Things You Need To Know Before Buying A Women’s Suitcase
Suitcases might not have a huge variety in form and function, but they come in various designs, features, budgets and sizes. Below we have listed different types of suitcases and answered some questions you may have regarding them.
What are the different types of women’s suitcases?
- Hard suitcases: Hard suitcases have a rigid exterior that makes them less vulnerable to damage during travel. They are trending right now, thanks to the variety of colours and designs they come in.
- Soft suitcases: These are made of fabric and have a flexible exterior. They offer more flexibility for packing compared to their hard exterior counterparts. You can also pack them a tad bit beyond capacity.
- Carry-on suitcases: These are often ideal if you are travelling for a couple of days. Carry-ons are usually soft or semi-soft and almost always have wheels. However, you need to be careful during air travel, because an overstuffed carry-on bag can be too large for the airlines' overhead storage.
- Duffel suitcases: Duffel suitcases come in a variety of sizes. They usually don't come with wheels and tend to have a soft exterior. A small duffel bag can also be used as carry-on luggage.
Is a four-wheel suitcase better than a two-wheel suitcase?
Four-wheel suitcases are better balance compared to two-wheel suitcases. If the weight is not properly distributed within the suitcase, a two-wheel case can tip over leaving you stranded at the airport. However, four-wheel suitcases do not have this problem. They require less effort to carry along and don't need to be dragged.
Which size suitcase should you buy?
Ideally, a travel suitcase should measure 22” x 9” x 14” or less so that it can easily fit into the overhead compartments on most planes.
What size suitcase do I need for a week?
For a one week trip, choose a 24-25″ (61-63cm) suitcase. It should be enough to pack your clothes and other essential items for a week.
Does rolling your clothes make your suitcase lighter?
Rolling your clothes does not make your suitcase lighter. However it does compress your clothes, which in turn saves room in your luggage that can be occupied by other useful stuff. In this way, by rolling your clothes, you will also be able to take a smaller, much lighter suitcase, over a bigger, heavier one.
Before you start packing, it is necessary that you first think about the suitcase you will need to store all your items. The duration of your trip can help you determine the type and size of suitcase you will need.
Buy a women's suitcase that offers convenience in all matters and is easy to carry along. It should have proper storage with various pockets to segregate your travel essentials. Remember, it should also make you look stylish and chic because your suitcase is not just a suitcase; it is also a style statement.
