Packing for a trip is almost a science. It requires predicting just the right amount of items you’ll need and wear. But the trickiest item to figure out is undoubtedly bras. Questions like how many bras to pack for travel and which styles to pack really requires planning out your outfits in advance. And nobody has time for that. To make your life as easy as possible, a good rule of thumb to always follow is to bring at least three different bra styles.

How Many Bras to Pack For Travel

We recommend three bras for a couple of reasons: it’s enough to get away without washing them during your vacation (because who wants to do laundry?) and it should provide enough variety across your wardrobe. All that, of course, depends on the duration of your trip, but we’d say three is a safe bet for a week-long getaway. If you’re staying any longer, throw in an extra bra or two, or consider giving them a wash at the very least.

The Best Bra For Travel

Whether you’re sitting through a long flight or drive, comfort is obviously the most important thing to consider. Do yourself a favor and opt for a bra that’s wireless, breathable, and soft. May we recommend our Seamless Lounge Bra. Designed for maximum comfort, this bra is tagless, seamless, and wireless yet supportive, thanks to its adjustable band. It’s made from breathable bamboo fabric to keep you cool and dry from the airport all the way to your final destination.

Which Bra Styles to Pack

Now that you’ve got your on-flight bra covered, let’s get into the various styles you should definitely throw in your suitcase. The key here is to bring one of every core style to make sure you have the proper bra for every outfit. But remember to also keep your itinerary in mind.

1. For Sightseeing: A T-Shirt Bra

If most of your plans look like museums and monuments, make it two t-shirt bras. Our 24/7™ Classic T-Shirt Bra features comfortable memory foam cups and offers an impeccable fit, making it the best everyday bra.

2. For Nights Out: A Strapless Bra

The great thing about strapless bras is that they open up a number of style options. Whether you’re wearing an off-the-shoulder top or a halter, a strapless will never distract from your look. Our 24/7™ Classic Strapless Bra even comes with two sets of straps, one clear and one tonal, that can be worn five ways.

3. For Dinner Plans: An Uplift Plunge Bra

Planning to sport a deep v-neckline or a wrap dress? An uplift plunge bra is your answer. The style of the bra prevents the tops of your cups from making an appearance while also offering your breasts a natural lift. In case you ever feel like going padless, our 24/7™ Classic Uplift Plunge Bra features removable inserts for those days exactly.
