Top 5 Things to Consider When Choosing Medical Scrubs

Monday, June 17, 2019

Wearing scrubs is almost like a badge of honor for medical professionals.

Originally worn by surgeons and other operating room staff, scrubs are now a staple of any medical professional’s wardrobe. This means that more and more types of people are searching to find the best medical scrubs for them.

If you are going to buy a scrub uniform, here are some tips to finding the right scrubs for you:

  • Scrubs should be comfortable and flexible.

  • Scrubs should be loose enough to easily allow you to bend and move as needed.

  • Your scrubs should coordinate with your office or department if there is a color code.

  • Scrubs should have plenty of pockets to store supplies.

  • Your scrubs should reflect your personality.

5 Factors to Consider When Choosing Scrubs

1. Expensive vs. Affordable

While you want to select good quality scrubs, buying expensive scrubs can sometimes be a waste of hard earned cash. There are plenty of affordable scrub options on the market that are great quality. On the other hand, you don’t want to buy scrubs only because they are cheap because you do have to get good use out of them.

2. Basics vs. Trendy


When it comes to scrubs, basics never go out of style. They are designed to make you feel comfortable all day whereas trendy scrubs tend to prefer style over comfort. Our suggestion is to go simple at the workplace.

3. Fit vs. Loose

Generally we see scrubs that are loose fitting. For men’s scrubs, it can be hard to find a fit that is not too wide or too slim. (Another reason basic can be helpful.) For women’s scrubs, drawstring pants can help you to better adjust to your needs. Finding the most comfortable fit is crucial, so it’s better to lean towards a looser fit.

4. Less Pockets vs. More Pockets

Almost all of the scrub tops from Sanibel Scrubs feature patch pockets, which are incredibly useful in a medical workplace. You can store pens, medical instruments, as well as your cell phone. In addition to shirt pockets, our scrub pants also feature pockets, which can be used to store even more. Ultimately, more pockets are always helpful!

5. Color vs. Print Tops

Many facilities have a uniform for their employees, but if you have the flexibility to wear scrubs with fun prints they can really add some personality to your medical wardrobe. Printed scrub tops are especially great when you work with children. Printed tops pair great with a solid color pant.
