Medical Scrubs: Stretchy vs Traditional Fabric

Friday, November 17, 2017


At Sanibel Scrubs, we carry many different colors, styles and prints in our affordable scrub collections. One common question we get from people shopping for scrubs for the first time or looking to freshen up their medical wardrobe is, “Which is better – stretchy or more traditional scrubs?”

Though this question occurs often, and definitely each has its own pros and cons, in the end it really comes down to personal preference and what types of tasks you perform during the day.

With that being said, let’s get into some of the differences:

Stretchy Medical Scrubs

In recent years, scrubs made with fabric that stretches have become a popular choice among professionals. These types of fabrics often have a higher polyester content, which give the fabric its flexible feel.

At Sanibel Scrubs we have our Sanibel Stretch line of scrubs, which include wrap top and v-neck options as well as cargo pant and drawstring pant options. The comfortable stretch material lets you move with ease and is great for whatever comes your way.

Traditional Medical Scrubs

If you’re looking for a medical wardrobe that feels a bit more rugged and sturdy, a more traditional fabric blend might work better for you.

Our Sanibel Works collection, which has unisex and women’s styles, are made with a 65% polyester and 35% cotton poplin fabric. There are also multiple colors to choose from and are available for a very affordable price, unlike some other high-end brands.

No matter which fabric choice works best for you, we can help you find the perfect style for you.

Sanibel Scrubs specializes in medial scrubs, lab coats, and other medical wardrobe for both men and women. As a private label brand, we are able to offer you the best quality and best prices. We understand what you expect from your uniforms and it's our goal to provide it. View our scrubs today and Escape the Ordinary.
