How to Travel with your Hat: It really is a snap!
Anita McLachlan - 1st November 2009
Don't waste your hard earned cash buying a new sun hat every time you go away. And certainly don't sacrifice your beach holiday look by leaving your much loved wide brim at home. You can travel with a Hat. It really is a snap!
Keep Calm and Carry It On:
If you're driving, pop it on top of your luggage and secure it in a corner to stop it sliding around.
In Your Suitcase:
Most paper straw hats will reshape fairly easily too if they get a bit squished. Just dampen it a little, stuff the crown with non-marking paper or clothing/fabric and lay it on a flat surface. Any kinks in the brim flatten out with heavy books and let it rest overnight. The thicker the straw and tighter the weave, the stronger it will be and less resistant to changing shape. If it does, just keep in mind it will need a bit more encouraging to change it back!
Hope that helps. Happy hat packing girls!
