I’m putting mine in a Carry-on…mainly because I don’t want to spend the money on a special carrying case for it. I hadn’t thought of vacuum sealing it though..might have to try that.

Vacuum sealing will probably make it super wrinkly. Are you going to steam it when you get there?

@Dleigh2886:  I put mine in my carryon suitcase. A lot of people just put it in a garment bag and lay it across the top of the luggage in the overhead bin but I felt that was asking for trouble given the way peple just shove bags around and how it seems every second person has oversized carryons now days.

I did not vaccum seal it I just turned it inside out and put it inside a pillow case. A customs officer told me to turn it inside out becuase they don’t change their gloves and if they inspect your dress it could get dirty. I then just got it steamed at the location. But you could buy a travel steamer and do it yourself.
