As someone who has been designing and supplying the hospitality industry with uniforms for many years, I can attest to the importance of having a good apron. Not only does it help you feel more professional, but it can also help with things like posture and comfort.
One type of apron that I particularly love is the cross-back strap apron. Not only does it look great, but it actually helps with your posture. The cross-back straps pull your shoulders back, which in turn helps to improve your posture. It's like wearing a light backpack. And, since it's so comfortable, it's perfect for long shifts.
Another great benefit of the cross-back strap apron is that it can be personalised. Whether you want to add your name or a cool design, it's easy to do with this type of apron. This is a great way to make your uniform feel more like your own and show off your personality.
Whether you're new to the industry or a seasoned veteran, this brief article will give you everything you need to know about cross-back strap aprons.
What is a cross-back strap apron & why is it used?
A cross-back strap apron is a type of protective garment that is used in a variety of work or hospitality settings. It consists of the body of the apron with two straps that cross the back and two additional straps that wrap around the waist and provide extra support.
This apron design helps to ensure that the cross-back strap apron stays in place even when moving around or performing highly active tasks.
How to put on a cross-back strap apron
Hold the apron with the front of the apron facing forwards. Hold one cross-back strap in each hand, slip your head between 'V' at the top of the straps and pull the straps over your head to sit onto your shoulders.
Tie the waist straps around the front of your body and secure them in place with a knot or a bow.
Adjust the sliding buckles on the cross-back straps to suit your body height.
That's it, you're now ready to work or serve.
With practice, you can tie your cross-back strap apron on quickly and easily, making it an ideal choice for all your food prep, cooking, baking and serving needs.
Can I adjust the straps for a perfect fit?
Yes, to adjust the straps for a perfect fit on a cross-back strap apron, slide the buckles on each strap to shorten or lengthen the straps to your ideal body height.
If you're looking for a new hospitality uniform, I highly recommend the cross-back strap apron. It's functional, stylish, and can be personalised to suit your needs.
Try one or both of these styles of aprons and feel the difference in your posture after one shift.
