A Sweet Solution ~ Cupcase
by Jené Luciani
I am constantly on the go and wondering if you have any tips for packing your bra? I heard that it is very bad to just squish them into your luggage with the rest of you clothing and since I wear padding, it does affect the shape. Wanted to see if you had any suggestions?. . . Lauren
SUCH a great question!! With many people escaping to warmer locales during the winter months, it’s a great time for a reminder on how to properly store your bras for travel. Bras are so delicate, it is very easy to squish the cups and bend the underwire, stretch out the straps and ruin them permanently! Caring for your bras the right way will really help them last longer. Less “stress” on your lingerie also means less stress on your wallet, too.
To avoid squishing them (and possibly ruining them,) place softer items like socks inside the cups to help them retain their shape, and nestle them into their own spot in your suitcase (preferably on the side, where there aren’t items on top of them). Or, you can pick up a case that’s specifically meant to keep your bras safe in your suitcase. I recently discovered theCupCase and took it on a trip to Turks n’ Caicos with me. It is amazing! My bras came out unscathed. I even tossed my bikinis in there too (the ones that have built-in cups) so they didn’t get squished as well. Plus, this product comes in bra sizes up to DD which means it’ll hold even larger busted bras (another issue with similar products in the past).
