My grandma and great aunt both wore the full body apron, as did others of their generation. All the pockets made sense.

I usually do. I noticed I was getting stains on my shirts about waist level and up, especially when I was sauteeing something I have one I got from my grandmother's after she died and DH has given me a couple. I even still have one from when I worked in the dining hall in college many moons ago. Don't use it much, though - it's plain green.

I buy them...sometimes I remember to put one on. Funny, when I worked in kitchens and bakeries it would be the first thing I would look for. Since, I'm no longer working in those places I don't seem to think about it.

Some of our male folks need this for their Q'íng:
