Plus, three more pieces to pack for the comfiest vacation ever.
Lingerie is often an overlooked category when it comes to packing for a trip. Six pairs of shoes? Sure. Five pairs of jeans in the exact same wash? Of course. Eight slinky camisoles? Yup. Nine gray sweaters? Err, if you have the room, why not? Corresponding bras and briefs to pair with all of this? Who has time to remember the things no one will see?
Well, the thing about lingerie is that it has the power to determine everything else you put on your body. That sheer vintage Marni skirt that’s practically begging to be worn in the French Riviera? That requires a particular underpinning to make it even remotely wearable.
Lingerie's power also manifests in its ability to provide all-day comfort, which is a requirement during long travel days. Though, many of us tend to treat it as an afterthought when packing.
So in an effort to help us all be a bit more thoughtful before our next trips, I enlisted the help of a lingerie expert — Lyn Lewis, the CEO of U.S.-based luxury lingerie powerhouse Journelle — to provide a checklist that’ll have us covered no matter where our travels may lead us or which complicated fashion pieces we insist on bringing along.
