For more than a decade, the sheer act of getting through airport security has become the world’s most hated part of traveling. Ask anybody who’s flown on a plane since 9-11 and you’ll likely get an earful about the hardships of simply trying to get on your darn plane. Even if things go according to plan, you still have to run a gauntlet of crowded lines, removed shoes, and grumpy passengers. It sucks. Of course, if you head into the TSA line outfitted with the right clothes, you can make your next security stop much less aggravating, for you and the other passengers around you.
1. DON’T Wear a Skirt
Stick to pants when you’re going through the security line or you’ll likely make yourself a target for pat downs. TSA agents are obligated to make sure that your flowing skirt isn’t hiding some contraband. If you don’t want to get felt up by some nine-to-fiver (who will hate it as much as you do) then it’s probably a good idea to save the dress or skirt for after you get off the plane.
