Believe in An Unbelievable Bra
There is nothing worse than wearing an uncomfortable bra unless it's wearing an uncomfortable bra on vacation. Tight bands, slipping shoulder straps, gaping cups are all issues I've faced in the past. That's until I found a solution to all my brablems. "How?" you ask.
I invested in a comfortable new bra from ThirdLove. And let me tell you, there's nothing like a new bra to make a girl feel special. Having comfortable support is especially important when you're on the road, particularly if you're going to be wearing the same bra(s) day in and day out.
A Better Backpack
Now, adventurous living does not require a backpack, but a backpack can be a helpful way to carry your gear when traveling. And having a go-to backpack that's comfortable makes life easier.
While having comfortable travel gear is a priority for me, so is having safe gear. And there is no other brand that I would trust more than PacSafe.
Having a PacSafe backpack means you don't have to worry about aching back or petty theft when you're on the go. There's nothing better than finding safety and quality in the same product.
Care to Wear Comfortable Shoes
Getting to know a new city requires you to hit the streets in search of authentic sights and sounds. And long days of roaming the streets means you'll need proper footwear.
Comfortable shoes can go a long way in making your good trip great! Don't be that woman who sacrifices her soles for style.
Find Flexible Fabrics and Cuts
Wearing comfortable clothing is essential for a relaxed, carefree vacation. And the best way to ensure your comfort is to invest in fabrics that breathe and cuts that give.
Cotton, gauze, and linen are my go-to fabrics for vacation wear. And flowing, loose cuts mean I don't have to worry about feeling uncomfortable all day (or night) long. My favorite brands for affordable vacation wear are Old Navy and Gap.
One way to save space in your luggage is to pack clothing that can be worn in a variety of settings. Make sure to bring pieces that you can mix and match, dress up or down, with breathable fabrics.
No More Chaffing Thighs
Attention all girls with junk in the trunk! I've found the ultimate piece of comfortable travel gear!
Curvy girls like me have a big problem that we don't like to talk about: thigh chaffing. Dresses are cute, but they can be the worst enemy of curvy gals in warm weather. Well, I've found a solution that has forever changed my vacation style.
Well, I've found a solution that has forever changed my vacation style: Jockey Slip Shorts! Not only do I wear my Slip Shorts on vacation, but they've also now become my best friend year round. Never again will I wear a dress without my Slip Shorts underneath.
Accessories Are Everything
Saving space in your luggage is essential for anyone looking to shop while on vacation. That's one reason I choose to wear solid colored clothing that I can mix-and-match. Remember, solid styles can be dressed up with colorful accessories.
Sure, solid colors can be a snooze-fest, but they can easily be dressed up with colorful accessories. I always carry a bright scarf or two, along with a collection of jewelry that I can use to snazz up any outfit.
Even better, you can shop for fun accessories while on vacation that will forever remind you of your adventures. My jewelry and scarf collection gets bigger every time I travel.
Dare to Wear Cotton Underwear
Ladies, do I need to expand on the reasons why you should wear cotton underwear, especially on vacation? Well, if you insist.
Not only is cotton breathable, but it's also absorbent. And while we don't like to think about (or much less talk about) sweating down there, it's a fact that can't be denied.
When you're out walking around a fun new city, the last thing you want to think about is an odor, irritation, or unpleasant bacteria. With clean cotton undies, you don't have to worry! For a good deal on affordable cotton panties, I trust the Gap.
Have Handkerchiefs Handy
Spending the day walking through the streets of a dusty, hot European town can be hot and sweaty work. And what happens when your face and neck sweat? You wipe away the sweat with your hands or your clothing, which can be terrible for your skin, leading to breakouts and irritation.
Keep your hands off your face with the help of a nice handkerchief. These plain white handkerchiefs from Brooks Brothers were life savers during my trip to Italy in August. Sure, these are made for men, but who cares? Absorbent cotton hankies are a girl's best friend, too!
Comfortable Camera Straps Make a Difference
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Walking around all day with a heavy DSLR around your neck it uncomfortable. But for budding photographers like me, we wouldn't have it any other way.
Fortunately, my friends at PacSafe have come up with a piece of comfortable travel gear that protects both your neck and your camera. Ladies, allow me to introduce the PacSafe Carrysafe Camera Strap.
This strap has made a world of difference in my ability to carry my heavy DSLR all day. The soft, cushioned neck guard rests comfortably on my neck, alleviating some of the load while also protecting my camera from slashers.
Spend Sunny Days under a Protective Hat
One of the best ways to beat the heat of sunny summer days is to wear a hat. But not all hats are created equal.
Having a hat that can protect you from harmful rays while making a stylish statement is what I like to call having your cake and eating it, too! And Sunday Afternoon Hats are just that!
Each of their hats is constructed with revolutionary materials that help to block UV rays. Most of their hats are made of breathable materials and have moisture-wicking interior sweatbands.
Their revolutionary sun fabrics block over 90% UV rays. Best of all, many of their styles pack flat for travel!
