I don’t know about you, but I am kind of a messy eater. For some reason, it’s seems hard to balance food on my fork and it barely gets into my mouth. I get teased for not knowing how to use chopsticks, but really, when it seems like I can barely use a fork sometimes it seems really extra silly for me to try and use chopsticks. I always get crumbs, or noodle bits, or bits of sauce all over myself. It creates weird stains on my nice shirts which then have to become my “wear only at home” shirts. The other day I was eating a lemon filled donut and I managed to bite down and push all of the lemon filling out so it plopped right onto my desk (for once not onto my shirt). Major sigh.
Wearing a plastic bib or a napkin on my shirt always made me feel like people were staring at me (though I’m sure no one was), so I just let bygones be bygones. Until now, that is! Enter this new product that was sent to me for review: DressTiez!
DressTiez is a clothing protector. Kind of like a super fancy, really nice, reuseable bib. But don’t say “bib”. It’ll make you cringe inside. But really… it’s an adult bib. It looks like it’s made out of a nice fabric (they have different styles to choose from) so it matches with whatever you’re wearing.
Here I am, dining out at Romesco a few weeks ago, wearing the Maroon DressTiez (which actually matched the shirt I was wearing). I don’t think you can really tell I’m wearing it, since my sweater is covering part of it.
But look! It totally is the bib clothing protector thing! It’s orange on the other side. It makes a semi-crinkly noise when you roll it up or unravel it.
One day at work I was wearing it because I was wearing a white shirt (white shirts are known to attract more spillage, you know) and I was having leftover spaghetti for lunch. And then I had an orange. And well… the orange’s juices got all over me.
But instead of going all over my shirt, the juice went all over the clothing protector instead! I didn’t have to finish out my work day with big old stains all over my nice white shirt. Which is something I have done so many, many times.
I’ve dropped a lot of things on this thing for far and nothing has ever soaked through to the other side. It just stays right on the protector. It’s wide enough to cover just about any spillage I could possibly have, and sits high enough for full coverage. It’s machine washable and rolls up and fits right into my purse. It also doesn’t wrinkle, so it looks nice even after being rolled up inside of my purse.
I have lamented so many times in my life that I needed an “adult bib” after so much food spillage so having this clothing protector is a dream come true! DressTiez retails at $29.99 for the basic cloth protector. You can buy them online on their website at: http://dresstiez.com.
