[008] Ask HPL: How Do I Pack Bras When I Travel?

The HPL Podcast, Episode 8: How Do I Pack Bras When I Travel?

Bras were just not made for packing! Seriously…

This week’s Ask HPL question comes from Tahni Hresko, of Wall of Wanderlust, who is curious about the best way to pack bras so they don’t take up as much space, and don’t get crushed in transit. To answer this Q, I discuss a number of points from how many bras to pack to the gear that can help keep it safe.

In This Episode, We Discuss:

  • Finding your perfect number of bras to pack when traveling.
  • The best type of bra for travel.
  • How to pack hard shell bras.
  • Gear that can protect your bra when packed up in your luggage.

I run the show at Her Packing List and love packing ultralight. In fact, I once traveled for 3 entire weeks with just the contents of a well-packed 12L handbag. When I'm not obsessing over luggage weight, I'm planning adventures or just snuggling with my pet rabbit, Sherlock Bunz.
