chef wear not made for womenI totally agree that chef wear largely makes people look a bit on the goofy side. Most of the pants balloon out and make women's butts look HUGE, and the coats, which are double breasted, make any women who has large breasts look like she has a BIG RACK. I agree that being a chef we shouldn't be so concerned about our looks and such since that won't affect the food in a way, but part of being confident with our selves is to feel good inside and out. It's not really saying that we should be shallow and ONLY focus on how we look on the outside, it's just if we look like a dork it's hard to feel confident. I struggled with this quite a bit in my youth working at Hot Dog on a Stick and having everybody walk by and laugh at my uniform. It did eventually build my character as I got older, but it sure made me feel uncomfortable as a young teenage girl.
I do wish there were more options for professional looking women's chef wear. Yes, there are coats that are fitted better, but they sure are spendy! I am going to switch to scrubs, and there are a few more options with fit styles etc. Try allheartchefs.com for some different options.
