Whether you are working in a hospital, dental office, or veterinary clinic, most employers have some dress code when it comes to your medical scrubs. While some are stricter than others, your options for purchasing medical scrubs are nearly endless. You can choose from the plethora of colors, patterns, shapes and cuts.
Here are some tips for buying medical scrubs:
#1 Find Your Color
Some employers only allow white scrubs. If this is the case for you, be sure to buy scrubs that are safe to bleach. You can check our tips for getting stains out of medical scrubs here.
Thankfully, most employers allow colored scrubs, though some require certain colors to match with the team or brand. Colors can be mixed and matched as well as paired with accessories to really bring out your personality. Just be sure that you invest in quality scrubs so that your colors don’t fade and the fabric will stay strong after plenty of washing.
#2 Check for Functionality
Especially in the nursing field, medical scrub tops and pants with pockets are must haves! From stethoscopes to pens and more, your pockets have to hold it all. Check to make sure your scrubs have plenty of pockets and that some of them are large enough to hold even something as large as an iPad or notepad.
#3 Quality and Quantity
Making sure your scrubs are both comfortable and stylish are top priorities when selecting your medical wardrobe. Choosing scrubs that are either 100% cotton, cotton and polyester blend, or cotton with organic stretch fibers, ensure quality and comfort.
Comfort doesn’t have to be the only factor in choosing your scrubs however. You can find fashion even in a medical wardrobe. For example, our scrub tops have a stylish notched neckline and mock wrap look, while a dart on either side of the back give it a flattering fit. You can even find our tops in prints and patterns!
Just make sure you have enough scrubs to get you through laundry day. No matter how fashionable you may look, stains and dirt are never in style.
