When it comes to flying long-haul, I know that comfort is important. It’s also important to avoid anything constrictive since it can contribute to DVT.
But since I’m usually packing light and I don’t like to wear tight clothes anyway, my plane clothes generally consist of a pair of looser pants, a light top, a scarf/pashmina, and a light jacket. I ditch the belt when boarded and kick off my shoes and socks (if they feel too tight) while trying my absolute best to get comfortable. (I do try to wear flight socks on longer flights.)
I don’t have anything set aside that specifically counts as my “plane outfit”, but you know what… I might now.
Ciao Bella Travel, when they signed on as sponsors of BvtW for the next 3 months, let me pick out some key pieces of travel gear from their online shop. While searching, I noticed a lot of products in the Bamboo Body line, and a lot of rave reviews about how comfortable that clothing felt.
So I got some.
And I tried it on.
And I was an immediate convert.
Made from sustainable and organic fabrics including bamboo viscose and cotton, the clothing not only feels like Heaven and drapes beautifully, but it also helps you to do your part in supporting ethical fashion.
Did I mention it feels like Heaven? It’s like wearing silk sheets — the perfect addition to any flight and any travels. A big component of the clothing line is just being able to dress it up or down.
The sophisticated fabric in the Bamboo Body line means you can forget about suffocating waists and tight, constrictive creases in your pants on those long flights. Instead, you can kick back — whether it be in economy or business class — in absolute comfort.
So, long post short, I found my plane outfit (the awesome top and yoga pants) and I plan to use it on my upcoming trip to Hawaii — for the flight and beyond! Can’t look like a backpacker all the time, right?
What about you? Do you have a specific type of outfit you wear on planes, or do you just rock up and deal with what you have on already?
