With so many different body types, scrubs have come a long way from the the “one style, one color” they started off as. Now, there are perfect scrubs for every body type. Below are our tips for different body types:
For ladies with a full chest, use scrubs that are one solid color and use the matching pants to go with. This will not only make you look slimmer, it will draw the eye away from the chest area. Also, make sure you wear scrubs that promote modesty. Scrubs that are a high v-neck or a crew neck are perfect for this body type. We suggest the Women’s AngelStat scrub top with a Keyhole neckline (869) matched with the straight leg, Cargo Pants with an Elastic Waist (674). Another option is the ComfortEase Tunic (8851) which has a modest v-neck line and the mock wrap. You can match this top with the ComfortEase Cargo Pants (950).
For the ladies who are pear shaped, the goal of your scrubs should be to draw the eye up towards your face. A great way of doing this is to go with neck lines that aren’t the typical v-neck or crew neck. Something like a mock wrap or keyhole neckline would draw the eye up to the face. Another idea would be to go with a printed top with dark scrub pants (like a brown or black). Our suggested scrubs for pear shaped nurses are the Suite Styles Crossover (4513) paired with the Suite Styles Low rise pants (7432S). For the print style, we suggest the Printed Tunic top (226) with the ComfortEase Reversible Pants with Drawstring (950).
For nurses who are tall, it is a battle to find scrubs that fit perfectly. Scrubs are either too long, or too short. One of the reasons is because manufacturers all have different lengths for their “tall scrubs”. It’s important to know what your inseam is so you can pick the perfect scrubs. Most retail sites also share the inseam in the product description. Another suggestion is to get scrubs that are snug to your body. Our suggested scrubs would be the ComfortEase Scrub top with 2 pockets and the ComfortEase Modern Fit Scrub Pants to get the fitted look that fits perfectly!
