  • I would never wear one! Too June Cleaver for me. My MIL bought me one once. I was offended and threw it away!

  • I do when I'm baking from scratch and have a bad habit of almost wearing more flour than the recipe calls for. Its a great apron because it ties in the back (I tend to sample my wares a bit much) and goes over my boobs without being to tight. It also has pockets to put my rings in when I knead the dough.

  • Yes, because I almost always splatter something! I wear the kind that tie behind the neck. Just as long as it has a wide bib I am happy. No need for pockets or to be waterproof. IMO

  • I love my apron. I got it from IKEA. I love the pockets and it's cute. I keep it hanging on a hook in my kitchen and I wear it to protect my clothes for more than just cooking

  • Yes, I love aprons....I have the kind that I tie around my neck and waist....I like them to have big pockets and cover my clothing...thick denim cotton are my favorites..

  • The only reason I haven't been wearing one is because my kids keep stealing it. Haha :) I think stain resistant would be better than water resistant, I prefer just a few large pockets.

  • I have 2.
    One is a cute green fabric with ladybugs. It's a bib apron with a big pocket on each side. It's reversible, and my mil made it. I wear it when I bake, cook, or do major housework and I want to keep my clothes nice. It's great for wiping off little faces, too!

    The other one my great aunt gave me when I turned 18. It is a classic wrap around waist, black and white checked, with red and black hand embroidery all over it. It has 2 side pockets, and I use it when I'm hostessing or serving a nice meal.

  • Yes I wear one. Especially since I cook all meals from scratch. I would like durability. :)
