Water always splashes up on me while I do dishes and I wear an apron. Even with my apron, the water would seep through and I'd have a wet splotch on my belly. With this, I haven't had that issue at all!
In addition, I always worry about the fit of aprons, but because this was tie on both openings, I was able to customize it to sit exactly where I want it!
The fact that the whale pattern is so fun and cute is a huge bonus! Definitely recommend!
