Ever wondered what goes into women’s luggage? Thinking about how much time to allocate to the packing process? Just curious about bags in general?

British Airways recently surveyed 600 Australians to answer some of the age old questions of packing and the results were, well, not too surprising, the solutions however are:

Two-thirds of Australian women pack their bags more than once before travelling, as well as spend on average five hours contemplating what to pack; memories will after all be created with the holiday snaps so it pays to look good I guess.

Men, however, spend just three hours, on average, thinking that far ahead.

Combined, three-quarters of Australian travellers struggle to pack their entire wardrobe for their dream holiday, with 64 percent of people finding this experience stressful and frustrating. If the Aussies did manage to fit their life discreetly into their luggage, unfortunately half have been forced to leave some items behind due to baggage size and weight restrictions from strict airlines.

Tip: British Airways personal stylist Sophie Hart recommends bringing simple clothes, separates for maximising mix-and-matching and items that require little maintenance throughout the journey.
