The best time to travel is in the winter and fall. It can be enjoyable to take a break from your daily grind. However, traveling with a plus-sized body will give you a different perspective on your body. People can sometimes be rude or mean simply because you are larger than them. It’s completely ridiculous and shameful. Travel should not be a problem. Many plus-size women have horror stories about the treatment they received when traveling abroad or flying.

 True Plus Size Travel Tips

We are going to share some tips for traveling with plus-sized people. Plus-sized people shouldn’t have to travel in fear. It should be positive. These are some tips for a more positive and plus-sized travel experience.

  • Do Research

Although we might not think about this as often, it is important to know which airlines are accommodating of plus-sized passengers and which flights offer more space. You might want to be aware that some airlines may charge you extra for more than one seat. Seatguru can be used to view airline seat maps. You can also compare seat prices for different airlines. Cool, right?

There are many opinions about plus-sized people in different countries. Extra curvy may be accepted in some cultures. In others, it is not. Researching before you travel abroad can help ease your anxiety and make your vacation more enjoyable.

  • Select an Aisle Seat

A good option is to book an aisle seat when booking your flight. An aisle seat can provide more leg and arm room so you don’t feel cramped. While some people prefer to sit in a window seat, it can make it difficult to cross over people while you need to go to the bathroom. A aisle seat is more convenient.

  • Buy a Seatbelt Extender

Bring your own seat-belt extender if you are flying and feel anxious about asking for one. Preparing in advance can reduce stress and make your vacation more enjoyable. Amazon sells seat belt extenders for $17.

  • Comfortable light weight clothing is recommended

Your airport experience can be made more enjoyable by what you wear. Comfortable, lightweight, and stretchy pieces make it easier to glide into the seat. You also feel more relaxed while traveling.

We suggest going for a jersey style or cotton dress. Leggings and jeggings are best for pants. Jeans can be restrictive. We think it is especially important when you need to use a small bathroom. A dress is much easier to lift than a pair of jeans.

While you can wear whatever you like, it is much more enjoyable to be comfortable.

  • Move around

Long periods of sitting can cause stiffness and deep vein thrombosis. This is when blood clots form in your veins. It usually occurs in your legs. You can stretch your legs every two hours if the captain removes the seatbelt sign.

  • Be confident

Don’t be afraid of wearing a swimsuit if you are traveling to a location that has a beach. This is your vacation, and it’s the perfect time to feel confident. You don’t have to be ashamed by wearing a bikini in a two-piece.

What about that one-piece swimsuit you have been wanting to buy? Don’t let other people’s negativity affect your feelings about your body. You can choose what you wear to vacation. It doesn’t matter what others say, as long as you are comfortable. You can walk around in your bathing suit while keeping your head high.

Remember, vacations are meant to relieve stress and provide a break from everyday stress. Your vacation break can be the most memorable!
