I flew halfway across the country with mine. Big ass poofy ball gown. Took it in a garment bag, they didn’t count it as a carry on. On the way to the destination, I insisted they scan it manually and not put it through the xray machine. They had to unzip it and wipe all the layers, but there was no problem in doing it. On the plane (We flew Southwest) they just stuck it in an overhead bin all by itself in the back.

On the way back home, it went through the xray just fine. Overhead bin. Got home safe and sound.

No muss, no fuss.
