aprons for LMNOP Bakery
PURPOSE, FABRIC, STYLE, STRAPS, POCKETS
Are you cooking, baking, throwing pottery, crafting, gardening? A full apron also called a bib apron is great for cooking and throwing pottery. It keeps splatters at bay. And then when you are washing dishes the apron will take the soak instead of your clothes. Half aprons, also called waist aprons, are good for baking because there isn't a lot of splashing going on. Also good for gardening. I know I always wipe my hands on my apron after baking or getting my hands in the dirt. Crafting doesn't really have splashing of ingredients so a waist apron is enough for the job. However, lots of pockets are good on a crafting apron to keep scissors, pencils, measuring tape, glue and any other supplies.
FABRIC: denim or canvas is good for the kitchen and pottery. Because the fabric is more sturdy liquids won't soak thru onto your clothes. If you grab hot pot handles with your apron, a thicker fabric also protects your hands as opposed to linen. Fabrics with texture hide stains better. Think twill or jacquard.

Finally, pockets. One is fine, two is better, three is great. They should be deep. Think of a phone. When you bend over you don't want your phone falling out. Waiters and waitresses use their pockets for a pad, or iPad, pens, straws, their personal items. Gardners use it hold all their tools.
Having an apron just makes it easier to stay clean and not ruin your clothes.
Now you know. Stay clean!
