View Full Version : Wet bathing suits in carry-on?

I know this is a crazy question, but with the new security measures (no liquids in carry-on except those that fit the 3-1-1 rule) has anyone ever ran into problems packing wet bathing suits in carry-on? We want to get the most out of our week, and on our last day (flight leaves at 6 pm), we plan to spend the day at the resort's pool after check-out (no park tickets left) and figured we'd just wring out our suits and put them in ziplock bags (but bigger than the quart-sized) and pop them in our carry-on. Our resort has resort check-in and Magical Express, so I don't think our checked baggage will be accessible when it's time to get on the bus.
Any thoughts? I have terrible visions of security thinking we might be trying to sneak "liquid flammables" in our carry-on via wet bathing suits, and pulling out our dripping bathing suits and throwing them in the trashcan at checkpoint!!!!

We came back with wet bathing suits in October and had no problems, to be honest I had not even thought about it being an issue, since it really is not a liquid. Our suits were just damp, we had them in plastic bags and in our carry ons, and no one said a word.

Thanks for your experience -- i feel very relieved that we will not be arrested! The real question, I guess, is if I should worry because I DID think of it, lol!

No worries there. But to tell you the truth, with the Florida sun all bathing suits dry in minutes. I would just have everyone get out of the pool ten minutes early and sit for awhile, and dry off. I've never walked away in a soaking wet suit.
