If you are worried about where to store your valuables when you travel, one of our packing tips is to pack them in your bra. Travel bras are a unique and safe way to protect your most important things such as your passport, credit cards and money, (and even your jewellery). A travel bra with money pocket gives you a piece of mind when you are travelling especially if you are taking overnight trains or buses and want to protect your valuables. This article recommends the best travel bras, all tried and tested by female travellers.
Most of us have to take a bra with us on our trips, so why not take one that has more functions that just holding our shape? A travel bra with pockets for your valuables is ideal when you are travelling alone. You don't need to worry about your bag being snatched or purse being pickpocketed in European cities or Asian capitals such as Ho Chi Minh City, or Phnom Penh.
The sports bra is perfect for solo travellers. Instead of wearing a money belt, the travel bra is a good alternative as they are beautifully designed for comfort. The fabric is super soft and breathable with bindings and no wire or scratchy labels.
The original bra is the organic cotton and bamboo travel bra, which are also sustainable. But you don’t have to choose just one style as it comes in a variety of others such as the ultra-light which is similar to a shirt bra, a beach bra and also a sports style for our sporty girls about the globe.
There’s one for every occasion and the Comfort Handee Travel Bra (with a bamboo race-back) is also a plus size travel bra and sized all the way up to a XXXL with extra support so any of us can have one! This comfortable bra has also been designed for breast cancer survivors who wear a small prosthetic. They’ve thought of all of us.

Store your passport and cash in the drop-down mesh pouch which folds back up under the bra when not in use and can’t be felt or seen. They recommend keeping the day’s money in your purse then storing the rest of your money in your bra. There’s also a hidden mini-pocket for your jewellery, and a side mesh sleeve for your credit card or hotel room key with a guarantee that nothing will fall out.
The Travel Bra is so good that it’s even been awarded a coveted 2018 Gold Award in Fashion, awarded by the prestigious Italian A'Design Awards international panel of jurors.
And… they haven’t just stopped at bras either as they now have travel trunks for the men in our lives.
Why it's The Best Travel Bra
“I love it! The size is perfect for me and it is super comfortable to wear, the hidden pockets are really handy and the material is really soft. The pockets are perfectly sized for credit cards and documentation such as a passport and driving licence. The two tiny pockets on the front of the bra are absolutely perfect for jewellery! I tend to swell up when I fly so these pockets would be ideal for putting my rings in.”
“I have a habit of re-checking I’ve got everything I need when I travel…. this bra means I can very quickly pat myself down and know I have everything close to me. The design, even in the nude colour is really cool, I’m so pleased with it and can’t wait to put it to good use on my next trip!” – Emma Haskell, solo traveller from the UK.
Ideal Travel Underwear
Imagine that it is summer in Rome and you are walking all day, visiting the sites and sipping coffee in the piazza. You're wearing your Travel Bra because it is so comfortable and supports you all day long, with its wide adjustable straps, comfortable, breathable fabrics and no itchy labels rubbing against your skin. Or, you’re out sightseeing with more cash than you need for one day, and don't want to risk keeping it all in your purse. It’s the perfect choice for women travelling alone.
These really are the best bras for travel. The price is more than an average bra but if you deduct the cost of a money belt then it is good value. Bras start from £26.00.
