Do you wear an apron?

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure where to post this...

Do you wear an apron when you're in the kitchen?? Maybe you wear it at other times, too?

I do, but the apron I wear is super-duper ugly. I tie-dyed a white apron a couple of summers ago, and that's what I wear! It has some stains on it, too... Need a new one!

(Where do you find cute ones?? )

I do. I love it. I have three really cute aprons that I love to wear. Two of mine are made by Danica and i bought them off of One Kings Lane, the other one i just bought at TJMaxx for $12, they had a whole bunch when I was there a couple weeks age.

I wear one at work, but never at home. Can't stand them.

I own 1 apron, but haven't ever worn it. It was a gift & I actually love it, but I'm just not in the habit of wearing it. It is really cute - I kinda don't want to get it dirty!!

i have a couple of the plain white chef's aprons. the kind that have the neck strap and then tie around the waist. i wear those when i'm doing serious cooking or baking since i have a bad habit of wiping my hands against my thighs. i've ruined several nice skirts doing that and finally just gave up and started wearing the apron. sometimes i'll just tuck a towel into my waistband though.

I have a few, which I love. Honestly, I'd like to have a few more cute ones, because I get them dirty fast. (they're only good for a day or two. of course, not wearing one, I stain my clothes...)

I adore boojiboo's aprons:

I want lots of aprons, so I'll check out the sites people mentioned. I want enough of them to change them often enough for them to be really hygienic. There's a store called Hatley www.hatley.com (maybe?) that has silly animal puns on almost all their stuff. They had an apron with a duck that says "shut the duck up!" I don't use this language, but for some reason I find it hysterical. However, I don't feel I can have it yet; because I have no idea how to explain this to dd who is 6. There's also a beaver motif that says "dam tired" on a coffee mug and "dam it's raining" on an umbrella. I WANT that beaver! But again, the language is a little too strong for a school playground.

I don't for everyday cooking or baking, but I always wear one when I'm canning. I am awful about staining my clothes when doing tomato sauce. I have one that ties at the waist, but it's useless for me. I made my husband a John Deere bib apron years ago and that's the one I wear when canning. It's not cute or nice, so I don't worry about slopping it up at all.

I have a couple, but rarely wear them. If I'm doing a lot of baking I'll put one on.

The problem is that the "tie around the neck" aprons pull at my neck/shoulder muscles (where its' already weak from fibromyalgia) and hurt to wear. The ones that just tie around my waist are completely useless- food or flour ends up on my shirt above the apron. So I generally only wear an apron if I'm doing something especially messy.

No. I've never had one and haven't gotten into the habit. I really doubt I'd even remember to put it on anyways.

The ones that tie around my neck annoy the crap out of me plus they're never wide enough to cover my large boobs. I found one that crosses in the back, kind of like a little girl's pinafore. No pressure or rubbing on my neck and full coverage. It's more like an artist's smock.

I only wear it when I'm doing something especially messy or canning. I like being able to use it like a towel for my hands when doing stuff like peeling lots of peaches or tomatoes

I have one but I only get it out when I'm doing something messy or splattery. Unfortunately, I don't usually realize what a mess I'm making until halfway into whatever I'm doing, so I usually just get half the mess on my clothes and the other half on the apron.

The rest of the time, I wander around with a dish towel over my shoulder for wiping my hands/very small spills. It stays there through meals and functions as a napkin. Especially useful when I'm eating on the couch or in bed.

My apron isn't fancy. It's blue and white striped and from Williams Sonoma.

I have a couple of nice aprons--I like the Williams-Sonoma ones and they're generally thick enough to keep stuff from seeping through. I swear that cooking grease and tomato based foods are magnetically attracted to my clothing so I try to wear an apron whenever I cook, but I only succeed about half the time (my poor shirts).

Mine's adorable and lacey and I love it because it doesn't hang from my neck, but rather the straps go over my shoulders and crisscross across my back, and button to the sides. I don't put it on as often as I should though, and end up wiping my hands on my clothes or splashing water on my shirt.

I have two really cute aprons that my bff had her grandma make for me. One is read with white polka dots and the other is a dark blue with a pretty white flower pattern. They're so cute! Practical, too. I love aprons, I just wish mine where longer. We do historical re-enacting and i do have a couple very long aprons I wear during events and I love them, they're so versatile.
post #19 of 39
Yup. Always when I cook. I have three. One is a basic, white chef's apron. It's starting to look pretty dingy, though it certainly serves its purpose. I have a nice blue & white sort of Swedish looking one from Ikea which is attractive. My nicest is from Anthropologie. They have super cute aprons. It was a Christmas gift, and I wear it if I have guests over.

I HATE staining my clothes, so love my aprons.
