About Dress and Gown BagsDress bags and gown bags are great pieces of luggage for any woman who needs to pack formal clothing while traveling. They allow you to pack easily wrinkled clothing such as dresses, suits, and blouses on hangers, eliminating the need to have items dry-cleaned or steamed when you arrive at your final destination.
The only difference between a dress or gown bag and a traditional garment bag is size. Because of the additional length needed to hang a dress, dress bags are usually longer in length than garment bags, but equal in width. As a result of their length, gown bags typically fold in the middle, are soft and flexible as opposed to structured, and are carried over the shoulder.
The greatest advantage to purchasing a dress bag over a garment bag is its versatility. Gown bags can be used both with shorter items like blazers and blouses and with longer items like suits and dresses. Additionally, because of their flexible shape, travel gown bags tend to be less bulky and more compact than traditional garment bags.
