoes in separate bags will help you avoid a packing mess too.

Don’t let traveling leave you looking and feeling flustered. With a little planning and careful packing, you’ll be able to travel in style when you follow these garment packing tips.
