A pannus stomach is commonly referred to as an apron belly or a mother's apron. The apron hanging belly is a flap of excess skin, tissue, and adipose tissue (body fat) that hangs at the bottom of the abdomen.
An apron belly occurs when the adipose tissue surrounding the internal organs expands (often due to pregnancy), resulting in an additional apron-like flap under your abdominal muscles and in front of your intestines.
Then, depending upon the size of the apron, you might use pads or powders (anti-fungal powders are best, and many plus size women recommend Micro-Guard Powder) to keep the area dry for the duration of your day.
When adipose (fat) tissue around the internal organs expands, this can result in the lower abdominal area growing and hanging down, causing an apron-like flap. Pregnancy, weight gain, and extreme weight loss can result in an apron belly.
Good hygiene is critical to help prevent the skin under an apron belly from developing rashes and other dermatological issues. Make sure to get fully dry following bathing and when experiencing perspiration. Anti-chafing cream can also reduce skin irritation.
This has a lot of great information and I wish I'd read it before I went in to be induced (I read a LOT of other articles on your site that helped). I wish it was a help for me for my issue. I have fluid retention in the apron belly area. It has increasingly gotten worse since my c-section 11 months ago. My doctors don't seem to have any clue what can be done to help. If I lay on my stomach, it feels like a rolled up towel is in that area. It is painful.
I literally cried when I found this page! I didn't even know my 2nd belly was called an apron! Ive had mine now for 12 years and I've had horrible back pains and rashes. I I was ever told was lose weight. I also have pcos. I'll be talking to a doctor about treatments. Now! I finally have hope. Thank you all so much!
To understand the blue crab life cycle, we will follow a female blue crab from birth to reproduction. The blue crab starts her life as a larva, an early-life stage that looks completely different than her adult form. She will spend 31-49 days going through seven larval stages called zoea. In each stage she is similar in appearance, but is slightly larger than in the last stage. Even this early in life, crabs have a hard outer shell (exoskeleton). In order to grow and change stages, the larva must molt, which means shed or cast off its shell. During molting, the exoskeleton splits, and the soft-bodied larva backs out of the hard shell. The animal remains soft for a short while, and swells up by absorbing water. Then, minerals from the seawater (especially calcium) harden the outer covering, forming a new exoskeleton. When the larva loses the extra water, it shrinks and leaves space within the exoskeleton for growth.
Sometime between March and December, when temperatures exceed 22oC (72oF), the female crab moves into the upper waters of the estuary where male crabs are concentrated. Most female blue crabs reach a terminal molt, after which they no longer grow. This molt coincides with the onset of sexual maturity when mating occurs. Evidence suggests that some females molt a second time after becoming mature, allowing them to produce more batches of offspring. Because of the hard exoskeleton, mating must occur directly after a molt, while the female is still soft. To ensure he will be there when she is ready, a male will usually cradle a pre-molt female in his legs. He also protects her during the vulnerable period after she molts, until her shell becomes hard again. After mating, the female moves offshore into higher salinity water while the male remains in the estuary for the rest of his life. Along the west coast of Florida, female crabs also migrate northward toward the Apalachee Bay region.
The female can retain sperm for a year or more before extruding eggs. This allows crabs mating in fall or winter to wait until warmer weather to hatch their eggs. Eggs are fertilized as they pass out of the crab's body and are deposited under the apron. The apron is actually the curled-under abdomen, and has small appendages to which the eggs attach. Egg masses have an average of two million eggs, and can have up to eight million eggs. At first the egg mass appears orange due to the high amount of yolk in each egg, then turns brown as yolk is consumed and eyes develop. After one to two weeks the eggs hatch into zoea larvae.
Why? Bright orange crabs are less likely to survive if thrown back. The darker crabs will release their eggs sooner than the lighter crabs (the color darkens as the eggs develop), so they're hardier. Many people choose to return all sponge crabs to the water as a conservation measure.

The minimum size for hard-shell blue crab is 5 inches, except mature females. Mature females (sooks) are identified by the rounded apron on their under side. Once this stage of development is achieved, females stop growing. Therefore, female blue crabs with a U-shaped apron may be retained at any size. Females bearing eggs, commonly known as sponge crabs, may not be taken and should be returned to the water immediately.
It is unlawful for any person to attempt to take, catch, kill or reduce to possession any hard clams with a device other than a hand-held rake with a head no wider than fourteen (14) inches measured perpendicular to the tines and a straight handle not in excess of seven (7) feet in length.

Fold the fabric in half with wrong sides together, aligning the selvages together. Lay the apron bodice pattern piece on top of the fabric and align the fold line with the fold of the fabric. Lay the neckband, waistband, and pocket pattern pieces on the fabric as well. Pin the fabric in place and cut around the outside of the pattern pieces.
Jo Ann fabrics has a whole line of printed canvas that is perfect for these and other aprons! Another had posted to inquire about other styles of aprons. I personally have trouble wearing the type that goes around the neck like this style.
Just made a batman apron for my grandson who loves to help his mama in the kitchen. It looks real cute black fabric with the yellow trademark batwing all over it. I used bright yellow thread to sew it up and added extra stitching along the ties to punch the stitching up. It looks cute, and he says it awesome. Wanted to put it on and make something right away.
Hello, and thank you for the pattern!My grand-daughter will soon be 7 .. but is tall & into a size 8/10 in some clothes and 10/12 for length of pants etc in others. (tall & slender).I purchased a child's apron (guide) from Michael's and it was really too small for her.
Very disappointed. I purchased 1 1/4 yard of fabric and it is not nearly enough to fit all the pattern pieces for the adult apron. I even double checked the one inch square to be sure I printed everything correctly and it did all print correctly. I can no longer get the fabric I was planning on using, so unfortunately this project isn't going to happen. It's too bad because I watched the video ahead of time and the instructions seemed very clear and easy to follow.
How it fits: This apron adjusts to fit sizes extra-small to extra-large. The straps are long enough to double around and tie in front for those up to a size 12 or 34 waist; alternatively, anyone can simply knot them at the back. This Hedley & Bennett apron hits above the knee on people who are 5 foot 2 and taller, which made it a favorite with testers who were on the shorter side. 781b155fdc
