A dressing is an adjunct used by a person for application to a wound to promote healing and/or prevent further harm. A dressing is designed to be in direct contact with the wound, which makes it different from a bandage, which is primarily used to hold a dressing in place. Some organisations classify them as the same thing and the terms are used interchangeably by some people. Dressings are frequently used in first aid and nursing.

I tell all my customers and clients, ‘This is God’s store and I have the privilege of working here,’ the store has been completely fulfilling. I get to show men the dignity that they deserve. I want my customers to feel their very best and experience the quality of a fine suit that they can wear forever. I like dressing up people to show them how beautiful they are. I see beauty in all people. Sometimes people don’t realize their own beauty. So I get to show them just that through [clothes]. It gives me the same fulfillment as acting because it allows me to create a personal connection with someone. And I help them experience a sense of joy.
