Let me guess...you have a love/hate relationship with your apron? You love the protection but feel swallowed by it’s frumpy silhouette? Me too! I’ve always loved my aprons and how they prepared me mentally and physically for the task at hand. But I never loved how I looked in an apron: I would need to knot the neck loop and fold the apron up over my waist to get it to fit.
The bib apron and its offspring (the French chef apron) are unisex, one-size-fits-all designs that are made from a single fabric panel with trim that is tied to fit—not designed to fit—and thus has all the disadvantages that come with under designed functional accessories.
The bib apron hangs heavy on the neck and drapes poorly at the front chest.
The bib apron pops out at the sides of the thighs.
The bib apron has a tie-back closure that adds bulk exactly where we Americans need it the least—the waistline.
