Whether you’re going on a long road trip, sitting in a train, or tucked into a seat on an airplane, you always need to feel comfy. Wearing tight clothes that squeeze your body won’t make for a comfy trip. Just like going out for a night on the town, you also need to plan your traveling outfit to perfection.
Yoga pants and sweatsuits aren’t just for the gym or lounging around at home. The spandex in athletic clothing allows your body to expand or compress depending on how it’s feeling. Wearing tight jeans will not make your stomach feel very good if you have to sit upright in them for 16 hours. Sweatsuits are another great option, as they are warm, and you can layer them depending on whether you are too cold or too hot.
A lot of people don’t think about wearing compression socks, but if you fly a lot then you may want to add these to your outfit. They’re easy to conceal under the pants, and they keep your ankles and feet from swelling during long flights. This also helps reduce the risk of blood clots, which some medications can make travelers more susceptible to.
You may not look like you’ve walked off of the pages of a fashion magazine, but you will be comfortable the entire flight.
