Here are 6 easy steps I used to pack my sun hat when I was traveling to Miami this 4th of July weekend. I hope you find it helpful and be sure to let me know what you think! =)
Step 1: Start with an empty suitcase.
Step 2: Take your hat and stuff the inside of the crown with small-sized articles of clothing. I used a few bathing-suits but clean underwear and socks could work as well! Make sure they’re clean!! 😉
Step 3: Place the hat flat on bottom of your luggage–ensuring that there’s enough stuffing so the crown of the hat doesn’t wrinkle or form dimples.
Step 4: Start folding and placing the other contents of your suitcase around hat.
Step 5: Be sure to pack around the crown, saving the heaviest items for last—placing them around the edges of the luggage and away from the center.
Step 6: Continue packing until full. Tip: I’d try to leave my light shirts and/or extra underwear/swimwear for the top to prevent causing too much weight on the top of your hat.
When I arrived in Miami I was happy to find my hat unwrinkled and in mint condition. Although I didn’t wear it much while there, I’m still happy it kept its shape. There’s always my next next vacation!
I hope you enjoyed & thanks for stopping by!
Happy Hair Journey!
