5 Things Healthcare Professionals Should Consider WHEN CHOOSING SCRUBS

For many professionals in the healthcare industry, wearing scrubs as a work uniform is a way of life. In fact, a scrub set that includes a loose-fitting top and pants is the standard attire for healthcare workers in the U.S. and several other countries. Many hospitals even have uniform regulations that specify a particular color, cut, and fit.

Whether you’re on or off duty, you want to look and feel your best. And since you’ll be rocking scrubs during 10+ hour shifts, you want to find the perfect pair that compliments your individual style.

Here are five tips to keep in mind when buying the right scrubs, regardless if they’re a fun and bold pattern or a specific color designated by your workplace.

1.      High Quality Scrubs

When you’re on the hunt for medical scrubs, ensure that they are from a trusted manufacturer. You don’t want to be bothered during your hectic shift with loose stitching, washed out color, and linty scrubs. Thankfully, our online store is packed with brands that you can trust, including Barco, Cherokee, Dickies, and Koi.

2.      Necklines

When it comes to selecting a neckline, you’ve got plenty to choose from, including mock wrap, V-neck, round, and square. But how do you know which one is right for you? It’s all about personal style and comfort. As long as your employer is okay with the style aspects, buy the one that makes you feel good.

3.      Fits

As with necklines, scrub fits come in a variety of choices, including trendy, more up-to-date cuts and fits. Scrubs like the Koi Women’s Stretch Naomi feature a form-fitting style, split neckline, and stitching details that accentuate your natural form. It’s important to be aware of your many fit and style choices so that you can find the ideal scrubs for you.

Along with fashion, comfort is also essential in finding the correct fitting scrub. Make sure that your scrub selection gives you enough room to move freely, is figure flattering, and makes you feel comfy and confident all day long. Out new selection of stretch scrubs move with your body and are the perfect combination of comfort and style.

4.      Pockets

Many scrub options come with check pockets and patch pockets. Both of these assets can come in useful when you need quick access to important items, such as a pen, phone, or your ID badge.  While pockets should be a necessity, the type of pocket you pick is up to you. If loading a chest pocket puts distress on your shoulders and neck, opt for patch pockets.

5.      Drawstring vs. Buttons

      When selecting scrub pants that are either drawstring or buttoned, ensure that the pants don’t fall down past your hips or display any inner wear when you bend. This isn’t only unprofessional, but super embarrassing. Before you wear the scrub pants on the job, try them on to guarantee a perfect fit.
