Care Designs' tabard style bibs for teenagers and adults offer the best in modern, comfortable and dignified design combined with long lasting materials. Made with our own high quality PRO80™ fabric, they are 100% waterproof (excluding the sewn part of the pocket), absorbent, strong, virtually stain proof and wonderfully soft, flexible and comfortable to wear. They are machine washable at up 60°C. and tumble drier proof. The tabards will stay clean and smart looking much longer than traditional bibs and are very durable for added value.
The designs have a subtle, over-the-shoulder shape which provides the attractive and dignified look of a tabard but with a short back, making it an easy shape to put on and take off. The tabard bibs have wide shoulder coverage and are ergonomically shaped on the front to enable free arm movement at mealtimes. They have long lasting, sprung steel, snap fasteners which are reinforced to ensure they stay firmly fixed in place. These allow wide adjustment around the neck to suit most sizes.
The bibs have large pockets which can be folded flat to the back, out of sight, if desired, and have a stretchy edging material for excellent comfort.
