I cannot renember having seen adults with headgear here.

Here in the Netherlands there are a lot of headgears,

My little sister had a headgear a half year ago, she wears it only at night, for about a half year.

And at my school there is a girl who wore almost every day a headgear to school

I only remember two occasions when I have seen somebody wearing a headgear in public. The first time was in primary school when a class mate wore a headgear for a couple of days (before she decided not to wear it any more at school).
The second time was - strange enough - a woman at the Starlight Express musical theatre in Bochum who sat in front of me in the audience. She was accompanied by her husband and child, and I really admired her courage to wear a headgear in such a place.

i was at summer camp one year.
there was a guy with a high pull headgear, i remember staring blatantly and not thinking about it. i really pitied him for having to wear it but i admired him as well. mixed feelings i suppose, lol

When I was a kid, one of my friends had headgear, but she usually just wore it at home and took it off to go outside. Nowadays I never, ever see anyone with it - oh except Dakota Fanning the actress was on tv showing off her headgear a few months ago.

I have headgear, but just wear it at home!!

I see people with headgear quite often, but it´s quite normal in Holland.

only once, a young kid going to a clinic.
A friend told me that she had a "device attached to her neck" and told me her experience... and I had to disimule my interest.
And finaly, I saw a adolescent in the subway who had brackets, and some kind of "structure" to enlarge his maxilar, and was conected like, I don´t know, nails or something, the iron get into his cheeks, I suposed that that kind of device has to leave the skin with scars.

I had a class mate in high school, she had to wear a headgear (at a time this wasnt popular). And a few years later my girlfirend had to wear a headgear (at the age of 21). But she really hated this appliance...

Was very common when I went to middle/high school. Although most did not have to wear it during the day, sometimes it would be done for a week or two for catch-up reasons. Had a few friends who had to wear it, it was fun to see it up close!

It used to be quite rare, but I would see one every 2-odd years or so.  But nothing the last couple of years.  The closest I’ve come to seeing headgear in public was, erm, myself, which I’ve done exactly once, after losing a bet.  The scariest experience of my adult life.

I was at an orthodontist's yesterday for my consultation and a girl about 11-12 years old walked out of the treatment area wearing a facebow with high pull headgear. As soon as she walked out the door, she fumbled around with it, and she had it off by the time she reached the car
