Plus Size Packing: 2 Months in Europe

Plus Size Packing: 2 Months in Europe

Yes! The day has finally come. I’ve been planning for over 6 months and I’m finally here…..well, sitting in the JFK airport, currently….but in about 9 hours I will be on European soil, landing for a beautiful morning in Paris, France. 

Much like my Cancun, Mexico packing post, I’m going to share with you what I’ve packed for this 2 month trip around Europe as a plus sized traveler. I really did my research for this trip. It holds the record for my longest trip as well as my first solo trip. Plus Size Packing

I’ve made mistakes when I packed for previous trips. Common newb mistakes like packing too much, bringing the wrong bag, and taking unnecessary luxury items. Plus Size Packing

For this trip, I focused on finding the right clothes to keep me comfortable, cool, and confident. I also packed far less toiletries and “stuff,” and took the time to address my needs as a plus size traveler in the summer. Plus Size Packing

Eg.leggings all day-err day, light layers, & clothes that won’t stretch out.

If you’re a plus size traveler (or not, all are welcome!) feel free to use this post as a guide for your next trip. You’ll also be glad to know I’ll soon be posting with my first “look-book” of sorts for beachy/hot weather outfits that cover problem areas and look SUPA CAYUTE.

Enjoy! Plus Size Packing
