Quoting greatgrandmaR

Actually there is a great problem with women's clothing in that there are often no pockets
...
So it is overkill to say that we need an item of clothing which allows us to carry all our stuff when traveling without a suitcase. But designing something for women which has reasonably usable pockets (that things don't fall out of) and don't make bulges in the outline is not a trivial project.

That's exactly why I hardly ever wear dresses specially while travelling, you can use the hidden money belt but if you have to hike up your skirt to access it

I did once have something that rattled in a money belt on my shoulder and the TSA wanted to see it. I was with my grandson. I was wearing a dress and no bra, I didn't want to take the dress down from the top in the airport. so they took me into a separate room to take my dress off. My grandson was marvelously amused - he said "They took Grandma in for a cavity search"

If it had been a belt, I probably could have just hiked my skirt as I was not going commando.

This idea has been a thing for a long time. There are plenty of outfits where they actually carry EVERYTHING on them in their clothes. I agree with others who think that this idea is bulky and uncomfortable.

Also, ridiculous.

NOW I get what your other questions were about. I don't think you'd be able to work in a boa constrictor pouch regardless.

Good luck storming the castle, there is a community of folks who would be into this somewhere.

I will wear my heaviest clothing and shoes to fly to reduce the weight and size of the luggage I take. (as long as it is a fairly short flight).
