Default Rolling clothes instead of folding - does this really work?

Several times I've heard people say by rolling your t-shirts/cotton shirts, instead of folding them, they remain wrinkle free? Is that possible? If so, do you fold them first then roll them?

I have tried rolling and it doesn't make them any less wrinkly than folding. Maybe I am doing it wrong!

Sarah....I too have tried rolling them ....and the "leave them in the plastic dry cleaners bag" approach....and no matter how I fold my clothes, they end up wrinkled.

Wrapping your clothes in tissue paper helps.

I always roll my clothes......there may be a few wrinkles but you hang them up & the wrinkles come out......don't roll them super tight.....takes up less space too.....packed 2 30" under 50 lbs suitcases for a 21 day cruise.......<S>

That's really the key for avoiding and minimizing wrinkles: Pack very loosely, whether it be by rolling, in tissue paper, plastic, whatever. The less there is in your suitcase, the less pressure there is on the items inside. Soft-sided luggage doesn't protect its contents from external pressure as well as hard-sided, but even there the sidewalls help protect lightly-packed contents better than tightly-packed contents.

So what if you clothes are wrinkled you are on a cruise... relax enjoy life....

The only thing I would be concerned about would be my suit for formal night... and you know what I will crumple it up and pack it... and send it out to the cleaner the first night on board.
