    I bought my dress in the US and had to bring it back to the UK. So I just checked it in with my luggage. No insurance, no tracking, nothing. The chances of anything happening to it were so minuscule, that I just didn’t bother with alternatives.

    I also had a large ballgown.  If folded, it would have fit in the overhead bin.  The flight attendants let me pre-board so they could put it in the closet.  Worst case scenario, it gets gate-checked but at least it’s not going through regular checked baggage.

    It did get pretty wrinkled, but I had planned on having it steamed when I got there anyway, so I wasn’t worried about that.

    I just wouldn’t take the chance of shipping it.  Do NOT just check it–then you have absolutely no recourse if it’s lost or damaged.
