Sharing buttons:


ten things you should never ever wear on

a plane whether you're choosing an

outfit for a short or a long distance

flight it's important that you feel

comfortable while staying out of trouble

at the same time we've collected ten

tips from flight attendants and fellow

travelers about things not to wear on

the plane watch it to the end to figure

out which clothes can bring your journey

to a halt right at the planes door 10

perfume while you're on your journey you

will be in a small and densely packed

space avoid heavy perfumes for the sake

of your fellow passengers a prevailing

number of people find scented products

on others irritating and there also

could be people with allergies in asthma

on the flight so perfect seat mates for

them are those who smell like nothing

another problem here is that all the

smells intensify on a plane due to the

stale air constantly being recycled

within the cabin it's better to wear

clean clothes and stay clear of perfume

remember your preferences may

dramatically differ from those of your

neighbor 9 tight clothes avoid tight

clothing especially when your flight is

longer than 4 hours

people on a long-distance flight are at

risk of developing DVT deep vein

thrombosis DVT is a blood clot that

forms in a deep vein usually in the leg

to prevent it we're special compression

socks in loose comfortable clothes also

be sure to walk around whenever you can

American Airlines flight attendant

Andrea Fishbach explains that apart from

the risk of thrombosis you can also

suffer from swelling cramping and

bloating especially if your clothes are

constricting you can imagine what kind

of discomfort that can cause she admits

that leather pants and tight jeans might

look cute but it's much better to pick

something with an elastic waist and

breathable material eight complicated

items airplane bathrooms are tiny if

you're wearing a jumpsuit you'll have a

hard time trying to take it off instead

wear something that's not likely to

cause difficulties in this small space

clothes with a lot of buttons and

zippers won't make your flight

experience the most comfortable one

imagine the psychological pressure you

may experience while you're busy doing

up all your never-ending buttons and

zippers while an impatient line of

people is waiting outside seven clothes

or jewelry containing metal it's no

surprise that shoes with large metal

embellishments or metallic jewelry can

slow you down when going through airport


what is unexpected is that some

sparkling sweaters can have metallic

threads woven into them while you can

easily slip off your shoes it may be

getting out of the sweater might be a

bit more challenging the best thing to

do is to go for natural materials and

take off any jewelry even gold which

seems safe enough to wear until you pass

completely through security screening

one flight attendant recalls a case when

she was rushing for a flight but her

cartier love bracelet somehow set off

one of the machines she wasn't the least

bit amused as she was trying to unscrew

it with her nail six summer clothes even

when you're flying to a warm destination

and are tempted to pick a summer outfit

for your flight don't forget that the

temperature in the plane can be

surprisingly cold having on several

layers of clothes is essential for a

comfortable journey you won't believe

the craziest ways people dress for their

flights flight attendants have witness

sports bras and crop tops with no jacket

to cover them booty shorts and even

bathing suits you don't need to be a

psychic to predict that shortly after

takeoff these passengers are the first

to demand blankets

unfortunately not all flights provide

such a service it makes sense to have

different layers of clothes this way you

can always control how warmly you're

dressed what it's more if your luggage

is lost we all know that the chances of

this happening aren't quite high you

will always have a spare change of

clothes 5 contact lenses

in an aircraft the average humidity can

get as low as 10 to 20 percent and in

extreme cases it can drop down to 1% for

comparison the Sahara Desert averages

from 20 to 25 percent humidity can you

imagine how fast it will dry out your

contact and lead to irritation in your

eyes if you have a long flight it's

recommended that you take your lenses

out especially if you plan on sleeping

during your flight for high-heels

however alluring you may find the

airport style of your favorite

celebrities strutting around in

stilettos it may in fact cause more harm

than good

airport security will ask you to remove

your shoes not only can heels

potentially be used to store prohibited

items but they also contain an internal

metal construction that will definitely

set off the alarm

nobody would enjoy standing barefoot on

the airport floor moreover your feet

might swell during the flight so tight

shoes should be avoided and what if

you're just a tiny bit late and running

for the gate imagine your struggle to do

it effectively can't safely in high


along with heels flight attendants urge

you to say no to backless sandals as

well there are very serious safety

reasons for such a request the thing is

both these types of footwear make it

extremely difficult to evacuate the

aircraft quickly regarding high heels

you would have to leave them behind

anyway if inflatable slides were to be

used during an emergency evacuation the

heels can damage the slide so off they

go now ask yourself do you really fancy

running away from the airplane barefoot

so opt for comfort wear sneakers or

shoes with a back three t-shirts with

offensive text

you won't believe this but there have

been people prohibited from boarding a

plane because of the way they were

dressed the reason can vary too much

cleavage a low-cut dress saggy pants and

offensive t-shirt bare feet or even

leggings while flying on an Airlines

employee Pat for example Southwest

Airlines cabin crew wouldn't let Laurie

Heasley on board because of the

politically offensive text of her

t-shirt it didn't happen that long ago

2005 another case involving the same

airline dates back to two thousand seven

passenger Kyla abhart was accused of

wearing clothes deemed inappropriate for

this family airline does this mean there

are airlines just for 18 and over her

miniskirt and tight blouse didn't pass

the test

however she saved her place on the

flight by tugging her skirt down a bit

and pulling her top up this way

covering up more of her revealed skin

well some of these decisions are


try to stay reasonable than choosing

your outfit a perfect question to ask

yourself is would somebody wear this to

visit their grandparents too itchy

fabrics before putting on something

fancy for your flight you need to

consider the fabric very carefully first

and foremost avoid itchy and scratchy

clothes they will definitely become a

bother on the flight the thing is hot

and cold temperature fluctuations on a

plane make your skin very sensitive for

this reason fabrics like wool or even

lace will lead to skin irritation even

more so than I usually do

they might become especially annoying if

you're sitting in a seat without much

leg room or space to move around one

baggy clothes so having studied all the

tips such as say no to tight clothes no

miniskirts or revealing tops you look in

your closet comfort nothing typed no

high heels hmm bingo my oversized

sweater and baggy jeans sorry but that

too may not be the best choice

sounds like a stereotype but people

wearing such clothing tend to work

suspicious Tracy Edwards who works for

triple-a travel sales says that if you

want to pass through security quickly

you should avoid loose-fitting clothes

there is a 100 percent chance that you

lose the screening because you look like

you're hiding something under your huge

hoodie be ready for the requested trip

so the things to remember when you dress

for a journey by plane

opt for comfort and remember you can

totally make comfort look stylish for

example a maxi dress paired with a denim

jacket will look very fashionable while

simultaneously providing all the comfort

you need check the airline's dress code

such a policy can be found on their

website if your dream isn't to become

famous for being kicked off a plane

because of your leggings study it

carefully by the way that last example

with the leggings is based on a real

story it happened to two teenage girls

flying with United Airlines they miss

their flight since their leggings fail

to comply with a dress code of the


and now the bonus we have promised even

if you're a star and follow all the

rules you can still be stopped by

security and thoroughly searched this is
