We’re all guilty of over packing while travelling at some point of time in our lives. Well, what can I say, except that it’s tough packing light. To make it easier for you, here is a post on what I think might be the right number of bras to pack while travelling. Yes, that’s definitely going to give you some extra space in your suitcase. Here are few factors you should consider:

Let’s start off with “How many times should you wear 1 bra?”

Contrary to popular belief, it’s perfectly alright to wear a bra 2-3 times before washing it. That said, an obvious factor to consider will be the weather. If you’re travelling in the summer or to a hot and humid destination, wearing it more than once without washing isn’t something we’d want to do.

Next question to be answered is “ What are the outfits you’re packing?”

Well, this one is an easy one. Make sure you pack bras that can be worn under most of the outfits you are carrying. Pack styles(T-shirt bras and convertible bras are the best)  and colours (nudes are a must) that can easily be worn under multiple outfits.

Last but certainly not the least is “What are the type of activities you plan on doing?”

If you’re planning some heavy impact activities as opposed to just sightseeing, it might be a good idea to pack a sports bra or 2. Lots of such activities also means you may have to pack a couple of extra bras since you’ll have to wash them often. A sports bra is always good to have as a backup in case some unprecedented “bumpy” rides or a workout session make its way to your trip 🙂

That’s about it, ladies. Ideally you should pack 3-4 bras while travelling which should allow you enough time to wash and reuse the bras without any hassle. Hope this is of some help! Let me know if you have any more such tips to add on to this. Bon voyage!
