How to Pack Rompers
Packing rompers are the perfect solution to switch from the beach to urban environments smoothly. If you’re going on a seven-day trip, pack four rompers. One with straps, short sleeves, long sleeves (full or three-quarter), and a jumpsuit-style would all do nicely!
Then, use slim packing cubes to save space in your suitcase and travel carry-on only.
We put together a five-part YouTube series showing the different methods to use packing cubes for travel. If you use this specific packing strategy, packing cubes can also compress your belongings. This is the secret to traveling carry-on only!
