The Right Fit

These must-have clothing items can help keep bakers comfortable and safe without breaking the bank.

Running Shoes 

Like most bakers, Jennifer Taylor-Miller, founder of FattyCakesNY in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, stands on her feet all day, so wearing the right shoes is a must. A simple running sneaker does the trick. “New Balance running shoes keep me from sliding all over the place,” Taylor-Miller says. And the extra cushioning prevents pain, even after a long day of baking, she adds.
