Finding the Perfect Scrubs for You
You’ve been there before. You have a co-worker or friend who looks great in their scrubs. So you try the same brand or style, only to find they’re not as flattering on you.
So how do you find the best scrubs for you? It’s important to consider factors such as comfort, styling and functionality. Here are a few tips:
1. Know your measurements
To find scrubs that fit comfortably, it’s important to know your basic measurements such as waist, bust, hips and inseams. Sizes vary from one brand to another so be sure to check the size chart of the scrub brand you’re considering.
2. Consider the fabric
Scrubs are made from a range of fabrics including cotton, polyester, spandex, and fabric blends. The fabric you choose can make a big difference in weight, breathability, durability and comfort. Choose fabrics that fit your preferences, such as moisture-wicking fabrics that keep you cool and dry or fabric blends that contain spandex if you want something stretchy that moves with you. Some fabrics are lighter in weight, making them ideal warmer seasons or climates. And if you hate ironing, choose easy care scrubs like koi Lite, no ironing required.
3. Choose the right style
Scrub tops come in different styles, such as v-necks, mock-wraps, Henley necks, and zipper-necks. Jogger-style pants can be both fashionable and comfortable. Choose a style that flatters your body type and fits you comfortably. Also, for best color matching, it’s best to pair tops and pants from the same scrub collection.
4. Look for functional features
Consider scrubs that offer features that may be useful for your job, such as pockets (some scrubs offer cellphone or hidden pockets), loops for ID badges or holding instruments, and D-rings for keys. (Close up of a pocket)
