Women’s Chef Coats

Women’s chef coats enable you to portray who you are and the industry you represent in a very professional manner. There is a high level of respect given to a person in a clean looking chef coat especially when the uniform is cut to fit a women’s body shape. In wearing a good quality women’s chef coat you set yourself apart from other staff members in the sense that you have achieved a level of professionalism and are proud to openly display that fact.

The people who will notice your professional image are the ones who matter most as in your customers and upper level managers/owners of your establishment. This respect goes hand in hand with your own self confidence which shows in the way you carry about your job tasks.

Looking professional is very important but the real benefit to you in wearing a women’s chef coat is that the design of the chef coat is made to fit a woman’s body shape. In this sense the uniform does not look as though it is oversize or sloppy looking as when a woman wears a man’s cut chef coat.

When selecting your preferred women’s chef coat style the first consideration should be on the fabric type. There is the 100% Egyptian cotton and a 80% polyester / 20% cotton fine line twill and both fabric types have there good and bad points.

The poly/cotton blend fabric will provide you with a chef coat that will shed liquids better as the polyester in the fabric blend helps in this matter. The 100% cotton will tend to soak up the liquids more.

The poly/cotton blend does not breath as good as the 100% cotton which makes the 100% cotton more comfortable in hot conditions. The cotton also has a much softer feel against your skin. On the plus side the blended twill will generally wear longer given the same work conditions.

Even though the poly/cotton blend will last longer then the 100% cotton the women’s chef coats due tend to grey after a few years of use and can not be restored to their original bright white even through bleaching.

One disadvantage with the 100% cotton coats is that the cotton tends to shrink more then the poly/cotton blend. The blended twill also appears to dye a brighter white and has the ability to stand up to multiple washings as the fabric is more durable then the cotton counterpart.

Depending on what features you want in a women’s chef coat style following is a list of chef coat features available and which style of coat has those particular features included in the design.

It is my intention to show you what features you like and the corresponding chef coat that has the particular options you prefer in the design of the coat. You can also see what type of fabric goes along with the choices available. This will help in deciding what you really want as opposed to the amount of money you would like to spend on the uniform.

For instance you may want a stand up collar in a 100% cotton women’s chef coat due to the characteristic of cotton’s breath ability. On the other hand you may want that same stand up collar in a lower cost polyester cotton blend chef coat.

Following are three styles of women’s chef coats that I have provided a brief description of each coat and the good qualities of each style and the differences.
