Your Medical Wardrobe: How to Choose a Medical Uniform

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Its true, company policy does dictate much of what goes into creating a medical wardrobe, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have choices of styles, materials, and more. In this article we’ll go through some of the options you have when selecting your medical wardrobe.


Your Medical Wardrobe: How to Choose a Medical UniformThere are many styles of medical scrubs out there, from tailored and clean cut to feminine or sporty. While women tend to be more versatile in their wardrobe, men tend to stick to short sleeves, simple solid-color scrubs pants, and perhaps a men’s lab coat. Deborah Fried, RN, an ICU nurse at Glendale Adventist Medical Center says she pays extra for her favorite type of scrub pants, petite drawstring pants.


TIP: Medical uniform styles tend to mirror general fashion trends. When choosing a style of uniform, take a minute to think about your most flattering street clothes. Do you take relaxed and sporty, or go towards things with that are more feminine? Straight leg jeans or flared? Pick a style you’ll enjoy years to come!



Picking the right medical scrub material for you is all about preference. 100% cotton gives you a soft and comfortable wear but combination fabrics can offer more of a give, which can be easier to work and move in. Other factors can go into the comfort of your medical scrubs, including elastic or drawstring pants.

It may not seem as important as the style and fabrics, but having options when it comes to color and patterns can make wearing scrubs more fun. Sanibel Scrubs offers several patterned scrub tops and warm-ups along with our solid color tops and pants.


TIP: When you’re choosing the colors and prints for your medical wardrobe, select colors that compliment your skin tone. Or you can shoot for a color that you love in pants and choose a top that compliments your complexion. That way you get the best of both worlds! 


A lot of people searching for medical uniforms look for certain qualities, like pant pockets, in order to make their lives easier. Have your scrubs work for you, not only be something to work in.  Decide what works the best for you, whether it’s pockets on the top, bottoms, in the front, or the back, and find pieces that fit your needs.
