I’m frequently listening and reading tips on packing for a trip and it never fails that I hear the recommendation to bring less underwear. And I always wonder, what the heck is wrong with me bringing a week or two worth of underwear????
Yes, if you’re trying to squeeze into a carryon for more than a few days, yes, I could see this as a potential strategy. But, under normal conditions, I have enough room for as many pairs of underwear as I want to bring.
Seriously… If push came to shove, I can wear a shirt more than once between washes, pants, etc. But underwear? Things have to be REALLY bad for me to wear dirty underwear. Which means, I need to be able to go longer with my underwear.
But then it occurred to me, I’m usually hearing this from men. Granted, this is a bit of a generalization, but men typically have lower standards of hygiene and there underwear does take up more room than most woman’s underwear. So I can almost see where they are coming from. It also means, I can bring as much underwear as makes me happy, so stop counting how many pairs of underwear I take!
