After being a travel reporter for years, you learn the best items to pack in that very small carry-on that are not only necessary but also offer you that little piece of comfort that one needs after a long day. With so much to choose from, I am happy to offer a no-nonsense travel must haves for women list. Each are affordable, long lasting and just perfect for the journey you have ahead of you.

One of the biggest concerns on a long plane ride or even when you have an assignment that can go over that eight hour mark, is a good and comfortable bra. You want one that hugs your curves, gives you the lift you desire and can go the long haul! The Coobie Seamless Bra gives you this an more. The Scoopneck is available in neutrals and fun colors. One size fits almost every body. Soft & Stretchy, and fits sizes 32A to 36D. No kidding, they really do fit that size range perfectly including my plumper one.
What’s a Coobie Seamless Bra?
It’s simply the most amazing bra you’ll ever buy. Ultra comfortable, supportive, and inexpensive. It’s the perfect combination. The Coobie Bra provides shape and support and can be worn in place of a camisole or tank top. The Coobie Bra fits almost every body!
A handful of tank tops that you can easily mix and match with different bottoms. From skirts to jeans, a tank top is a staple when packing. For colder climates, you can layer with a sweater or cardigan. For warmer areas, wear bare and style it up with a flashy necklace. My favorite is the GAP scoop neck tank that is a super soft cotton knit and machine washable. They fold up small and dry fast!
A good hanging toiletry bag filled with refillable travel bottles, moisturizer, razor, pain reliever, band-aids, antibiotic ointment, feminine supplies, deodorant, tweezers, sunscreen, nail clippers and makeup basics (mascara, blush and lip gloss). Everything you need to get ready in the morning, stay fresh and clean-up before bedtime.
Cellphone charger (in fact, pack two because something always seems to go wrong with the first). Make sure you have both a wall block, car adapter and two cords before you head out on your adventure. For extra prep, you should also consider bringing along a full charged power block for long lasting battery fun. I cannot tell you how many times my phone showed the dreaded low battery symbol after taking hundreds of photos while on vacation.
