Question What To Wear to Winn Correctional Center

What can I wear to visit my man in February. I just called the prison and spoke with a snide woman who told me so wear "what I'd wear to church". Ha!! Can you see me coming in my Sunday best to visit a prison? NOT!!! Can I just wear some jeans, a sweater, and some boots?

I am coming from California and I was also told that the visit is just 2 hours AND I cannot visit on 2 consecutive days inspite of the fact that I'm coming from 1800 miles away. What kind of crap is that?

Just be conservative in what you wear. Try to wear a shirt with a collar on it. It's been my experience that a lot of institutions want you to wear a shirt with a collar on it. Of course, nothing low cut or revealing. I always bring a couple of shirts with me in case they get stupid.

Oh, and before you come to visit the next time, get your man to find out if you can have some kind of special visit due to the fact that you have to come so far. Sometimes some of these institutions make provisions for that kind of thing. But, your man has to ask.

Thanks! I was going to wear a sweater, some jeans, and some boots. Do you think that would be approrriate?
Can you tell me how the visit goes? Is it behind glass or face to face and in person? Can we hug or kiss? When he was at another jail, I was allowed to give him an inital hug and a peck on the lips and after that we had to sit across from them at a picnic style bench. Is it sort of the same?
I sent the warden a letter telling him that I'd be coming from 1800 miles away and requested to visit on 2 consecutive days. I'm waiting on his response.

It sounds like you have a good dress plan. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about how the visits go at Winn Correctional. Good Luck to you!!
