Do you wear your regular clothes or cooking clothes to cook in?

I will wear my cooking clothes.. I have seen a woman wear what she had on from work to cook in.. Her clothes were worn from an office, so she cooked in her working clothes.. I am afraid to do this, because I don't want any spills on my clothes..

I could never do that! My career or work clothes would have to be saved just for work. I value all my clothes and it's so rare for me to get anything new, so I try to take care of it all. At minimum I would wear an apron, if I couldn't change clothes. But most times, I wear something very casual for cooking time.

I am too scared I will splatter food on me so I usually will change out of my good clothes . Or, heck even have used an apron , or just in bra . I hate stains more than anyhing , so I always try to be careful.

I wear regular clothes. However I usually get into something a little more comfortable before I start cooking when I come home from work.

I'm afraid I cook in whatever I happen to be wearing! It's casual stuff, so it doesn't matter - and I guess if I was a working woman and had a nice suit on, I'd change first or wear an apron. It definitely wouldn't be good to get grease splatters on nice work clothes!

I would change out of my work/office clothes. They are too expensive to get stained on that will never wash off. Also I am more comfortable in my home clothes.

When I get home I usually change into shorts and a tank top or tshirt just for comfort. Also, I have small kids so if I get my clothes messed up with spills or messes at least it is not my "good clothes" that I wear to work (well I presently am not working due to having a little one) or that I wear to church, etc. I cook in my "at home clothes". I have never owned an apron but that is what they are for - to protect your clothes while cooking. If I was going to wear my "good clothes" then I would definately wear an apron when doing so.

I wear a typical clothes when i cook. We call this "pambahay clothes"..shorts and blouse. I'd rather wear this because its more comfortable and convenient to cook...no hassle.

I always wear my regular clothes when cooking. I don't ever wear my good "going out" clothes though as I am also afraid of spills and stains. If anything gets on my regular clothing I don't mind though, I just change them and throw it in the washer. Gets clean easy.

I don't have special cooking clothes but since most of my clothes are old anyway I don't usually change them. I have a few nice things I won't wear around the house, though.

I just wear whatever I'm wearing at the time and make it a point to be extra careful. I don't have cooking clothes. I have clothes that I tend to wear when I'm relaxing and I'm usually in those, but even so, the clothes that I wear out during the day I'll wear whenever. If I spill something, it comes right off and I put a stain remover on it and toss it in the wash.

I always wear my regular clothes in cooking. I was not used to have any cooking clothes and didn't also grew up seeing my mom having it, so, maybe it's more on influence!

I usually cook in whatever I'm wearing at the time. I never change clothes specifically for cooking. I try to be careful not to be messy, but if something does spill..Oh well.

If i am wearing a good dress or a light colored dress i make sure to wear an apron over it. I am a careless person and i usually spill and dirty my dresses when i cook..So it is better to wear the apron. But if i forget the dress will be in a good mess
