A few years ago, there was a company that made large zip lock bags for just this purpose, okay, more so any clothes. I recall there were a few different sizes. 2'x3'. 3'x4', etc. Being made for storage. Shortly after, it seem to be M.I.A.

Does anyone remember or know of another company that makes them?

There are vaccum seal bags about that size. Have thought of folding WWI uniforms between plain muslin and partially vaccum sealing them. Then just gave them all to son, real easy! He and grandson can enjoy them now. Think wally world has them or Bed Bath and Beyond.

I grab the zipper bags that sheet sets come in.  I get strange looks when I ask for them but they work quite well.

The bed and bath store should work.

That is what I would do too... great handy pretty much neutral plastic too.

 

Long long long term though (as in anything over a decade) it is a good idea to put some neutral pH padding to fill out/cushion where the garment folds - otherwise not a good result eventually.

Walmart used to sell zippered garment bags - they were in the aisle with hangers, moth balls, cedar blocks, etc.
