Well ladies, you know that I am having my dress made by my aunt. As it's not finished yet, I can't post a pic, but I did just create a thread about my dress in progress. So to see pics, check them out here: Enjoy!
So I have something else that I've been thinking about lately. Here's my problem. We are going to Jamaica for 2 weeks (that's not the problem lol) and I'm having a hard time figuring out what to bring. As you know, plus-size clothes is bigger than regular clothes therefore not as much will fit in the suitcase. Any ideas on how to take advantage of bringing the most clothes? I'm trying to find clothes in lighter material, so it won't add to the weight. I have a couple of skorts, but seeing as they are double the material, they weight alot more. Thoughts anyone??

I leave the jeans and jean shorts at home as they take up alot of room and are too heavy for the weather anyway.
Rolling your clothes tightly or using those new packing cubes and folders from Eagle Creek seems to improve my packing space. When I went to Europe last year, they really helped me be able to bring everything I wanted to.

I buy them when they go into the clearance bins at REI.

i also had some "space bags" which are supposed to get all the air out of your clothes and make them take up half the space. not sure how much i think they helped, but they were ideal for taking home the dirty or wet clothes.
i had packed a ton of capris and tops and most of it came home unworn. i also packed several lingerie items and only bothered wearing it on our wedding night (despite the fact that we skipped the wedding-nite-nookie, lol) ... i just felt like i *should* be wearing it, KWIM? waste of luggage space!

JoLo, I haven't tried spanxs yet. Is there a problem with them rolling up/down or anything like that?
