Nursing scrubs have come a long way over the past 10-15 years. Veteran nurses may remember when your choice of scrub tops was a plain boxy v-neck, a unisex v-neck or the occasional mock wrap top and your scrub pant choices were almost as limited. You may even think back to the white dress and box cap. Today nurses are able to purchase scrubs in multiple styles, but it's not just the styles that have changed. Fabrics are evolving, too. For years nursing scrubs were made from stiffer, starchier feeling material.
Well, no more!
Popular name scrub brands are now using softer materials which provide more comfortable work uniforms. If you've ever tried Jockey Scrubs, you'll know that all of their scrubs are made from a softer material that also incorporates stretch. Of course, if you like Jockey Scrubs, you should also check out Med Couture and new Fusion by White Swan. Both options are also soft and stretchy providing comfort, function and style for your medical scrubs.
If you are not a fan of that small percentage of spandex for stretch, not to worry, there are nursing scrubs out there for you, too. One of the most popular options right now is Grey's Anatomy Scrubs. With the right amount of softness added to a flattering fit, these scrubs are a fantastic and extremely popular choice. If you are new to soft scrubs and are not sure what brand to try, Dickies Soft Works is the perfect solution. Dickies Scrubs have been around for years and are trusted by many nursing professionals. Their brand new Soft Works line has only improved on what is already a trust scrubs option.
Of course, a scrub line wouldn't be complete without pants. Soft scrub pants are offered not only in regular length pants but also in petite pants and tall pants. As always, you should purchase your scrub pants from the same line as your scrub top to ensure the colors match.
