With all the money and attention-to-detail that goes into the medical industry, it would seem that medical wear is often one of the few areas that gets left in the dark, as many of the lab coats and dress attire are more than seldomly too big, bulky or just plain unflattering. This is especially prevalent in physicians and doctors who have to wear petite and 00 sizes. A recent Reddit post emphasised this point:
“I just purchased my first real lab coat for the undergrad labs that I am taking, a Dickies brand unisex SX. I was concerned with the quality of lab coats I was finding on Amazon (it appeared that most were meant more for Halloween costumes than lab work) and I am tired of the Tyvex one that I was given my freshman year, so I was excited for the one that I had purchased. However, after it arrived in the mail today, I tried it on and it is too big. I’m a petite woman ~5’3″ and 115 lbs, but SERIOUSLY? It’s an EXTRA small! That is the smallest size they have!”
Fortunately for women who share this frustration, Medelita constructed the first true petite lab coat for female clinicians. The Ellody lab coat fits like a custom tailored suit jacket and is made with Medelita’s innovative stain repellant and breathable M3 fabric. Simply put, this lab coat is flattering for anyone 5’4″ or under and it guarantees all-day protection and comfort.
