is there such a thing as wrinkle free clothes?

Jump to last reply

In the planning stages of dual country trip, with extremes. extremes in cultures and climates.
we are heading to Egypt and Italy.

We wish to respect both cultures but are finding it hard to pack appropiate, non-crushing clothes.
As females, we are aware to wear more conservative clothes in Egypt. but trying to find clothes (ie trousers, long skirts or dresses) that are either wrinkle free or are marketed as wrinkle free as a reasonable rate is becoming difficult.

where as in Europe it is said women are traditionally more 'femine' as in long dresses skirts and will betreated accordingly. just as in Egypt women who dress conservatively will be treated with more respect (differently) than those who dont..........so what should we pack and how to get it at a reasonable price?

please help, tips from packing to purchasing clothes, to each countries expectations (or traditions) on this would be great!!
