There’s nothing like an exciting getaway to infuse the holiday season with that extra special glow.
When it comes to travelling, the only thing I love more than soaking up everything a new place has to offer, is building my travel wardrobe. Just like a good road map (or an extra-friendly cabana boy), a versatile lingerie collection is your best friend for any journey. Whether you’re lucky enough to be gearing-up for a trip this holiday season, or simply dreaming of your next vacation, Now That’s Lingerie is your ultimate destination for enjoying a blissful trip in luxury.
Comfort and Joy
Packing the right collection of bras and panties for your trip is like a passport to bodily comfort. It’s always best to travel with at least 2 or 3 basic bras that you can rotate to avoid over-wearing one.
Pack at least one comfortable soft cup, seamless, non-underwired bra for ease and support during your journey and for trekking around, like this gem from Grenier Lingerie. With adjustable straps and stretchy microfiber fabric for freedom of movement, I can do all those seated yoga moves I’ve dreamed of while on a long flight! White is great, and a nude everyday bra is even better for travel since it’s more invisible than white and versatile for wearing under all colours.
Travelling with at least one convertible bra is like having multiple bras in one gorgeous and versatile package. Triumph’s 2640 Strapless Convertible Bra gives a sexy underwire boost with five looks including strapless, criss-cross back, halter, two straps and one shoulder strap. Talk about inspiration to bare your shoulders in that smokin’ hot, off-the-shoulder dress at your New Year’s vacation fete! Don’t forget to pack the straps along with a pair of Invisible Bra Straps for hooking into a convertible bra when you want the lift but don’t want straps to show.
If you’re like me and long for undies that won’t creep up your cheeks while en route and/or gallivanting around, the No Wedgies No Worries Collection by Warners Lingerie is a bit of heaven. These lightweight undies have special backside elasticity made to stay put for all-day comfort, and come in both high-cut and pretty hipster styles for various travel moods.
Along with everyday comfy panties, pack an assortment of lacy and flattering undies, including all-purpose black, white and again, versatile nude. Five to eight pairs in your suitcase is standard for most trips, and synthetic fabrics are conveniently quick-drying for hand-washing.
There’s a special sparkle to New Year’s Eve when celebrating on vacation! For underneath your hot New Year’s Eve frock, be sure to pack a good piece of shapewear for your ticket to a curve-controlling, seamless look. The Cool Sensation High-Waisted Long Leg Seamless Shaping Panty by Triumph Lingerie is made of a semi-sheer floral lace that’s both supportive and lightweight enough for partying in a tropical clime. Body Hush also offers various shapewear for a luxurious look and feel under your clothing. Be sure to check out our blog, The New Look of Shapewear, for your complete guide to shaping your every occasion.
A minimum of two or three camisoles in your suitcase will take you from breakfast to bedtime in style. Packing one in black, white and one bright colour will allow for optimal mix and match with your tops. Tuck a camisole with a built-in shelf into your suitcase, like this lovely one from the Metropolis collection by Elita Lingerie, as a lightweight bra-free option for those casual and relaxing vacation moments.
Headed toward a warm destination, or planning some time in a pool or hot tub? Don’t forget to pack a flattering swimsuit or bikini that makes you look and feel your most confident. Add a trendy cover-up for the beach or pool for those transitional moments, too.
Remember to give your carefully crafted lingerie collection a little tender loving packing care to keep everything fresh and fine:
- Stack one bra behind the other in your suitcase to retain the cup shape, rather than folding one bra cup into another.
- Conserve space when packing and help preserve bra cup shape by stuffing rolled up socks or underwear into cups.
- Pack your finest undergarments in large re-sealable zip-lock bags for protection against leakage from toiletries or snagging from zippers.
- Always, always keep your most cherished lingerie items close at hand in your carry-on bag. Lost luggage and delayed flights happen all too often!
